REVIEW: Wind Daughter

Echo North was a lovely wholly perfect fairy tale story about a young girl fighting to be seen and for those who she loved. When I saw that there was a sequel, I was quite surprised, wondering where the story could go. I’m not sure I would call this  a sequel, it’s more of an additional story in the same universe. In this story we get the story of Satu, who we met as a very young child in Echo’s story. She is the daughter of the man who was formerly the North Wind, the man who wrote Echo’s story. 

Satu is a fabulous character to have on the page especially for those of us introverts with sensory issues. She has some really well described moments of learning to cope in the world with others from her self imposed place of isolation. The story’s fantastical and magical elements were great and I loved the adventure and the reveal of just what Satu is facing. But the piece I really loved was Satu’s representation of an “overly sensitive” person struggling to integrate with the “normal” world. I’ve saved some of the passages off to help explain to others what it feels like in a much more eloquent way than I could. Her courage on her adventure to save the world and her true love made for a great journey.

Thanks to Page Street Publishing via Netgalley for access to this novel. All opinions above are my own.

What lesser known fairy tale or mythology character do you want a story about?
