First, it's presented as a standalone, but I don't feel that it is and I wish I'd know that when I first started to read the book. I had a hard time understanding what the heck was the deal with Gareth. This big event from book 1 was hinted at but never fully explained. The Celtic mythology and world creation was also expected to be known and understood prior to reading the book. After I put this on down and bought book 1, everything made more sense and I was able to enjoy Gareth's morose character.
While I adored Ashley's spirit, again almost nothing was explained about her phoenix background (and this time there were no answers in book one). All you get is that she has to basically have someone be her boy toy for the entire week of her triennial paranormal ovulation cycle or else a male phoenix can appear from god knows where, rape her repeatedly, and if she gets pregnant she gets thrown into his harem. And this is half of the book's premise. (For the record I'd also like to read about a female phoenix that is NOT named Ashley or Ashleigh. This is a species not often written about but every time they are, the characters have the exact same name.)
If you remove all of the paranormal elements and worldbuilding, I did like the dialogue between characters a lot. The book was more exciting towards the end than in the beginning.
My Recommendation: Give it a try if you enjoy Celtic mythology and complex worldbuilding, but you really need to read The Immortal's Redemption first.
