    1. Khamsin of Cirrus Cove was born from tragedy and raised by a local healer When her guardian s life nears the end, she is married and goes to live in town But then the hill raiders come and attack her village taking the life of her husband Khamsin then travels to Noviiya with Rylan, the tinker Khamsin discovers she has a quest to find the Orb of Knowledge.The story is much of a fantasy novel with a romantic element than it is a romance itself Ms Sinclair did a great job of transporting me to ano [...]

    2. An interesting look at the world that relates to An Accidental Goddess Helpful to read this right before AAG, so you can see how the two relate It s fun to see the changes in the same things from one book to another.I kept waiting for some angsty, TSTL moments, but Sinclair never delivered that, which I greatly appreciate I wan t sure how she d write a female who is younger than her usual most of her female protagonists that I remember are usually early 30s, Khamsin was 17 18 for most of the boo [...]

    3. Prequel to a book on my favourites shelf Accidental Goddess , and a shift in genre from space opera to fantasy I enjoyed the the book, although the story and character development were a bit sketchy in places.

    4. This book was a bit hard to get through for me It wasn t until past the halfway point that I finally found it interesting enough to sit and finish it The ending was great, but the slow start made reading it a bit hard.

    5. If you are a fan of author Linnea Sinclair, you might know all about Wintertide A few years ago, as I was reading Ms Sinclair s SciFi romance novels, I became aware of Wintertide, but it was hard to find, so soon, I forgot all about it Luckily for fans of Ms Sinclair, recently Wintertide became very easy to find After a re release in February it found its way to my e reader.Khamsin s story is a wonderful magical tale of adventure and realization The child, Khamsin, was born during a dark magical [...]

    6. Linnea Sinclair is one of my favourite authors She is at the top of the field of SF romance offering rich characters, decent romance and excellent genre plots Wintertide is a little departure from her other books because it is fantasy rather than SF so it took me a little while longer to get into it but the writing is good and the characters are engaging Our heroine Khamsin is a witch who has been claimed by a mysterious Sorcerer at birth and will be claimed by her 18th year She attempts to avoi [...]

    7. maybe 2.5Mary Sue Khamsin runs around the world talking to animals and being loved by everyone except maybe her fellow villagers Also somewhat odd how everyone finds her attractive when she also apparently looks like a 10 year old boy at 18, or 19, or whatever she is It s not terrible, but the blatantly obvious bit of foreshadowing near the start of the book is 100% accurate should this have a spoiler tag if it s that obvious , and when it comes to pass about three quarters of the book in I was [...]

    8. I very much enjoyed An Accidental Goddess and was intrigued to see there was a prequel setting up information about the society in that novel Where Goddess was SF, Wintertide is pure epic fantasy, but quite well done The protagonist is a classic young person on a quest, but it s always a pleasure to see a woman in that role for a change I figured out what was happening with the love interest from the scene with the flower chain, but it was still a satisfying read I especially liked how she wasn [...]

    9. It is a beautifully written book in style, but no in action At no point did I feel dropped in the middle of an ongoing story And yet there is not much pointless babble to introduce and build the world aroune the characters But that os as far as it goes The characters themselves are shallow and don t act naturally the story itself is painfully predictable and the ending kind of anticlimactic.

    10. This is a nice, well written story However, it gains most of its impact as a kind of origin of the belief system seen in An Accidental Goddess On its own, it is a nice story that feels a little slow in the beginning and stays on the cultural and societal surface of things.

    11. An interesting read with a world I d be interested in seeing of but it wasn t her best It was long, i figured out some things way way early and it lacked a climax It just sort of ended in a big conversation, which was really disappointing, but up to that point it was a good read.

    12. I have immensely enjoyed all of Linnea Sinclair s SF romancesso far I have read them one after the other after discovering her , but Wintertide just doesn t feel like it belongs to the same set of books

    13. Read it twice Even better the second time So what if one bit of the plot is obvious Still fun, and a good read.

    14. This is one of the best novels I ve read in a long time I couldn t put it down The characters are great, and the story actually has a premise.
