I was a huge fan of the cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and this book was like a knock off from that. (That is if it had been set in modern times and Aang was a college student who had a crush on a fire bender... er... "Fire warrior."
Despite my obvious hang ups that sent me on a violent rampage throughout my house in search of my fellow readers... the writing wasn't bad. So after I cooled off, I decided to come back and state the things that I DID like and rate it more on that than completely on my hangups.
It was well written. The descriptions were crisp clear and understandable. The characters were greatly developed so the usual side character acting "out of character" never happened and that made me happy. The thoughts and conversations seemed real and not forced. The author twisted the tale to make it his own rather than a full blown knock off. The writing style was wonderful and flowed well. I enjoyed the story enough to finish the book, even though I had the ... anger that I did. (My anger was pointed at the fact, that instead of writing something truly unique, he copied an anime series. He has talent and a brilliant knack for writing. I wish I would have found one of his other works, then I probably wouldn't be so disappointed.)
I know many would enjoy this tale, but me being a fan of the television series and even the movie, I probably won't proceed past this novel. I hope many do enjoy this book, and I wish the writer luck.
I did enjoy the story of the elementals and the fight for control over the Earth. I had a hard time with this book because it felt rushed at times and things weren't fleshed out enough. There didn't seem to be a lot of explanation or development of the characters. I never really got a good connection to any of them. There were times where a character would act a certain way with absolutely no explanation as to why they did it. I think this could be a much better story if some information was given along with the event that is happening or at the very least some more character development. I also noticed quite a few grammatical errors but not enough to detract from the story. I think this could be a 4-4.5 story if more of the story was fleshed out. Right now I have to give it 3 books. I have the 2nd book in the series Flame Caller, but have not started it yet. I'm a little hesitant as I don't have any real connection to the story or the characters.
Wind Warriors have balanced the earth for the last couple thousand years, but Fire Warriors are up to bat and tired of waiting. Thus, a battle for survival and destruction begins. This story touches on family, supernatural, young relationships and goes above a simple good-vs-evil as both warrior sects serve a purpose. With any battle, there are power-hungry, deadly foes. But what happens when a Wind Warrior and a Fire Warrior join forces? Well...you'll have to read to find out.
Again, I highly, highly recommend this series for the young or young-at-heart. For adult readers who want a little more grit/violence/language/etc - this is too clean for you (and me).
I was really looking forward to reading Wind Warrior. I think the cover is amazing and it was really what grabbed me. What I was not expecting was that it read like a middle grade book. The whole time I kept thinking of Percy Jackson and Bobby Pendragon yet this novel is for adults. Xander is a 20 year old college student living at home and having nothing much going for him till he develops a super power. The writing was pretty simple which even though Xander is a 20 year old man , I kept think he was a young teenager. I think I had real trouble picturing him as older.
Now as for the story, I thought it was pretty good. It kept me pretty interested and it was really quick read. The story was really fact paced and I sorta wish there was more development in the back story. Here's hoping more is revealed in the upcoming novels.
Overall , I liked Wind Warrior and plan on reading the next book in the series.
