Publisher's Summary

A goddess in the making... or a demon reborn? In the remote mountain village where she was born, Mariarta dil Alicg lives the untroubled life of a peasant girl - until, soon after a mysterious stranger's arrival, she starts to hear voices in the wind. The voices whisper strange secrets in Mariarta's ears, promising her the power to command the stormwind, hinting at an unknown, magical heritage, and prophesying a fate marvelous past all of Mariarta's imaginings.

Then a curse falls on Mariarta's village, shattering the lives of her family and friends. Mariarta must set out across the mountain realm of Raetia in search of a way to break the curse - while also hunting for the truth about the beautiful and terrible being who Mariarta discovers is trying to possess her soul.

Mariarta's search will lead her into hidden domains of sorcery, both dreadful and wondrous, and will finally embroil the young woman in the growing rebellion against her land's cruel Austriac oppressors - but not before Mariarta comes face to face at last with the immortal Lady of the Storms and challenges her to one final battle for control of her life, her soul, and her destiny.

    "This was a suprise!"

    Really did not have much of a clue, where this story would take me until it dawned on me that I actually have spent quite a bit of my adolescence in the region this story plays out in. This was a surprise. So, in that regard, I actually gained another dimension in that story. For all the fantasy lovers, it's worthwhile to listen to from the story's perspective, rooted in deep history of a Raetian Region of Switzerland. Loved it!

    I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.

    "Couldn't finish this, too boring"
    What disappointed you about A Wind from the South?

    I think it may be a nice book for some people that are into slow dramas but It was too slow for me. Maybe it was setting the ground work for future series but it didn't grab me.
