Branden Bell's imagination is the reason he meets success with the young readers. He keeps the suspense intriguing. His heroes and heroines are teenagers, who conquer the evil.
Conner, Lexa and Melanie all share a special gift and they find out what that gift is when they find themselves aware of the evil that protrudes from inside a hooded man, who suddenly seems to be wherever they are and the fact that they are the only ones who can see him. This man is only the beginning of the suspense that follows.
One thing I liked about this book is that Branden has made some teachers and the principal of the three teens school, heros and heroines as well, who kindled years before and who aid in protecting and mentoring Conner, Lexa and Melanie in how to use their power.
The Kindling is filled with action, danger, clear Bell imagination and emotion. Kids will be captivated with this book.
