"The Phoenix Chronicles has everything and isn\'t shy about mixing things up a bit"
As one of the only few people around who can battle the
demons who have escaped from the darkest level of hell,
Elizabeth Phoenix knows she isn't winning the battle any
day soon. However Liz is determined to stop Doomsday even
though she knows how difficult it is going to be. People
she thought were dead aren't dead anymore and there are
things that want to destroy Liz and the people she loves.
The upcoming Apocalypse has Liz looking for help all over
the place. She and her ex-lover, Jimmy Sanducci have some
personal problems they have to sort out but together they
are fighting against one common enemy. Then there is the
Navajo shaman Sawyer who Liz wants to trust but isn't sure
if he should be trusted. Also on her side, or so she
thinks, is a fairy and a Lion shape shifter. The Apocalypse
is growing close and Liz is finally starting to find out
more about herself and the people she thought were her
friends. Will they survive or perish together?
The Phoenix Chronicles are a must buy for me. Lori
Handeland has been a favourite of mine for a while and this
series is a treat. I needed a few chapters to get back into
Liz and her world but after that I was hooked as always.
These books are just like the cool TV Series Supernatural
but with a kick-ass heroine in the lead instead of the two
This series is a different kind of Urban Fantasy for me.
Where as most series keep to one paranormal element and
maybe invite others in now and again, the Phoenix
Chronicles has everything and isn't shy about mixing things
up a bit. All kinds of legends, fantasy and myths come out
to play in this nail-biting series that has me on the edge
of my seat.
What will happen next? I wish I knew! There was a bit of a
cliffhanger but the next in the series, Chaos Bites, is due
out in April. So there isn't a long wait! If you haven't
tried this yet then I really suggest you do. Hard, deep and
dark this series kicks, bites and throws punches all over
the place and doesn't take any prisoner's! Just the way I
like it ;)
