The Winds Of Khalakovo

by Bradley P Beaulieu

Night Shade Books | August 22, 2013 | Trade Paperback

The Winds Of Khalakovo is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
Among inhospitable and unforgiving seas stands Khalakovo, a mountainous archipelago of seven islands, its prominent eyrie stretching a thousand feet into the sky. Serviced by windships bearing goods and dignitaries, Khalakovo''s eyrie stands at the crossroads of world trade. But all is not well in Khalakovo. Conflict has erupted between the ruling Landed, the indigenous Aramahn, and the fanatical Maharraht, and a wasting disease has grown rampant over the past decade. Now, Khalakovo is to play host to the Nine Dukes, a meeting which will weigh heavily upon Khalakovo''s future.
When an elemental spirit attacks an incoming windship, murdering the Grand Duke and his retinue, Prince Nikandr, heir to the scepter of Khalakovo, is tasked with finding the child prodigy believed to be behind the summoning. However, Nikandr discovers that the boy is an autistic savant who may hold the key to lifting the blight that has been sweeping the islands. Can the Dukes, thirsty for revenge, be held at bay? Can Khalakovo be saved? The elusive answer drifts upon the Winds of Khalakovo...

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great book! A very enjoyable book.Great characters that you come to care about, well developed story and plot. The Muscovite setting and use of flint-lock rifles in a fantasy adventure setting was very refreshing. The story drew me in immediately and kept my interest. It kept me up later than I should on several nights which is rare for me. If you give the book a chance, I don't think you will be disappointed. I am looking forward to book two in the trilogy, The Straits of Galahesh.
