Its houses lie smoldering on their foundations. The residents take refuge in their homes, afraid to leave. And the town's prodigal son and newest Wind Warrior, Xander Sirocco, has fled. Xander has lost his family, his grandfather is in a coma, and w the fate of the world is in his hands. He has time to figure out his feelings for Sammy-the Fire Wielder who saved his life after first trying to take it-because he has a world to save. But how do seven Wind Warriors fight off an army of Flame Callers... who are determined to burn the world of man down to the earth? When a whispered word gives Xander newfound hope, he sets off to find the very thing that could save them all. They say that Elementals-embodiments of the elemental powers that the different castes wield-are only a myth. Even so, the hope of finding an Elemental is his only chance to save t only the Wind Warriors and Sammy, but also the world itself. Little does Xander kw that while he is out chasing the Wind Elemental, the Fire Elemental is closing in quickly behind him. It has nefarious plans for Sammy... and it will t stop until Xander is dead.
