Author(s): Lindholm, Megan
The Windsingers is Megan Lindholm'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 painfully bitter memories of a once-idyllic past.
However, Vandien's recklessness also leads Ki into situations her sensible nature would have avoided. For in order to save Vandien from his doomed treasure hunt within the storm-sung sea, Ki accidentally risks the wrath of the Windsingers, a mysterious female cult with the terrible power to manipulate the weather. They can bestow disaster or fortune upon anyone they choose, as she has unwittingly become the agent of their greatest enemy, the Wizard Dresh.
