The Wind Reader by Dorothy A. Winsor is a YA Fantasy story of predictions, princes, and magic!
“Stuck in a city far from home, street kid Doniver fakes telling fortunes so he can earn a few coins to feed himself and his friends. Then the divine Powers smile on him when he accidentally delivers a true prediction for the prince.
Concerned about rumors of treason, the prince demands that Doniver use his “magic” to prevent harm from coming to the king, and so Doniver is taken–dragged?–into the castle to be the royal fortune teller.
Now Doniver must decide where the boundaries of honor lie, as he struggles to work convincing magic, fend off whoever is trying to shut him up, and stop an assassin, assuming he can even figure out who the would-be assassin is. All he wants is to survive long enough to go home to the Uplands, but it’s starting to look as if that might be too much to ask.”
If you like YA Fantasy adventures with magic and possible assassins, you may enjoy this one.
Unfortunately for me, I couldn’t really dive into the story. There just didn’t seem to have that click for me to really hone in on what was going on or care too much about the main character.
In the end, I gave this one 2 out of 5 stars. It just was one of those books that I couldn’t get myself invested in.
