5.0 out of 5 starsTrilogy anyone?
Reviewed in the United States on October 26, 2019
I loved this trilogy. It is interesting to look at society through the lens of science fiction.
My ten year old had just started to read book one, and he is already half way through. He said it is really interesting. We got him book two and three also. So he can't wait to read all of them. He also said that it is weired so far, but nice and keeps him want to know more.

Loved it. I fell in love with the first book in the series, but, to be honest, I was not so hot about the second. Not that it was bad, I just did not feel connected to those quirky characters (Bo, Kes, Ira, Pinpin, Mumpo etc.) in the same way. The last book reconnected me. I was angry at the author when I read it, because he made me care. That is normally a sign of a really good book, when I am so connected to the characters that I feel for them, and I can see their fundamental humanity. I see them as people in other words. The very best of fantasy does that, and Mr. Nicholson did it magnificently. Great, great book.
2.0 out of 5 starsI don't know how I ended up with it, but

The copy of this book that I received was an "advanced" copy for presumably an editor to look over before the final edition of the book was released. It had entire chapters missing and was extremely laden down with typos. I know if I order it a second time, I'll get the actual commercial release of the book that I was supposed to get anyway, but I don't see why I would spend the money again with the chance of getting another unfinished product.

When my teacher told me that we would be reading The Wind Singer I thought it would be a lame class book. I underestimated how completely incredible it would be. Coming from a sensitive child , this series was ultimately not scary. There are some sad and cruel scenes , so I would say that the books are more for ages 10 and over. The series is so gripping and all at once it captivates you ; and you feel like your with Bo ,Kess and Mumpo. I won't spoil the story ; but i can tell you this , The story of 'The three friends' will litterally tug you away from this world and into another. I am so grateful for these authors , thank you. I would also recommend this Trilogy for a family read. Please either enjoy these books as you start downloading them ,or remember them for further reference in times to come. Whatever you choose , I think you will love them when / if you read The Wind on Fire Trilogy. Written by a 10 year old girl Enjoy!! ( This is on my fathers account)
5.0 out of 5 starsWilliam Nicholson is an unsung hero of children's stories

The reason I originally red this series of books was because children themselves had recommended it. Unfortunately the books came out at the same time as " some other rather well known and hyped books about a certain young wizard. The storyline and writing of William Nicholson Windsinger series is far, far superior and original that " those " .

I was given the first book ( The Wind Singer ) and enjoyed it enough to want to find out what happened to the characters to get the final two books on Kindle (Slaves of the Mastery and Firesong). Firesong finishes up the story nicely. The trilogy is called The Wind On Fire Trilogy by William Nicholson.
