The Howling Wind
by Mila Sin
That’s the word I’d use.
As a young fae raised in a small village, my life had been idyllic. Me, my mom, my step-brother Dom, and his dads, Ashe and Curtis lived together above my mother’s healer’s den, all working together to cure the illnesses affecting the multiple species in our community. We’d lived a modest life, but we’d been happy.
Until one day, a summons arrived from Ravenshield Castle, calling healers of the realm to the castle. An illness was plaguing the royal family, and they offered a significant reward just for showing up. For a family of healers, the opportunity for money and prestige was too good to pass up.
So why did Mom lie about the scroll? Why did she hide the truth of its contents? And why had she never spoken about her past?
The pull of the adventure was too strong, so Dom and I concocted a plan to send us across the continent, headed east to Heartmount and the castle atop its hill.
But life on the road was an adventure for a female that grew up as cloistered as I did. And at Ravenshield Castle? Well, that’s when things got really interesting.

Please check the content warnings at the start of the book.
I have been a fan of Mila Sin ever since I read her debut in the Maven of Mayhem series. And to be honest, I didn’t think she could outdo herself.
She most certainly has. The Howling Wind is a High Fantasy, Slow build, Slow burn Reverse Harem with the most amazing world building I have read from what essentially is still a very new author.
Mila Sin has created a world in which I was so fully immersed that I lost time. Her characters are so fully fleshed and easy to love (or hate) that I became invested in them within minutes of meeting them.
Elia is an incredible character. I loved her from the moment I met her, up to the very end of the book. And with each chapter I grew to appreciate and love her more. She showed great character growth, and what started out as a lovely leading lady ended up as a very promising badass that was learning to stand up for herself. I can only imagine where Mila will go with this character and I for one, cannot wait to experience it.
I’m not going to get into the leading men yet, because not a lot is given away in the book, but from what I have read (and guessed) so far things are only going up. The guys I have met I have really connected with and I am very eager to get to know them better in the next book.
And if great world building, excellently written characters and a bad ass FMC isn’t enough for you? Ms Sin also gives you a mystery, a very intriguing story line and all sorts of fun side characters.
I cannot wait to see where this series goes.
