    1. My church book group picked this book because Krissi Dallas is a Burleson woman and we wanted to support the home town girl. It is YA Fantasy, which is my favorite genre. My one ciriticism is that it didn't follow the 300 printed words per page format. There were a lot more words and I think it puts people off from reading it. I thought it was occasionally didactic in places. It had a lot of romance,relationship stuff in it (nothing that a middle school student couldn't read, Krissi is the wife [...]

    2. What I Liked: 1) The characters. The main characters of Whitnee, Morgan, and Caleb are all well-rounded and unique characters with fully explored histories. The first thing that strikes me about Miz Dallas's writing is how real her characters become. They don't just come into being when you open the first page, they are living, breathing people with histories, quirks, personalities, and lives. It doesn't take long to start to view them as your friends, rather than characters in a book. 2) Camp F [...]

    3. On the hunt for a highly imaginative, highly engaging book? Then Windchaser is an adventure you won't want to miss! The cover, the description, and a friend's praise of the book made me eager to give the book a try, and I'm so very glad I did!The story begins at Camp Fusion, the quintessential summer camp that shines in all its youthful promise. Whitnee, Morgan, and Caleb, three inseparable friends who met at Camp Fusion years ago, return to the place of renewal in order to help middle-school ca [...]

    4. I was honestly surprised by how much I liked this book. Krissi is an amazing writer and I really do hope this book gets more discovered, it definitely deserves it. The story was good, entertaining, and well written. I seriously felt like these characters were real. They weren't just imagined and thrown together, like many other books' characters. Definitely worth getting. :)

    5. What a fantastic read! I was turning the pages lightning fast, and didn't want it to end (which is honestly rare for me). One of those books you can't stand to put down. Nowwhere is the second one? Oh, yes. Right here on my Nook!! :)

    6. A fabulous read -- incredibly creative and fun. I'm a Hydrodorian (Water tribe) all the way, baby!

    7. Review:This book has been on my TBR for a very long time and I finally made a spot for it right before the author comes to town. I was pleasantly pleased by this book. I was creative, original, and very enjoyable. I loved it from the beginning to the end, never a dull moment, and full of surprises. This was a story of magic and mystery. Long Story Short:Whitnee lost her father 6 years ago, he just disappeared and she still doesn't know if he is dead or living up somewhere without her and her mot [...]

    8. Reviewed by Marta Morrison for TeensReadTooI just finished reading probably one of the best books that I have read in the last few years.Whitnee's father mysteriously disappeared six years ago. Whitnee and her mother have missed him and refuse to think he is dead.The first summer after he went missing, Whitnee went to a summer camp, Camp Fusion, where there were counselors who dealt with emotional problems. There she met Morgan and Caleb, who become her two best friends. Now they are back at cam [...]

    9. Since I teach 7th grade, I love to read YAF. Sometimes this gets very stale, but Phantom Island: Wind was definitely a breath of fresh air. The writing was well-thought out, the plot was full of twist & turns and the main character was complicated without being annoying. Whitnee Terradora has had a life full of complication since the mysterious disappearance of her father over 6 years ago. She returns to Camp Fusion, a camp for troubled kids, only this time as a counselor instead of a camper [...]

    10. Really enjoyed reading this first book in a series. Had an opportunity to hear the author speak at Montgomery County Book Festival in Conroe, Texas. Ms Dallas is a wonderful voice in the YA Fantasy genre. She has three well developed characters in Whitnee, Morgan and Caleb who are mentors at a summer camp for troubled teens. Camp Fusion, a camp that helped them when they were younger and dealing with heartbreaking events in their young lives. Events lead Whitnee to be pulled into exploring a for [...]

    11. The story was one that was unusual but had a familiar feel of sci/fi fantasy with the alternate world aspect. I enjoyed the world building of the island that most of the story took place on. I think the author did a wonderful job of describing and making the island real. The magical powers that pertain to the Earth, Fire, Wind, and Water were fun to read about as well. The writing style was fun but also kept well with the feel of the story. The book was very fast paced and I wasn’t able to put [...]

    12. This book will hook you from the first page. If you liked Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, or any books in those genres, you will LOVE the Phantom Island series. Krissi Dallas is a masterful author, pulling you into a world of magic, mystery, and action.

    13. Oh. My God. Sign me up to live on the island!! I can't wait to see what happens next in this series! This is a fantastic fantasy adventure, written by a talented author with a firm handle on all aspects of teen-dom. A marvelous debut and the first of a series that is sure to impress.

    14. I loved this book.I can't wait to read the new, revised edition when Phantom Island makes it's commercial publishing debut later this year : )So much excitement : )

    15. The best series I have ever read. Krissi has a way to get you totally involved in the story. The characters and the plot will leave you wanting to go to the island.

    16. Loved it. Defiantly a books that needs to get its name out there. Once that happens, people will be swarming left and right to grasp a copy for themselves. :D

    17. I absolutely loved it! Krissi Dallas came to our school to talk about the book. I am glad she did because I would have never read it. I so can not wait for Water!

    18. I really wanted to love this book. I actually got to meet the author, Krissi Dallas, at a young adult literature festival my school was putting on. Her book sounded interesting, so I picked it up in the library a few weeks later.Before I really get into it, let me say I'm a fan of the amazing book Storm, by Brigid Kemmerer, which is also about people with elemental powers. So I may have had unrealistic expectations, because that book is fantastic.The book begins on the drive to Camp Fusion, wher [...]

    19. Definitely gets better after the 100 page mark. Kinda boring before, but it gets good eventually.

    20. I looked up Windchaser after reading Dallas’s great story, “Pink Snow,” from the Winter Wonders anthology. For the review sites where ratings are given in stars, I’d just like to say that if I could add an extra half star to the three, I would for this one. I was really on the fence rating-wise by the time I got to the end, but I felt three came closest to summing up the experience as a whole.The basics: Whitnee, Morgan, and Caleb, three best friends and former campers from Camp Fusion, [...]

    21. WOW! What a wonderful read!I had never heard of this series, but by luck was at my local Barnes & Noble when Krissi was there doing a book promotion & signing! The books looked interesting so I figured "WHY NOT"! THANKFULLYI bought all 4 books in the series available at this time! After reading this book, I can't wait to keep going! I just hope that by the time I finish the 4th book the next ones are ready! (Krissi said there are supposed to be 8 total in this series!)I probably would ha [...]

    22. All in all, this book was alright I liked the idea behind the camp for trouble teens. The concept of the Power of Elements is extremely cliched though, especially to read about the special connections they had with their elements and personality traits. Meh. It's ultimate downfall is the drama. Choking, blinding, disgusting, DRAMA.My other complaint is that near the end of the book, it just cuts off. Randomly. I felt so confused and a little frustrated. Why didn't the author at least close up th [...]

    23. It is a very interesting book. It leaves you with a lot of questions, though, the main wone is "Is her Ffather alive?" It tooj me a while to get Fully captivated in the book. It leads you to believe it's going to be another love story during the summer but once you get past the first 6 chapters or so, it leads up to the mystery in a why you wouldn't expect.

    24. i like it but for me it one of the book you would not read again.i mean i like the charters but not the story

    25. Wow! Bought this a year ago and hadn't gotten around to reading it. So great! Grabbed me and kept a hold of me! Bought the next three books!
