Overview

'It is not time for you to go home yet, Whitnee,' he told me, and I felt the annoyance bubble up inside of me again.

'Who are you to decide that?'

'And who are you to reject all that is ancient and sacred to our culture?' he spat back. 'You think you just stumbled onto some other place and you can leave as you please. But we are real people with a real history. We have waited for generations for a prophecy to come true, and you act as if it is nothing!'

Transported along with four friends onto a mysterious and magical Island, Whitnee Terradora wants nothing more than to return home safelyâ€"until she starts performing supernatural feats such as cyclones, healing, and communicating with the plant she accidentally set on Fire.

Suddenly, finding the Island seems like more than just a coincidence. When an ancient prophecy causes a controversy among the leaders of the White Island, Whitnee questions who is looking out for her interests, and who is interested only in gaining power. Even Gabriel, her one ally on the Island, has secrets that both confuse and allure her.

Who can Whitnee really trust to find out the truth about herself and her missing father? Could Whitnee really be the answer to the White Island's problems and if so, is it worth the danger of never returning home?

'Dallas has a captivating command of detail...Phantom Island isn't just for teenagers; it's for anyone who hasn't forgotten how to readâ€"how to imagine and empathize and create.... Everything about the Island kept me turning pages when I should have been sleeping.'

What I Liked: 1) The setting. I love the Island. If I could choose any place I've ever visited in a book to live, Phantom Island would be my choice. I may have said that during my Windchaser review, because I felt the same way while reading Windchaser. In Windfall, we to explore the Island even more. We visit the Geodorian lands, the Hydrodorian lands, and the Palladium. *fingers crossed that at some point we get to visit the Pyras in their native lands!* I've also heard, or maybe I dreamed it, that in the next book we'll be getting a map of the White Island. That would be awesome, because the one I drew for myself just doesn't cut it. 2) Gabriel. We got much better acquainted with Gabriel in Windfall. He is in my top five book boyfriends. Hot island guy, a bit of an attitude, with a hidden sensitive side? What girl doesn't want that? I love Caleb too, don't get me wrong. I have a sneaking suspicion that we are leading into a Team Caleb vs. Team Gabriel scenario. Sorry Caleb, I've got to go Team Gabriel all the way. I mean, in my imagination, he never wears a shirt. Ever. 3) The characters. We got to know most of the non-island characters pretty well in Windchaser, but you learn more intimate details about their lives in Windfall. If it's possible, they become even more real. Especially the two younger members of the Traveling party, Amelia and Kevin. 4) The antagonist! One thing I'll say about Windchaser is that there is no clear antagonist. In Windfall, you learn without a doubt who the antagonist is. We're not entirely sure why he/she is the antagonist, though there are some hints. It's nice to know who the common enemy is, and not having to be suspicious of everyone Whitnee and her friends meet while traveling the Island. 5) The ending. There is a big surprise at the end, that made me gasp and then smile with pleasure. If hot island boy abs don't do it for ya, know that the ending holds the promise of a great surprise. What I Didn't Like: The only complaint I have is impatience. I'm too impatient to get back to the Island, waiting until Spring is nearly torturous. Overall thoughts: One of the most creative books I've ever read, Windfall is a masterful study in imagery and character development. I love the characters, the wonderful setting, and the exciting plot. The story is so beautifully painted that it enables your imagination to easily bring it to life. Make sure to add the Phantom Island books to your TBR list if they aren't there yet.

Fantastic Read This one picks up right where Windchaser left off and I love that in a series! The storytelling is so rich and perfectly detailed that you'll feel like you're there. This one moves along at a pace that will have you flipping the pages, holding your breath along with Whitnee, and questioning who to trust. I can hardly wait for the next book!
