Wind Warrior Review

Wind Warrior (World Aflame, #1)Wind Warrior by Jon Messenger

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.


Claire's Review 4 of 5 Stars

When I began this book I really had no idea of what I was starting and had done no research into what it was all about so once I started I was pretty surprised.

All I could think of at the beginning of this book is spiderman! The young man who finds out he has superpowers, and not being a huge fan of superhero stories and movies I was worried about what to expect but the story was well enough written to keep me reading on, and it definitely improved as the story went on and I'm glad I stuck with it even though this is way out of the type of books I normally read.

Xander was a likeable character and it was refreshing to read a book from a male pov. I felt it jumped into his powers very quickly and would liked to have seen more of his normal life as a twenty year old before jumping into his new found life so quickly.

This book however has me intrigued and I will definitely be fitting in the rest of the series to see where they will continue.
