A Fierce Wind
France 1794. Zoé Ariane Donet was in love with love until she met the young commander of the royalist army fighting the revolutionaries tearing apart France. When the dashing young general is killed, she joins the royalist cause, rescuing émigrés fleeing Robespierre’s Reign of Terror.
One man watches over her: Frederick West, the brother of an English earl, who has known Zoé since she was a precocious ten-year-old child. At sixteen, she promised great beauty, the flower of French womanhood about to bloom. Now, four years later, as the Terror seizes France by the throat, Zoé has become a beautiful temptress Freddie vows to protect with his life.
But English spies don’t live long in Revolutionary France.
Uncaged Review: Every single attention is paid to this story, the history that is interwoven into the tale is spot on, and you feel like you are in the story, not just an outsider reading with this author’s novels, and this one is no exception. I had to take a break from reading for a day, just to let everything I read sink in and clear the fog.
This time out, is the story of Zoe Donet, the daughter of Jean – whom I loved in Echo in the Wind and she is as courageous and stubborn as her father, and Frederick is a dashing hero.
You will be swept away by this book, and my recommendation is to grab the full trilogy and be swept into a powerful trilogy that will stay with you long after you’re done reading them. These are books that are going on my to-be-read-again pile, they are just that good. Reviewed by Cyrene
