-Dr. Beth Lynne, Editor

"Anne Boleyn is unarguably one of history's most fascinating and controversial women. Temptress, opportunist, witch, adulteress, or martyr? Generations after her death, we're still intrigued by her rise and fall. In Phoenix Rising, Hunter Jones transforms the legend into flesh and blood. You don't want to miss this clever and marvelously entertaining account of Anne Boleyn's last hour."
-OCMD, Amazon Vine Reviewer
~~~
"Thought provoking, esoteric and heart wrenching." - 
-R.J.Askew, blogger, reviewer, author and journalist.

This is an outstanding encapsulated history to use as an introduction for those who know nothing of the Tudors or for people like me who can never read enough about Henry and his famous family. From the first magical chapter depicting the Astrologist’s interpretation of the Star Chart to Anne Boleyn’s regal end, from the clever division of chapters into astrological houses to the amazing depictions of the characters, this extraordinary book is destined to remain a favorite. Hunter S. Jones (whose books are always exceptional) has created a gathering of events and people caught in the correct time and place for history to be made. Perhaps it was written in the stars…

I expected Phoenix Rising to be another Tudor story of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII, much like Phillipa Gregory and so many other versions of the story. When I first read Phoenix Rising, my initial reaction was...it is too short, but then I realized the story is based on Anne Boleyn's last hour, not an entire day. There was something about it that made me re-read it a few days later. After reading the story for the second time, I believe I understand what Ms. Jones has done. By using an complicated form of Cherokee storytelling, one in which the narrator, the audience and the characters become part of the story, she has taken a very English story and given it a very American, very original slant. Our first clue is that the story begins in Chattanooga, Tennessee which was part of the Cherokee Nation until the 1800s.

Not only is this a creative take on a love affair which changed history, I found the usage of the astrological houses, colors and motifs to be well placed and subtle. The addition of medicine and magic was fascinating. The story is spell binding. My only complaint is that I now I want to know more about the author's view of Jane Seymour. My own work in psychology makes me believe this Jane is probably much closer to the real Jane Seymour than we have been lead to believe. Well done Hunter Jones. I look forward to seeing what you conjure up for your next story.

When I first saw this book on The Readers Hollow, I knew I had to read it. (Thanks to Erin from Readers Hollow for giving me a chance to review this book) ever since 4th grade I've had a slight obsession with Henry VIII and his wives, especially Anne Boleyn, so I was excited to read Rising Phoenix. I started this book on my flight and finished it about two hours later, so this book is a nice quick read.

I really enjoyed Rising Phoenix, even thought I've read a lot of historical fiction based on Anne Bolyen, I'd never really seen a book quite like this one. Most books on Anne Bolyen don't normally focus on her execution. After all it is a very difficult topic, however, I think this book handled it rather well. The story is told through many points of view including, King Henry VIII, Princess Mary, Jane Seymour, Elizabeth Howard Boleyn (Anne's mother) the executioner, and Anne Bolyen herself. I enjoyed reading from all the point of views, I think it helped build a solid story and it was interesting to see other people's views on Anne's execution. I love how Hunter Jones weaved a little magic into this tale, I especially enjoyed the omens the author hid in the story.

Most books, documentaries and TV shows often portray Jane as an innocent, vitreouse women the complete opposite of how Anne Bolyen is portrayed. She is normally shown as a scheming, selfless, social climber, but one has to wonder whether the roles where actually reversed in some fashion. After all I have to believe that Anne Bolyen really loved Henry and as the book and history states the case brought before Anne Bolyen was deeply flawed and only one man accused of adultery with the queen confessed, but even that was influenced by torture.

At first I didn't think I could enjoy this book. It takes place on the day of Anne's execution and I wondered how the author was going to stretch one day in to a novel. But as I read on I found it facinating (although maybe not 100% historically accurate, it is a novel afterall) and couldn't put it down. The author writes the story from the points of view of those who knew Anne and imagines what they were thinking and doing on that fateful day. A very good read.

I read Phoenix Rising: A novel of Anne Boleyn in an afternoon, and was pleasantly surprised at how author Hunter Jones wove together so many variables in her tale of Anne Boleyn's last hour.
This novella is recounted by a female descendant of King Henry's personal physician, who inherits a mysterious star map and thusly shares information with readers.
Albeit in Tennessee, the narrator takes readers back to Tudor, England, and enlightens us on innermost happenings of the 16th century, especially those surrounding King Henry. Pay attention to the color motifs throughout the novella that correspond with astrological events during this historical reign, and notice clever allusion to elements, fire, water, wind, and earth.
For anyone with interest in the second wife of Henry VIII and other players during that long ago time. the descendant of King Henry's Welsh physician, offers vital and interesting information.
