Great review of Winds from Library Journal
The reviews are coming fast and furious now. I haven't found Library Journal's review on their site (I think it's set to come in this month's genre fantasy reviews, which are all lumped together), but I did find their review on Barnes & Noble's site. A brief excerpt:
Overlaid with the rich feel of Cyrillic culture, Beaulieu's debut introduces a fascinating world of archipelagic realms and shamanic magic worked primarily by women. VERDICT Strong characters and a plot filled with tension and difficult choices make this a good option for fantasy fans.
I mean, really, how can you beat a review that uses the word archipelagic?
