Review for Phoenix Always by Jae Dawn

Author: Jae Dawn
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal


From Romania to New Orleans through nine centuries and thirty-nine lives, Phoenix Maison remembers them all. What she doesn’t remember is how she came to be trapped in this cycle of reincarnation. Every year in every life, she prepares for her possible death, but this life is different from the others. She loves her family and her native New Orleans and longs for a future with her girlfriend. 

Determined to break her curse, Phoenix stumbles down an oddly familiar path back to the only life she doesn’t remember, where her immortal soul lived in an immortal body. 

Even as bloodless corpses pile in her beloved city, Phoenix still hopes to escape her destiny. But her seemingly endless time is running out and she must either embrace what she was always meant to be or let humanity meet a brutal fate. 
The future of mortals and immortals alike lies in her choice.

My Rating: 5 stars

My Review:

Phoenix Always begins with Phoenix Maison, an eighteen-year-old young woman who has lived thirty-nine lives. She is finally happy in her current life with adoring parents, a girlfriend, and a city she loves. However, her clock is ticking down before she once again dies and is reborn. She may be able to break the curse over her but is the cost higher than she is willing to pay?

This novel had me hooked from the beginning! It has great pace and never a dull moment. The way the author interlaced fragments of the protagonist's past with the present is flawless. I loved Phoenix! Her life is so fascinating and she's a strong heroine. You can feel how much she loves her family and friends, and can empathize with the struggles she faces. I really enjoyed the New Orleans setting and with the authentic descriptions of the city you can just see yourself there.

The entire concept of Phoenix Always is absolutely intriguing. There are immortal beings, magic, and plenty of unique characters. It's very well-written, exciting, and has twists and turns throughout that keep you wondering what will happen right up to the end. I look forward to reading the next one!

You can find this amazing book on Amazon!
