Book Description

Elected as the Songstress, Aria takes her place on the sacred platform to sing before every dawn. As long as she does so, peace and abundant life belong to her people. One morning, amidst a strange wind that brings with it a curse in its eerie howl, Aria loses her ability to make music. But the encroaching death that transpires isn’t her biggest tragedy. It’s that she adores the cause of her blunder, for he’s a magnificent winged creature who’s stolen more than her voice.

3.0 out of 5 stars An inspirational paranormal story June 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Winds Aria is an inspirational paranormal love story. Aria is to get up every morning, pre-dawn and sing to the Sacred Flower. This guarantees her village sunshine and spring forever in their land. Aria does this every day however one day she becomes distracted for just a second but it has a devastating effect. Her village is left with a grey, gloomy day and fear disaster. Il Bora, a magnificent winged creature, finds himself in a difficult position. His master, the Serpent, demands that he blows the despairing winds which catch lost and entrapped souls and wreaks havoc on the land but he is distracted not only by Aria's haunting voice but by her beauty. Since Il Bora decides to help her, his not-too-happy master steals Aria's voice and Il Bora receives retribution. Aria must then set out on a quest to find the Sacred Flower.

They are two different beings that have a lot to overcome and conquer if they are ever to be together. The descriptions in this story are well done. I had a clear picture of where this story took place and of the characters. I liked the story but I would have liked the book to have been a lot longer. Some things for me happened too quickly but having said that this book is a good, quick read. It will take you on a journey through trust, good and evil and a reminder the power of love.
I was given a copy for a review but the opinion is all mine.

4.0 out of 5 stars evocative imagery and clear description May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
With evocative imagery and clear description, author Tessa Stockton takes us to a world where the sun rises in a cloudless sky every day and there is never drought, thanks to the songstress, Aria. But then, one day she stutters in her song and everything changes.

Aria was a simple, sweet girl who didn't seem strong enough to do the tasks eventually given her. She was focused and pure, was never to marry and would live her life to sing to the Sacred One. That she begins to question things makes her an enemy of the state, and that she believes her behavior is the cause of the destruction of her land is a heavy burden of guilt to bear.

The Il Bora is a fallen angel, follower of the serpent and tasked with Aria's destruction. But he, too, begins to question and he, too, doesn't discharge his duty as charged. Instead he gets to know Aria, and he falls in love.

The change from idyllic to dark is rapid and frightening for Aria. Everything she believes and understand changes. I admired her fortitude for stepping up to do what needs to be done, no matter her fear and worry. She is stronger than she appears.

The Il Bora never felt evil, despite his origins (and his master). There was never a question that he'd do what was right which, had he been written differently, might have made the conflict stronger.

Still, Wind's Aria is an eloquently written fantasy that had enough story to have been a much longer work. I think, had there been just a few more pages, it would have better met its potential, as some parts felt a bit rushed.

I did truly admire the author's writing skills, though, and would be most willing to read work by her again.

The novella "Wind's Aria" is an enjoyable read. Poetic descriptions that paint beautiful scenes and are a pleasure to read. I like how the author engages the reader, balancing some deep POV with folktale narration. I appreciate a story that makes me care about the characters and offers an enchanting world. -GP
