Prince Conar McGregor is only 20 years old, but one reading this book wouldn't think so. He is far more mature than his age. He has responsibilites. He is to be King one day. He has trained to be a soilder, is well educated, and even has a handful of illegitimate children. And he is also hiding a dark secret, a secret that has ruined his childhood and scarred his soul. And with all that against him he was still able to love.
Conar met Liza while on one of his journeys. She basically saved him from death while he was fighting some thieves. One snuck up behind him and that was when Liza intervened. He was astonished to find out the person who saved him was a woman. He was impressed with her warrior skills, and later when she tells him her intent is to love him, he is astonished. He doesn't have high regard for her race. But that quickly changes when they began their journey to his home in Serenia. He begins to see she is differnet from any woman he has ever known. She cares about him not as a prince, or what he can do for her...but as a man. The man he really is inside, the man no one else knows.
But their love does not seem destined to be as Conar is to be married to Princess Anya from a different land. This kills him for he will love no other but Liza. And on top of all that, there is an evil sorcerer named Kaileel Tohre who wants to destroy Conar. Tohre has made it his life mission to make sure Conar feels no happiness.
In this book Conar is made to endure such pain and loss, that my heart went out for him. But that pain was rewarded richly at the end, and was a pleasure to read. I loved this book. There was so much depth and emotion. Liza was such a strong character. She was smart, independent, and a skilled warrior. She was also devoted to Conar, and to her love for him. And Conar was one of the strongest hero's I have read about in a while. He had endured so much physically and emotionally, and still he was able to give and love. I cannot wait to read the rest in this series.
Liza is a courageous and secretive woman who knows how to defend herself. From the moment she saves Prince Conar from an attack, she is intrigued and curious about him. She worms her way into riding with him to his home as well as into his heart. On this journey, she learns more about Prince Conar and slowly falls in love with him, the person, not the title. She is powerful in her own right, and allows Prince Conor to see her power in order to save him. Liza freely gives herself to him, knowing that he belongs to another.
Windkeeper: Wind Legends is a story full of love, romance, adventure and intrigue. Charlotte Boyett-Compo has created a world that I could clearly see in my mind's eye. I suffered and cried with Prince Conor, and I cheered for Liza. When an author can draw me in as Charlotte Boyett-Compo has done, I know that the story is a winner. I devoured every word and sighed with longing when the story ended too soon for me. Charlotte Boyett-Compo leaves you with a great follow up ending, and I can't wait to read her next installment in this series. Windkeeper: Wind Legends is a recommended read for all

A storm sends the couple seeking shelter in the keep of Conar's younger twin brother Galen who detests his sibling for being in the way of his inheriting the throne. Galen has allied with the evil sorcerer High Priest of the Brotherhood of Dominion Kaileel Tohre, who "owned" and abused Conar as a child leaving him unable to love anyone. With Liza assisting the Prince against deadly foes, Conar begins to learn that life truly is leaving behind his living dead existence for her love.
The opening tale of the Windlegends Saga, WINDKEEPER is a terrific romantic fantasy that stars a powerful cast who make Charlotte Boyett-Compo's sword and sorcery world seem authentic. The story line is action-packed from the moment that Liza rescues Conar from thugs and never slows down until the final altercation, which provides a fine finish to this tale and sets up the next book (see WINDSEEKER). The lead duo is somewhat typical of the sub-genre, but no one will care an iota as they go about their adventures with fans rooting for them to succeed as a couple and against the Brotherhood turning WINDKEEPER into a keeper.
