home and new life Readers will be delighted to reunite with Echohfrost, Hazlewind, Graystone, Dewberry, Redfire and Shysong, and the other pegasi, who call themselves the Storm Herd Her storytelling is magical and flows organically.The setting and world building is enchanting, but full of hidden dangers Alvarez has created a matriarchal culture within the Sandwen seven clans ruled by a monarch queen Storm Herd lands among the Fifth clan The men in the clans are warriors The flying steeds Kihlari are tame and are paired for life with a flyer, but they are trained for the military guard to protect the clans There are huge ants, killer plants, spit dragons and giants who communicate by using sign language.The plot is exhilarating with epic adventures, action, clashes between the wild and tame steeds, the evil Fifth clan queen, the capture of Echofrost and Shysong, and the warring giants There is a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter that will keep readers fully engaged in this fast paced novel.We meet Rahkki, a 12 year old stable groom for his older brother, Brauk, who is a Rider They have suffered a horrific family loss and take care of each other When the wild flying herd glides high above their village, Rahkki is excited and his imagination soars as he wonders what else may live outside his world Rahkki has no hope of ever being a rider, so he spends a lot of time with Echofrost It is the perfect pairing, since both share a loss And their relationship is crucial to the fate of both the realm and of Storm Herd Loyalty, trust and friendship will lead them forward.Alvarez expertly tells her story in the alternating voices of Echofrost and Rahkki, which offers a rich perspective and a lot insight into this compelling story For Echofrost, being paired and ridden by a flyer, is unthinkable For the tame Sandwen Pegasi being wild is an unimaginable They are honored battle warriors and paired for life with a human Alvarez ends the book with a huge

away, where will I go I don t know where my wild herd went, and the jungle contains dangers I ve never faced, including the Giants And what will I do if Shysong refuses to leave The plot was interesting than I expected due to the unique storytelling The thoughts and dialogue were creatively blended between the humans and Pegasi Rather than sharing the different points of view through alternating chapters, the author did it with one narrator It could have been confusing, but the strategy worked Rahkki, the human cub , and Echofrost shared common traits of compassion, bravery, and determination Echofrost displayed a grittiness to help Shysong, but she quickly felt a responsibility to free the Kilhari, the humans trained Pegasi Their ancestors had fled the same homeland centuries before, but most of these Pegasi didn t understand freedom and were reluctant to leave Freedom was scary for them In contrast, Rahkki only wanted the best for Echofrost, and he quickly decided the Pegasus should be released However, he d be punished, maybe killed, if he helped her escape An additional level of conflict was found between the queen and Rahkki and his brother The queen had killed their mother and would be happy if the boys were dead too This subplot continued throughout the book, and a surprise was dropped near the end I wished the first half of the book had moved
