I was contacted by the author, Cheryl Landmark, and agreed to review an e-book copy of her novel Wind and Fire. This novel was surprisingly short considering the length of most epic fantasy books. However, this may have helped in keeping the plot moving along while maybe losing a little in actual world building. Wind and Fire is your standard epic/quest good vs evil type of fantasy that introduces us to Tenya, our 16 year old heroine, who missing her mother, is constantly bullied by her ...more

One girl's magical awakening will bring about a whole new adventure and test the limits of her strength like she's never known before.

19-year old Tenya does not have it easy.

With her mother being missing for more than 16 years, Tenya finds herself stuck in the day to day drudgery of doing household chores, with a melancholy father who barely notices her and a step-mother who treats her like the dust of Cinderella's shoes.

All her life she's been plagued by mysterious and strange visions, all the

My Rating: 3/5 stars

The synopsis above describes the plot of the story really well so I’ll limit the details in my own summary. Nineteen-year-old Tenya starts out as a weak and fragile character as she struggled through her daily life. Her father was drowning himself, literally, in his depression while her step-mother acted more like a slave-driver than any kind of mother figure. Tenya does show some backbone when she finally breaks and decides to stand up to her step-mother. But her actions

Disclosure: I received this ebook for free in exchange for an honest review.

My New Year's resolution for this year was to step outside my comfort zone as much as possible; reading this book is one instance of fulfilling this resolution. In the past, if I would see that a book featured a teenaged female protagonist in a supernatural setting, I would have just passed over it to avoid accidentally picking up a Twilight-esque book. After reading Wind and Fire, I realize how big of a mistake this

This was a epic tale of a young girl learning that she is not so normal after all and that everything is not what it seems. She steps into a magical world that was put together very well by Cheryl Landmark. The story was action packed and it flowed nicely.

If you like fantasy, action, heroines and villains then chances are you will like this!

This was one of those novels that you shouldn't judge by its cover. It was a great début novel and I look forward to seeing what Cheryl Landmark

Good read for people looking for a classic epic fantasy novel. Would have had more stars but the story was a little bit predictable. I kept waiting for something to happen that would mix it up but it carried on pretty much as I expected. This will probably not be an issue for most people so don't let my comments put you off if what you are looking for is a well told epic fantasy story. I was also confused by Tenya's easy dismissal of her father (despite his flaws) and her complete acceptance of ...more

In Wind and Fire, Cheryl Landmark has crafted your classic fantasy novel: a quest, a damsel in distress, a super evil bad guy, fantastical creatures, and really cool good guys. As in all of my favorite novels, Landmark writes characters that you want to know—they are good to each other (well, except the bad guys), have fun interactions and have good senses of humor. They grow in the process, and the world she created is one I liked spending time in. I do have to complain that the book needs ...more

I wasn't quite sure about this novel when I was asked to review it. Not because the story didn't sound interesting, it totally did. But because I was asked to read the entire book on my computer. Sitting at my computer reading is not my favorite thing to do. However, I was surprised at how quickly the time flew by. I really enjoyed Wind and Fire. It's an easy, fast paced read. Tenya is a fantastic character who encounters good and evil on her journey, while coming to grips with her powers and ...more

This is a very enjoyable read for those who like a bit of sci-fi and magic. Ms. Landmark has an awesome imagination and has created a very likeable heroine and a uniqueness for the future in her novel, Wind and Fire. There's a lot of action, a lot of mystical powers and one bad hombre in this story I'm sure you'll enjoy.

Cheryl Landmark is the first author to ever contact me for a review. So, naturally, I was psyched and said yes! Not to mention, she's Canadian, and I happen to have a soft spot for local authors.

I found Wind and Fire to be very Lord-of-the-Rings-esque. The main character Tenya embarks on an epic quest and there's a lot of traveling. Not typically my cup of tea but it's good to switch things up every now and then. Landmark creates a pretty remarkable world in this novel; full of magic, courage

I live in a small hamlet called Gros Cap just west of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada on the magnificent shore of Lake Superior. I've always been a voracious reader, even as a child, and that has inspired me to create my own fantasy worlds. There's nothing quite like seeing your imagination transformed into a published novel. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, doing challenging jigsaw puzzles, ...more
