Windbreak Review



December 15, 2017

Fantasy - Magic - Adventure - Young Adult


Eva has never been one to sit on the sidelines. Yet, her uncles have put her there why she learns the rules of the kingdom. So, when the smelterborn threaten the Eastern borders, Eva itches to get on the battlefield.

Then when the unimaginable happens, Eva knows she cannot standby any longer. Leading her small band of friends and loved ones, she takes them on a journey she hopes will save them all.

The final installment to The Gryphon Riders Trilogy, Derek Alan Siddoway’s Windbreak concludes the magnificent story. Adding emotional aspects to the adventure and battles spun throughout the trilogy, Derek is flawless with the ending. Ensuring no questions remain for his readers, Derek leaves no stone unturned.

True to his ability as an effective story teller, Derek keeps the interest flowing with non-stop action, as well as weaving mystery and enchantment within. Plus, with only a few instances of profanity, some slow-burn romance, as well as little spelling and grammatical errors, a rating of 5 out of 5 stars is given.

As with the other books in the trilogy war is still the main plotline. So please take caution if affected by the following: mangled and bloody bodies, slavery, raids, ambush, murder, assassination, betrayal, foster care, prisoner of war, hand to hand combat, sword and knife fighting, and sacrifice.

An astonishing finish to The Gryphon Riders Trilogy, Windbreak is the heroic finale readers expected and more.

Thank you to #Windbreak, #GryphonRidersTrilogy, and #DerekAlanSiddoway for the opportunity to read this book and give my honest review.
