Forget about groundhogs seeing shadows and foretelling six more weeks of winter. In Ian Woodcock's book, Wind War, the Northlands face a future where every day of the population's lives will be lived in a state of deepest, darkest winter.
Autumn is coming to an end, and it is time for Zephyr, Queen of the West winds, to retreat and re-group, ready for Spring. However, she is tipped off that Eras, Lord of the East winds, plans to stay and not let her return - ever!
She decides to dig in and refuse to let him have his way, and war ensues. As they muster their troops and battle it out, all hell breaks loose. Thunder and lightning, hail - and even more thunder and lightning. The noise is enough to wake the dead!
Boreas, Lord of the Polar winds in the North, is annoyed. His peace has been very much disturbed. He reacts by banishing Zephyr and Eras to Earth as Snowpeople and sort out their differences there.
At the culmination of that battle, it looks like Eras will win out, and winter is on the way, or is it...?
