This is billed as a love story - which indeed it is - between a windwalker/sylph and a guy who's more than he seems, and more than he knows. There's action and adventure, but the focus in this book is on the developing relationship between Audra and Vane. It also deals with family and friendship and the different kinds of love we face in our lives.
The book is written from two shifting points of view - one for each of the main characters. I sometimes find this style a little jarring, but done well it's very engaging. And it's done well here. Messenger credits her husband with helping her to channel her inner teen snarky boy and all I can say is, I wonder what their home life is like because this is very realistic. So ... engaging characters, original plot, and the promise of more to come - this book is the beginning of a new series. But I still really liked the ending - not a cliffhanger. There's a lot more ground for our hero and heroine to cover in future books but this story wraps up their initial journey nicely. I would recommend it as a really fun summer read and I look forward to the next one.
