Review for Phoenix Rising By: Lisa Morgan



Synopsis:
Maggie has lived the last ten years with a woman who isn't her mother and carrying the label "Daughter of John Henning", a man sentenced to live out his days at Sunnyview Psychiatric Hospital after his conviction of fire bombing a church...

and killing the 8 people inside.

What Maggie learns will change her life. 
She is the last of a race of creatures known as "The Phoenix", a race of supernatural beings with the ability to wield and control fire.

And she will need that power now...

Revenants- walking, living, skeletal creatures who have waged a war against an unseen, parallel world known simply as The Realm- need Maggie's blood to bring them to a full power...a power that will give them an unbeatable edge and offer the deciding weapon in this war.

Maggie is not alone as she learns not only what she really is, but what it is her destiny to become...


My Review: 5 out of 5 stars

This was a fantastic book, I loved every moment! I love the take on the revenant culture, I loved the whole phoenix outlook and I loved the sadness, the happiness, the intenseness and the love. I couldn’t believe everything that happened, it was crazy and epic. I want to read book two to see where it takes me. I liked everything, the fae, the witches, the vampires, and the angels, they all had a negative and positive outlook and it was great. You get to view the world from the outside but also from the inside. You get to experience love, hate, loss, and finding of yourself. I was intrigued this whole time and I can say I absolutely loved this book! I am glad I got the chance to read it!
