Overview

Elora Rae Gannon believes her life is over. On her sixteenth birthday, she receives news that she is a mythical monster of hellish proportions and if that’s not bad enough, she receives this information in the form of a letter from her dead mother who also informs her that she must become part of an elite secret society of others like herself or die. Sucky birthday, huh? And just when she thinks she’s got it all figured out, her new-found family in the Elite forces her to break ties with her human BFF shortly before her BFF just up and vanishes. With her world in utter upheaval, Elora makes the move to a new school—Marlind Prep, with full intentions of finding out exactly what is going on behind the scenes and why her best friend has vanished- all while trying to figure out how to successfully make out with her boyfriend without sucking the very life out of him!

This book annoyed me. I didn't really like the main character that much, I think her best friend's side part was the best part of the book.

This story takes you on an inside look to what it means to become one of the elite. For everything you gain, you have to sacrifice something. The main character is caught between being one of the elite and losing her lifelong friend, and she has no say in the matter.  There were a couple of things that bothered me, though. Like how she and her adviser become so close so fast. Or just how naive she was at times. It was a very enjoyable read, and I can't wait to continue the story.

I hadd an amazing time reading phoenix. It has been one of my favorite books eever. I love this trilology! I have read pheoenix and "Ruhk's Rising". I am very into these books and im very excited for the third one coming out soon. Its romance, mystery, fantasy and many others put together. My say is this is a great triology an i encourage you to read it. Personaly i read it on my Nook. But thats just how i read it.

I finished reading this book just yesterday so I might need a bit more time to think on it. But here´s my first thoughts about it! The book was pretty easy to read and actually it did not take long to read the whole thing. I really like the idea in the story about the Phoenixes and where they come from. And what being one actually means.. I had varying feelings about the book and they kept changing. At times there were some things that annoyed me a little, which was the teen character and the language, at times felt a little too adolescent for my taste. What I like in this book that there is more to the Phoenixes than that there just are these people that aren´t completely human. But it has an explanation and they have this society that definitely has some eerie qualities to it! And they don´t just seem like that, they actually are.   I got quite excited right in the beginning about the whole thing and ended up liking the book. I think it has potential to be amazing, so I think I have yet another series to continue with!

"Melissa Starr's writing is like a mystical Phoenix – beautiful, elegant and sometimes downright scary! You can't go wrong with any book this up-and-comer releases into this strange world of ours! I highly recommend anything Starr writes!” ~Ty Schwamberger, critically-acclaimed author of The Fields, Deep Dark Woods and DININ’.
