To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive at first; I am very particular when it comes to what I want to read (tell my English teachers), and I am looking for certain aspects when I read fanon. Alone didn't meet only a few of them, or so I thought. But, what kept me away, most of all, was thinking that it was a mindless series about what it would be like if benders somehow appeared in this world. I assumed it was one of those series' that had the author as a main character, usually the Avatar, and was going to be a random string of storylines that had no overarching plot.
I was wrong.
While the bending performed by a beginner in several arts is a bit of a stretch, it makes for well done action sequences. I have begun to appreciate Millennia's series as he has mine. I find the idea of 'Bending colonies' interesting, and how he has tied bending cover-ups to real world disasters is very intriguing. Each chapter brings the Avatar,, closer to mastery over the four elements in hopes of defeating .
BTW, Millenia, whenever you read this, I would love to know how the Leader can possibly bend 2 elements.
Anyway, I won't give away any plot spoilers, but I will highly recommend this series to you; coming from a skeptic, it is advisable that you take the time to read this series.
