Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.

My Review:

Ethan Sutcliff is a Bender. A Bender is some who can control witches powers, bend them and make them do what they want. Benders are witches guardians; they watch over them and keep them safe. Ethan has not been able to use his powers since he was fifteen years old. If he wants to use his powers again he must find his Wielder.

Alex Burgendorf is the last Earth Wielder who has been in hiding for the last sixteen years with her mother and father. Alex must find her Bender before it is too late. She has no idea who her Bender is or how she is going to find him but she is sure she will know him when she comes in contact with him.

I love the world the author has created in Hinder. I love the Benders who can bind the witches’ powers. Benders who can bind an Earth Wielder, Fire Wielder, Air Wielder and Water Wilder’s powers to their will. This has been an epic journey one in which I have enjoyed tremendously and hope to see more of these amazing characters or maybe even more of Fire, Air and Water Wielders.
