That’s the word I’d use.

As a young fae raised in a small village, my life had been idyllic. Me, my mom, my step-brother Dom, and his dads, Ashe and Curtis lived together above my mother’s healer’s den, all working together to cure the illnesses affecting the multiple species in our community. We’d lived a modest life, but we’d been happy.

Until one day, a summons

Moon's Tits was this a great read! I've been a fan of Mila's since I picked up her Maven of Mayhem series, so when I saw her next one was branching off into fantasy, I was like, TAKE MY MONEY.

Mila paints the picture of a lush fantasy world with a rich historical background without getting too in the weeds of things. It has amazing world-building for days with a new and exciting take on Fae, Elves, Goblins, Sprites etc. One of my favourite bits is how the world builds in polyamory so well. I'm a

Incredible, that’s how I would describe this book just incredible.

The story is high fantasy with an amazing world you just get lost in. The detail and descriptions had me visualizing everything. I just wanted to jump on and live there.

Elia a healer and her step-brother Dom travel across the kingdom on a quest that could change their lives forever 😍 During the journey from events that happen you can just see how the love these 2 have for each other blossoms further.

“The great curse of being a reader was the lack of sleep one could obtain at night.”

I had the distinct pleasure to receive an ARC copy of this book. With that being said, I’m not here with a flowery fluff piece on how everyone should read this book.. No, I’m here to tell y’all how distraught I am that I cannot binge this whole entire series in one sitting!!!!! 😩😩😩

Epic fantasy and great start to the series

Moon’s tits, if the first line doesn’t have you loving this book already then you will have to believe me when I say that this is an exceptional read. Many fantasy novels tend to be quite long but the world building in this was simple and still complex. There are many layers that have already been established but I know that there will be so many more as the story continues. I feel like we only got a taste of what this author and this world can offer.

The Howling Wind is an absolutely fantastic romance fantasy that is a definite must read for anyone that loves RH fated mate stories that tempt and intrigue! Needless to say, Mila Sin sure knows how to take you on an epic journey with her incredibly detailed and utterly amazing creative world building and her captivating characters! She definitely has the flair for creativity and knows her way with words!

Our FMC Elia, is a high Fae healer that’s full of sass and spunk and utterly endearing! Whe

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have been a fan of Mila Sin ever since I read her debut in the Maven of Mayhem series. And to be honest, I didn’t think she could outdo herself.

She most certainly has. The Howling Wind is a High Fantasy, Slow build, Slow burn Reverse Harem with the most amazing world building I have read from what essentially is still a very new author.

Mila Sin has created a world in which I was so fully immersed that I lost time. Her charac

What an epic, fantasy romance. Mila Sin definitely has a knack for this genre. I found myself thoroughly engrossed in the story of fae healer Elia and her adventure to Heartmount to heal a royal member.

Elia has many layers and I’m still trying to figure her out. She’s feisty and has some unique abilities that will prove interesting later on. I love Dom, Axel, and Hakon. Each has their own personality and so far all are completely adorable even when being a pain at times There is another male fi

I have loved Mila since I read her Maven of Mayhem series, and I knew I was gonna love this one just as much!!

Elia is our FMC and she is very excited to start her healer apprenticeship. She has always had a constant protector in her stepbrother, Dom. Now, they are going on an adventure together, and things certainly get interesting.

Her stepbrother Dom, who shifts into a wolf, is my favorite! Im hoping we get a little stepbrother love in book 2!! There is also something brewing between Elia and P

Everyone knows that Mila Sin is an amazing author, and now she wrote fantasy so this had to
be epic.

This book is incredible.
It had it all: action, adventure, an remarkable world build, multiple pov, mystery, RH ofcourse,
romance and sexy bits.

Like all books this had unfortunately a cliffhanger.

Delicious new series from Mila Sin. Beautiful world with much potential. Elia is an interesting FMC. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see much of her males yet, but that will undoubtedly come. The twist at the end was not unexpected and gives us a good feeling where the story will be going. Hopefully there will be some surprises as well ;) ...more

Just, WOW

If you've read Mila Sin before, this will come as a shock. It's a fantasy slow burn (kinda). But wow, I love being pleasantly surprised and love it even more when authors show us that they are more than a one trick pony, sticking in a single genre.

THW is absolutely amazing. The world building, the characters (including the ones that I would enjoy seeing stabbed, looking at you Dom. I wanted you nut punched from the beginning), the nighttime ritual if you know what I mean, all the intri

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a proper fantasy book. I’m not talking about paranormal books set in our world (or some altered version thereof). I’m talking about a different world entirely, where humans are almost an abstract notion and the fae and other creatures reign. It was Mila Sin’s book, The Howling Wind, that drew me to abandon my usual dark and contemporary romances for something a little different.

The book is the story of Elia, a female fae and soon to be apprentice healer. Aft

Note: This book was gifted to me against an honest review!

TL;DR: I thoroughly enjoyed this book, despite a bit of a slow start. Will definitely be reading the 2nd book as I can't wait to see what happens!
Contains themes of polyamory, fated mates, mild M/F and M/M spice.

Full review:
It was very tough for me to give a star-rating for this book, as the last 40% would be a 5-star hands down. However, it takes a bit of time for the story to get going, and very nearly DNF'd at around 50%. I'm glad I

The highly anticipated debut fantasy novel by Mrs Sin creates such stunningly impressive scenery depictions, I honestly got lost within my own imagination, trying to map out the surroundings - feeling like I was transported to the Kingdom of Brehan on my travels to Heartmount!

Elia is the klutzy and highly relatable main/female character. Her conscience and need to help others is the strongest of her nature, giving her a warm and morally pure vibe that you just can’t help but love (and hope to me

WOW! What a phenomenal way to start a new fantasy series! I was utterly and completely riveted to my seat from beginning to end. The imagery blew me away and completely transported me to this amazing and magical new world. The story is suspenseful, thrilling, entertaining, witty and with twists and turns throughout that kept me turning the pages quickly to see how it all plays out in the end.

Once in a while it happens that I start to follow my progress to see how much book I have left to read; 65%, 58%, 51%, ... Not because I want to be able to start something else, but because I am dreading the moment the end is near. "The howling wind" was that book for me.

Elia is looking forward to the moment she'll be able to start her apprenticeship to become a certified healer. She is ready to embrace adulthood, but it is never easy to leave a place where you have lived almost your entire life

When I started reading, I wasn't sure how the book was going to go. Typically, I read more contemporary books, but I have to say that I was completely hooked about 25% in! I couldn't put the book down and just needed to keep reading to see what was going to happen.

Elia has been protected by her stepbrother, Dom, her entire life but she is not weak. She is stronger than she even realizes until she has no choice but to take care of herself. Elia's character is also quite funny with her cursing lik

This is the first book in The Enchantment Series and was an absolutely incredible read!

When the Fae King sends a summons to every healer across the kingdom after a mysterious illness afflicts the Prince, Elia, a healer in training, decides to heed the call and along with her stepbrother, Dom, they travel across the Kingdom on their quest to reach the castle and try to help.

This is a very very slow burn novel. There’s a lot of world building at the beginning and it feels very slow moving. Best best advice is to keep going. It picks up, and it begins to tell the tale of a Elia, a healer in training who has dreamed about seeing the world, healing fae, and helping others. All others. Elia is sweet; non elitist, and very sheltered. There are several times where you will see how sheltered. Her bestie is Dom, who has feelings for her, but things never quite click for the ...more

This fantasy book is a treat. The detail and world building are spectacular, and Elia and Dom, who we read the most of in this first book, are such a sweet pair. Elia is a clumsy, yet very smart and capable female. Her character grows a lot in this book, learning to "stand on her own two feet". Being a healer comes naturally to her, as she genuinely desires to help people. Dom is the protective, caring, and a little overbearing stepbrother who stays by Elia's side through everything. You can't h ...more

First I will be saying Moon Tits forever now because it is literally the BEST!!! This story seriously kept me on my toes I had a feeling of where we might be headed and then I was thrown for a loop and a bit shocked but I am super thrilled to see what is going to happen next. Elia is amazing! She has a true heart of freaking gold and just wants to help anyone and everyone she can.

Thank you, Mila and Affinity for sending me a copy of your book to read and review.

Howling in the wind is a book of many talents and Mila really has an incredible talent in this area.

The book started slightly slow for me but soon picked up and once it did i was hooked.

Elia is one hell of a strong leading character., who seriously just grows through the entire book. When we first meet her, she is super excited at the prospect of starting her healer apprenticeship. I loved the relationship she ha

Such A Fun Adventurous Start to Series!!


This book was a very pleasant surprise!! It’s been awhile since I’ve read a fantasy paranormal book and this was definitely a wonderful one. Mila did an amazing job writing this.

This is about a Fae named Elia and her Step-Brother who set out on an adventure across the kingdom to try and save a Royal. Elia is a free spirited and witty young woman and an apprentice healer wanting to be more than just her mom’s assistant. Dom is her appointed
So not going to lie, it took me a bit to get into this book. I'm not sure what it was exactly or maybe it was just my frame of mind, nonetheless, once I did get into it I loved it!

Let's see, I don't really have any cons for this book other than maybe the beginning reads a little slow at least for my tastes. I think the book really picks up once they start their journey so if you're like me and struggled, I swear give the book a shot until they start their journey and you won't be disappointed. T

A bit of a slower start, I know i know the whole back story needed to be told, but I was too excited to pay attention to details!!!! I love this author and KNEW she would pull me in to this story and of course it happened! I was so invested by the end I was triple checking the release date of the second book and sending requests to the author for who should be included in the harem!!
It is definitely a 180 from Ms. Sin's other series, but you need to read it regardless because it will keep you up

I’m mixed about this one. There was detailed world building, which I liked. But, there was something off for me. Maybe too slow. Maybe too much detail on mundane things but not enough detail or introspection with the characters and the scenes intended to drive the the plot and character development forward. I was also mixed on Elia - she’s a nice person who is supposed to the be the equivalent of a woman in her early 20s but the beginning of the book she acted like a teen in a lot of ways. She i ...more

What an EPIC fantasy romance full of adventure, fighting, espionage, mystery, and deceit. I can admit when I am wrong... and I was not sure about this book at the beginning but it absolutely blew me away. I normally read more paranormal than fantasy but this totally left me craving more of the fantasy genre. I love Elia and how she starts to gain more confidence and strength as her adventure goes on, I also love how kind and caring she is towards others (sometimes to her own detriment) the scene ...more

I received an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

I love the world in this book. If you are really into fantasy stories and magical creatures this is a great book for you. I found the characters to be really unique and funny. This book pulls you in well. It is a slow burn and does end on a cliffhanger. I am excited to see where this story goes. If you like fantasy RH I recommend sticking with this series to see how it develops. There is MM in the story. I feel the spice and characters
