Daughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonald is very different from his previous series. Raine can see the dead and is currently living in a cult led by a group of fake witches. The cult members are under siege by a large force of warriors who think they are real witches. Raine rescues a bleeding woman from dying in the snow and takes her home. Things escalate from there. A lot of things happen in this novel that is the first book in the The Redwinter Chronicles. Where the first book ends is a far different place than how things began thanks to a number of twists.
The main character is bisexual for people who care about that sort of thing. There is plenty of action, a lot of slice of life stuff, some humor, and some cussing. There is quite a lot of blood and death as one would expect from a dark fantasy read. I am intrigued where it will go in book two.
One is warned that if the reader is expecting this read to be as grim like his previous series, a reader will be very surprised. It was so different that I was a little shocked that the same writer wrote both.
My reading copy came from the Central or Downtown Branch of the Dallas Public Library System.
