In Wind Rider’s Oath, Bahzell became a wind rider—the first hradani wind rider in history. And, even if Bahzell is the War God’s champion, because the wind riders are the elite of the elite among the Sothoii, Bahzell’s ascension is as likely to stir resentment as respect.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Things continue to percolate in this long-awaited addition to David Weber's War Gods series. The Hradini's Bahzell Bahnakson has become a leader of the War Gods which only puts him in more danger as the confrontation with the Dark Gods escalates. A bristling battle series now in mass-market paperback and NOOK Book.

Publishers Weekly
Weber returns to the fantasy realm of Norfressa and his barbarian hero Bahzell Bahnakson (last seen in 2004’s Wind Rider’s Oath) with an intricately plotted (albeit formulaic) story that sees the endearing hradani giant transition into a new stage of his life. The friendship between Bahnakson, a legendary champion of the god of war and Tellian Bowmaster, a powerful Sothoii nobleman, has gone a long way in ending the bitter hatred between the two traditional enemies. In fact, an ambitious canal project connecting the human city of Derm with the hradani city of Hurgrum is almost complete. There are factions, however, that will do anything to destroy this union. With assassins lurking and a campaign against a growing ghoul threat in full swing, Bahzell is faced with an unexpected challenge: marriage! Weber’s impressive realm-building skills are in top form, but fans of his previous Bahzell novels may find the pacing a bit sluggish and the plot twists not exactly unexpected. (July)

    This 4th offering in the series, while a good read... Seems rush

    This 4th offering in the series, while a good read... Seems rushed and the gaping holes in the "Romance" and Canal plots will leave you scratching your head. There's a significant time-skip with hardly any information on what happened during those missing years; its a dizzying departure from the other books in the series which happen shortly after each other. After waiting YEARS for this book to come out, I must confess to a measure of disappointment in the overall quality of this novel. The overall taste and feel of the book is of an author busy with another series and not enough time to properly write for a second one. I'd have rather waited a few more years to see this novel done right than what was published.

    Very hard to put down

    Quite often a writer looses the story after the third book but David Weber never seems to. As usual a great read.

    Good but not Great

    I am a big fan of David Weber's writings, primarily through the honor Harrington series. This does not pretend to be at the same level. I found the title to be mildly related to the actual story and the long gap between the last book and this left me wondering what had happened in the interim. A few pages devoted to that would be helpful.
    In any case, it was a good read for a winter's evening in front of the fire.
