Review

"Phoenix is the House of Night series meets the movie Skulls with a Egyptian Mythology to round it out as a pretty awesome book.You find yourself wondering if being on the bad side is as bad as Elora & the others make it sound. Starr does an awesome job in writing a clean story that appeals to YA & adults alike.The Elite appear to be bad, but the group seems oh so tempting to be a part of. They're everything that you want to be & more but it all comes with a very high price. Can't wait for the sequel. This is going to be a great series. I recommend this one for 13 years+." - Amy's Book World
"Melissa Starr's writing is beautiful, elegant and sometimes downright scary! You can't go wrong with any book this up-and-comer releases! I highly recommend anything Starr writes!" -Ty Schwamberger, critically-acclaimed author of The Fields, Deep Dark Woods and DININ'.

Phoenix is the House of Night series meets the movie Skulls with a Egyptian Mythology to round it out as a pretty awesome book. The author Ms. Starr takes you on a fantasy/mystery with the characters to discover what will happen. You find yourself wondering at times if being on the bad side is as bad as Elora and others make it sound. She does awesome job in writing a clean story that still appeals to older YA and Adults alike. Her writing is easy to follow yet complex in it's own way. The story mainly follows Elora, a young girl who just turned 16 and is being raised by her widowed father. She belives her life to be perfect as it is even if it seems mundane. She has everything she wants, her BFF Chloe and her somewhat cool dad sam. As Elora points out 16 seems to be a special age because that is when everything seems to happen. For her this fact is also true. Her life changes the moment she reads a letter her now deceased mother left her. In it it states that she is speacial, she is a Phoenix Elite, like her mother was. This is a special group of individuals who seem to be the best looking and always have jobs or positions of higher power. Elora sees this as the worst news possible. She has always hated the Phoenixes, and she wants nothing to do with them. Her Best Friend now slowly separates herself from Elora. Part of it I believe is jealousy but another part I believe is that Chloe feels that maybe she won't fit into her new life. Compared to Elora and the other Phoenixes, Chloe feels she is a Plain Jane. The only plus to this change is that Elora has a new boyfriend, hottie and fellow Phoenix Ezra. As her world seems to crumble around her, she finds herself getting closer to Ezra. Things are put on hold when Chloe decides to poke around in the Phoenix business and finds herself missing.Read more ›

I received a complimentary copy of Phoenix for read2review, this does not effect my honest review...

Phoenix follows the story of highschool student Elora and her friends. On Elora's 16th birthday she receives a letter from her mother who had died years before, but had left the letter for Elora. The letter explained that Elora was different, that she was part of the elusive group the Phoenix. Those that belong to the group tended to be extremely beautiful, and privileged. Elora initially did not want anything to do with the group, and this was seconded by her friend Chloe's dire warnings. Chloe had been researching the Phoenix Elite for three years and warned Elora that they were dangerous. But Elora had no choice and she was pressured into taking the Oath to become part of the group, it was either take the Oath or die. Elora after joining the Elite group, was soon given all the background info regarding her now pseudo family, and basically parts caused her great horror. She was told that she was more than human, that her heritage stemmed back to Egypt and was similar to the Phoenix in mythology; and in being so, each year, the members of the Phoenix had to take a life in order to live another year! That was the worst of being apart of the elusive group, the best so far was her new boyfriend who was also a Phoenix, Ezra...soon Chole, Elora's best friend disappears and even though she is in danger herself, Elora will stop at nothing to find her.

Phoenix was a fresh, unique tale, original with the intriguing storyline. I enjoyed discovering the secrets of the Phoenix, and I was just as horrified in learning the darkest secret, the need for taking a life! I was caught up in the adventure of the story,and remained tense throughout the search for Chloe! Each character had a quality that stood out, making them all an intricate part of the storyline...The story was well written, flowed and I look forward to the next in this series!

Wow! Where do I start? I loved this book.

It starts with the history of the Phoenix. That part was not my favorite, because there were so many names and I thought I'm never going to be able to keep them straight. I realized later why that part was necessary.

Then the story of Elora starts. I loved her, Chloe and Ezra. Someone said in a review that this had a House of Night feel to it. I didn't realize it when I was reading it, but it does. Not that it is a copy of that....far from it. It was a great story. The author did an awesome job. I'm in awe!

I had a hard time putting this book down. It was so good and my head is still wrapped up in the book. I have already added the next book to my wish list, because I really want to know what happens next. I highly recommend this book.

I picked this book up during a promotional sale and yeah I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it. This review will have some minor spoilers so you've been warned.

To start the story pacing is entirely too fast right from the very beginning and it oddly jumps from days to months and is rather confusing trying to keep track of how much time has passed. The fast pace of the book is really unnecessary as there is so much information that just isn't explored at all. Our main character Elora comes to find out she is a Phoenix on her 16th birthday but other then a letter from her dead mother and a very quick oath she must take there is absolutely nothing added to that.at.all!! She doesn't even seem to freak out in the least that she is growing wings and has a hole hollowing itself in her back. Ya know cause that's just all part of growing up?? Not to mention if I suddenly started growing wings I'd be zooming all over the neighborhood pretending I'm superman or something not just totally ignoring them all together.

Lets not skip past the part the really annoying me in that these 'phoenixes' are nothing more then vampires with wings and the author herself uses the term vampires to describe them more than once. Sorry but if you're going to write about vampires, just write about vampires and not try to pass it off as something else. The writing in this book is just not very good and there are a number of grammar and spelling errors through out which honestly just pulled me right out of the story. The tone of the book isn't very consistent and the way Elora describes herself is just very odd and out of character for a teen girl. For example there are a few instances of her describing her breasts and how large they are as if she suddenly became a 15 year old horny boy. It was just odd.
