    Book Review

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Like Feathers of a Wing is a work of fiction in the action and adventure subgenres and serves as the latest installment of the Rising Wind series. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Diane Olsen. The book continues the journey of Gideon and Secora as they seek to shelter those who need it and find a source of water in the deadly heat of the desert. As their quest takes them further and further into inhospitable lands, they come under threat from the beasts of the wild, and the prospect of death looms closer and closer with each step.

This book is a gripping adventure filled with danger and excitement that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, but there’s something more to the work than that. Diane Olsen has created deep and engaging heroes in the forms of Secora and Gideon who are not content to simply survive their adventure; they push forward for a better world and in doing so touch on fascinating subjects involving our relationship with and perception of the natural world. Like Feathers of a Wing grounds itself in the understanding that our world is huge, diverse, and dangerous, and that humans are simply passengers on this planet's journey. The prose is gorgeous, succeeding in making readers feel the dangers of the desert right alongside the spectacle of it as well as the beautiful denizens of the sand who each spring to life off the page as they are encountered through the journey.
