| Review | Phoenix Fire | S. D. Grimm

Today I'm bringing you a different sort of review!

While these are still my thoughts and opinions that have in no way been influenced by the free ebook, this post is part of a Blog Tour organised by Entangled Teen who I thank for this copy ;) 

Go ahead and find more about this book!
After spending her life in foster care, Ava has finally found home. But all it takes is a chance encounter with hot nerd Wyatt Wilcox for it to unravel.

Now, things are starting to change. First, the flashes of memories slowly creeping in. Memories of other lives, lives that Wyatt is somehow in. Then, the healing. Any cut? Gone.

But when Cade and Nick show up, claiming to be her brothers, things get even weirder. They tell her she’s a Phoenix, sent to protect the world from monsters—monsters she never knew existed. It’s a little hard to accept. Especially when they tell her she has to end the life of a Phoenix turned rogue, or Cade will die.

With Wyatt’s increasingly suspicious behavior, Ava’s determined to figure out what he’s hiding. Unless she can discover Wyatt’s secret in time and complete her Phoenix training, she’ll lose the life, love, and family she never thought she could have.


You probably know by now that I like S. D. Grimms stories. I think I’m only missing one of her books, which hasn’t really caught my attention to be honest. Point being, I like her stories and after a moment of being attracted to the cover (look at it!!!) I noticed the name of the author and had to request and ARC.

Phoenix Fire follows the story of four teens destined to die and be reborn until they can fulfil their purpose, to defeat the all-powerful Dark Phoenix.

Phoenix are not so common on the YA world, so even though the premises of the story might not be the most creative one the supernatural creature in which it will be based is really interesting. How much do you know about phoenixes other than they die to be reborn again?

S. D. Grimm manages to create an intricate world within the spam of a few pages, flinging her net of intricate characters and spinning it with multiple points of view. You can’t help but to get hooked to Ava and Cade and all the other amazing characters.

Despite the insta-love that correlates with an intriguing back-story, so I can’t really be mad about it, all relationships deepened, friendship and brotherhood and love go beyond where they start allowing the reader to experience it all right along the characters.

The story is well-paced, turning away from frivolous plots and focusing on those that matter the most. Shifting between memories and present, the reader is given an expand view of what happened so the present can unfold.

With relatable characters and a dramatic intrigue, Phoenix Fire brings its readers a twist on one of the underdogs of Young-Adult Fantasy, full with romance, fantasy and epic battles this novel will grip you so fiercely that you won’t be able to put it down.

Rating: 4,5 stars.
