"Scanning the maddening scene around her, Trisha sighed under her breath, 'So it has come to pass... Hell is delivered to Heaven’s heights. Look and see! I am Death, Destruction my lover! Today I set the universe ablaze. Phoenix will burn, and the gods will bow low to the Children of Damnation!'"
Phoenix... Across the globe, legends of old tell of a majestic, beautiful bird known from antiquity, its age measured in centuries and beyond...a symbol of peace and justice, dying in flames only to be reborn anew from its charred remains. And so it is with this most ancient of civilizations that existed in what seemed eternal peace, breached by rebellion, its innocence smoldering midst the ashes of destruction of all held dear. Children from two realms band together, knowing that the past must perish like the Phoenix, and they the ones to make it burn as they struggle together against the most evil of foes - the oldest one among all of Lowenah’s children - and his hordes of followers. If they find success, the Phoenix will rise again, stronger and more resolute...determined to destroy all that is evil and build anew an existence where love, freedom and peace reign, not only for them, but for those who rest in the Field of the Minds and those yet to be born.
"The Chronicles of Heaven’s War” saga continues to unfold with this, Book II, “Burning Phoenix”... Come with Trisha as she leads courageous men and women of the Children's Empire into a 'cauldron of Hell', not knowing the outcome, but all determined to stand to the last person for love, freedom, and all things good...and honor Lowenah, the One whose heart is tied in to their success or failure...along with all that exists. Ride with them as they charge the line, fierce and unyielding, unwavering in their quest to destroy all who are evil and return peace, their hope that Phoenix will rise once more...

About the Author
From the editor... Why write “The Chronicles of Heaven’s War”? People through the ages have struggled to survive wars, famines, violence, racial divisions, slavery, evil rulers...the list goes on and on. Why? For every generation of men and women, no matter where on this planet, people have wondered and dreamed of peace and a decent life, talked about it, written about it, hoped for it. Who is behind the scenes causing all of this misery? Is there anyone fighting to stop them? And is there any hope for a better life to be had? In 2002, Ava started writing the Chronicles. I know because I was there. At the outset of Book I, the dedication reads, ‘This book is dedicated to the silent sentinels who have sacrificed everything for us, the unknowing and uncaring, so that we may have a hope of a better future. Without their assistance and protection, I doubt any freedom would still exist for mankind to enjoy.’ Now, as of 2018, there are five books, all a labor of love for us both. There has only been Ava writing the Chronicles with me as the editor/proof reader, also bringing these out as ebooks and the first two books in print. The two of us have spent countless hours for years reading these books together, making adjustments and changes. We have no formal training or experience...just a desire to share this with all of you. And it continues, for there are three more books Ava has written, still the Chronicles, entitled, “Cry of the Eagle Spirits”. We hope to bring the first of these to you soon. Please read what follows about Ava... Thank you. About the author... It is a customary thing to write a short soliloquy of rhapsodic prose regarding an author of words who has put pen to paper and written down by a hand not self-made and from a brain not understood, a tale of suspense or intrigue that the reader finds titillating to his or her senses. Credit is then taken by the author for the seemingly random charges of chemical and electrical energy that make those thought processes possible and that have then been woven into a tapestry of verbal music that plays upon the hearts and minds of those who open their eyes to see into the world of the author's mind. Ava is no such author. "Take the tools you have been given and share your works with the world of men." This is a motto of one who writes from the heart, one wishing to share the emotion felt, to give the reader pause to see beyond the ordinary into a world that may or may not exist in reality, but most certainly does in the heart and soul of any and all who believe there exists something greater than the frail human body. To dream and help others dream of a world beyond their own, to share the life and love of those who might possibly reside there, to help them see that they do not journey upon the secluded path alone...that is the goal of this author.
