    The second book in the Phoenix Fire series is a riveting action

    The second book in the Phoenix Fire series is a riveting action packed read. I was totally engrossed in this story from the very beginning, its gripping emotional drama and captivating characters drew me in from the very first page. The author kept me guessing with some surprising twists that I sure didn’t see coming and this fascinating world just keeps getting better.  I loved the first one and this one is no different.  I know that Cassie and Dante’s story is next and I can’t wait to read it, but I sure hope that Cynthia is planning on writing more in this riveting world because I want to know what happens with a certain werewolf, Rhett and a the newly made vampire Vaughn as well.

    And the burn continues¿¿fangs sink into flesh¿..control and lust

    And the burn continues……fangs sink into flesh…..control and lust at its ultimate……blood humming in the veins…..explosive and hot!!

    Cynthia Eden’s latest release, “Once Bitten Twice Burned” in her Phoenix Fire Series, sure fanned my flames of paranormal interest and the uncontrollable urge to read and read more. Ryder and Sabine turned out to be such intense and mesmerizing characters, their story sizzled with passion and chemistry.
    How can the coming together of a Vampire and a Phoenix not entertain us to the fullest? Meeting as experiments in the crazy Wyatt’s laboratory Genesis, Sabine gets thrown into Ryder’s cell as his meal! And amidst the bloodthirsty lust of a vampire and the burning desire of a phoenix in transition, Ryder and Sabine try to beat all odds to survive Wyatt’s super crazy experiments as he tries to build the ultimate fighting soldier.

    Like I said before, Cynthia’s paranormal books were my first introduction to “Paranormal 101’. I’ve never read an author, whose books narrate a story with such intensity and authority in the words, lust and passion in action, control and power in dominance and have never looked back! What really amazes me to no end is her depth of creativity. Her stories are urban fantasies with the existence of paranormal in our daily lives. Her in depth research and her amazing ability to come with such fascinating fiction is no tall order. I sure would like to get into her brain for one day!

    The “Phoenix Series” should be read in sequence to follow the storyline and characters. Her first book, “Burn For Me” introduces us to Genesis and Richard Wyatt, his subject 13 aka Cain O’Conner and Eve Bradley. I was fascinated with Cain and his character, as much as I was totally snowballed with Wyatt’s crazy experiments and his history.

    With the first two books, it looks like the destruction and Genesis has been controlled, but who knows what more can happen in this crazy world of paranormal as Dante and his Cassandra try to come to grips with each other. Now this is another story for another time.
