Blurb: 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.

This book was a bit short for my tastes. But it was a very engaging story that I read with ease. I kinda feel a bit like there was no closure. Nothing was really answered enough for my tastes. This is my second book by Mr Messenger and it was a nice change in between reading my other books.
Xander is pretty cool. He has a good head on his shoulders and we get taken into the action almost right away. The emotion in this book is lacking, hence the minus one star. I didn’t really feel the attraction between him and… well, anyone in the book. The only thing that really stood out emotionally for me was the head butting he had with his father. Hello kindred spirit! I feel so hard on that one Xander!
The fire caste were some great bad guys. Very violent and angry, but we still never find out why. We didn’t really learn much about why they wanted to kill all the wind caste and take over. And that left me wanting.
