Wind on Fire is a fantasy trilogy written by William Nicholson. The books are set in a realm similar to ours, but separate. They tell the story of the Hath family and the Manth people, who go on a long, harsh journey from their city-prison to their homeland. The main characters, Kestrel and Bowman Hath, are twins who have certain powers that allow them to save their people, and friends, from an evil power called the Morah
Slaves of the Mastery book. I appreciated that the author has avoided the cliched romance of young adult fiction and instead focused his attentions on the relationships developed between friends and family.
Slaves of the Mastery book. Five years have passed. The characterisation, was good, most of the characters were well rounded and believable. I rather liked Dogface and "his" cat. Mist (the cat) brought some lighthearted humour to the proceedings and the book would have felt his absence greatly.
Slaves of the Mastery (Wind on Fire (Paperback)). The Wind on Fire Trilogy: Firesongno. I think that certain parts of this book could be a little scary for youngsters, because William Nicholson addresses all kinds of social issues (and not pretty social issues, at that), and there a couple battle scenes that are pretty graphic. It is a perfect young adult book, however, and I recommend it above any other young adult fantasy book I have ever read, including Harry Potter, and the Sabriel series (which was one of those series where the first book was REALLY good and the last two kept getting worse).

It was first published in 2001. At the beginning of the book, the city of Aramanth is greatly changed since events in The Wind Singer. The walls have been torn down, and the poorer districts abandoned. No longer is it run by the strict system of exams; in fact, everyone is pleasant and docile.
