“Why did I possibly think I could do anything to end this war? I was a fool, and now I have one week to get the twins out of here, or I may never see them again.”
The seven tribal nations are at war, and as a taporo, Kit can finally do something to save her people. But Kit can’t shake the feeling she’s playing a game she doesn’t understand and if she agrees to fight, she’ll lose the ones she loves the most.
Firestorm is the highly anticipated conclusion to The Windstorm Series, a fast-paced fantasy trilogy that critics are calling a “thrilling head-rush of an adventure” (Kirkus Reviews).
Robison is a fantastic story-teller; one who gradually draws you into the story until you are fully immersed into the setting and bonded with the characters. In a time when many books are claiming to be the next Hunger Games or Divergent, Robison takes the themes of these popular YA novels and adds her own twist.
The biggest twist is one that is sorely missing in the publishing industry – diversity. The main characters in the series are part of tribal nations, ones that can trace their history back to the First People. I loved how Robison wove traditional mythos from ancestral groups into her stories…[This] is a great adventure series that sneaks in some terrific life lessons about loyalty, friendship, love, and family.
I couldn’t put the book down and finished reading it in a day. Katie is an excellent writer and tells a truly unique story. I loved the characters and felt that she stayed true to each of them throughout the trilogy. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend.
This last installment of the Windstorm Trilogy did not disappoint. The author gave the reader excitement, intrigue, anguish and just enough romance. Katie writes visually. I could feel and visualize what her character Kit was experiencing. This tribe of people are described with so much detail it’s hard to believe they do not live among us. Always sad when a trilogy comes to an end. I highly recommend the series.
Firestorm was a wonderful read! Action packed and full of twists that I didn’t see coming. This book had me feeling all sorts of emotions. Sadness, frustration, anxiety, anger, relief, happiness, contentment. I was happy with the romance part of the plot. Some YA books can get pretty ridiculous with all the love triangles going on, but Katie Robinson did a very good job of making you feel the emotions without all the drama. I think Kit does a lot of growing up in the series and I loved that she finds a reason to stand up and fight for what she believes in. There were many heart breaking moments but this book wouldn’t be as good with out them. All in all I definitely recommend this book and series.
A powerful ending to an exceptional trilogy. This action-packed finale is the perfect ending to the epic story with all kinds of twists and turns along the way. Very satisfying. Very moving. Very well-written. I can’t wait to see what Robison comes up with next.
YES!!!!! Firestorm is such a wonderful and satisfying end to the Windstorm Series. It’s the best book yet. Both Kit and Robison have come a long way since Downburst, and this final book takes an already excellent series to a whole new level. The book takes on a more mature outlook as it delves into what defines family, war, loyalty, life, sacrifice, and love. It gets beyond the common YA literature clichés and takes things to a deeper, truer level. It’s not often that I finish a book and immediately want to read it again, but Firestorm did that for me.
This was a fantastic ending to this series. It was fast-paced and action-packed. There was great character development–especially with Kit– and I felt that it answered all the questions that were left in book #1 and #2. I liked that there wasn’t a “Hollywood Ending” that is common in YA literature.
Books #1 and #2 left a LOT of questions in my mind, so I’m pleased to have them finally answered with this last of the series. Book #2, especially, left me reeling as to what was really going in in the wind walker world (sidenote–I love the uniqueness of the wind walker world. A brand new fantasy world within our world that seems so fresh to me). This book satisfactorily answered those questions, leaving me satisfied, but albeit a bit sad. A satisfying ending to the series.
