Tell the Wind & Fire is about a young girl called Lucie who lives in a New York very different from the New York we know: the city is torn between two very different kinds of magic, and Lucie’s own family was torn apart years ago by that conflict. Lucie wears magic rings and carries a burden of guilt she can’t share with anyone.
The light in her life is her sweetheart boyfriend Ethan, but it turns out Ethan has a secret too: a soulless doppelganger created by dark magic, who has to conceal the face identical to Ethan’s with a hood fastened by a collar nobody but a Light magician with magical rings can take off… and who introduces himself to both of them by, for reasons nobody can understand, saving Ethan’s life…
“Tell the Wind and Fire” by Sarah Rees Brennan was a book that I was really looking forward too. I was just really disappointed in how the story played out. I found myself very bored and confused with the story. I love “A Tale of Two Cities,” but I did not find myself loving this book. I didn’t connect to any of the characters in this story. I feel like the idea of this story is great but I don’t think it was executed very well. It was a very difficult book to get through because nothing captured my attention.
