📚 REVIEW | Listen To The Wind – Susanne Dunlap

Susanne Dunlap brings to life 13th Century France masterfully in this tale. Although I do not know much about the era, this book brought back memories as reading Kate Mosse’s Labyrinth – a book I completely adore. I have much the same feelings for Listen to the Wind.

Our two central characters, Azemar and Azalaïs, are separated as children after they are hunted through the forest they live in together. We follow their stories as they wend their way through life, struggling to find each other, with the promise of meeting again in Béziers.

It appears France is a treacherous place to be in the 13th Century – heretics are being sought out and burned, and there is much fighting around Tolosa (Toulouse) where this story is set. This culminates into tension for the narrative, and the feeling of imminent peril around every corner for our hero and heroine.

The ending leaves us with a bit of a cliff-hanger, and a swath of unanswered questions. To say I am eagerly awaiting the next book, The Spirit of Fire, is an understatement. A strong start to the series, and I highly recommend!

Thank you to Susanne Dunlap, BooksGoSocial, and NetGalley for the free copy to review.

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
