4.5 starsEdit 11/07: In my warning, I should have added that there may be a few scenes that would not necessarily be considered as politically correct these days anymore, but nothing that I couldn't put in its historical context. Therefore, I had no qualms. Besides, it's a pre-2k book.****Two days ago, I decided to re-read this book - after a long, long, very long time. Another keeper of my teenage years and my favourite of the Wind Dancer series. Although, up until now I had no idea a 4th book [...]
Very good historical romance set during French Revolution - the time period that fascinates me for many reasons. Thank you, Bubu, for your fantastic review Bubu that prompted me to try this story.
Re-read for review purposes. (Oh, who am I kiddin, I frakkin love this series, and re-read it all the time.)Second in Johansen’s 90’s romance series titled, "Wind Dancer", Storm Winds brings the Wind Dancer statue to revolutionary France. The Andreas family are the original owners of the statue that some say, the possesser of which, is granted a great power. Power which leads every army to victory. Now in the hands of French royalty, Jean Marc Andreas will stop at nothing to get it back for [...]
4.25 stars.Read with caution, the story is too close to the history, there are mass raped, slaughtered, killing spree against women in this book.Less romantic than previous book, but it's feel real with the situation in those French Revolution times, a scary time:( I hated when I read them but I couldn't stop continue till it finished.Ms. Johansen certainly not shy away to write a historical fact for her book.If you loves Julie Garwood books, you probably won't like this book much, no sweet lovi [...]
Why doesn't anyone write historical romance like this anymore?
Rich story with lots of historical backdrop. Didn't work for me because of too many main characters and POVs and too little detail in the relationship between the leads. Can see why it works for others though!
I haven't read many books by Iris Johansen. And I can't remember I have ever read her historical romance. I generally enjoyed this book but I was definitely looking for something different.I definitely didn't like the beginning. The tension between Juliette and Jean Marc for God sake! She was fourteen! Of course I enjoyed Lolita but Storm Winds is a historical romance book, I expect my characters to be mature. And she was acting like she was much older but I think it was too much, it didn't seem [...]
I'm not saying that psychopaths didn't exist in the 19th century - no, indeed - but I find it hard to believe the word was commonly used, and that is just one of many anachronisms in this novel. But when the French revolutionaries began drinking the nuns' blood, I had to say NO to Iris Johansen.
Masterful Sequel to Wind Dancer!This is the second in the Wind Dancer trilogy (WIND DANCER, STORM WINDS, REAP THE WIND). WIND DANCER took place in the 16th century and told us the story of the founding of the Andreas and Vasaro families. It was wonderful and I gave it 5 stars. This sequel is also masterfully done. Johansen weaves a complex tale with many threads and many interesting characters. She does it so well you will be captivated. I don't think there is another romance author who does lov [...]
This is my fav book for all of 2010, so far!!! Oh, it has everythingspense, sensual romance, murders, 2 love stories in one bookat's what I love about IrisTaken in France right before Marie A was beheadedwow, what a book. read it.
I don't know why this author shifted to writing suspense rather than romance and sexy theme. He's really good in it. Try this book A thumbs up
As with any Iris Johansen book I can remember reading, this book is awesome! While I thoroughly enjoy her Eve Duncan Series and all of her current books, it saddens me that she doesn't write more historical romance. She's just so darn good at it! This book, the second in the Wind Dancer saga is set during the French Revolution and at times terrified me. Ms. Johansen's ability to take you places with her writing is astonishing. This is the second or third time I've read the series, but it's been [...]
I enjoyed the thriller aspect of the novel and I was more interested by this treatment of the French revolution than assassin's creed unity but the main romance just grossed me out with his I'm waiting for you to be an acceptable prospect but I've lusted after you since you were 14 and her naivete just and it worse for me. Catherine and François were super cute though.Actually at the beginning i wanted Juilette to ignore the dude and just straight up romance Catherine, they would have been much [...]
An extra ordinary work of art. Beautiful venture into the French Revolution and a tale of love, trust and overcoming. Gorgeous work.
I'm so glad I decided not to skip this one. This saga (for there is no other word for it) was far less disturbing than the first. Oh there was still rape, murder, and torture. And it even touched the main characters, but it wasn't perpetrated by the hero this time and it made all the difference. Things I liked: This story had alot of moving parts and like a true master johansen pulled them all together perfectly with no misunderstandings or gaps. The characters are complex and fascinating. This [...]
I didn’t read the blurb of this book until I finished it and have to say… what is the blurb about? I made it through this book despite hating Jean Marc… I HATED him. Every time I read anything he did said or thought I was like “Erh I hate this guy… GO AWAY” and then there was Phillipe ! urghHowever what kept me going was my love for Juliette and Catherine, I really enjoyed reading how the friendship between the two girls started grew and changed.I didn’t know much about the French [...]
During the 1700sI like this book but there is so much of the French Revolution that I don`t like reading, that I had to skip most of that.There was a madness over the land that had the guillitne working night and day during the whole story,chopping off heads of any noble or anyone suspected of helping them.The hero-Jean Mark Andreas is a relative of Andreas and Sanchia from the 1500s first novel in this series.Juliette-the heroine is the daughter of one of Marie Antonettes ladys in waiting and l [...]
Storm Winds by Iris Johansen written in 1991 is the second in the Wind Dancer series. Overall, this book can be a bit slow paced but is very interesting. If you like Historical Romance novels that are accurate then this is a very good choice. Be warned, though not very graphic, there is rape, torture, and murder in this book.Set in Eighteenth-century France, Juliette De Clement and Jean Marc Andreas are thrown together time and time again both by fate and organized workings. Both on the hunt for [...]
Again, like The Wind Dancer, Storm Winds is historical fiction. Still not my favorite genre to read, but I liked this story better than the 1st in the trilogy. I liked that Jean and Juliette were attracted to each other, but that they fought that attraction.Juliette, much like Sanchia in the fist book, is not the character that you'd think these powerful men would be attracted to, but they are strong. Juliette learned early on that she had to take care of herself, and it created a toughness abou [...]
It can be quite brutal at some point. Rape, toture, violence, incest topics I dislike resding about, thoughit did paint the picture for the terror ofthis revolution. It wasn't glorious. The first half I found rather tedious as the heroine could be so frustrating, never looking inwards at her own flaws. It changes midway, as well as my and the hero's perception of her as an ault and not a child. The suthor slightly manages to keep the power balanced between the hero and heroine although it can so [...]
I really enjoyed this book and had trouble putting it down. Although none of the characters really appealed to me, they were well-rounded and seemed fairly realistic. The relationship between Juliette and Jean Marc was a little bit uncomfortable for me--he kept switching between guardian and lover, and he first was attracted to her when she was just 14. And the fact that he treated their relationship like some protracted game, without ever explaining the game or its rules to Juliette, was not my [...]
I love the entire Wind Dancer series, but this is my favorite of the original trilogy. I have reread this book so many times I've had to get a new copy as the old one fell apart. What a wonderful romance story, all mixed with intrigue and action. All of the original trilogy (and even the later ones) are interwoven, which makes it even more enjoyable. Love, love, love this book!
Storm Winds - PoorJohansen, Iris - 2nd in Wind Dancer seriesSet in eighteenth-century France, this enthralling love story follows a man and a woman whose passion is as splendid as the fabled statue they seek to wrest from the royals.I am just not a fan of book set during the French Revolution.
I should learn not to read the author's note at the end. I remember finding the one for Wind Dancer to be particularly trite and I found the one following Storm Winds to be only a little better.On the whole this book was okay. I think the author captured the violence of the period rather well. I enjoyed most of it and so would give it a 2.5 if possible.
How often do I actually read a book instead of listening to it? Well, this one was well worth sitting down and getting involved. This is less of a mystery and more of a historical romance, though. Interesting tidbits, raises the question of what happened to the last king of France, son of Marie Antoinette? He may have escaped and the line continue even now.
Superb sequel to Wind Dancer. Loved the characterisation of Juliette,Jean Marc,Catherine and Francois. Totally loved the way Ms. Johanssen threaded her story around the French Revolutionde me want to read more about that period in history. A good historical romance.
Solid three stars. Second book of the Wind Dancer series and now we've fast-forwarded to the French Revolution. I liked the characters much more than IIn the first book and the plot was even more compelling.
I couldn't put down the first book of this series, The Wind Dancer. While this book was good, I had a much more complicated time getting into it. Likely this is because I not as interested in the French Revolution period. Still a recommended read for those enjoying historical romance.
This wasn't necessarily a BAD book, but I thought Ill Winds was a lot better. I wasn't terribly invested in any of the characters or their relationships, and it seemed a bit like the author just had one big list of romance tropes that she felt the need to fit in.
