Review #169: Phoenix Angel- A. Gerry and C. Hall

Synopsis: “The authors’ depiction of joy and cruelty in high school rings true, and the hints of a darker reality will leave readers with the best kind of cliff-hanger.” – Kirkus Reviews

What is happening to us? I’ve asked this question a thousand times, but there is no answer.

I was a normal teenager, trudging my way through senior year with my best friend. Then a boy named Kyle Spencer came to Idaho Falls, and since then everything has fallen apart. Something mysterious has passed among the three of us. We’ve developed terrifying abilities—strange powers that separate us from normal people.

Even worse, someone—or something—has taken a deadly interest in us. We never know when they are going to strike, or how to protect ourselves. We don’t even know who they are.
All we know is that they want one of us alive, and we don’t know who. The others they want dead.

Which will I be?

Title: Phoenix Angel
Authors: A. Gerry and C. Hall
Series: Shardwell
Pages: 329
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author when I won it in a giveaway. My friend had actually won a prize pack with book one, two and a t-shirt and when I mentioned that, they graciously sent me the same thing!! I am super grateful for that. I like the book over because I believe that it gives the reader an insight of what is to come in the novel and also in the next book. I liked how it started as contemporary but quickly turned into a fantasy read. I was pretty confused through almost the whole book until about 75% in, then everything started to come together and make sense. But then I got mad because it ended right when things were getting good lol.
I enjoyed looking at how the characters all ended up in the same place. I liked watching their relationships blossom, even though I did find them to be a bit insta- love. I can't wait for book two because after what you learn at the end of book one I feel like we will get a ton more information
about these characters and why they feel the way they do about each other.
This book was definitely a new experience for me and I can't wait to get started one book two. Hopefully book two will answer all of the questions that Phoenix Angel stirred up. I would recommend this book to fantasy lovers.

About this author

Her fondness of writing comes from many sources, but the most prominent is her avid devotion to video games.
