About the Book
The Wind Whisperer
At fifteen, Anaii is the most important member of her tribe—and the most mysterious. Ever since Anaii can remember, the spirits of the wind have whispered of fertile hunting grounds and imminent enemy attacks. But when her people are ambushed by a brother clan without any apparent cause, the spirits remain eerily silent.
As the village prepares to retaliate, Anaii is pressured by her best friend, Elan, to marry him. It’s an old plea—Elan has spent a lifetime loving her, but Anaii only sees a childhood playmate out of an imposing warrior. Stifled by Elan’s insistence, Anaii escapes into the forest where she meets Jayttin, the beautiful son of the enemy chief.
Enamored by Jayttin’s carefree spirit and hope for peace, she repeatedly sneaks away to be with him, but when her deception is discovered, Elan is devastated. Pledging his lifelong affection, Elan gives her a passionate kiss, and Anaii begins to see her friend in a new light.
While Anaii is tormented over which man she must choose, the wind whispers of a new threat that could destroy both tribes. Only a union will afford a chance at survival, but the reality of that union is based on one thing—which man Anaii chooses to die.
About the Author
Krista Holle is an award winning author who stepped up her writing after reading Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series. It occurred to Krista that there is an insatiable audience of women and girls who want to read books filled with stories about true love—not just vampires. When Krista is not writing, she loves to collect seashells, watch movies, and eat obscene amounts of pizza. Krista currently resides in Montpelier, Virginia with her husband, four daughters and an eccentric cat with a weird attachment to the family’s socks.
It has been some time since I have read a Young Adult Paranormal romance that has captured my attention as much as The Wind Whisperer did. I always love to read something that I feel is a new, fresh take on the genre. Krista Holle has struck fictional gold by taking us back in time to a pre-colonial America and planting us in the middle of a fierce rivalry between two Native American tribes. Anaii, the adopted daughter of the chief, has an unusual place on the tribal council because of her ability to speak with the wind. Her gift is coupled with an unbridled spirit that leads her into very dangerous territory. She finds herself torn between tribal loyalty, the love of a lifetime, and her own happiness. I couldn’t put this book down until the wee hours of the morning. It is simply that good! Well written, beautiful character development, and a plot that doesn’t stop. It will grab you from the beginning and leave you ready for the sequel!
