Outrun the Wind begin on the premise of a hunt; it is fast paced, intense and is positively exciting. However, it shortly looses this momentum following the first couple of chapters and falls into a sluggish narrative, largely driven by prose and the woes of palace life. After a promising opening scene what follows is a slow paced, unimaginative fantasy novel that is quite frankly boring.

Outrun the Wind is set in a fantasy world inspired by Greek mythology. Told in dual perspective we follow Kahina and Atalanta – a huntress of the goddess Artemis and a lost princess respectively.  Kahina is trying to earn back Artemis’ favour by attempting to complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia. It’s here that her fate collides with Atalanta, who is running away from a disastrous quest.

But when the men responsible for the girls’ dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly.
