Annie Anderson has literally brought me to my knees with this out of bounds paranormal story, which is chock full of love, loss and the fight for survival. The kicker…it’s her debut novel!
This is the story of Aurelia, a woman who has more sass in her step than I’ve seen in a long time, and she literally had me snorting at her witty thoughts and actions. She’s what we would call a “Seer”, with visions she cannot change, and other abilities that are downright freaky amazing!
She’s been in hiding and on the run for centuries (you know, being immortal and all), when she comes face to face with Rhys, her “solider slash protector”, after avoiding him for many years. They had the mother of all falling outs, but now they’re faced with an even greater enemy and have no other choice but to join forces.
Lies and truths are revealed, and the battle for personal freedom is at stake, but can they work together and get past the hurt and heartache? I love these two so much, not to mention Aurelia’s BFF Evan, who is the epitome of awesome. Just don’t dare get on her bad side, seeing how she could literally rip you limb for limb. No biggie, right? Brilliant story, and I’m in need of the second book like yesterday!

I am honestly struggling to put into words how much I loved this book. I absolutely adore when I’m transported to an author’s world and before I know it I’m reading the last sentence with hardly a phrase or paragraph highlighted.

Annie Anderson is definitely a rising star in the PNR genre. This book had it all: backstory, lore (complete with glossary), kick-ass main characters, action, intrigue, sexual chemistry/tension, amazing secondary characters and suspense to name but a few. I also found the way the narrative was written to be a refreshing change and kept me snort/giggling as I read it.

Book One follows the story of Aurelia Constantine who may look human but is actually a Phoenix. Yup, you read that correctly – a Phoenix! Now you can understand why I got the chills. If that wasn’t awesome enough, Aurelia is also a Seer and as such is cursed to endure visions which she cannot change.

On the run for over a century Aurelia must join forces with Rhys Stevens, her Soldier, to fight an enemy from the past who threatens to destroy everything they hold dear including their chance at a HEA.

Can Aurelia put aside the pain and hatred she feels for Rhys and the decisions he made so long ago? As Rhys simply states:

“And I loved you even when you hated me.”

Well, you’ll have to read it to find out but you won’t regret one minute of it.

Get ready to enter the world of Phoenixes, Seers, Oracles, and Wraiths. Aurelia Constantine is a Seer who has escaped her people. Plagued by visions of death and a devastating event from her past, Aurelia locks herself away from the world. The only connection she has to the past and her life as a Phoenix is her best friend, Evan - a Wraith, and her Soldier, Rhys, who watches from a distance.
Rhys is a Soldier, Aurelia's Soldier. He's also the cause of the single most heartbreaking and traumatic event in Aurelia's life. And he just so happens to be bound to her. How can Rhys protect and guard Aurelia when she hates him and refuses to have any contact with him?
Aurelia may be broken and haunted by her visions but she is powerful, brave, and fierce. It was refreshing to see such a strong female lead. I enjoyed watching her grow and change throughout the story.
I completely fell in love with Rhys. He is intense and loyal; a sexy warrior. The dual pov illustrated the pain and anguish that he had been suffering without Aurelia and the guilt over his part in her loss. Rhys is a powerful soldier set on protecting Aurelia at any cost, regardless of her feelings about him.
The relationship between Aurelia and Rhys was always evolving. I loved watching them move from enemies, the allies, to more. They were intense and passionate. Even after all they had been through they were able to come together, but are their growing feelings enough to withstand their history? Will they be strong enough to make it through what's to come?
It's been awhile since I've read a paranormal romance. I don't read them all that often but I do enjoy them; this one, I LOVED! I didn't feel like Anderson was giving me a history lesson on the world she created.

I enjoyed this debut novel by Annie Anderson. She emerges us into a supernatural world that is exciting, full of angst, yet hopeful.

This story follows Aurelia (Ari) Constantine, who has been running from her biggest enemy since the 1800s. She has spent her years trying to stay untraceable, enjoying her one true passion. Art. Unfortunately her past has not only caused her to suffer those she loves but it has bound her to a man that she hates.

Rhys Stevens has loved Ari for as long as he can remember. He had to step back away from her and watch her from a distance. Until one very controlling, very powerful Phoenix does everything in her power to bind their life together. Without giving anything away, she's out for blood for a very specific reason.

I absolutely loved Ari. She's strong, witty and takes zero crap. One one hand, her abilities make her "hotheaded", yet she can also be imperturbable.

"Can we discuss this sh*t another time? Say when are aren't in a serious time crunch of impending death? Because I gotta say, this 'We're Gonne Die' bullsh*t is getting old."

Rhys. Poor Rhys. In love with someone for so long and having to suffer her hatred. You can't help but root for him. He does everything in his power to protect Ari.

I also enjoyed Eden. She's a princess firecracker. I might have made that up but it works for her. She's tiny, yet powerful. She's loyal to both Rhys and Ari. She's hot and cold and her banter with Ari is awesome.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to see what is in store for the rest of the "clan."
