The Wind Child by Gabriela Houston is a wonderful journey through traditional Slavic folklore. Perfect for fans of Sophie Anderson and The Girl Who Speaks Bear, this story weaves the reality of human grief and desire with magical powers not always understood or controlled.
Mara is the granddaughter of the God of the Winter Winds. With a human father and a cold, distant magical mother, she is stuck between two worlds. When her father dies, she sets off on a journey that defies the gods. Determined to bring him back from the dead, Mara and Torniv, a bear-shifter, risk everything to go somewhere no human has ever gone before.
Themes of family, friendship, loss and self-discovery challenge readers as they follow Mara on her quest. There’s no telling how much she’s willing to risk for her father.
