    I received this book to give an honest review. I loved the way

    I received this book to give an honest review.

    I loved the way this story was told, you have Aidan who has a secret! She is a phoenix who unknown to her is being hunted. She has decided to live life as a human and have friends and ends up in a relationship with Trent a fireman! How ironic right? Aidan is a phoenix who can rise from the ashes and Trent fights fires. Trent is the adorable book boyfriend so kind, caring, thinks of others, willing to help those going through a hard time even if he doesn't truly know them. 
    Aidan normally doesn't let anyone get close to her but she befriends Chris and Phoebe who have an awesome brother and sister relationship. Not only does she allow Chris and Phoebe to get close she also allows Trent to become close and ends up knowing more about her than anyone before.  There is romance, mystery and  mythology which I love! The phoenix is one of those mystical creatures I love to read about, there is a bit of sadness but hope towards the end. Aidan is such a strong character with what is thrown her way that her selfless act is something I didn't even think about her doing. 
    This story keep me wanting to read more to find out what else could happen, will this serial killer be caught or would it be too late? What will happen with Aidan and Trent? I love this authors writing style and hope to read more from her in the future.

    I received this book free in return of an honest review. The Go

    I received this book free in return of an honest review.

    The Good...
    This was quite possibly Angela Wallace's best book yet. I loved the murder mystery parts. Her use of
    details concerning how an investigation proceeds, as well as what happens in a fire department,
    showed a mastery of balance between the amount of research done and what actually gets used in the
    story.

    I also enjoyed the way she treated the characters' feelings regarding Chris's illness. It was an honest
    view of different people's reaction to a loved one living with stage four cancer. Many scenes brought me
    to tears, and, as I've said in other reviews, that is difficult to do. Not only did she treat each character with
    dignity and fashion them into believable people, she gave us an ending full of surprises and unexpected
    twists that is very satisfying.

    The Not-so-good...
    While the characters and situations were as believable as any writer can create, I was a bit disappointed
    that the mystery almost completely disappears near the middle of the book. I would have liked more
    tension brought out with reminders that there is a serial killer on the loose throughout the entire story,
    instead of just at the beginning and near the end.

    The book meandered into romance genre territory more than I prefer about one-third of the way into the
    story. However, by the two-thirds mark, the mystery was back in full swing and continued to rivet me
    through the rest of the pages.

    The Overall...
    I think Phoenix Feather would appeal to mystery lovers and romance readers alike and I would highly
    recommend it.
