    1. Note I received a copy curtesy of Netgalley and Xist Publishing in exchange for an honest review.Even if it starts a little slow, things soon pick up and it gets quite enjoyable The action takes place on Mars, after an incomplete colonization due to a sabotage The reasons for leaving Earth are not explained, neither are the motives for the sabotage.The society is patriarchal, divided in two casts that kinda hate each other , differently organized Runners a central Convocation presided over by th [...]

    2. I ended up loving this The characters, the romance, the setting All of it Even though the beginning was a bit slow, it picked up in terms of intrigue and plot I really enjoyed Wren s character and her motivations She is noble, yet makes mistakes Raw is a surprisingly emotional character Additionally, the whole society is a very interesting, if not disconcerting, mix The author s note at the end is both illuminating, and speaks exactly to why we need this book full review utopia state of mind rev [...]

    3.

    5. What an incredible, rollercoaster ride of a novel I absolutely loved the feisty heroine, and her adventure across the partly terraformed Martian landscape was breathtaking I was on the edge of my seat until the last page

    6. A little slow at first and them you can t put it down So good Loved the story, loved the idea I m so glad that Bryony decided to rewrite this book and not let it slip away Read it.

    7. I loved the Windrunner s daughter Despite the novel starting a little slow it soon picks up at an astounding pace One thing I instantly loved is that this book is set on Mars, we get some background early on like the characters live on Mars after an incomplete colonization due to a sabotage although the reasons for leaving Earth or the sabotage aren t really explained The society is divided into two casts runners and grounders The runners are male and the grounders female and this plays a huge p [...]

    8. I loved this story Some of it is a bit impossible There are a few instances where I wish the author had given a better explanation or given a thorough build up in order for an event to seem less impossible Truth be told, I wish the whole thing was longer It s such a wonderfully fresh setting that I feel the author isn t getting his bang for his buck with this opportunity More world building would only do wonders There is so much to talk about and go into detail with However, the story that is [...]

    9. When I received the email from YA Bound Tours for this tour, the cover immediately grabbed my eye My only hesitate was being run down on post apocalyptic dystopians with the last several being less than stellar After reading the blurb, I decided to test myself If I still thought about the Windrunner s Daughter days later, I d sign up to review it.Good news, this system worked The Windrunner s Daughter starts with a rapid fire prologue that tells the story of the founding trip to Mars Earth is lo [...]

    10. Netgalley copy in exchange for an honest review.This book took a little time to grow on me, but once I was good, I was good This SF YA novel was incredibly rich in its setting original and creative , its world building incredible and its characters layered and fascinating All of this was carefully packed with dynamic and vibrant dialogues, a poetic style filled with wonderful descriptions that set the tone and scene right away Wren was a great main character, interesting and unsettling but alway [...]

    11. I loved the attention to detail that was afforded to the dynamics of flight for the Runners I was scared of the creatures and still have several ideas in my head about what they are I was so invested in Wren s story, the decisions she would make and their outcomes, that I would have read this story in one sitting, but I had to go to work This is a great book for young and old alike There are realistic consequences to each choice made and there is a love story that is fitting but doesn t take cen [...]

    12. Think Whale Rider meets Dune Windrunner s Daughter offers up a good old fashion girl power story with an unusual twist hand gliding on Mars.Wren is young woman living on a Martian colony, a place whose sandstorms, ultra smart land sharks and lack of oxygen make it just about as rude and oppressive as the tyrant leaders that run it This post Earth society is divided into two major cliques grounders who are like jocks except instead of playing sports they get off on the fact that they manage every [...]

    13. spoiler free you can also read this review on my blog I just really love books that involve girl power, and this one is filled with it Every other page I found myself going, Yaaasss girl, yaaaass So obviously, I gave this one a solid 4 out of 5 stars on I was sent this book courtesy of Bound Book Tours for an honest review, so let s just jump right in The Good StuffWren was definitely a great character as I mentioned above I loved her fierceness and her loyalty for her fam She didn t care what t [...]

    14. Earth is dead and has left the last of the humans stranded on Mars and living in colonies For the most part they are divided between the grounders and the runners The runners think that they are somewhat better than the grounders because they are the only ones who can or are allowed to take messages and supplies from colony to colony and without the runners the grounder would be or have nothing they would all starve or die without food or medication when they are sick The runners fly from colony [...]

    15. E book provided by YA Bound Book Tours This book THIS BOOK I literally devoured it in two sittings and was left wanting even though this is a standalone I think This book is so, so well written and the world building is on point This is everything I wanted in a dystopia sci fi book and .I ll attempt to give a small understanding of what the story is about underneath but I ll most likely not do a very good job at it because this story is not something that can be easily summarized.This book is a [...]

    16. very much enjoyed this book, not my usual kind of thing but had me hooked early and the story had me engrossed with the imagery throughout.

    17. Windrunner s Daughter proves that girl power transcends time and space I m so excited to be part of this book tour because I thoroughly enjoyed this book I had zero expectations when I started reading Windrunner s Daughter which I like because I get a completely unbiased experience The only thing I knew was that it was science fiction which is my absolute favourite genre The StoryA sabotaged attempt at colonization leave the last human beings in the universe stranded on Mars.Braving a half terra [...]

    18. sabotaged colonization attempt leaves the last humans in the universe stranded on Mars Braving a half terraformed atmosphere, terrifying indigenous species, and a colony government that is openly hostile, a young girl named Wren must defy tradition to save her mother and perhaps, every human left.It is forbidden for women to steal the wings that allow a select group of runners to carry messages and goods between colonies It is forbidden to cross the wastes with a sand storm on the horizon and it [...]

    19. Alright where to start well we have colonies on Mars You are sort of thrust into this world of first Sabotage and then it skips 100 years into the future and you see sort of what becomes of all the colonies of Mars which are separated between Grounders and Runners Runners are the only people to travel between colonies at all and there is a very fine balance between the Runners and Grounders and no one can live without the other.The story follows a future Sphere Mistress who is left with the task [...]

    20. I ll confess, this started a little bit slowly for my taste I like to be dragged through a book and deposited, breathless, at the end , but stick with it The speed was a factor of the complexity of the world we re introduced to an entire planet with society similar but not quite the same as our own.And once the action starts oh my The flying sequences were fabulous, real pulse raising stuff And I loved how the characters of Wren and Raw progressed during their tumultuous journey The plotting was [...]

    21. Set on Mars, where sabotage has stopped terraforming when it was only half complete, and communities under their domes can only communicate via Runners Runners fly with wings, taking advantage of the low gravity, picking and choosing which messages are important and charging tithe for the flight Without the Runners, Grounders would not be able to trade or get new medicines, without the Grounders, Runners would starve Tension between Runners and Grounders is running high When Wren bumps into Raw [...]

    22. Great premise, strong execution Started a little slow and I was a big distracted by some typos and grammatical errors Also not a fan of the cover art Kind of feels like a maxi pad ad from the 1970s but once Wren literally took off, the book did too There was quite a bit of plot set up, felt like this book easily earned a sequel.

    23. Take a deep breath and run this story will not let you go until the very end Put me in mind of the pace of Patrick Ness Knife of Never Letting Go When it comes to action adventure, Pearce nails it time and again.

    24. AwesomeI loved this book It started a little slow then built to a wonderful exciting pace A good story line and paced very well after the start A great YA book.
