Falling in love is never easy, but falling in love with an immortal god while your days on earth are numbered is almost more than a young girl can bear.
Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine has created a stunning new world of flawed gods, unbreakable vows, and ancient omens in this spellbinding story of Kezi, a girl confronted with a terrible destiny. Attempting to thwart her fate, Kezi and her love, Olus -- the god of wind and loneliness -- embark on a series of dangerous and seemingly impossible quests.

Good narration pulls listeners into a somewhat muddled story and creates heartfelt, likable characters. Jenna Lamia does an outstanding job with heroine Kezi, giving her a joyful lilt of loosely contained exuberance that has her dancing while others walk. Oliver Wyman, in the role of handsome Olus, god of the winds, is steadfast and strong. This tale will appeal to fans of classic mythology. The same shortcomings that have mystified us amid Greek and Roman shenanigans show up as a father's willingness to sacrifice his own daughter over a rashly made promise to the gods. But listeners will quickly get beyond that to adventure and romance as Kezi and her would-be savior, Olus, set off on their quest. D.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
