An Overlooked Masterpiece

The Wind Singer is an amazing children's book that doesn't have to be just for children. It is emotional and unique, not a rehashed story that's already been told. It is a fantasy story, though I think it falls more in the realm of dystopic fiction, without the harsh, futuristicness that is so often encountered in that genre. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever enjoyed YA lit at any point in their lives.

most of the book is excellent

Unfortunately there were significant portions of the story that were too Alice in Wonderland for me. About a quarter of the book. The rest of the book really was excellent, which is why I made it to the end of the story.
The narration was excellent. I would definitely listen to Samuel West again .

Imaginative, unpredictable and absorbing

I must admit I purchased this trilogy simply because Samuel West is a superb reader and his choice of novels hasn't let me down yet. And here's another great story, this time written with young teens in mind but absorbing for adults too. The Audible description doesn't make it sound that interesting but it's a highly imaginative tale of a city/civilisation under attack and of the girl & boy twins (Kestrel and Bowman) who set out to save their city and people. It's an adventure story with a strong mystical undercurrent. What I liked most was that each twist in the tale was unpredictable, particularly when the twins got themselves into Perils-of-Pauline situations.

Each of these books can be read as a stand-alone, but it's definitely worthwhile listening to them all in sequence (The Wind Singer; Slaves of The Mastery; Firesong) to find out what happens to all the different characters. Samuel West, as usual, does a brilliant job with his narration.

Loved the trilogy

I hadnt read these books and came across a recommendation.
I simply adored them - buying Books 2 & 3 before I was half way through book 1 - and listened to them all one after the other.
Samuel West is brilliant - he has a wonderful voice and gave the story a perfect delivery.
Highly, highly recommended!
