Summary: (from author e-mail)
"At fifteen, Anaii is the most important member of her tribe—and the most mysterious. Ever since Anaii can remember, the spirits of the wind have whispered of fertile hunting grounds and imminent enemy attacks. But when her people are ambushed by a brother clan without any apparent cause, the spirits remain eerily silent.
As the village prepares to retaliate, Anaii is pressured by her best friend, Elan, to marry him. It’s an old plea—Elan has spent a lifetime loving her, but Anaii only sees a childhood playmate out of an imposing warrior. Stifled by Elan’s insistence, Anaii escapes into the forest where she meets Jayttin, the beautiful son of the enemy chief.
Enamored by Jayttin’s carefree spirit and hope for peace, she repeatedly sneaks away to be with him, but when her deception is discovered,Elan is devastated. Pledging his lifelong affection, Elan gives her a passionate kiss, and Anaii begins to see her friend in a new light.
I don't know. Doesn't she look a little feisty? Like not a completely innocent protagonist. It does a good job of portraying setting and the main characters. It is also very obvious what the plot will be about which is nice for a cover to do. Be related to the plot, you know? It makes me wonder what kind of character she will be. Someone to sympathize with or someone who loves knowing that the hearts of two men are in the palm of her hand. Verdict? I like it. I like it a lot. Just not sure if I will like Anaii...
