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.
While Anaii is tormented over which man she must choose, the wind whispers of a new threat that could destroy both tribes. Only a union will afford a chance at survival, but the reality of that union is based on one thing—which man Anaii chooses to die.

The Wind Whisperer based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Krista Holle has a gift for tension and world-building. I squirmed, immersed in the Scottish culture for The Lure of Shapinsay and The Wind Whisperer is even better. I love the world-building. The story takes place in an Indian community of maybe a century or two ago. I love the sand and grass beneath bare feet, the leadership meetings in smoke-filled hut, the familiarity Anaii has with Elan. Trouble simmers just out of reach. The world feels real... long after the book is finished. (More please, Krista!) Love triangle? By mid-book, I was completely torn. Jayttin is beyond perfect... like Romeo & Juliet perfect. He's from the other tribe, an incredible leader with huge heart. I agreed with Anaii and her attraction to him. The tension builds when Anaii begins to see her long-time friend, Elan, with new perspective. Suddenly, the guy who has always been there... is the best thing that's ever happened to her. I don't know when I have wanted both guys to win so badly!! Anaii is incredible: part spoiled brat, part super-hero and part prisoner. She can speak the language of the wind. I love the way she holds conversations with the wind, sometimes at the same time she's talking with people. The village leaders keep a tight reign on her, having become dependent on her ability. They honor her, but they also want to control her and when they choose a husband for her, all Anaii's pent up frustrations break loose. Anyone who enjoys historical fantasy MUST read this book. Anyone who likes love triangles will find a new standard - and don't spoil it by reading someone's spoiler-y review!!! Argh! The tension Holle creates is exquisite - it must experienced without knowing what Anaii will do!! Anyone who enjoys an action-filled love story should also read this book. Anyone fascinated by the wind? Yep. Read it!!
