I finally got my hands on the Hanna Duology by Cassandra Rose Clarke after years of anticipation! I enjoy Cassandra Rose Clarke’s writing and have read several of her stories. The anticipation for this one was well worth it.
Here’s my Goodreads review of Magic of Wind and Mist:
I have been waiting for this book for four years since I read The Wizard’s Promise. I loved the Assasin’s Curse books by Cassandra Rose Clarke and I couldn’t wait to see how this new duology in the same universe would end.
In Magic of Wind and Mist, Hanna is a fisherman’s apprentice with dreams of becoming a skilled witch and having adventures like the ones her mother had as a pirate. She gets what she asked for when a normal fishing trip turns into something much more dangerous, but it’s nothing like she expected.
I enjoyed the individual tones of each character, but Isolfr is the one that intrigued me four years ago and had me keeping a keen eye out for the duology when it finally released. I especially appreciate how much Isolfr struggled to find and keep his courage in dangerous situations.
If I could change one thing about the story, I’d have it dig even deeper into the relationship between Hanna and Isolfr. They went through a lot and I would have liked to see even more development for them.
I would definitely recommend this book to fantasy readers. It was an easy and entertaining read.
Let’s be friends on Goodreads! I’d love to read the books you love!
