I'm so glad to be a part of the Pheonix Rising Blog Tour!! And check out the cover! *-* So pretty!

Book Blurb:

and killing the 8 people inside.
What Maggie learns will change her life.
She is the last of a race of creatures known as "The Phoenix", a race of supernatural beings with the ability to wield and control fire.
And she will need that power now...
Revenants- walking, living, skeletal creatures who have waged a war against an unseen, parallel world known simply as The Realm- need Maggie's blood to bring them to a full power...a power that will give them an unbeatable edge and offer the deciding weapon in this war.
Maggie is not alone as she learns not only what she really is, but what it is her destiny to become...



Review:
"Don’t get me wrong, I love school. What sixteen-year old isn't thrilled to rise before the sun to begin a day of pursuits in higher education? Of course there are some who frown upon the waking—the guys, the girls, kids who are breathing…"


First let me just say - WOW!!
This is Lisa Morgan's first book and its just such an amazing one! This one had me in the first few pages itself. Its witty, well thought out and well has my favorite two things - Sarcasm and Fantasy! ;)
Pheonix Rising centers around Maggie who is in for the shock of her life. She is not who she thought she was. Everyone she knows, all that she knows the world to be is going to be thrown out of the window. She has to embrace the new world she comes to know exists and what she is...
This was the first book that I read based on the Pheonix and I must say it blew my mind. The characters are just so believable and you can see them grow. I loved her writing style. The words seemed to flow effortlessly and kept me up till wee hours reading... Don't get me wrong I love my sleep but this book was just that good!
I only wish I could read the book Liam recorded - A Record of the days of The Realm... *Hint Hint*

If you like fantasy, great characters, and good writing.. Just get this book! I for one can't wait to read the next book! :D
