"will stay with you long after you've turned the last page"
If you are looking for a gripping story filled with
emotion, both good and dark, adventure, deep and abiding
love and the depths and heights of the human condition,
then this is the book to read, as are all Charlotte Boyett-
WindChance follows the life of Syn-Jern, an unwanted,
unloved boy who is betrayed as a young man by a women he
thinks loves him. It follows his adventures from his rescue
from a prison ship, his wedding to the love of his life and
his return to claim vengeance as the champion of the
Daughters of the Multitude against the evil Brotherhood of
the Dominion, the very ones who's corruption allowed many
an innocent man to be sent to the prison island called the
Labyrinth for political and individual gain.
Syn-Jern holds powerful abilities that he must learn to
control if he is to help bring about the downfall of the
Dominion as has been foretold by the Daughters of the
Multitude. It is his capacity for love and his willingness
to sacrifice for those he loves that will break your heart.
Through Syn-Jern and his fellow pirates, Charlotte Boyett-
Compos explores the qualities that are inherent in some
people, their tenacity to live, their ability to forgive,
and to love even though none of those same qualities had
been extended to themselves. While the story showcases the
good qualities of humanity is also demonstrates the darker
side. The story does not ignore the ugly side of humanity,
the sadistic, self-serving, ambitious nature that is also
innate, regretfully, in some people.
Charlotte Boyett-Compos' writing will stay with you long
after you've turned the last page. Her insight into the
darker passions and their good counterparts will keep you
thinking and bring you back for more.
