I also have a dedicated site just for Gift of the Phoenix. Feel free to check it out.
Here’s the back of the book blurb:
A prince is murdered.
An island sinks into the sea.
A thousand-year-old ritual foretells great evil.
A nation’s fate rests in the hands of three strangers, thrust together by their common destiny to protect the Phoenix, and their world, from destruction. The Three must learn to unite in spite of what separates them, and unlock the magic of three stones that seem to harm as much as they help.
Their journey leads through unexpected doors. Along the way they encounter a cursed people, a haunting vision, a woman on the run.
It all begins and ends with the gift of the Phoenix.
