Publisher's Summary

Love and tragedy are not strange bedfellows among the Tufa. Young Kera Rogers disappears while hiking in the woods by Needsville. When her half-eaten remains are discovered, the blame falls upon a herd of wild hogs, a serious threat in this rural community. In response, the county's best trackers, including game warden Jack Cates and ex-military Tufa Bronwyn Chess, are assembled to hunt them down.

Kara's boyfriend Duncan Gowen mourns her death, until he finds evidence she cheated on him with his best friend, Adam Procure. Seeking revenge, Duncan entices Adam to participate in their own boar hunt. Later, Bronwyn and Jack stumble across a devastated Duncan, who claims a giant boar impaled Adam and dragged him off. As this second death rocks the town, people begin to wonder who is really responsible.

Determined hunters pursue the ravenous horde through the Appalachians as other Tufa seek their own answers. Between literal beasts in the woods and figurative wolves in sheep's clothing, what truths will arise come spring?

Hear the Nightwinds...

This is another powerful addition to the Tufa saga...  I love the way Alex weaves his story together, combining music, magic, locale, and fae, with love and tragedy... Mandalay, still trying to fill the shoes that she was born into, has her work cut out for her in trying to resolve the conflict and fear created by the deaths of two of Cloud County's residents...
Will the nightwinds accept the song played on the one, perfect instrument?  You're gonna need to read the book to find out! 
This work is reminiscent of Charles de Lint's stories, but also of Alex's own delightful little series of the Firefly Witch stories...
Some of the new creatures introduced in this story even made me think about Princess Mononoke... There's  an injured/possessed pig, and a Forest King... Amazing Stuff!   Now, I must needs wait for the next book ( Sad-face)...

Great addition to one of my favourite series

This is a series that I go back and listen to once a year.

Bonus points for sneaking in a Buckaroo Banzai comment.

Bronwyn back, more Mandalay at last

If you could sum up Gather Her Round in three words, what would they be?

Strong entry in Tufa series

Any additional comments?

It was good to have a story where Bronwyn played a larger role again, and I was happy to see more Mandalay present.
