I kind of want to give this book five stars because I love it so much more than I love my other four star books. But I'm not quite convinced it's that good... No choice for it! Must go back and recalibrate all my ratings.

OK, maybe not.

I can't remember now where I picked up The Wind-Witch. I was someplace random, I remember that, and I liked the title, but the book sat on my shelf for a while because it's the second in a series of three and, by the time I got it, I was kind of over series. But I think it stands alone just fine by itself, which is a huge compliment. The writing is nice, the world is well-crafted, the characters are good, the wolves have been romanticized slightly, but it's nowhere near as annoying as when other writers romanticize wolves, the plot moves along, the idea is original, and I can't think why it has taken me 20 years to decide to find and read the other two books. Every time I reread it, I'm surprised again by how good I think it is.
