A Shikar story, set in the world of The Horde Wars series. Vetiver Device bears the same burden as generations of Device women, protecting her tiny New England island from the Unnamed. Merrymint is a doorway, and Vetiver the key. The last of her witch bloodline, Vetiver calls to the elements to send help in fortifying the island’s wards. She receives not only aid, but her destiny in warrior form. Boreas of the Shikar heard Vetiver’s plea through layers of world’s. She called to his Wind, and he answered, bringing with him a storm to close the doorway forever. As for Vetiver, Boreas will bind her lush, ripe body to his, fill her with intense carnal pleasure…and one day his essence. Transforming her into a warrior-witch to stand by his side as wife, lover, protector of the entire human race.


Review:  When I started reading Winded I didn’t understand why it had that name. Now I do.

Vetiver is the last of her line. The only company that she has is Ball her familiar. Ball has been with every female as soon as they hit puberty. She knows that evil is coming and knows she can’t handle it alone. So you uses her blood and unknown to her she breaks the bound to the island.

I can’t understand why she would want to save the people on the Island. I could understand about the Island, she wanted to save it because everyone in her family had lived there. The place has become overcrowded with new people and they talk about her all the time. What they don’t understand is that she is keeping them safe from an evil that they could never understand.

She believes that when she calls for help that her Island will be saved. That is not what happens. Boreas knows that Vetiver is his destiny and he will do what he has to to protect her. If that means destroying the Island from the demons that are wanting in then so be it.

I loved seeing two powerful people come together to become one. I felt that I was missing some important information about the Shikars. When I looked and realized that I had started with the fourth book then I understood. I will be going back so that I can become more knowledgeable.

It was a wonderful written book and I liked reading about something new. It kept it interesting because I never knew what was going to happen next. I didn’t know what they were capable of.

I got my answer on why this book was called Winded. If you would like to find out why then take the chance and read about Veriver and Boreas’ story. You’ll be glad you did.
