Editorial Reviews


"Yet another book to catch, "Wind Warrior" is a fascinating take on Armageddon, coming of age, self-discovery and a budding love story. And all of these elements are captured in a tale that will surely captivate young adults everywhere. Readers will surely be glued to the book until the last page, what with its non-stop sequence packed with a lot of action, topped off with a modern Romeo and Juliet romance in the background. Jon Messenger writes in a voice that youngsters will easily relate to, as the characters involved are the kind we can definitely root for, while they engage in battles and inner struggles. It is a light read, yet filled to the brim with excitement. This is a book that entertains as well as imparts a lesson or two. I highly recommend it to all readers, young and old alike." - Readers' Favorite

Xander Sirocco appears to be your average college student. Not sure what he wants to do with his life, afraid to commit to a relationship, and still living with his parents. Right until he discovers he has the elemental ability to control the wind and a birthright to protect and guide others.

Wind Warrior is well-written and enjoyable. The primary characters are all developed and unique. The themes of the book go beyond good versus evil and slide into creation versus destruction. The romance has all the tragic earmarks of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - with elementals.

My only complaint about the book is that it was too short. Parts of the second act seemed rushed and the ending was a little abrupt. However, Jon Messenger has created a very interesting mythology and I, for one, cannot wait for the follow on stories. 4 out of 5 tornadoes for me.

Jon Messenger
Wind Warrior (World Aflame)

As I had read the novella, I jumped to chapter 6 and soon found myself happily back in Xander's story. Over all, the story is a great entertaining read but I felt it could go into more detail at times and I would have loved more information about the past and Xander's family. This book could easily have been twice as long and still covered the same timeline. It's well written and there is so much more to come from this series, I can't wait to see where it is all going to lead.

I received an e-copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Let me begin by saying that Jon Messenger did a really great job with this book. It was not your typical good versus evil type, though this theme was definitely a large one. Instead, the reader finds themselves in a world in which the elements serve a much greater purpose than we suppose.

Xander believes himself to be an ordinary college student, and when he meets what could be the love of his life, he is forced to realize things about himself which propels him to become an independent young man. He is now in charge of his future. Relationships are tested and Xander will have to make some difficult choices along the way.

His journey is truly one you would enjoy and definitely should be a part of. Jon Messenger brings the world of elemental warriors to life in a complex and amazing way! Add to your TBR pile today!!

I found Jon Messenger's take on the elemental powers intriguing. 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. So Xander, our main character, discovers he is the last of the wind warriors. Apparently the flame wielders are tired of waiting around for their turn in the cycle and rather than wait out another fifty-or-so years, they decide to eliminate the remaining wind warriors. Then they can begin to destroy the earth, in essence starting things over again.

For some reason I didn't connect completely with Xander. I liked him, but oddly enough I found myself more interested in his friends Sean and Jessica. The relationship between the two was so real and absolutely hilarious. I really hope to see more of them throughout the series.

Xander takes the news of being one of the final wind warriors pretty well. He's a bit stunned, but knowing his life is on the line, he learns everything he can about his power and how to use it. I liked the relationship between him and his grandfather. I also liked that his grandfather had some spunk.

I think at times the story felt a bit rushed. Xander and Sammy were at that point in a relationship where things are new and exciting, but then they basically jumped into insta-love. I had no problem believing Sammy's reasons beyond Xander for not wanting to burn down the earth just yet. She had compassion for people and after being immersed in a regular life, she didn't want it all to end. I think a little more development between her and Xander would make the love connection more real.

I'm glad this is the first of a series because there were a lot of unanswered questions. I will definitely read on to find out how the story unfolds.

Well, there it is--another series that I am going to have to fan girl and obsess over.

I was really struggling to find my new fix waiting for the next Mortal Instruments and Divergent book--well I found it!

Wind Warrior is a amazingly written, thrilling adventure that could totally be made into a movie! It isn't just another story about teens thrust into the important task of saving the world--oh no--it is so much more than that. Wind Warrior doesn't fall into any of the cliches that other young adult books fall into. That is what I liked most about it. Each character--even the unlikable ones--were so richly developed that you can't help but like each and every one of them.

Wind Warrior, just like most book ones in a fantasy series, is a lot of world building, and character development. However, I wasn't bored. Jon was able to suck me into his world without much effort, and wrote the characters so well--along with the perfectly placed action scenes--that I didn't have time to be bored. I was riveted and could see each scene play out in the back of my mind.

Sammy was a perfectly constructed heroine! I wanted to be her--you know that moment when you realize you are fantasizing about being the lead female in a story? Yeah--totally me reading her parts! I love the defiant daughter!

Sean--oh, Sean the trusty sidekick. See, kind of like Simon Lewis in The Mortal Instruments I love him--I'm a nerd so my heart goes to the nerd guy totally.

Bring on some more baddies! Oh, now he's a baddie out for revenge?! I'm all over the scared and pissed baddie!

And Xander--Don't worry--as much as I cried for you--Jon just gave you more of a reason to be a total bad ass in the rest of the series! Your pain will lead the way to great things.
