The Wind Singer

(3 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Part one of the Wind on Fire trilogy

Publisher: Egmont

This is a stunningly original fantasy, set in the mythical city of Aramanth, where every hosehold is judged solely on its members' ability to perform in examinations. Only one family has the strength to rebel, fighting the system, and, in doing so, risks all.

Leaving their parents and baby sibling behind, Bowman and his sister, Kestrel, embark on a dangerous journey in search of secrets which will make the 'wind singer' sing once again, thus restoring normality to their world.

Their epic quest is depicted with a perfect balance of drama, tenderness and a touch of humour.
