Begun with THE WIND SINGER and followed by SLAVES OF THE MASTERY, The Wind on Fire trilogy now follows the twins, Bowman and Kestrel, the Hath family, and the ragtag remnants of the people of Manth as they make their long journey in search of home and safety. As they march, Bowman prepares to sacrifice himself for his people, something he believes is his destiny. Narrator Samuel West's quiet authority gives depth to the twins' deep empathic connection and invests even minor characters with emotional lives. West handles frequent shifts in points of view, moments of magic, and political intrigues in a performance filled with nuance and subtlety. For maximum enjoyment in the fantasy world of Amaranth, listen to the first two installments before FIRESONG. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
