Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! In the same way that Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series tackles adult themes within a children's setting, so does William Nicholson's Wind Singer trilogy. Absolutely wonderfully written, extremely engaging, and provocative. Highly recommended!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Read Honestly I think I read this as a child without even reading the first novel. Or perhaps this book stood out to me even more than the first!Ii remember enjoying this book quite a lot. I cannot speak for the ebook, but this novel is great! #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Continuation Good continuation that's just as interesting as the first book. Summary from Goodreads - "'Slaves of the Mastery' picks up the story of siblings Kestrel and Bowman five years on from the closing chapter of 'The Wind Singer'. The city of Aramanth has become a kinder place, but in becoming kinder it has also become weaker, making it the perfect target for the ruthless soldiers of the Mastery. After a swift and brutal battle that leaves the city burned and the Manth people destined for slavery, Kestrel finds herself alone, angry and bitterly sworn to wreak her own revenge. But first she must find her beloved brother Bowman, and he in turn must find a way of understanding the secrets of the mysterious Singer people. Only then can the pair begin to strike out against the Mastery and begin a voyage that will bring the Manth people back to their former stature."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slaves of the Mastery William Nicholson 's 2nd book in his Triology "The Wind on Fire' is as emotively evocative and enthralling as his first (The Wind Singer). It captivates you and draws you in to his world. I had to force myself to stop reading at 3am, but then dreamt about it the rest of the night! I am so eager to read the final book!
