A Fading Wind by Melody Crevoiserat
Dale's world will never be the same again. This mysterious affliction has been sweeping through the world of the Ten Cities, leaving an unseen destruction in its wake.
Wherever this blight is found, the mystical Wardens can no longer feel the life energies of the plants and animals they have been chosen to shepherd. Even Justyn Aginforth, the most powerful of the Wardens, whose rare Talent for the earth is unprecedented, is at a loss on how to combat this new menance.
From the moment they meet, Dale gets swept into Justyn's quest to discover the source of this Fading, and find a way to stop it before it can overtake the entire world.
But Justyn finds another mystery in Dale. She is not the simple Tree Warden she believes herself to be, and seems to have a connection to this scourge upon the earth. Unraveling these hidden secrets leads them to the very doors of the Warden Academy itself, but it may already be too late.
A Fading Wind was a great story. The plot flowed smoothly, with no noticeable plot holes. I wish Benn would have been in the book more. Even though he was a minor character, he was my favorite character. I liked the main characters, Justyn and Dale. I thought the way the author spelled Justyn was original and cool. I had also never heard Dale used as a woman's name before. The main characters were very well developed. They not only had strong powers, but they went through a lot of unfortunate mishaps on the way to the academy. Even with everything they went through, they finished their quest without giving up. This was a great book by a debut author. I will definitely be reading more of Crevoiserat's work in the future. I recommend A Fading Wind for fans of supernatural books.
I give A Fading Wind: 5/5.
