Great premise and really nice writing in the opening. I am intrigued!

As a psychologist familiar with Asian cultures, Japan's included, I was naturally intrigued by the premise of this book. You can see right away how it is written like a manga or anime (something the author states herself), but it is done tastefully in such a way as to capture the audience without jumping into crystal, mech, and whale-sized bongo-boobs territory (which is to say stereotypes). I am also particularly fascinated with her description of hyper-vigilance, which appears to combine the scientific literature of both abused and gifted children with multiple Eastern philosophical practices and beliefs. A novel that should fit in nicely with the strong tradition of super-powered people and the lives they lead. Manga-ka's, get on this now before it becomes the next Deathnote without you!

I really like this idea and I think this book deserves some major attention from people. The protagonist seems like someone you really want to get behind and empathize with. Definitely looking forward to this.

If Darcy Conroy doesn't get on your fantasy radar then your machine is broken. 'Wow!' Doesn't exclaim enough ^_^

Darcy Conroy's writing is like being touched by lightning. She is in the same league as J.K. Rowling. The War of Wind and Moon is new YA mythology as its finest.

Wow. Just . . . wow. Not only is Darcy Conroy's writing on point, the story she's telling is hitting perfectly at every level. Take the time to really enjoy this story. You won't regret it.

I read the first chapter of The War of Wind and Moon and I followed up by listening to the audio version of the chapter. From the opening line to the end of the first chapter, I knew this would be a book I would immediately enjoy. Mia’s voice is strong, her history of abuse is made clear and expected from the very start—from that very start I caught myself rooting for Mia (and wondering why her mother was treating her so horribly). The use of language, description and the pacing of story are all positively pleasant. I love the description of the Gossips, and I enjoy the ease at which I fell into the flow of the story. I am having a great time reading and listening to Darcy Conroy’s skillful prose. Intriguing premise, awesome supernatural creatures, wonderful world-building and an amass of mystery. I can’t wait for more!

You need only read the first few lines of Darcy Conroy's The War of Wind and Moon to become smitten with it. It's exactly what you're looking for: Beautifully written, imaginative, and enveloping. Add it to your bookshelf, you won't be disappointed!

Right from the start we're left asking questions, and the author does not waste words. Within a very short time I had a great picture of the main character and was feeling for her already. And besides the obvious questions about what her supernatural follower, you can't help but be hooked by the sight of a down trodden underdog with hidden potential, about to start her first day at a high school where she is going to be eaten alive.

Another good writer, worth checking this out.
