Book Description

26 April 2012 Windsingers 2

The Windsingers is Megan Lindholm’s second novel, following Harpy’s Flight, which introduced her popular gypsy characters, Ki and Vandien.

The Windsingers is Megan’s second novel, following Harpy’s Flight which introduced her popular gypsy characters, Ki and Vandien.

When Ki first encountered Vandien she very nearly slit his throat. Yet later it was Vandien who suffered a terrible wound to protect her when terror fell from the skies and who gave her a reason to lay to rest the bitter memories of a once idllyic past.

Vandien’s unrepentant recklessness led Ki into situations her sensible nature would have avoided. Yet it was Ki who, despite wizard-troubles of her own, risked the wrath of the Windsingers and saved Ki from his treasure hunt in the submerged temple of the storm-sung sea.

And it was Vandien’s stubborn daring which allowed him to attempt to reclaim Ki from beyond the Limbreth Gate – in another world entirely!

4.0 out of 5 stars Convergence 23 Feb 2006
By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Picking up nearly where the last book left off (although I got the impression there may have been one or two events in between, which seem only to have solidified the unique symbiotic relationship between Ki and Vandien) ‘The Windingers’ almost immediately sets Vandien (and the reader) onto a path beset by danger, leading to a mysterious challenge that none in this world created by Lindholm has yet accomplished. While at the same time an incalculable distance away Ki becomes entangled in the machinations of an arrogant wizard and his opposition of the all-powerful, all-female group known as the windsingers. And so this story goes…into somewhat predictable, yet inherently enjoyable fantasy territory. However, unlike book one and its exploration into the fraught relationship between harpies and humans, this second book in the series focuses largely on a new enemy and for the most part effectively divides Ki and Vandien, as each embarks upon their separate tasks. Despite this rending of our dynamic duo ‘The Windsingers’ continues to delight and sees Ki once again oppose enigmatic forces far more powerful than she, so there’s more than enough here to hold the reader’s attention.
Unfortunately though this book is not as good as ‘Harpy’s Flight’, partly due to the lack of such a personally-meaningful enemy to Ki, as the harpy was to her in book one. It’s also lacking in respect to the themes developed by Lindholm in book one e.g. with only fleeting references to the harpy-human struggle and the mention only once of the grievous losses sustained by Ki and the vengeance she took for them in the first book, ‘The Windsingers’ is an oddly out of context story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well really worth 3.5... 8 May 2002
By Mr. A. J. D. White VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is a fairly good book, its not brilliant unlike Megans work as Robin Hobb but it does show flashes of what she is going to show us.
One of the things i really didn't like about this book is actually nothing to do with how its written or anything like that, its to do with the way Megans earlier work is being republished to cash in on her success as Robin Hobb... Why couldn't they pair up her books? Why are they being drip fed to us? Why do I feel like I am being ripped off?
Now that I have that off my chest I will review the novel, it has well drawn characters who are understandable and realistic. From the bitter and twisted Janie to the rather strange and unhuman Dresh.
It is a rather strange world that Megan has created here with any number of weird sentient races that are hinted at but never really explored. Which I think is a shame as Megan has obviously gone to a lot of trouble to create them, as you will see with the Webshell incident.
All in all if you are a fan of Robins work and want to see her learning her craft this is a prime example of that, if you are looking for something a little different then this should be right up your street. However if you are looking for something on the same level as the Farseer or Mad Ships books then I would give this book a miss.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read 17 Aug 2002
Format:Paperback
I love the style of writting that is Megan Lindholm. The Windsingers is about a Gypsy called Ki and a brave warrior named Vandien that are bond together in each others furture, after a life is saved (Can't tell you who because i don't want to give this superb plot away). I highly recomend that people who enjoy a good read with a great and enchanting plot to buy this book as it is a great read you will not want to put down untill you know how it all turns out.
