Here are some excerpts from the reviews:
“Right from the beginning Gift of the Phoenix takes you on a wild adventure. The entire story was very intriguing and I kept wondering what was going to happen and where the author was taking the story. The first few pages of the book grip you and does not let go until you turn the last page.” from Book Loving Hippo. A 4-hippo review.
“Gift of the Phoenix is so good, I don’t know where to even start. It’s excellent. It’s one of those books that you read that you don’t want to end because it’s so good, but then you can’t wait to find out where it’s going to go, so you can’t wait to finish it. This novel puts you on an intricately woven path as you meet many characters, but who’s good and who isn’t? The story, the characters, the setting, all of it is so well written, so vivid – I could see the characters, I knew the characters, I felt like I was there, walking through the forest, swimming with the dolphins, being carried by a Tulaga… It has all of the elements of a great story – mystery, magic, suspense, a touch of romance, intrigue… I am so looking forward to the sequel in the Gift of Phoenix series. I absolutely loved this fantasy, to me it ranked right up there with two of my favorite series, Thomas Covenant White Gold Wielder and Lord of the Rings.” from The Write to Read. A 5-star review.
“This epic fantasy is, quite simply, awesome. Beginning hundreds of years before, at the rebirth of the Phoenix, a gift is left– actually, more than one gift. And, these gifts will prove to be the salvation of the world–if the right group of people can be found to receive it. Ms. Cook has done a great job at creating not only the world but each individual character is richly drawn. Each voice is clearly distinct from the other, and the secondary characters are just as well drawn as the primaries. Ms. Cook was able to draw me into the action to the point where I forgot I was reading and just became one with the story–losing all track of time. Thank you, Ms. Cook, for a wonderful wonderful time–and I’m so looking forward to the next book in the series. I have found a new auto-buy author!” from Straight from the Library.
“I loved that it wasn’t a cliffhanger and that it was an epic adventure fantasy completed all in one book. … I would absolutely recommend this book to any who love the genre and even as a good intro to others who don’t because it’s well written, exciting and original.” from Book Bliss. A 4-star review.
