    THE PHOENIX TRANSFORMED is an exciting sword and sorcery epic

    Once Harrier Gillain and Tiercel Rolfort thought they would spend their entire lives in Armerthalieh, but that was prior to the latter receiving the power of high magic and visions of the Dark returning. Harrier had doubts about his best friend's sanity, but not since their trek into the Elven lands where they learn that Tiercel was chosen by the Light to fight the Dark. Harrier leaves the lands of the elves a Knight-Mage.

    Wildmage Bisochim believes the Dark must enter the world to bring balance. Through experiments, he creates the body of a woman imprisons the dark demon Aharin, released from the dimensional prison where her fellow demons reside. Her goal is to find a mage and create a new race of demons and release her fellow demons where she was imprisoned. Bisoschim used the trust of the Isvaieni trines of the Isva desert to kill the people in the border cities because he believed falsely they have given themselves over to the Dark thus creating the Unbalance. Once he realized he was manipulated by Aharin, he repents and does all he can to save the tribes with the help of Harrier and Tiercel. They travel the land seeking the demon in order to prove to the armies that demons walks the earth again. Aharin sends her walking dead Isvaieni, goblins and other magical beasts to destroy the Isvaieni .Harrier and Tiercel use their power to try and stop her and prevent the dark from coming bacl.

    THE PHOENIX TRANSFORMED is an exciting sword and sorcery epic which will remind the audience of the Jews in Exodus as the Isvaieni tribes roam the desert hoping to find the way home by defeating the Dark. Harrier and Tierce are great characters and buddies who have matured considerably since THE PHOENIX UNCHAINED and THE PHOENIX ENDANGERED; each understands they may die for the better good. Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory provide adult and teen readers a strong epic fantasy. That is enthralling and a joy to read.

    Yet Another Hit for the Lackey and Mallory Team

    As a long time fan of the Lackey and Mallory team, I found the last book and in particular this Enduring Flame Series to be their best yet. The friendship and interactions of the protagonists are endearing. They did not seek nor ask for the "magik" to enter their normal lives, catapalting them into the roles of saving mankind from the "darkness". The vile antagonist with her dirty bag of darkness beasts and tricks is truly frightening. The descriptions of the plot environment, characters and actions are vivid and riveting. The "wild magik" had me entraced from the start. I felt as if I were living with the characters! Bravo and thanks for many entertaining evenings.

    Great stor

    One of th best fantasy books i have ever read. You feel like you r walking every step of th way wth th characters. I thought i would never read a book as good as "When Darknesss Falls" th last of th first trilogy in this world but this was incredible. I hav already read it three or four times already since I bought it and though Mercedes has been my one if my favorite authors for years she n James outdid themselves on this one. Kudos to you both

    Slow Read

    This book dragged on and on in the middle.. It made it very hard for me to stay interested. I ended up putting it down and then went back and finished it a few months later. I mean come on! They're in that desert caravan forever!

    It was....ok

    Its one of those books you have to read if you've read the first two books. Overall it was a little disappointing. It wasn't quite as good as the first two, but it was a nice end to the series....if a little lacking. There was a noticeable change in the writing style from the first two. Some parts it almost seemed as if the writers were getting tired of writing the book and tried to hurry it along.

    A Good Read

    This was an enjoyable story, but overall I found it less appealing the Obsidian Trilogy books (also by Mercedes Lackey). I found the ending to be unexpected and very satisfying.

    Okay

    This would have been much better if the entire series had been condensed into one book instead of three. The series, especially the final book read more like a short story GREATLY expanded than a true trilogy. I had a very difficult time staying interested in this series.
