In “Phantom Island: Wind,” 17-year-old Whitnee Terradora arrives with her two friends as employees at Camp Fusion, their childhood summer camp. Soon, Whitnee experiences puzzling visions about the forbidden side of the Frio River and her missing father. When Whitnee and her friends make the fateful decision to cross the river, they enter a mystifying new realm.
The five explorers find themselves on the beautiful White Island, greeted by the mysterious and gloriously handsome native Gabriel. They soon learn that the four tribes on the island have powers from the four life forces and are able to manipulate their surroundings: the gray-eyed Aerodorians have the gift of wind, the practical Geodorians coax crops to grow with their emerald eyes, the peaceful Hydrodorians use their water properties to heal and the passionate Pyradorians use fire to forge metal into art. Whitnee’s connection to the island only grows as she discovers her own strange powers, along with a blossoming attraction for Gabriel. Whitnee must navigate her romantic feelings while unlocking the dark, complicated mysteries of her family’s past and her own future:
“This is similar to an Earth Shield or a Wind Blocker, but it attaches itself to your entire body. We call it the Mist because that is what you look like. Allow me to demonstrate.” Thomas took a big chug of water and then his eyes lit up sapphire blue. All of a sudden, we were looking at a wispy, watery version of him.
“Whoa,” I responded when he released the Mist.
“That was so …” Caleb paused, searching for the word, “… so X-Men.”

Krissi Dallas prides herself on having “strong Southern roots.” She grew up in San Antonio, Texas, the characters’ hometown in “Phantom Island: Wind.” Dallas majored in family psychology and minored in applied ministry at Oklahoma Baptist University, and currently teaches pre-AP middle school English. Dallas and her husband (a youth and missions pastor) created Fusion Student Ministries, a youth group that does mission work. “My experience on a daily basis with teenagers has certainly contributed to my ability to write a realistic young adult novel,” says Dallas. “The dialogue comes straight from real life most of the time.” She hopes to finish the next installment of the “Phantom Island” series by next summer, “Phantom Island: Water.”
