A hauntingly beautiful fairy tale about love and loss, this Echo North companion novel is perfect for fans of the Winternight Trilogy. In the dark, cold reaches of the north lives a storyteller and his daughter. He told his daughter, Satu, many stories–romances like the girl who loved a star and changed herself into a nightingale so she could always see him shining–but the most important story he told her was his own.
This storyteller was once the formidable North Wind, but he lost his power by trading it away in exchange for mortality–he loved her mother too much to live without her. The loss of his magic impacted more than just their family, however, and now the world is unraveling in the wake of this imbalance. To save the North, Satu embarks on a perilous journey to reclaim her father’s magic, but she isn’t the only one searching for it. In the snow-laden mountains, she finds herself in a deadly race with the Winter Lord who wants the North Wind’s destructive powers for himself.
Satu has the chance to be the heroine of her own fairy tale, only this one has an ending she never could have imagined.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.
Satu’s father was once the formidable North Wind, who traded his magical powers to be mortal. By doing so, this upset the balance and unraveled the universe. Her childhood was fead on fairytales, by her father.
She feels more than most people, and has anxiety over large groups of people and small spaces. Her feelings of not fitting in changes when she realizes who she is.
Wind Daughter had me hooked from start to finish. I literally couldn’t put it down. This was unique and absorbing, I found myself completely immersed within this lush fantasy. Joanna Ruth Meyer, is an exceptional storyteller, I highly recommend this companion book to echo north. Written in lyrical prose, you will not be disappointed in this captivating and intriguing book.
