Lord of the Changing Winds: The Griffin Mage, Book 1 | [Rachel Neumeier]

Lord of the Changing Winds: The Griffin Mage, Book 1

Griffins lounged all around them, inscrutable as cats, brazen as summer. They turned their heads to look at Kes out of fierce, inhuman eyes.... Little ever happens in the quiet villages of peaceful Feierabiand. The course of Kes' life seems set: she'll grow up to be an herb-woman and healer for the village of Minas Ford, never quite fitting in but always more or less accepted. And she's content with that path - or she thinks she is. Until the day the griffins come down from the mountains....

Publisher's Summary

Griffins lounged all around them, inscrutable as cats, brazen as summer. They turned their heads to look at Kes out of fierce, inhuman eyes. Their feathers, ruffled by the wind that came down the mountain, looked like they had been poured out of light; their lion haunches like they had been fashioned out of gold. A white griffin, close at hand, looked like it had been made of alabaster and white marble and then lit from within by white fire. Its eyes were the pitiless blue-white of the desert sky.

Little ever happens in the quiet villages of peaceful Feierabiand. The course of Kes' life seems set: she'll grow up to be an herb-woman and healer for the village of Minas Ford, never quite fitting in but always more or less accepted. And she's content with that path - or she thinks she is. Until the day the griffins come down from the mountains, bringing with them the fiery wind of their desert and a desperate need for a healer. But what the griffins need is a healer who is not quite human... or a healer who can be made into something not quite human.

    "Average"

    This an OK book to listen to. A little juvenile in places, but it kept my attention enough to finish. Don't think I will be looking for other books by this author.

    "Drivel..."

    Haven't been able to even finish this. You can tell right away this is just the author pretending they were the main character, wishing all these amazing things could happen to her. The characters have no depth whatsoever and the story has no point. I don't have time to waste listening to someone else's obvious personal fantasy. Maybe some of that was the narrator, with her high pitched wispy voice, but I'm not likely to try this book in paper form just to see. Waste of a credit.
