Indie Spotlight #2

Hey guys, it’s been awhile since my first Indie Spotlight post but I’m back with another! But first what is an Indie Spotlight?

This is a platform for me to talk about lesser known authors work and I hope others will do the same! It is one of my 2019 goals to read more indie work as I don’t want to miss something amazing.

I love the feeling of finding a good Indie read but then I feel the heartbreak when no one else has heard of it! It’s like being on an island with no one to talk to, no one understands what you’ve just been through. The feelings, the heartbreak.

Kindle Unlimited Picks

I have finally got my reading groove back! I’ve read a couple books the last two weeks and have fallen in love with reading again. At Christmas I got the deal of 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for £2. The dream for someone who’s 2019 goal is to try more lesser known authors.

I’ve tried a good few Kindle Unlimited books. Some I returned after ten pages or so, others I’ve devoured as soon as I’ve set down to read it. So today I’m recommending 5 books I read and loved from Kindle Unlimited:

Outrun the Wind Review

I love Greek myths and retellings so I was excited to pick Outrun the Wind up!

Title: Outrun the Wind

Author : Elizabeth Tammi

Genre: Fantasy/ Retelling

Age of Protagonist : YA

Diversity: LGBT

Trigger warning: Sexual Assault

Rating: 🔆🔆🔆🔆


The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength, even while her prophetic powers linger. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta.


Outrun the Wind is a well crafted fantasy novel based in Ancient Greece, with two main female characters that are strong in completely different ways.

The Ancient Greece nerd in me fell in love with the setting, the temples are perfect and you would definitely not want to mess with the gods! Elizabeth Tammi’s knowledge of Ancient Greece society and myths clearly shines through out the book.

Kahina and Atalanta’s relationship from hating each other to friends feels so natural, it’s slow paced and the reader can physically feel the hate slowly changing to something different. Both girls although flawed are ultimately likeable, you get to know the girls’ backstory and it is heartbreaking to think about.

Outrun the Wind is set in a time were a woman was married by 14 and didn’t have many choices, the male characters mostly want to control the women and it seems the only choices are get married or join the hunt. The girls fighting against this and supporting each other is inspiring, although they use methods that I would not endorse in real life!

Phelix is the sweetest person and he has a big part in bringing Kahina and Atalanta together, his growth as a caring brother and amazing friend reminds the reader that not all men are bad in Ancient Greece.

Outrun the Wind is the first book in a long time that has made me tear up and it will definitely stay with me for a long time!

I highly recommend Outrun the Wind for anyone who loves mythology and romance mixed.

Tldr: Perfect for those who like their mythology with a bit of Lgbt+ romance.

Lessons learned:

  • You can run from marriage if you run really really fast
  • Sniffing fumes will make you see visions
