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.
Review by Sara
As far as the main characters, I liked Xander and Sammy both, and over the course of the book, their relationship grows into something more, with Sammy recognizes that she cares about Xander and what happens to him. Out of the characters introduced in The Wind Warrior, I think my favorites would have to be Xander's grandfather and Giovanni, and it was easy to root for them because of what they were facing.
My rating for The Wind Warrior, book 1 in the World Aflame series is 4/5 platypires.
Review by J. Hooligan
There has yet to be a CTP book that I haven't enjoyed, and this book is no exception. Although I already had high expectations for it.
Xander is an awesome character, although I do find his grandfather to be much cooler than he was.
There are some issues in the book, mostly with grammar. I also felt there were parts that went by too quickly, and so they lacked the full emotional connection they could have had with the readers.
I very much enjoyed how the elemental powers worked in this book, and I cannot wait to read more in this series.
