This is the 3rd book in the House Phoenix series and in my opinion the best which is why I gave it 5 stars. I got the 1st in the series Broken Angel as a free ebook and admit wouldn't have bought it as not my usual read, but enjoyed it so I bought the next 3 and have to say all have been good so far, just started the 4th in the series. Would recommend to anyone and they are not pricey only around 0.70p each and well worth it.
The series is about Gabriel Morgan who is kidnapped and forced into street fighting for one of the criminal gangs, who run's one of 5 houses. He is given the name Angel and becomes one of the best fighters, set's up his own house, 'House Phoenix' in the 2nd book. The many characters throughout are interesting and the 3rd book, which this review is for, centers around Jenner and Diego two particulary bad characters who in the end show some of their better traits.
Even though this is not my usual genre I found the books quite entertaining and will definitely be following the series to the end.... (hopefully many more books to come!)
The series just gets better and better. I am now on book four, book three was just a great book, the story lines are the best I have read for a long time. I have read the reviews by other readers and totally agree with everything they say. My favourite character is now Jenner, and has been from book two. It can be gruesome at times but that just adds to brilliant way the characters are evolving, I have given this book five stars but double that amount is nearer the mark. I have nearly finished book four then will read the two shorter books that were released this year and just hope and pray that there is a book five.
A book that involves you from the start to the finish with no let up in the action. I can not recommend this series enough. Almost finished the 4th book and the ideas Vaughn has are both interesting, conceivable, well written and a roller coaster ride. Amazing writer. Enjoy. G...
Again another brilliant read by S.W Vaughn. Couldn't put the book down. I've read the first three books and this book didn't disappoint. Character descriptions allow you to empathise with each character and their very dynamic lifestyles. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and the three books before this. Would highly recommend hence the 5star rating.
It's because of this series i have started to read actively. I absolutely love all the books by Vaughn, she is an absolute genius. The description and the way it has been written is perfect. I couldn't put my phone down to stop reading, on the train, on my way to school, DURING school, i just couldn't stop. Angel's, Shiro's and Jenner's relationship is obviously strengthened through Jenner's ordeal and Mendez has learnt his own lesson and knows what his priorities are. It's an awesome book and an amazing series -i can't stop repeating myself; it needs to be worshipped. Once you think something has just gotten a little better, Vaughn surprises you with a dark and evil twist; you can never get bored. I honestly think that out of the many books i've read, this series is by far the best. This book in particular shows us a different side of Jenner, a weaker but arrogant side of him that never stops until he's satisfied. He didn't want to die because he now knows he's got people who want to protect him. Angel and Shiro opens his grey eyes for him to see a world of friendship and loyalty. Brilliant.
