Product description

Review

Praise for DARKHAVEN:

‘DARKHAVEN hooked me quickly with its assured prose, nonstandard secondary world, and willingness to explore shapeshifting from another angle … The prose remains elegant and assured throughout, and the story’s charms are enough to keep the reader engaged and interested’ In the Forest of Stories

‘I really enjoyed the concept of this book, and I was looking forward to finding out more about the shifter’s abilities and whether or not there were more shifters to be discovered. Overall, I loved the writing style … whilst the blend of characters complemented each other well and helped the story to flow at a good pace’ Book Chick City

‘The reader cannot help but be drawn in by such an amazing world in which the characters wander. The city runs on symbolism and ritual. Each person has a place, and each place has a meaning. The backdrop is beautiful, the characters are engaging, and although you might see the third act twist coming, Smith still provides plenty of surprises and intrigue to leave me eagerly waiting for what’s next’ Fangirls Read it First

‘What a very enjoyable start to series … a very engaging read that I really enjoyed and it ended on a perfect set up for the next book’ Lynn’s Books

If you haven’t read the first in this series, Darkhaven, please do. Then read the second (Goldenfire). Then read this. It’s suspense, mystery, war…Smith broadens the world beyond the confines of Darkhaven’s city walls, plunging the city into the middle of international politics and showing what having a Changer as ruler of Mirrorvale really means. It’s got some unexpected twists, and the end is definitely tense – I wasn’t in any doubt over the outcome, but there’s always a knife-edge moment of “will they…will they?” that makes the story brilliant. There’s some moments of brilliant humour as well – how do you keep a baby quiet when you’re in the middle of a fight? – and some proper pangs of “ohhhhh”. It’s an excellent read.

I absolutely love the way this world and series has developed – the world is unique, unusual, yet familiar enough that we settled in without questions. The characters are fabulous; I love seeing them develop and change over the course of the books, and now – well, no spoilers, but we get to see more of the background and history of some of the inhabitants of the castle, and more of the new recruits that joined the Helm. I’m loving Ree’s development and seeing her progress through the Helm, and her difficulties in this book are in a bit of a different area to the ones she’s used to dealing with!

I’m hoping that we see more of Lewis Tarran amongst other characters – I want to see more of the children, too, as Wren in particular looks like she’s going to be quite a challenge. There’s also a fun development at the end involving Naeve Sorrow which looks like it could provide some entertainment…

If you enjoyed the rest of the series then this is an excellent next book to carry on with, and I’m looking forward to the continuation!

Windsinger is a tense, exciting continuation of one of the most entertaining series I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Smith’s writing is powerfully emotive (Windsinger had me shedding tears in more than once place) and her storytelling has rapidly evolved from good to great to WOW.

Windsinger is the third instalment in a highly entertaining series that has gone from strength to strength. I won't elaborate too much from the previous two books but Smith has gradually developed a comprehensive world filled with politics and magical creatures that together prove to be a compelling combination. Each of the books has a murder mystery element to the story and Windsinger is no exception with a story that fairly quickly becomes a race against time. Please be aware that spoilers for the first two books in series may be lurking below.

Mirrorvale is an unusual country. Nestled in between two more powerful countries the only thing that really keeps the wolves from the door is the Nightshade family whose powerful shapeshifting abilities take on many forms. The family line is greatly diminished however and with only one shapeshifter currently in situ Mirrorvale sits on a knife edge. Unsurprisingly Ayla has a strong inclination to form a peace treaty and as the book begins preparations are being made to receive the Kardise ambassador. Ayla, being keen to show willing and offer the hand of friendship shrugs off the usual protocols and meets the Ambassador alone for informal discussion over a glass of the famous Taransey liquor produced in Mirrorvale. All goes well and by the end of the evening the promise of a treaty between the two countries is a real possibility, that is until the Ambassador turns up dead the following morning, clearly poisoned the evening before and with Ayla herself having poured the drinks herself. Things suddenly take a turn for the worse and contrary to peace it now seems that war between Mirrorvale and Sol Kardis seems highly probable.

I feel like this series has become richer as it goes on. A lot of the things the characters said resonated with me. Also, I'm rather fond of the character of Naeve Sorrow, so I was pleased to see her get some playing time. This is a good series, and I'm pleased to have been introduced to it.
