I knew from the moment I had first heard about this book that it was going to be good. The story follows Xander, an average slacker college student, who in the wake of a near horrible accident, discovers he has the ability to control wind. While it's all cool at first, it quickly heads south and Xander is forced to flee for his life. The wind Caste's time is nearly up and the Fire Caste is getting tired of waiting for their turn.
I did find a few minor errors, none of which impeded my reading speed. The story flows beautifully and remains on track the entire time.
I would absolutely recommend this book to lovers of the paranormal, tales of the end of the world, and/or stories about the supernatural of all ages. I firmly believe every fan of the genre will enjoy this book.
I do recommend that the author have someone do a quick sweep of the book to find a fore mentioned errors though, just to avoid any issues from those would would downplay the book over literally a handful of errors.
All in all, I thought the book was a great. Between the Romeo and Juliet-esque young love, to the detailed fight scenes, that despite my insisting I would only finish the chapter I was on and go to bed, I continued to turn pages and read until the book was finished.I eagerly await when I get my paws on Flame Caller, the next book in the series. For the time being I'll just have to sate my appetite for the series with the freebie novella. I look forward to seeing what else Mr. Messenger plucks out of his head, clearly he has talent that should be recognized by all fans of this genre.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws.
