Where the Wind Sleeps

Rights available

Blaž, a caving trainee, and Irena, an absolute beginner, head into a cave on their own, but the adventure that is supposed to end with a few good selfies soon turns into a struggle for survival. A forester has also gone missing, and rescue teams are already on the lookout …

What do you get when an experienced author who is also an experienced caver selects a cave setting for his new young adult novel? A suspenseful and convincing adventure book! Following his very well-received debut young adult novel, Iskanje Eve (Looking for Eva), Damijan Šinigoj has written a full-fledged adventure book that is mostly set in a cave, an environment that Šinigoj, an expert caver, knows like the back of his hand. As a result, the descriptions, as well as the events related to the search and rescue of the missing persons, are highly convincing. Where the Wind Sleeps is a genuinely suspenseful book with a dynamic composition in which two plotlines intersect – one follows the tracks of a missing employee of the Slovenian Forest Service, while the other tells the story of a boy and girl looking for an adventure, which soon turns dramatic. Where the Wind Sleeps is a novel for teenagers but can also easily lure an adult reader into its depths.
