Black Wolf, a Chumash warrior, was once a captive of the Spanish priests and knows the newly arrived garrison is here to hunt him down.
With the garrison comes Lucita, the new colonel's beautiful daughter. The more Lucita observes how the padres abuse the Chumash, the more disgusted she becomes. When Black Wolf approaches her one dark night, Lucita sees an opportunity to make a difference. Black Wolf sees a compassionate white woman.
The effort to save Black Wolf's people will cost them both dearly, though not as much as the love blooming between them.
"Readers will be immediately drawn into this stirring novel. A powerful, exciting read." ~Romantic Times.

One of my favorite things about reading is learning new things. I especially like being entertained while I do. Wind Warrior (The Soul Survivors Series, Book 3) was a look into the history of California during the attempts of Spain and the Catholic church to convert the "savage" Chumash Indians to Christianity. Woven into the story was the undeniable attraction between the young Lucita and Chumash warrior Black Wolf. I was very impressed with the way Vella Munn wrote about the every day struggles of the time period, the views men had of women, particularly having no say in their lives and being considered property, and the struggles of the Indians to live as they wished before the invasion of the white man. I wasn't sure I would like the book when I first started it; I seemed to have a hard time getting into it. (This happens often, especially when I switch between genres.) However,the more I read, the more I liked it. In fact, I had to force myself to put the book down at 3 am, because I couldn't keep my eyes open! Overall, I thought the story was very good, and really liked Vella Munn's writing style. Don't think this will be my last book by this author. Oh, I also liked the lesson that just because your beliefs are not the same as others, that does not mean they are wrong! *I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.
