    this is a nice companion novel. it does exactly what its supposed to do - expand the world set up in the first book, briefly revise some old characters, and further build upon that foundation while introducing a new plot and story. the thing that threw me off what how middle grade the entire story and characters feel. its very juvenile and the MC never seems older than a young kid. which wasnt what i was expecting. ‘echo north’ is dark and eerie and very much the opposite of this installment. so this is a nice companion novel. it does exactly what its supposed to do - expand the world set up in the first book, briefly revise some old characters, and further build upon that foundation while introducing a new plot and story. the thing that threw me off what how middle grade the entire story and characters feel. its very juvenile and the MC never seems older than a young kid. which wasnt what i was expecting. ‘echo north’ is dark and eerie and very much the opposite of this installment. so some personal disappointment there that this didnt have the same tone and maturity. but overall, this was fine. i think if you are a hardcore winter fairytale fan, then this book will be one you wont want to miss out on. thanks for the ARC, page street. ↠ 3 stars

Meyer writes her books in three parts, the background, the setup, and then the otherworldly magic finale. This set up works, but I found myself impatient through the first two parts of the book just waiting to get the third part. I was frustrated with Satu through a good part of the book, but the fact that I felt so strongly, even a negative emotion, is a point in the author's favor. Once I got to the third part, I could not put this book down. It was everything I was waiting for an more! The writing, the storytelling is flawlessly beautiful. A masterpiece above all. Absolutely incredible. I lost so much sleep to finish Wind Daughter and my migraine from it is 100% worth it. Zero regrets!

It is preferable to read the first book I enjoyed very much Echo North the first book of this series, inspired by "East of the Sun and West of the Moon". A part of that story was the appearance of the North wind who had helped Echo in her quest. This companion novel follows Satu the daughter of the North wind, and her adventures after the events of the first book. Shy by nature she enjoys her life with her parents, filled with their stories of how her father who used to be immortal fell in love with her mother and the price. But when feral magic begins destroying the very fabric of the universe, Satu will come to the sudden realization that she will need far more than courage to save not only her family but the universe itself. Armed with her parents' stories and followed by the Winter Lord, a past ally of the Wolf Queen, she will soon discover that magic comes at a grave price. There are no words to describe the beauty of this book. Joanna Ruth did it again weaving a magical story filled with emotion, self discovery, and true love. I cried by the end of the book when I realized what had truly happened and what Satu had to go through. This book was one of these reads that even after putting down it stays with you and it was worth every tear I shed.

    Ok, I loved this. I knew the promo materials call it a complicated romance, and compare it to Kylo/Rey or the Darkling/Alina, but wow. This was so much more complicated than I expected, and I loved it for that. And because I just finished this, and am still reeling, we've gotta discuss that ending. Oh my god. Very rarely does a book have me visibly reacting, but this one did. Hands over my mouth, gasping, flinching back from the book - all of it happened. This ending had me scared.

Very rarely does a book have me visibly reacting, but this one did. Hands over my mouth, gasping, flinching back from the book - all of it happened. This ending had me scared. I was so worried this was gonna go the way of its comparisons, and I wasn't going to be able to recover if it did. As for the plot, I'll admit, it was a little iffy. Honestly, this was pretty plotless (in terms of valid subplots). Despite that, I never had the urge to put this down. The side characters, the romance, and Satu herself had me hooked. The barrenness of the plot allowed the characters themselves to shine, so it's lacks ended up being something I appreciated. And finally, I really love the author for the decisions she made. She has no qualms about killing anyone off. She went for it. I'd be sitting here in disbelief as yet another beloved character was murdered. Not something I particularly enjoyed reading, but it really drove the emotional aspects home. I had no idea that Echo North was getting a companion, and im not even sure if it needed one. But here I am, begging for a companion for this one too. I'm not ready to leave this world or the characters, so I hope we return to it yet again. Thanks to Turn the Page Tours for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review!

    Joanna Ruth Meyer's writing is so dreamy and definitely fitting of a fairytale. I enjoyed being back in the same world as Echo North, and Wind Daughter felt very much like a sequel rather than a companion novel.

I will say that I appreciated seeing a sensitive character rep in Satu, but it made her voice feel extremely young. I felt like I was reading a middle grade fantasy rather than YA (Satu seemed much younger than seventeen). And I thought this book was extremely predictable. The romance was also underdeveloped with the main characters being enemies most of the book and insta-love towards the end. It just didn't work for me. Overall, I liked it because it continued on the magic and lore of Echo North and we got to see Echo and Hal living their lives after. I liked the pacing of the book and the magic. But a lot of things fell short for me with the characters and romance. I think this might be my last Joanna Ruth Meyer book. While I like her writing style, her recent books haven't lived up to my expectations.

    I love Meyer's writing style. It reminds me a lot of Charlie N. Holmberg's writing, and she's one of my favorite authors. This book had that beautiful writing style, and was a companion novel/sequel to Echo North which I really enjoyed. In Wind Daughter, we follow Satu North, who does not/cannot be around people, especially big crowds as it makes her panicky and extremely anxious.

But other than her, the characters seemed very one dimensional. They were there to serve very specific roles, and I didn't really connect with any of them. The romance was also lacking for me. There wasn't enough of a build up for their realization of love to be believable. I really wish more time had been spent on them learning about each other and speaking with each other so we could see that relationship evolve. *thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the eARC of this book - all thoughts are my own*

    A companion novel to ECHO NORTH, WIND DAUGHTER is woven together in the same magical world. The writing is as lyrical and intoxicating as old magic. Traditional fantasy storytelling at its finest. Satu North is the daughter of the North Wind and must save the world from unraveling. She feels too much and fears that she is not strong enough for the task. She is both aided and hindered by the Winter Lord; a handsome and mysterious character.

(Along with the smallest of enemies to lovers, you might not be ready for.) Are you ready to hear it? Wind Daughter by Joanna Ruth Meyer is a companion/sequel to Echo North. As we as follow the tale of Satu, the daughter of the mighty North Wind, who exchanged his many powers to be a mortal in love. But without a North Wind the world is imbalanced, and starting to unravel at the seams. To save her family, friends, and the world at large, Satu must travel north and reclaim the power her father gave up. But she isn't the only one looking to claim such powerful magic. As the Winter Lord looms around every corner. I absolutely loved Echo North, and couldn't wait to get my hands on Wind Daughter. Meyer has the power to turn the simplest phrase into the most beautiful lyric, which only makes her stories and world all the more beautiful. Though I wasn't the biggest fan of Satu, I still loved her journey and development and the interesting way we see her interact with familiar characters and some not quite so. Though my favorite was the Winter Lord, for some spoiler-y reasons.

    Ugh, I binged this in a day!! If you are looking for another book focused on lore and fantasy, this is the book for you! There are so many emotions you will experience on this ride just like in Echo North. In Joanna's books, love is of the utmost importance but the romance is usually second to the main character's development.

In Joanna's books, love is of the utmost importance but the romance is usually second to the main character's development. So if you are trying to decide to read, remember there is a lot of self examination and learning on the MC's part. A lot of other reviewers commented that it felt like the maturity of the book was more like a middle grade or younger feel, but I disagree. Satu, to me, represented a lot of us empaths who don't really fit into the world as children and even adults. I could see myself in her especially with how I am and a lot of us are now later into the pandemic. Isolation is a lot on children and adults, on top of already feeling alone and different from everyone else. Her reactions to going to school, visiting a store, meeting strangers is similar to some of us with social anxieties and different developmental disabilities. For some of us, we live our day to day like Satu does. Pacing: Joanna brilliantly paced this so you felt the pain that Satu was feeling through the middle to the end. She is missing who she loves and we, the readers felt that too with the absence of characters. Characters: I really loved how she tied Echo North to Wind Daughter and we got to see Echo and Hal happy. It was also precious how Satu becomes close with Inna. The tie in with Hal had me so shocked!! EEP. The weaving of characters and stories is so beautiful. I lovedddd the Winter Lord. The whole time I was getting Kylo Ren vibes and I was like Satu, if you don't take his hand, I will. Obviously from the pain of TROS in the sequels still hurts me to this day, so I was sobbing around 50-70 pages until the end. (Take heart friends, the ending will leave you feeling way better than TROS). I do wish we got to know the Winter Lord more as I felt a bit more connected to Hal in Echo North. All I can say is I felt like I was in a magical story and connected to all the characters. You feel their warmth and their deep, deep hurts. Thank you NetGalley for the arc!! Thank you Joanna for your lovely prose and heart.

Wind Daughter was a beautifully told story of the love of a daughter and the fight for identity in a world that is spiralling out of your control. After devouring Echo North, I was delighted to get my hands on Wind Daughter and dive into Satu’s story and the world set up in Echo’s novel. Meyer’s writing is beautifully poignant, atmospheric in description and nuanced in emotion. I love writing I can really sink into, ones that have a certain fairytale feel to it that casts a whimsical air to the story, and Meyer always comes through with that exact style of prose. Writing style really makes a story for me, and Wind Daughter was made all the better by Meyer’s gorgeous ability to turn a phrase. The plot was fast paced while still leaving room for character introspection and developments. The reader is running along with Satu as she is trying to harness her father’s magic to stop her unraveling world, all while doing her best to find her sense of self in the middle of the chaos. I loved, loved, loved the romance. It isn’t a huge part of the story until closer to the end, but then it becomes everything. It was similar enough to Echo and Hal to show off the time of romances Meyer likes to write— soft, emotional and angsty— but had a certain enemies to lovers edge I can never resist. Overall, the only part that somewhat drew me out of the story was Satu’s voice. I loved that she was sensitive and anxious, working through her problems in a way that felt very real to me, but at times she came across more middle grade or far younger than her age. I do wish she would have developed a little more in her coping mechanisms over the course of the story, but that’s just personal preference. Overall, I loved Wind Daughter and can’t wait to read whatever Meyer writes next!

    Meyer somehow weaves the beauty of wildflowers and honey bees into a gorgeous story full of heart and friendship and love. It’s just as lovely a tale as Echo North, and it was such a delight to see friendship blossom between Echo and Satu, and it felt like Echo and Satu’s stories came full circle in this book, and written in just the perfect way. In a world as real and beautiful as our own, Meyer will sweep you away with one breath from the Wind Daughter.

    WIND DAUGHTER delivers all the poetry and emotion we’ve come to expect from a Joanna Ruth Meyer book. In this one we get to revisit our beloved Echo and Hal as we journey with Satu North to gather her magic and bind up the unraveling world. WIND DAUGHTER is richly imagined, romantic, and pairs perfectly with a cup of tea and a cozy fire.

    Wind Daughter was a beautiful tale of personal growth told through the lens of a girl who has to save the world. It was a great blend of fantasy elements mixed in with real human emotions and relationships. This would be a great YA read, and I will be recommending it to my students (and adults too!).

Great Setting When the publisher says the book is “A hauntingly beautiful fairy tale about love and loss,” they aren’t wrong. It was an extraordinary tale following Satu, and it is a story about how anyone can be a hero. However, what makes the story so memorable is the world. I have not read Echo North, but I am familiar with Meyer’s storytelling, having read Into the Heartless Wood and Beyond the Shadowed Earth. There is this beautiful tone Meyer takes when it comes to her storytelling that makes you want to read. Her stories are comfy; they make you want to curl up with a cup of hot tea or coffee and sit and read. There is warmth in Meyer’s storytelling, even with the world unraveling and a Winter Lord chasing after Satu. Al the layers of her storytelling submerge the reader. There were times when the tone and narrative made me feel as though I were listening to a story around a campfire. That is what I mean by cozy. Wind Daughter moves at an incredible pace that speeds up at just the right moments without losing the overall momentum of the story. And while Wind Daughter is a companion novel to Echo North, in case you’re wondering, you will not be lost in the storytelling. Meyer highlights the essential part of Echo North so well, incorporating bits and pieces here and there to capture the world in perfect detail, adding to the story of Wind Daughter. Characterization Wind Daughter follows Satu, who lives on the mountain with her family. What makes Satu such a great character is that she suffers from social anxiety. She hates large crowds, is not a fan of enclosed spaces, and just the thought of going to school or working in the town terrifies her. It is terrific to see social anxiety and anxiety in general normalized wonderfully. While the town may think her odd, her family loves her and, more importantly, respects her. That was one of the most beautiful things about the novel. And when the unraveling happens, they give her their love so that she has the strength to recapture her father’s magic to save the world. Satu goes on such an extraordinary journey here that gives her the strength to accept herself and also know that her anxieties do not have to limit her. She is the wind; Satu is powerful, has always been powerful. She was just unable to see it until the end. Final Thoughts Wind Daughter is a magical fairy tale. It has a haunting breath, but it gives off this warmth. This novel is like a warm blanket draped around you on a winter night. It does not lack tension, pacing, or storytelling, capturing Satu’s adventure and growth with excellence.
