The opening scene of this strange and yet mesmerizing saga was breathtaking. The blurring of reality when you lose someone close to you, the description of the raw emotions and the raw desert environment reflecting that despair and confusion, all was wonderfully rendered. The main character, Lyle, immediately drew me in with his sorrow and determination to do something – anything – to bring his twin brother, Myles, back from the dead.

When a bird appears, which instantly bursts into flame – Phoen...more

In the aftermath of a brutal murder...what happens when a twin’s undying love, a lover’s practical tenderness, and a mythical creature collide? Arlene Webb’s emotionally wrought story not only describes (in rich imagery and detail), the answer to this question, but cleverly explores the depths of human...and supernatural love, at it’s most basic roots.

In the face of his devastating loss (the murder of his twin brother Myles), Lyle’s bitter wit and suicidal tendencies are tempered by Michael Reno...more
Romancing the Book
Review by Ivelisse: As the story started I was intrigued, but as the story progressed I was confused. It starts off with Lyle in the desert caressing his dead brother Myles who was murdered. Out of the corner of his eye he sees a bird and then the bird burst into flames, a voice tells him to consume the ashes of the bird. As soon as he does this, things turn for the worse and he feels very ill and starts hearing a voice in his head. He comes across his twin brother's lover, Renold and together t...more

Arlene Webb creates fantastic worlds, draws you into them from the first page, and makes you believe in the unbelievable.
The death of a twin devastates his brother. Learning that an ancient phoenix has accidentally entered his body only complicates matters.
To give any more information would be a spoiler, so I'll simply say you should read this book for yourself! You won't be sorry.

This is a great story about love in its many forms, but particularly about the love between two brothers. The plot twists and turns as Ms Webb draws us deeper and deeper into the lives of her characters. From a story that starts with a tragedy, you'd wonder how it could end happily, but it does in a unique twist. This is a book that will make you laugh, make you cry and make you sigh!
