I think I have found another favorite author, H.G. Chambers. The story is tightly written with few distractions and wonderfully created characters. The lead character, Kiva, should be an inspiration to all women. She is proud and humble, a warrior and a loving young woman; she is strong and soft in all the right ways. She is young and might be a little strong-willed but she is worthy of being a Windwalker. She chooses her life path and is able to accomplish her dream with the help of Jonah (Windwalker rider of Zakai) and her family. This was a quick read for me, only about 2 hours or so. If you love strong , beautiful (on the inside and out) then I think most people would enjoy this story. I liked it also because it is a read for any age child or adult.
