Book Review: Phoenix by Elizabeth Richards


The second book in the Black City series (the first being Black City), this is another action- and romance-packed installment in the story of Natalie and Ash. They thought that the preliminary success of their rebellion would carry through without a hitch, but Puritan Rose is determined to shut down the threat to his ‘perfect’ society. With torture, murder, and heartbreak at every turn, Ash and Natalie need to make the right decisions–even if those choices pull them apart. The handsome and flirty leopard-boy Elijah, who is infatuated with Natalie, isn’t helping with the tension between Nat and Ash as they travel across the dangerous, barren Wastelands in search of a secret weapon. 

This story has a twist that you’ll never see coming that will cause you to root for Ash and Nat. Their story isn’t over yet, and I can’t wait to find out the fates of Nat, Ash, Elijah, and the rest of the rebels. 12 & up.
