White Wind Rising is an enchanting read for nearly all ages. I, a fully grown man, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Archer and his friends begin their odyssey in a delightfully painted fantasy world rich in imagination. We follow them on their quest which itself is rich in allegory, and become ever more invested in their survival and success.
The character of Burp - a baby dragon - was particularly well rendered, in my opinion, as were the sometimes surprising changes in pace and plot. Even the very narrative of their reality is brought in to question, and a subtle play between history, magic and legend begins to unfold.
Very much looking forward to future installments of this series.

I'm a great lover of all things involving magic and dragons and fantasy, but I've not picked up a book in years - there just seems to be too many other distractions nowadays. But I was advised by a friend to give 'White Wind Rising' a go, as it contains all the things I like in a story: strong, relatable characters, evocatively described settings and events, and compelling foreshadowing that keeps you turning the pages. Threads are weaved throughout this book, many of which are satisfyingly resolved - but some are left open, hinting at an exciting direction for future installments. I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series! The writing style is simple and honest without being patronising, so as a 33 year old literature graduate I was quite happy to indulge my inner kid and get in to the story. A really enjoyable tale that transported me away for a few days. I don't know why I ever gave up reading...
