When I started this reread, I did not consider myself a fan of the Winds trilogy.
The whole point of re-reading is that it is not the same experience as reading. I still feel that this installment of the series has some major problems. But on the whole, this trilogy, especially Winds of Fury, is kind of like a Christmas tree. There’s a side of it you want to turn towards the wall, but it’s covered in shiny things.
