(The Color of Fear)



Written by Lyndi Alexander


Genre: Science Fiction, Young Adult Dystopian


Book Synopsis


Bio-terrorists release a plague in the United States that spreads to kill most of the world’s Caucasian population. As the deadly virus mutates, Tzu Shin, a renowned medical doctor and biologist, defects from China to help develop a cure. His only daughter, Lin Kwan, is left behind in Hong Kong with her aunt.

Then Kwan’s father summons her from across the sea to bring him Chinese medicinal herbs he needs to develop a cure. Lonely and missing her parents, she accepts the challenge, traveling with her sensei Li Zhong to the New World.

But a Chinese assassin is on her trail, determined to kill her and Li Zhong, and when Kwan discovers her father has disappeared, she sets out on a journey to find him and deliver her precious cargo, a quest that she may not survive.

Walki's Review


Windmills' is a dystopian novel. The Second Holocaust was unleashed by terrorists in California, most white people died in North America and the virus mutated. The main character is the seventeen-year-old Lin Kwan from the cramped quarters of Hong Kong.

This is the gripping telling of Lin Kwan's odyssey from Hong Kong to her scientist father, or at least part of the way, as 'Windmills' is only the beginning of her adventures. As expected she meets good and bad people on the way, each with something to teach her.

Lyndi Alexander brings us a wonderful supporting cast and a heroin whose physical skills equals her strength of character, on a background of Chinese philosophy.
