Compared to the first book, I just wasn’t as blown away with Windwitch as I was with Truthwitch (pun completely intended). While Truthwitch (review here) was given a five-star rating from me the second book only managed to gain a three-star. It wasn’t quite a filler book, but compared to book one and book three (Bloodwitch) there just wasn’t as much action nor as much intensity in Windwitch which I know the author was capable of. It’s still an interesting enough book, it just feels like all the characters are constantly from A to Z in this one and doing it oh so very slowly. It’s a book of journeys and while they are necessary ones for the overall story and the characters (a lot of character building, soul searching and the like happens) it just gets a tad repetitive after the third or fourth time it happens.
