Similar to a 30s noir detective story, but with sorcery, swords and magic.

This was an enjoyable story of a strong woman who learned how to acknowledge her path and become stronger. The first strength is mainly physical agility, willfulness and a natural attractiveness. The second strength is being able to sense what is right for herself, and then pursue that.
The new culture Bledsoe invented is intriguing, easily assumed to be Native American (it's not), and includes traits we can internalize, e.g. making music together as community building, songs as a source of inner strength.
Maybe more foul language & loose sex than I usually select in a book, but it's nothing I haven't heard before.

I liked this better than the previous one, maybe because of more "real world" juxtaposition. Great characters, too.

Alas.. I still love the premise of these stories, but I found this one unnecessarily violent, awash in not very believable machismo, and at times, it all felt contrived. Especially some of the sexual glamour.

The constant physical violence the protagonist endured tested my own endurance, both of us slogging through endless descriptions of pain, suffering, etc. Very annoying.

And I felt that the mysterious back story of who these people are, the magic of the songs and wind, why they are at odds with one another, etc. was increasingly convoluted.

I wanted SO much to like this as much as "The Hum and the Shiver," but I was, in the end, disappointed. Waiting for the next one in hopes of best 2 out of three.
