“What the Wind Brings” by Matthew Hughes


Out of the fires of Caribbean revolution, shipwrecked onto the jungle shore of Ecuador, a slave, a captive, and a shaman fight inquisition-era Spain for freedom.


What the Wind Brings is a Spartacus story, set in the mysterious, deadly rainforests of 16th Century Ecuador. Against all odds, a reluctant young hero rises to lead fellow escaped slaves and indigenous tribes against the might of the Spanish throne to create a new country. Matthew Hughes’s outstanding tale unites the beauty of The Mission with a stirring clash of swords, suspense, mysticism, and epic battle strategy.
