Review

A storm tossed sea leads the Windlass's crew into a fantastic adventure. If you love tales of intrigue, magic and mystery, I highly recommend this novel. For those already familiar with Charlee Boyett Compo work, you'll enjoy the allusions to her other novels. All readers will find themselves enthralled by this gripping tale. As with many of her works, keep a box of tissues handy, for the ending will leave you shocked, tearful, and amazed by the beauty of the tale. -- Cindy Penn, Wordweaving.com

As with all Ms. Compo's books, WINDCHANCE is riveting. From the opening page to the unexpected and touching ending, this story will completely captivate you. No one does tortured heros better than Charlotte Compo...If you like stories of adventure, dark magic, sword and sorcery then you MUST read this book. Do not hesitate, go directly to Dark Star Publications now and order it. -- Jo Anderson, "A Little Romance"

More About the Author

Charlotte "Charlee" Boyett~Compo began her writing career as an entertainment editor for one of millionaire Warren Buffett's Sun newspapers in Omaha, NE in the early 1970s. Her first novel, The Keeper of the Wind, was released in mass market paperback in 1996. In 1998, BloodWind, NightWind, In the Wind's Eye, Prince of the Wind, WindFall, and WindChance were released a month apart. Since then, she has had over 90 novels published in print and e-book format. There are over eighty of her titles available in Kindle format. She has written for Amber Quill Press, Cerridwen Press, Ellora's Cave, New Concepts Publishing, Phaze Books, Ravenous Romance, and Samhain Publishing. Her website...located at www.windlegends.org...has over 900 reviews of her novels plus synopses and excerpts from her 90+ works. Currently she is working with thirteen other Ellora's Cave authors to produce four seasonal anthologies a year for their publishing group Naughty Literati.

Charlee writes in the speculative fiction genre with a heavy emphasis on dark fantasy, paranormal romance, and SF/futuristic. Her signature Reaper series of novels have a large fan following with BloodWind being one of the most pirated e-books on the web. Vampire/werewolf hybrids, Reapers are tall, dark, and handsome tortured heroes with black hair and amber eyes. You can find her Reapers in the WindVerse, WindWorld, DemonWind, and WesternWind series of novels. The award-winning novels all have the word 'wind' in the title in some form or other as a tribute to her husband, Tom: the wind beneath her wings and the love of her life.

Adopted at birth, she was born in Sarasota, FL but was raised in Colquitt and Albany, GA. Because of this, she proudly labels herself a Sunshine Cracker. Married 43 years to her high school sweetheart, she became a widow on April 18, 2009 when her beloved husband...known affectionately to her fans as Buddha Belly...passed away from lung and brain cancer due to exposure to Agent Orange during his tours of duty in Vietnam in the late 1960s. Their two sons, Pete and Mike as well as Pete's son and daughter, Preston and Victoria, live with her in the Heartland of America. The willing caretaker of seven indoor felines, she spends her free time reading, writing, and cleaning litter pans.

Her favorite authors are John Sandford, JR Ward, Dean Koontz, Christine Feehan, Stuart Woods, Sherrilyn Kenyon, David Wiltse, and Kresley Cole. Her favorite actors are Allan Hawco, Ryan Eggold, Chris Vance, and Michael Trucco. She loves dark fantasy, SF, and dark comedy romance movies and has an extensive selections of DVDs of her favorite TV shows over the years. She collects statues of the Egyptian god Anubis, the Grim Reaper, and has over forty wind chimes on her back porch.

Format: CD-ROM
The world changed irrevocably the day that Captain Weir Saur and his sister Genevieve boarded the derelict ship. Neither they, nor their pirate crew, realised that their find would have such far-reaching consequences.
Searching the deserted vessel, they discovered that it was a prison ship on it's way to Ghurn Colony - home of the Labyrinth - the cruelest penal colony ever devised. Just as they were leaving the cursed ship to its ghosts, they heard thumping from the hold. Perhaps it wasn't deserted after all, either that, or the superstitious First Mate was right and they were about to be eaten by NightWinds.
Searching the hold, they were nearly overcome by the most disgusting stench - gagging, Genevieve Saur (Genny) discovers a hidden door in the bulkhead. When they finally pry it open, they are horrified to find two men crammed into the space beyond.
Their horror soon turns to pity when they find that one of the men is close to death, having been inhumanely abused. Evidence of brutal lashings, malnutrition and exposure were just some of his symptoms.
Nursing the sick man they discover the Serenian Penal Colony Identification Mark tattooed on his wrist - this man had escaped from the Maze, and the prison transport was obviously taking him back to the Labrinth - taking him back to die.
This immediately garned their sympathy, as the Captain's best friend, Patrick Kasella was similarly marked. Both had endured the Tribunal's punishment, and both had escaped. There was no way they would let the foul Dominion's priests lay hands on this man again.
The crewman rescued with the prisoner was in much better shape and was able to tell the Windlass' crew the horrors the sick man had endured.

Syn-Jern Sorn is a wonderful hero. He's been through so much but he's still capable loving Genny Sarn with his whole being. He still has to go back to where he came from to right some wrongs though. I was pulling for Syn the whole book. This was most definitely a page turner!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on May 9, 2005
Format: Paperback
As children siblings Weir and Genevieve Saur watch, the Tribunal steals their family estate leaving them with not even time to mourn the death of their father. Thirsting for revenge, the pair manages to survive; eventually they become pirates plundering the coast of Serenia.

Sailing the Wind Lass, the Saurs and their crew come across a "ghost" ship, a prison vessel with two near dead survivors, a crew member and a prisoner, trapped in the hull. The convict is Syn-Jern Sorn, son of the Duke of Winterstorm, who Weir holds culpable for his father's death. Weir wants Syn-Jern dead while Genny feels he should not be faulted for the sins of the father. She prevails and as he heals, they learn that his step-brother Trace Edward Sorn betrayed him. As the Weirs decide whether to abet Syn-Jern on his quest to devastate the Tribunal, he hides his power that if used could kill many including innocent people even as he and Genny begin to fall in love.

The second novel in the WindTales miniseries trilogy is a strong erotic dark romantic fantasy that can be enjoyed as a stand alone but is enhanced by insider references to other Wind stories especially WINDFALL. The story line is action-packed, yet as expected by Charlotte Boyett-Compo, the key cast members are fully developed and not just the lead couple and her brother; for instance others like the Saurs' piracy partner Patrick embellish the plot as the audience cares for them. A final twist will stun fans as this fabulous author shakes her readers from complacency as few if any authors in continuing series ever do. Encore kudos to a terrific writer.

By Huntress Reviews on July 2, 2002
Format: Paperback
Syn-Jern Sorn is a man that has been through more suffering in his lifetime than any man should ever have to go through. But regardless of this, there is something deep within Syn-Jern that keeps him going, driving him, and not letting him give up, no matter how much he wants to. He has been stripped of his title, shunned by all that knew him, killed in self-defense, framed for a murder he didn't commit, and sent to a place that death would be have been preferable: The Labyrinth. This is a prison from which no man returns in his right mind, if he returns at all.
When the end of Syn-Jern's 10-year sentence at The Labyrinth comes and goes without his release, he knows he's never meant to leave there alive and somehow manages to escape. This leads him on a perilous journey in which he endures even more pain and anguish, almost losing his life on more than one occasion, but he also manages to find joy and happiness. On his quest to reclaim what is rightfully his, he makes a few friends and finds his destiny. But will he live long enough to fulfill this destiny?
***** Outstanding, A definite must read! This book doesn't just draw you into it, it makes you feel like you are there and a part of the events as they unfold. WINDCHANCE is one book that you definitely don't want to miss. *****

A storm tossed sea leads the Windlass's crew into a fantastic adventure. The saucy Geneveve Saur (Genny), her brother Weir, and her brother's pirating partner Patrick Kasella, along with crew, stumble upon a ghost ship. Plundered by pirates and left because she wasn't seaworthy, they explore the dredge, and are amazed to find two men locked behind a hidden bulkhead panel.
The last crewmember of the ill-fated ship has saved the life of a convict, but in their hiding, they have became trapped. The convict is filthy, starved and dying of Labyrinth fever. Having served his ten-year sentence for killing a man, a crime of which he is was innocent, Syn-Jern Sorn had escaped the hell-hole two years after his sentence should have ended. But Syn-Jern is no ordinary prisoner. The son of a Duke, the victim of cruelty and injustice, his incredible spirit continues to display itself throughout the novel.
If you love tales of intrigue, magic and mystery, I highly recommend this novel. For those already familiar with Charlee Boyett-Compo work, you'll enjoy the allusions to her other novels. All readers will find themselves enthralled by this gripping tale. As with many of her works, keep a box of tissues handy, for the ending will leave you shocked, tearful, and amazed by the beauty of the tale.
