A fantastic beginning to an imaginative and exciting new series, Watchtowers, this novel creates a world that verges on perfect. However, the intelligent, powerful yet unbalanced villain doesn't see it that way. The development of Jade and Raiden's relationship is wonderful. Raiden is all a hero should be, and the gradual revelations about both main characters keep the story moving at a good pace.

In the year 3033 A.D., a powerful sorcerer who can manipulate the elements plans to wipe the earth clean and build a utopian civilization. Four women, born of the elements, with their elemental soul mate, possess the ability to stop him. Raiden is a mercenary, hired to find the source of strange weather patterns causing mass destruction.

What he finds is Jade, a woman with an untrained gift to control the air. Though Raiden has no desire to become involved with her, his overwhelming attraction to her, and the fact that it appears she plays an important part in the future of the world, has him completely changing his life's course. (Triskelion, Dec., 312 pp., $6.99)
