Sara Jo Easton drew the first Onizards when she was bored in math class (in her defense, it was the second day in a row of graphing a plane). Over a decade later, she has attended college for Journalism, has traveled extensively, and has somehow obtained two insane cats. Times may have changed since she first started writing novels in the 8th grade, but she would still get bored in math class if she had to spend two days in a row graphing planes.

Just like the first book in the Onizards series, "The Speed of Wind" is a well written book, which will catch readers with its thought through story and the wonderful characters.
The second book in the Onizards series deals with the revenge the Fire Queen wants to bring down on the Sandleyr. Main characters this time aren't Jena and her bond but Bryn the second Zarder. After the Fire Queen takes hostages, Bryn and his bonded Onizard Xolt are send to rescue their friends.
Just like the first book this one isn't all action packed, but it is still a thrilling book, that has you wondering all the time about what will happen next. There are some surprising twists and turns in the story, keeping the plot fresh and lively.
The author has a wonderful style, describing emotions so well, that you can feel them along with the characters. You laugh with them and you cry with them.
I'm looking forward to the next book in this new and fascinating series.

If you like magical books, this is the one for you. This book is the second in the series. The first one is called The Zarder. The story line will keep you going. There is death, laughter, suspense, romance, sadness, and bonding. This book brings so many different aspects of reading; that it keeps you so interested you have to finish the book. Do not let the prologue confuse you if you have not read the first book yet. It just jumps right in with what is going on, I believe just in case you haven’t read the first one yet. I got a little nervous at first. I wasn’t sure what was going on, so I had to read it a couple times. I would recommend this book for young adult and up readers. There are some big names used. The plot of the story is good enough for a middle school student, but they might have a hard time with the names of the Onizards. I really do wish there were illustrations. I know most say you should use your own imagination, but I would have loved to see more Onizards illustrated the way Sara Jo. Easton intended them. I believe she expected them to look more like dragons, because that is the way Delma described them. Her covers reveal them looking more like unicorns, so I am unsure what her intentions are. Delma is the little human girl whose family was killed by the ex-Fire Queen. Overall, I believe this is a great book and should be read by those who love magical experiences, romance, suspense, and death. This is a long journey that Xolt, Bryn and Delma have to go on to rescue Ransenna, Deldenno, and Idenno. Will they all survive? Will they be able to get their revenge on the Fire Queen or will she escape? Will Bryn make it back to be with his wife? These are all questions you ask yourself as you are reading this story. By the end of the story you are ready to purchase the third book in the series, The Blood of Senbralnil.
