Seventeen year old Nicky Barrett has woken to find herself in a world that is not her own. All alone in a land that is reminiscent of the old west and full of characters that have arrived there throughout time, she must decide who she can trust and how she’s going to survive.
Wind is the first book in the 360 series and follows Nicky as she arrives in a world that looks very similar to hers but is completely different. Cell phones and laptops won't help here because they don't work! There's no power and the winds that come once a year blow away any structure made by man.
It's okay though because, along with a dog she found abandoned in the street, she meets Marshal, a crazy red headed boy about the same age as her, who came to this world in 1909. After killing the local bad guy, Nicky has earned a place in Marshal's underground hideout where she can stay safe away from the winds.
She soon encounters more characters who have fallen into this world throughout time. Emma Lee is a southern belle from 19th century Kentucky, Billy is ten and came in the 1950's, and Cornelius has been there for over five hundred years and his eccentric English personality is evident as he emerges from his tent in full cowboy gear complete with rifles and telescope.
Sounds good right? Not really. There are idiots here too; men who want to prove their manhood by playing dictator over everyone else. Butcher was one but Nicky shot him. Pig's another who meets an unfortunate end and then there's Max. Dark, handsome with a sexy Scottish accent. What's with him and where did he come from? Nicky will just have to figure that out for herself.
Did you ever believe that time travel was possible? What if it were? What if we've always been able to cross through the centuries just by closing our eyes? What else could our dreams mean when we enter a room that seems so real we know we've actually been there? Our dreams are our time machines and we can travel anywhere or anytime we want. All we have to do is close our eyes.
That's what happens to Annabelle Roberts. She's a traveller and can go anywhere; she just can't control any of it. She's been doing it for a long time now; ever since her father died, and she just wants it to stop. That's when Orin, a boy from one of her dreams shows up in her class one day and Annabelle's life starts to become complicated.
Jett is dark and mysterious and seems to know exactly what she needs but something about him sends chills down Annabelle's spine. Now two boys are vying for her affedtion and she has no idea why.
Is she somebody special? Does she hold some kind of special power that can help mankind? Annabelle must be awakened soon before evil reigns over all.
