“Wind Chimes” continues the dystopian theme of “Hushed”. The protagonists, Tre and Muse, are on the run. They have escaped the city and the mindless activity enforced by the Examiners. There are clues to the oppression they are escaping, and there is a flashback to explain how Tre’s parents were taken, which provides a strong image of the way the regime controls the population.
