THIS AND HOW GOOD THIS IS WOW THE WAY THIS WASACK BE STILL, MY HEART THIS IS SO AMAZING.That was like 1% of it, but I thought I d better get on with the review, yeah Okay, I absolutely have to acknowledge the romance in this The action and the rebellion were amazing of course, but the romance Ash and Natalie and Elijahand Giselle, but she appears and disappears quickly Thank God My heart broke so many times for Ash and Natalie There s a giant twist that just changes everything between all of them, and I swear my heart dropped all the way through the Earth and made a beeline for China I justcan t imagine Natalie and Ash are so devoted to each other, every few pages I had to stop and smack a friend on the arm whoever was closest to me They can prove it and squeal It was just so amazing, the way you could clearly see how in love they were It s like a less messed up Romeo and Juliet And Elijah Elijah How could you Like I said, the action was definitely amazing itself What Black City lacked, Phoenix definitely made up for it There was definitely a lotmoving around than in Black City and there was definitely a lotdanger and that s saying something With President Rose a looming threat and both Sentry, Lupines, and citizens looking for them, Ash and Natalie were definitely in a fix And yet, they somehow managed to survive ituntil a giant betrayal I could never have expected Bringing me to another thing There were a lot of betrayals I couldn t imagine, but with their lives on the line, I guess some people forget to be selfless But the first betrayal was a bit predictable The second Well I think I may have died on the spot Phoenix was a book that while, at first was a bit slow, but quickly went uphill after the first few chapters or so It s pacing was brilliant and I absolutely adored it Definitely not experiencing Sequel Syndrome or anything like that, Phoenix definitely surpassed my expectations and definitely beat Black City in the long run Anyone who loved Black City will definitely adore this Just like it s first book though, it s definitely one of those dystopias that the word dystopia perfectly describes When Black City finished with that epic ending I was biting my nails for months waiting for Phoenix to arrive in my hands and it was worth the wait From High school students to full blown action heroes Phoenix is like a whole new level Love, destruction, gore and heartbreak Life has gotten worse in Black City Purian Rose threatens Natalie s life unless Ash votes in favour of Rose s law a law that will send darklings and other dissenters to a deadly concentration camp known as the tenth.I h When Black City finished with that epic ending I was biting my nails for months waiting for Phoenix to arrive in my hands and it was worth the wait From High school students to full blown action heroes Phoenix is like a whole new level Love, destruction, gore and heartbreak Life has gotten worse in Black City Purian Rose threatens Natalie s life unless Ash votes in favour of Rose s law a law that will send darklings and other dissenters to a deadly concentration camp known as the tenth.I haven t felt so emotional reading a book in a long time This book is defiantly not for younger readers This skilfully crafted novel contains some mysticism, mystery, intrigue, sex, epic fight scenes, humour and romance in a neat package that is not just entertaining but challenges your mind and imagination Elizabeth has created word images so vivid that it is almost like watching a movie She takes you for a ride through The United Century States as Ash and Natalie find themselves in a action packed suspenseful events.I was hoping that we would learnabout the world outside Black city and boy do we We meet sexy new characters for example Elijah I won t give much away but I can tell from reading Elizabeth s novels she likes to take risks and those risks pay off tremendously Twists and turns are what Elizabeth s writing is about I find myself always on the edge of my seat You don t know who to trust where to look or what your feeling because her writing takes you on a roller coaster of emotions.The plot is amazing Ash can t bring himself to trade Natalie s life for those millions of Darklings The only way to save everyone is to escape Black City and find the Ora, a powerful weapon that could take down Purian Rose for good I grew a serious hate for Purian rose and Sebastian Elizabeth has a knack for drawing so much emotion from her books that makes the reader feel so passionate about her novels and it s characters Once again Elizabeth has blown me away and as I sit here after reading this book with tears running down my face I ve realised that this book is one of the most heart renching emotional YAs I ve read in a long time I need the third book NOW THE CLIFFHANGER NO HOW DARE YOU Oh my god, okay, despite the annoying characters I liked this book, I must say the storyline is great for a dystopian book I actually bought the first book because of the pretty cover, and yeah, I still have problems with the characters but I loved the world Elizabeth Richards created The writing style she uses to describe the setting is perfect There s a lot of action and violence and that makes the books pretty interesting.Now, the romance is still shi THE CLIFFHANGER NO HOW DARE YOU Oh my god, okay, despite the

Natalie to marry him At the beginning of the book Seriously And Natalie s reaction What the fuck was that, she was 16 years old the day before.In my opinion, that was so unnecessary If you re not a big fan of the romance of the book, that part will probably make you want to stop reading I swear, if there wasn t any cheesy insta love in these books, they would be so MUCH better view spoiler I KNEW GARRICK AND SASHA WERE TAKING NATALIE TO HER MOTHER I was actually screaming when I realized Same with Elijah, when they arrived to their home, I instantly suspected it was a trap, but I knew deep down he was a good little sexy kitten Hell, he was my favorite character, I was so mad hide spoiler Okay now talking about the characters, Natalie is still selfish and annoying and all she talked about was Polly and her sexual attraction to Elijah and Ash but she seemed a little stronger in Phoenix, so good for you Nat Ash was okay in this book, I still can t understand why he loves Natalie so much I mean I don t care about that soulmate shit thingy but he EVEN thought she was cheating on him and he was like Fine by me, I still love you lets bang smh BUT I have to admit that I like him, he s the face of the rebellion and yeah, you go Ash Now, because of the damn cliff hanger, I MUST buy and read Wings I need to know how the story ends and besides, the covers are pretty If you liked Black City s storyline, don t let the romance fool you, you will enjoy this one When Ash can t bring himself to trade Natalie s life for those of millions of Darklings, her fate is sealed Enter Elijah

YOU FUCKING SERIOUS WOW WOW WOW This series has officially done every cliche, stereotypical YA romance move in the book.Bravo Justwow I m actually tempted to read it just to laugh at it Plus, I still want to knowabout the whole Bastet thing But HOLY SHIT Love triangle galore Not to mention, in the copy I read the description from, it says Ash and Natalie were ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED.THEY RE SIXTEEN YEARS OLD THIS IS BULLSHIT Well that was one hell of a ride It sure did remind me of The Hunger Games second book, Catching Fire though What with the love triangle, and the sudden appearance of another character just to drive home some tension between the three characters Did she have to be a vixen named Giselle though Lol I still find the rebellion and the world building vaguely interesting and want to know how they take this villain down On to the next book Disclaimer I am an author friend of Elizabeth Richards, but I wasn t when I first read BLACK CITY and fell in deep, dark, twisted

across the United Sentry States, Ash and Natalie find they must be willing to sacrifice everything in order to have a chance at survival Loyalties will be challenged and lives will be lost Phoenix is an epic blend of action, mystery, and romantic drama a gripping, brutal read I eagerly await the final installment FINAL RATING 4.25 STARS CATCHALL I loved Black City, so I was extremely eager to dive into Phoenix I was nervous, though, too, because of some things in the blurb Despite my hesitation, however, once I picked it up I simply couldn t put it down It was fresh and fast paced, and a wholly satisfying sequel to the first book Everything about it was gorgeous to the point where I really can t have many complaints, and the cast of characters was as sparkling as I expected THE HERO ASH FINAL RATING 4.25 STARS CATCHALL I loved Black City, so I was extremely eager to dive into Phoenix I was nervous, though, too, because of some things in the blurb Despite my hesitation, however, once I picked it up I simply couldn t put it down It was fresh and fast paced, and a wholly satisfying sequel to the first book Everything about it was gorgeous to the point where I really can t have many complaints, and the cast of characters was as sparkling as I expected THE HERO ASHAsh is just as sexy as I remember him in this book, and yet he somehow also becomeslayered He is torn between wanting to do what is right between doing what he really wants to do at times, and it s a very realistic struggle to watch him go through He can be really dense about some things, but he s also smart There s a lot of love in his heart, and he s such a caring person even though he doesn t always know how to show it THE HEROINE NATALIEI have mixed feelings about Natalie, to be honest Part of me really likes her, but the other part of me wants to smack her for being such an idiot I get where her feelings are coming from, but she goes about acting on them in what I think is absolutely the wrong way She has good intentions, but one plan in particular that she enacts is really stupid and just ticked me off A lot THE PLOT Plot wise, I may have preferred Black City a tiny bit , but Phoenix still had an awesome plot Also, the development was better, even if only marginally This isn t a bad things, however, because Black City also boasted wonderful development There wasn t necessarily marked improvement, but it didn t deteriorate either.I like how the rebellion isof a central focus in this one It wasn t fully developed in book one, because it wasabout uncovering evidence and that sort of thing This book hasmeat to it It moves forward a to , and there s waygoing on I also would argue that it becomes muchintense.There sat stake in this book, so everything has bigger strings attached to it There s no simple answer because no matter what Natalie and Ash choose to do, someone loses They cannot have everything even though they might like to, and they re forced to realize that they won t always be able to save everyone.Overall, I think Phoenix had agripping plot than Black City did We seethan enough of a particular villain, and there are new ones who show up There s a death that I definitely did not expect, and though it made me gasp for breath, I do think it really contributed to the plot It made things move forward, and providedmotive as well THE ROMANCE I love this romance, to be honest It s hot and it s passionate, but it can also be very sweet and protective There are numerous misunderstandings that drove me insane, but they did keep me riveted Ash and Natalie s love story is a very unique one, and it only develops further here There are other people in the picture, but the romance her can only ever be about the two of them for me The development was fantastic, and there were some truly heartbreaking scenes THE WRITING Elizabeth is wonderfully talented, and there s real growth clear in the voices of her characters They re still not quite distinct enough from each other for my tastes, but I m definitely starting to understandthe differences between them I like her descriptive sequences but she still struggles a bit in the characters thoughts There are times when Natalie and Ash are monologuing to themselves and I m just kind of like Yeah, no one thinks to themselves like that THE ENDING The ending absolutely murdered me I realize this probably sounds like a very harsh choice of words, but I am actually completely serious I died It should be illegal to end a book this way I literally flipped the pages back and forth over and over again as if that would maketext appear It was a cruel, albeit clever, way to end the book You have no choice but to wantWRAPUP Phoenix was a fabulous sequel with a killer plot, and I m definitely dying to see book three Elizabeth Richards might be a little bit evil, but I am still definitely a fan for life I cannot wait to see how this all ends and what comes next If you liked book one, you and Phoenix will get along just fine If you haven t tried Black City but you don t mind another fun dystopian, give it a shot.FINE.Findof my reviews on Sparkles and Lightning Nah I know it might be the perfect book for the paranormal romantics, but for someone who has been devouring this genre this is plain repetition and nothing else I understand that the book has every element that worked in twilight, hush hush series and every other successful paranormal genre yet for me it was.Nah Let me be honest, this book is not bad but not good as well There is nothing to the book even if it has managed to shelve out three booksgod knows how and whyThe boo Nah I know it might be the perfect book for the paranormal romantics, but for someone who has been devouring this genre this is plain repetition and nothing else I understand that the book has every element that worked in twilight, hush hush series and every other successful paranormal genre yet for me it was.Nah Let me be honest, this book is not bad but not good as well There is nothing to the book even if it has managed to shelve out three booksgod knows how and whyThe book reminded me of Legend series by Marie Lu so much that I actually wanted to go back and read Legend.The story in the sequel is at least better than Black city but yes the romance crap still irks me to the core but then this is a romance novel so I can t exactly complain about the book based on that sole reason While I can still cope with the male lead ash it s the female Natalie that irritates me in the book The girl is a disaster coming from lack of brains or weepy and fragile heroine syndrome Either ways that is not someone that can carry this book very far The second book comes up with a love triangle Bravo For bringing up such a brilliant, stupidest and the lamest trick ever in book writing I am amazed at our self sacrificing, altruistic girl getting attracted to the next guy that comes along after prophesying eternal love throughout the first book and using big bold words like love only to redefine its meaning in the sequel Best part Barely at 15 or 17 years, our leads are getting married Yippieplease excuse me, while I bash my head against a wall Once again let me say that its not you but me The book per say is not that bad, its just that I could not digest it The problem with the book was that it was kind of clich in the romance department and if I may say was totally vomit inducer for me But other than my obvious hatred to teenage romance and marriage, the book actually has a better story line than the first one and the narration technique and the language is simple and good Then again like the first book, the dystopian world crumples because of weak foundation Romance novel fans will definitely swoon over this for obvious reasons Dystopian and paranormal fans on the other hand will die of prolonged puking.Basically the book is equally bad as much as it is good The book died for me because of its predictable story plot and lack of proper background JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL BECAUSE I M ABOUT TO KEYBOARD SMASH THE SHIT OUT OF THIS REVIEW WITH MY FRANTIC FANGIRL FLAILING OVER THE MOST MAGNIFICENT ENDING THAT A SECOND BOOK IN A YA SERIES HAS EVER SEEN NO, REALLY, THIS IS DOUBLE RAINBOW STATUS OMFG I was all prepared to give a coherent review And it was going to start like this If this book had a subtitle, it would read as follows Phoenix A Lesson in the Importance of Communication in Relationships Because that s what a good deal of what th JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL BECAUSE I M ABOUT TO KEYBOARD SMASH THE SHIT OUT OF THIS REVIEW WITH MY FRANTIC FANGIRL FLAILING OVER THE MOST MAGNIFICENT ENDING THAT A SECOND BOOK IN A YA SERIES HAS EVER SEEN NO, REALLY, THIS IS DOUBLE RAINBOW STATUS OMFG I was all prepared to give a coherent review And it was going to start like this If this book had a subtitle, it would read as follows Phoenix A Lesson in the Importance of Communication in Relationships Because that s what a good deal of what this book was A breakdown of communication But it was odd, because on one level, the breakdown was incredibly frustrating, but on the other, it was building some very tense and incredibly exciting anticipation So I wasn t really sure where to draw the line, only that when it was resolved, it was almost a letdown It happened far too fast, and without any real consequences.So then I read on, and I was happily, about 50 pages from the end, reflecting that I was really surprised that this book was NOT suffering from the famous Sopho Slump Because honestly, this book is all action It s action and getting shit done There s a lot of exposition, but it all fits in neatly with the nearly endless action that takes you on a real rollercoaster ride It s refreshing to find a book that s heavy on the action and less on the teenage angst.But I was nearing the end, and I was pretty sure this book was going to be a four star At this point, I knew Black City was the superior book And I thought to myself, I legitimately said out loud, Unless this book pulls off the greatest twist ending in the history of YA, I m giving this a four star rating Then Elijah betrayed them, and it was a nice twist, one I really didn t see coming But then I thought about it, and I wasn t really that surprised, even if I didn t expect it Because face it, Elijah is kind of a douche, even if he s a loveable douche, and he would backstab someone He just would Even Natalie And from that we got a whole new kind of tension between the characters, and I was really excited to bump up the rating half a star, because of this leading to the epic conclusion of the book I was like, YAY, good book.Then I read the last couple of pages.HULK SMASH 111 1 1 11 JESUS CHRIST, NO BODY BETTER LOOK ME STRAIGHT IN THE EYES AND TELL ME THEY SAW THAT THING COMING I MEAN, I KNEW THERE HAD TO BE A GOOD REASON FOR THE EARLIER, NEAR MISS KIDNAPPING, BUT I HONESTLY THOUGHT IT WAS SEBASTIAN TRYING TO GET NASTY WITH NATALIE LIKE HE DID WITH POOR POLLY NO ONE SAW THAT ENDING COMING DON T YOU FUCKING LIE TO ME I WILL HULK SMASH YOU LIKE YOU ARE LOKI YOU DIDN T KNOW HE WAS STILL ALIVE DON T PRETEND LIKE YOU DID.This is the point, I want to make notice of, that I had one of my epic fan girl flailing fits One that looks like a seizure, but really isn t, unless you count freaking out over an amazing book ending a seizure Yeah So Um JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL.This book may have been a little weak on the plot, sacrificing that for action and character development, but there were great improvements made in other places The pace of this book was steady and ripe with tension Purian Rose actually felt like a scary villain this time around, and losses feltemotional The stakes rose, and accordingly, so did the presentation of the book, which was amazing to the very end, and then spectacular Lol, but seriously, did no one else have that creeping fear that Natalie might be pregnant I mean seriously, she had all the signs, she had lots of seemingly unprotected sex, considering they didn t mention birth control, or I missed it several times if they did, and I will never doubt a YA book can go there because of Twilight But regardless, this book was phenomenal and I will judge everyone on this planet harshly if they don t read it FIVE HUNDRED STARS OUT OF FIVE Ash and Natalie are just starting to build a life together when things in the United Sentry States go from bad to worse Ash and Natalie find themselves at the center of turmoil when dictator Purian Rose
