Raetian Tales 1: A Wind from the South
Jan 15, Marie Kos rated it it was amazing. I was told about this book by one of my best friends, who hooked me with a simple image: I had to read this. I didn't know how badly, though, that I would actually have to read this! It is a breath of fresh air among long-form modern fantasy. The Swiss setting is lovely and chilly. Mariarta, our heroine, is plucky, ravenous, caring, and principled, all at once. This book is godly, queer, and badass. It will stick with me for a long ti I was told about this book by one of my best friends, who hooked me with a simple image: It will stick with me for a long time.
I found the first part to be the best, but the rest of the book is still worth reading. I appreciate it when an author can whisk through multiple plots in one book. The pacing was occasionally slow, but never boring.
Raetian Tales 1: A Wind from the South
I found myself finishing the book much more quickly than expected once I got going. I enjoyed "A Wind from the South" but it felt like it needed some work. In particular, I didn't enjoy the first part of the book nearly as much as the second part when Mariarta finally got away from her village and began her adventures. The whole story of the bull just wasn't engaging.
The second part was excellent though, and more than made up for it. There are a lot of memorably creepy moments, particularly the scene with Duonna Vrene in the mountain of ice. Artemis, when we finally meet her, I enjoyed "A Wind from the South" but it felt like it needed some work.

Artemis, when we finally meet her, has a wicked sense of humor, and clearly has more in mind for Mariarta than Mariarta knows Dec 03, Tria rated it really liked it Shelves: For anyone interested in Switzerland and its history, while deliberately less than precisely accurate on dates, you'll probably enjoy this - especially if you know English and German, whether you know Romansch or not.
There were several places where I said to myself "I know what she's getting at" - and yet it isn't as predictable as that sentence would suggest. Read in December The audiobook is well-read, though it needs improvement 4.
Raetian Tales 1: A Wind From the South
The audiobook is well-read, though it needs improvement in places, and I should add it to GR, but I enjoyed listening to it - and again, it makes me want the next instalment. Sep 09, Leah rated it liked it Shelves: An oddly framed book that signals a conventionally told novel, but turns out to be an episodic set of fairy stories and tasks.
The alpine setting was very interesting and the main character grows on you. The book is slow moving and takes a while to adjust to as the reader discovers that the book is a set of fairytales. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next of the trilogy, which I suspect may be more a conventional story.
