After being contacted by someone who calls himself ‘The Benefactor’, Andrew and his friends are left with two choices, Work for him to rid the country of people who do wrong, or go to prison for conspiracy. Feeling they have no choice Andrew and his friends choose to work for the man and become assassins, wouldn’t we all come to that decision?!
Okay so this is a rather strange story and I’m not 100% sure if it’s a dream, written tongue in cheek or a genuine conspiracy theory thriller, either way it was pretty interesting, if a little far fetched and unbelievable! This group of young people were fairly easily swayed into randomly killing people on the say so of the benefactor, sometimes quite gruesomely, just to save themselves from being sent to jail, and surprisingly they were good at it even though they hadn’t been trained.
The ending leaves the reader in no doubt there is a next book, but I was confused and felt a little giddy by this point wondering what on earth I had actually been reading for the last five hours!
Andrew Hess has produced a well written story that gave me lots to ponder on, the plot was intricate and thought out and is a great read for lovers of the genre …. What is the genre??

But the Benefactor isn't what he seems.
I really enjoyed the story as a whole. The idea that the government would hire people to carry “justice” to the people is one that I can believe, and that makes this story all the more terrifying. Drew, Mike, and Lilly are rounded characters that grow with each new mission, though not always for the better. We can identify with them, and that endears them to us. On the other hand, the Benefactor is mysterious, powerful and knows exactly what to do to get his way. He exudes deception, and, like the characters, we are hesitant to trust him. The different settings were well-described, letting us know exactly where these events were taking place, and giving us a better view of the picture as a whole. Dialogue was helpful to the story, and the plot seemed to move of its own accord.
That being said, no story is perfect. I found a lot of errors while reading, some of which took away from the action. The good news is that I've been told that the errors have been fixed, and the version I read was an early copy.
When you read it, you’re not sure if it was all a dream or if he was really in a hospital room and given something to put him to sleep. Regardless, You feel like your right there in his dream with him. This book has a’lot of suspense and mystery. It keeps you on the edge of your seat through out the book.
Andrew Hess did a great job at describing every scene and twist of events in an amazing way. As i read i could picture the events in my head which made it so real. I read this book in three days. I have to say it is a must read for all.
Without giving the story away, here is a bullet list of why I liked The Phoenix Blade Project Justice:
---The Prologue hooks the reader immediately
---Characters are genuine and stay true to their beliefs
---Relationships and friendships are believable
---Great feeling of suspense and drama
---Conspiracy/Thriller with a touch of romance---what's not to love!
---Killings can be a bit brutal, yet Mr. Hess gives the story 'Bond-like' justice
---The Epilogue sets the reader up for Book Two!
Can't wait for the next installment to come out!
