3.5 Stars • “Winds of Time," is a novella and the third installment in the "After Cilmeri" series by Sarah Woodbury. Meg, a time-traveling character, finds herself once again in medieval Wales after a plane crash. This time, she's alone and must navigate the challenges of the past with the knowledge and maturity she gained from her sixteen years spent in the modern world. ⬇️

suvata The story explores Meg's struggle to adapt and survive in a world vastly different from her own, highlighting her resilience and determination. "Winds of Time" serves as a bridge between the events of "Footsteps in Time" and "Prince of Time," offering a deeper look into Meg's personal experiences and challenges during her journey back to the 13th century. 1d

After I loved Clear so much, I picked this up. It starts just as beautiful but then it didn‘t hold my fascination until the end. It‘s still a soft pick with an interesting and beautifully written story.

I now have read all the three books I have packed for my five-days-holiday 🙈 Audiobook on my phone it is for tonight.

JamieArc Looks like a gorgeous holiday location! 1d
BarbaraBB I agree, Clear is better. 1d
Ruthiella Thank goodness for technology! 😊 1d

I didn't get much out of this story. The audio narration was... aloof? She did not really injection much emotion into the performance, so it felt like all the events in the story were happening to her and she was just going with it. Maybe it would have been better reading the text, but I wasn't engaged with the audio.

I‘m obnoxiously picky about the kind of Fantasy I enjoy…but I‘m finding myself in a particular ~mood.~ So, I‘m seeking recommendations! Help me out if you love a challenge!

Some series that‘ve hit the right spot recently-ish are featured. I‘m not big on High Fantasy battles, politics, or character names. Adult fiction preferred (though younger protagonists are okay, and even encouraged!).

shortsarahrose I love a challenge! I‘m going to tag two books, both that I would describe as more about the vibe/atmosphere than plot/character and both novella length. 2d
brittanyreads In a similar vein to Red Sister....you may enjoy this series.. 2d
See All 19 Comments
shortsarahrose Also, both tagged are the start to series 2d
monalyisha @shortsarahrose Oh, I‘m good with lots of character-development…I just don‘t like when the characters have High Fantasy-style names. 😅 2d
brittanyreads And I've not read this yet, but this sounds reminiscent of the Wayward Children's series.. 2d
monalyisha @shortsarahrose A Psalm for the Wild-Built was one of my favorite books of the last few years, so you‘re spot-on about my taste, in general! I think I want something *slightly* darker & edgier at the moment, though. Normally, hope is my JAM. Don‘t know what that says about my current state of mind but…😵‍💫🤷‍♀️ 2d
shortsarahrose Got it! The Gunslinger is definitely darker if you want to go down that route. It does have some solid character development, too, getting into the backstory of the MC Roland. I just emphasize the vibe with it because that‘s the thing that seems to make it or break it for others who‘ve read it. 2d
monalyisha @shortsarahrose I‘ve actually had The Gunslinger recommended to me a few times over the years! I tried a couple of other Fantasy/Westerns that I liked, so it was a natural segue. I tried it on audio and it didn‘t do it for me (I bailed)…but it absolutely could‘ve just been a case of narration! 2d
monalyisha @brittanyreads The Lost Story might have potential! Thanks! 2d
shortsarahrose I started it on audio, but switched to ebook for it, so for me it made a difference. I haven‘t read the next book in the series yet, either, but it‘s on my TBR. 2d
Zuhkeeyah For a more involved fantasy, I highly recommend N.K. Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy 2d
monalyisha Thanks, @Zuhkeeyah! Both have been on my radar. Maybe I should bump the Jemisin back up. I remember considering bringing it home once. I read the first few pages and decided against it. But I know the series is well-loved and the synopsis appeals! I‘ll take a peek again when I‘m at work tomorrow. 2d
monalyisha @TheKidUpstairs Yes! Not for a long time — and I‘ve thought about rereading it because of his new one. But I loved it! I think it was probably 2008? 2009? 2d
CoffeeK8 I‘m going to second Broken Earth and also recommend 2 more. I love a good fantasy (but most of mine are romances). I‘ll suggest Clockwork Boys by Kingfisher & Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews (urban fantasy) 2d
TheKidUpstairs I figured you probably had. Are you a Gaiman fan? Either Ocean at the End of the Lane, or Neverwhere might fit what you're looking for? 1d
monalyisha @TheKidUpstairs Ocean at the End of the Lane is another long-time favorite! Neverwhere I couldn‘t get into. 🙈 1d

…except on a Wednesday since I‘m a day late! 😬

1. My husband is a tech guy and people will tell you we‘ve been married long enough, he‘s become my technology brain. So no, I myself am NOT good with technology but together, WE are excellent! 😂

2. Tagged. The Murderbot series is one of my favorites—I love the stories and the characters but also the technology and the exploration of what makes us human.

@TheSpineView

TheSpineView Love Murderbot! Thanks for playing! 3d

This was surprisingly fun and surprisingly grisly. First in a series but works as a standalone. Has both trans and ace rep. And a mad scientist apprentice who is skilled at body disposal and making hot chocolate. Great book for when you want to read a whole story in one go.

ErikasMindfulShelf Love this series. Great on audio as well 3d
BookmarkTavern This whole series is marvelous! 💕 3d
