5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read with Lovely Artwork Sprinkled Along the Way 20 April 2014
By Lita Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Flute of the Wind Queen by Eisah is a middle grades YA science fiction fantasy story about a young man named Leander and his adventures recovering a stolen royal flute from a foreign land.

During his break-in at a local theatre to find information about the legendary instrument of the Wind Queen, seventeen-year-old Leander teams up with the pragmatic Ellora. The flute disappeared several years ago during their town’s invasion by the Geuranians. Convinced that the Geuranians took the flute as pillage, the two teens concoct a plan to hide Leander in a crate and ship it into the enemy’s territory so he can recover the flute.

One of the best elements of Flute of the Wind Queen was the artwork on the cover and other pictures sprinkled throughout the text. My Kindle Fire turned these full-color gems into a delightful visual element that complimented the story. The clever interactions between Leander and Ellora made for a fun read, and the plot tossed in some unexpected turns that kept me reading to the very end.

The story mixed fantasy troupes, such as two not-so-different races with pointed ears, and science fiction elements like computer touch screens and space station ports. This amalgamation made for a jarring read at the beginning. But the story’s progression brought these diverse threads together in a satisfactory way that pleased this reader.

Flute of the Wind Queen is an entertaining early-YA story relating gentle adventures about two fantasy races that are not so different from the rest of us. I especially enjoyed the beautiful illustrations along the way.
4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and exciting tale 25 May 2013
By L. Parker - Published on Amazon.com

Flute of the Wind Queen is a fantasy adventure for young readers. It was entertaining and well written. The book includes several nice illustrations. Our hero is Leander, a seventeen-year-old boy, living on his own while his father is off at war. Told in the first person, Leander often views life with a mild sense of humor. His floppy, expressive ears were funny and his loving relationship with his father was sweet.
The story starts with a bang as Leander, who admires the heroic treasure hunter Tevias, and decides to make a name for himself by finding the Wind Queen's flute and returning it to her memorial. The queen's flute disappeared around the time Nagdecht was attacked by neighboring Gueran. Leander teams up with Ellora, an aspiring actress and Deckard, a young Gueranian soldier who has been imprisoned for refusing to fight. Ellora does not seem particularly trust worthy and Deckard is Gueranian, a sworn enemy of Nagdecht.
I found it interesting when the young men argue over war propaganda. Leander was uncomfortable to discover that what he had been led to believe might not be the entire truth. That there are two sides to the conflict and neither land is totally right or wrong.
At only 181 pages, I think the book was too thin and could have been pumped up with more background and some of the tension could have been heightened. I wanted to know about the Wind Queen, why she was so important and what made her talent so special. Why would this young man risk his life for her flute? Some parts of the story were vividly told while other aspects were glossed over or left completely unexplained. For example, how Leander escaped from a wooden packing crate was told in minute detail--which I did not mind because it displayed the hero's tenacity and sharp reasoning skills. Later when he was captured by Gueranians, the story jumps straight to a prison cell. I felt like something was missing.
Overall, Flute of the Wind Queen was a good story and I would recommend it to young readers who enjoy fantasy. The ending left the reader ready for the sequel.

Great story, interesting characters that you find yourself cheering for! easy to read, a bit shorter than i am used to but the story flowed very nicely and kept up my interest. I am looking forward to reading the other volumes in this series and would definitely recommend this book to young adult readers and older.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, but good! 7 December 2012
By Erika - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great little book written about an adventure-seeking kid named Leander. He's not the most likeable character at first, and he's prone to making dumb, yet somehow successful decisions in his personal quest to retrieve the Wind Queen's flute - an important relic to his country that had been thought to have been lost. Over the course of the story, however, he and his misadventures make him rather endearing, and before I knew it, he'd become one of my favorites.

In terms of writing style, people who don't like books written in the first person perspective (such as myself) may have a hard time getting into the story at first. However, despite the limited viewpoint, the author does an excellent job making believable characters each with their own little quirks, and also hints at future adventures and a rich, detailed world that will hopefully be revealed more and more with future titles in the series.

Overall, it's very clearly aimed at young adults, but it's not a bad quick read if you're in the mood for something a little more lighthearted and fun.
