Ashes of the Phoenix, Jess Haines
Genre: Sci-fi and Fantasy
I’ve enjoyed a few of Jess’ novels so I know I like her writing style, so was pleased to see a new book out.
I didn’t realise it was so short, just 109 pages, and it feels like a novella prequel type read, where author sets out what’s to come.
We’ve vampires (air, water, fire,earth, the good, the bad and the ugly – every version you can imagine, and weres’ of all types, a few ghosts, zombies ( though I avoid them) but I can only rememeber reading one novel set around a phoenix. Seen them as secondary characters before but here Lyra is the lead, and she’s also the phoenix. This is the tale of how she became that way.
Its a fun read, kind of plot light, its really just an intro to characters we’ll hopefully meet later. I can’t find anything for definite but it feels like the opening to a sereis and I do hope I’m right.
Stars: four, a good intro to a new world.
