"Wonderful story of love, prejudice and voodoo!"
When Glyn Kullen was forced to put his horse down, he was
not a happy camper. Now he knows he'll have to carry what
he needs and catch a stage to the nearest town and procure
another horse before he can continue on his journey. So
when the stage finally appears, Glyn is not in the best of
moods. Swearing as he gets into the coach, he's surprised
when a young voice informs him cussing is not nice. Shocked
a child is even speaking to him since it's not the normal
reaction people have to Reapers, he looks and notices a
small girl of color with her mother. Turns out the mother
lost her husband to a Rogue and a Reaper destroyed it.
Completely entranced by the child, Valda, and just as
entranced by Valda's mother, Glyn decides to get away from
them as soon as possible since he doesn't want or need a
When the stage stops for the night, Glyn sees just what
Mystery and Valda have to live with in terms of prejudice
against people of color. Angry, he demands equal treatment
for Mystery and Valda. When he finds himself wanting to get
to know both mother and child much, much better, Glyn
arranges for a horse and leaves early the next morning. So
he is quite surprised when he is sent to Kiel's territory,
along with fellow Reaper Kasid. As the two of them travel,
Glyn becomes sick. When he is able to travel again, he
realizes he no longer has the ability to speak
telepathically with the other Reapers or Shadowlords. Of
course, Glyn has not been the only Reaper affected by this
sickness or who has lost the ability to speak
telepathically. For some reason, Kasid has not been struck,
which is a good thing because he is the only one among the
three Reapers able to communicate with the Shadowlords.
Who or what is behind this latest threat to Terra? Who
could have the ability to cause such an illness among the
Reapers? Will there be a chance of a relationship between
Mystery and Glyn? And what of Valda? Will she escape the
WESTERN WIND SERIES BOOK 6: MY REAPER'S DAUGHTER delves
into the dark side of voodoo. Charlotte Boyett-Compo adds a
couple of surprising twists in this newest installment in
the WESTERN WIND SERIES with the addition of voodoo. This
was something I was definitely not expecting in this
series. Not to mention how Glyn becomes involved with
a "woman of color". And the way we get to keep up with the
rest of the Reapers and their ladies is just an added
bonus. This time, we learn just a bit more about the head
Shadowlord as well. Not enough to satisfy my curosity, but
enough to really make me wonder. As always, this is a story
of a love meant to be and the many obstacles the couple
must overcome to be together. And I for one, cannot wait to
see how this series finally ends.
