The Rysalian Empire, in their determination to crush their enemies, had unleashed their horror upon themselves instead. But the women of the megaverse and beyond, even unto Terra, paid the price. Plucked from their home worlds and enslaved by the Rysalian warriors, they were bought and sold, bred and discarded or slain at the whim of their captors ... until the Resistance was born of their hate and suffering. The Elite warriors, the Reapers were the demons of every Terran woman's nightmare. And one in particular was a nightmare in his own right, a killer among killers. His name was Kamerone Cree. But the Resistance needed him and it fell to Dr. Brigit Dunne to do the unthinkable, the impossible--she must seduce Captain Kamerone Cree and make him fall in love with her to turn him from the Empire. Rating: Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, and violence.

Filled with suspense, sharply drawn characters, the evils of a corrupt government--set against the backdrop of space travel--Blood Wind is a panoramic novel that is hard to put aside and leaves images locked inside your head long after the novel is finished. This lady has talent! The second of Charlee's books which I have had the pleasure to read, Blood Wind is a tour de force of intrigue, action and steamy romantic heat. Watch out for her, because she is going to go far. -- genrEZONE
From the beginning, this book grabbed me by the throat and refused to let go. The premise is a well-structured variant on "Mars needs women,"...... The soul of this story is Kamerone Cree, raised since infancy to kill at his Empire's command. Due to a convoluted series of internested plots (I can't explain more without giving away vital plot twists), he is forced to undergo behavioral modification therapy -- a polite way of saying psychological torture and subliminal brainwashing -- to make him fall in love with the heroine, Dr. Bridget Dunne. Except he is incapable of the emotion. So they try to build it out of the emotions he is capable of -- lust, anger, jealousy, etc. His redemption comes in brief but powerful moments, such as the unforgettable scene when he forces a terrified Dr. Dunne to admit that she will do anything he says, even let him use her body however he wishes, and when she braces for his attack, he leans forward, kisses her forehead, then leaves the room. The torture scenes are excellently written, and if you can read Anne Bishop's work, you'll have no problem. They're mild by comparison.

This is an incredible bookone whose characters were so vividly drawn that they return to haunt me every now again. I certainly wont forget them any time very soonespecially since I plan to reread this book when the next book in the series comes out. BLOODWIND took my breath away, gave me an adrenaline high, and whipped me through one of the better science-fiction reads of the year, maybe of many yearsone containing a excellent love story as well.... The complexity of BLOODWINDs plot cant be amply explained in a short review, especially since Ms. Boyett-Compos world building, characterization of some rather alien forms, and the agony of the tortured hero all need to be read in their entirety to be fully appreciated. And appreciate it I didfully, completely, and achingly. This is the first book in a series and I would recommend it to anyone who likes SF, romance, or an absolutely engrossing read. Its a great book, and the cover is incredible, a brooding red sky filled with a pair of sorrowing green eyes, and Cree chained in space, alone with the sky and the eyes. -- Patrica White, Millenium Science Fiction and Fantasy
