Phoenix Rising by Lisa C. Morgan

Maggie has lived the last ten years with a woman who isn't her mother and carrying the label "Daughter of John Henning", a man sentenced to live out his days at Sunnyview Psychiatric Hospital after his conviction of fire bombing a church... and killing the 8 people inside.

What Maggie learns will change her life.
She is the last of a race of creatures known as "The Phoenix", a race of supernatural beings with the ability to wield and control fire.

And she will need that power now...

Revenants- walking, living, skeletal creatures who have waged a war against an unseen, parallel world known simply as The Realm- need Maggie's blood to bring them to a full power...a power that will give them an unbeatable edge and offer the deciding weapon in this war.

Maggie is not alone as she learns not only what she really is, but what it is her destiny to become...

My Review
Ok, I picked this book up from the recommendations of some fellow bloggers and a few my fave authors. I have had it sitting on my kindle for a while now and with all the buzz going around about the second book, I figured it's time to dive in. And I'm glad I did! Although, I liked Maggie, it was the secondary characters that kept me reading on. Especially Luc! He's snarky, sexy and damaged...just what I look for in a book boyfriend. The book was well written and had a natural flow. I did find myself breaking down a time or two after some tragic events happened. I'm also very intrigued by Davis. He shows up late in the story, but I can't wait to see what Morgan has in store for him. If you like paranormal YA you'll like this book! It has a little for everybody....witches, vampires, fae and werewolves. The ending? Well, here I was reading along, enjoying the story and boom, it's over! What?!?!?!? What a cliff hanger. I can't wait to read the next book, Phoenix Burning!

Great Book!
