THE EARTH GIVES WAY TO THE SEA,

THE SEA BOWS BEFORE THE WIND,

THE WIND FEEDS THE FLAME,

THE FLAME BURNS THE WORLD OF MAN DOWN TO THE EARTH.

The sleepy town of White Halls harbors a dangerous secret. On a picturesque street, two houses down from a lovely little park, in a quaint little home with a wraparound porch, lives a family that seems rather normal. Sure, their twenty-year-old son, Xander, still lives at home, but he’s going to college and dating the leader of the schools top sorority. It’s all very… normal.

However, when a man is miraculously saved from being hit by a bus, Xander’s life turns in to the living embodiment of the tornadoes he can suddenly create with a flick of his wrist. Whether he wants this gift or not, Xander must learn to use his new ‘super power’ quickly if he wants to survive. For his kind is a dying race, and when this sleepy town has a sudden influx of new, blonde, fire wielders, no one is safe, especially Xander. It doesn’t help that one of these blondes happens to be the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. Xander can’t deny the instant connection he feels to her so, when she tries to kill him, it certainly makes things complicated.

 

Wind Warrior starts when college student Xander discovers very mysterious powers which he didn’t know he possesses. He must learn how to use them in order to save himself from other supernatural powers that he didn’t know existed.
I really loved this book from the start, Xander is such a likable character, and the more we know about his powers and other supernatural beings the more hooked I was. I don’t think I’ve read the story that uses four elements in that way so it definitely was a big plus. The story is also full of action and the fighting scenes are very well written, I could picture everything in my head. I want Sean to appear more in the next installments, I liked him from the beginning (Captain America t-shirt!), and besides what’s a superhero without his side-kick?
I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. Well done.
