Kobi and his twin Raili discover a soft patch in their bedroom floor. A box appears in it, intriguing the boys who grab it. When they grab it something comes up and grabs Raili's ankle pulling him into the hole. Kobi grabs him to pull him out but is not strong enough to keep Raili within his grasp in J. S Council's Return to Zire, book 1 of Airion series. Kobi jumps in after Raili but is attacked by something in the deep ocean that springs up. What is happening to the boys? Will they live or be killed? Where are they going?
Return to Zire is full of action and adventure. Kobi and Raili have been living lives on earth. They will now discover their pasts. They will also learn the destiny of their futures. These are two good characters that your pre-teen and teenage child will enjoy. The boys are twins but they have different personalities. It also seems they have different destinies.
The story starts slowly but after the boys are in the ocean and discover Airion and its history the story picks up and moves quickly to its cliffhanger ending. We learn about the characters as J. S. Council builds the Airion world and history. The character development is good as we meet all the characters. I got a true sense of who and what they were. I did figure out what was happening to the one leader on the bad guys' side before it was revealed to me but that was the only thing I figured out.
By the end of Return to Zire I wanted the book not to end so I could find out what happens next, if cooler heads would prevail, if Raili would be safe or go to the dark side. Now I have to wait for the next book to have these questions answered.
Kobi learns that his twin Raili has been captured and that they may have been betrayed by someone close. He has to find his brother before their fourteenth birthday when they are to come into a magical power which could be controlled by the wrong people. With war threatening on the horizon two nations will be looking at Kobi and Raili to see if the prophecies about them are true or not.
I enjoyed reading Airion: Return to Zire, as it followed the twins who landed in different parts of their new world. Kobi in Zire and Raili in Cella, two nations who may be going to war, this creates for an incredible twist which makes for an incredible adventure.
This is a fantasy you can easily slip into and enjoy. I've always found fantasies that involve families, destiny and war, stories that I'll come back to and re-read as they have a different narrative and quality about them. Airion: Return to Zire is a book that will be staying in my library and its sequel Airion: Light and Dawn will soon be keeping it company.
The world building in this story is fantastic. The plot is very well thought out and the characters grow as the story continues. A great start to a new series, I'm ready for the next story.
