Phoenix Feather introduces us to a beloved mythical creature: the phoenix. This creature is known to never truly die, always being reborn from its ashes, but she is never known to take on a human form. Instead most envision a fiery flame kissed bird who is about as tameable as a wild forest fire. No one would ever connect the dots that a college student studying to become a history professor could be one in the same as Aidan Quinn.

Aidan appears to be no more or less than your average woman. Sure
The mythology of the Phoenix is at the heart of this story, with the twist of it taking on a different human form every one hundred years.Twenty years into her current life, Aiden Quinn is a grad student in history.And she finds herself grown weary of the eventual loss of those she has loved throughout the centuries.But never one to wallow,she lives a life full of school,work and close friends.
Enter Trent McCain. Fireman,ordinary guy,who finds himself drawn to the attractive waitress with the

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I was so thrilled to read this book!! The synopsis made this a must read for me, and I love the concept of the story. Aidan is a phoenix--a mythological creature that lives, dies, and rises from the ashes to be reborn into a new life. She meets a firefighter named Trent, and after much hesitation on her part, they begin dating. It's difficult for her to get close to people when she knows she'll keep on living after

Aidan Quinn is not your typical college student. She is a phoenix, who is living her life as a human. Every 100 years, she retreats to a remote location to die and be reborn, and she has lived almost 2000 years on this planet.

Aidan meets firefighter Trent McCain at work one day, and they seem to hit it off. Along with her friends, Chris and Phoebe, this life for Aidan seems pretty good... until a serial killer starts targeting red-headed victims.

Bryan, Trent's brother, is assigned to the case,

The Good...

This was quite possibly Angela Wallace's best book yet. I loved the murder mystery parts. Her use of details concerning how an investigation proceeds, as well as what happens in a fire department, showed a mastery of balance between the amount of research done and what actually gets used in the story.

I also enjoyed the way she treated the characters' feelings regarding Chris's illness. It was an honest view of different people's

I received this book to give an honest review.

I loved the way this story was told, you have Aidan who has a secret! She is a phoenix who unknown to her is being hunted. She has decided to live life as a human and have friends and ends up in a relationship with Trent a fireman! How ironic right? Aidan is a phoenix who can rise from the ashes and Trent fights fires. Trent is the adorable book boyfriend so kind, caring, thinks of others, willing to help those going through a hard time even if he do
A free download from Amazon. I give this book 2 and 1/2 stars . I liked it but I didn't. It seems to tout the supernatural quality of the book, but in essence only the first and last chapter really pertain to a supernatural influence. The bulk of the book is centered around relationships, finding love .
I starting flipping thru pages looking for the fantasy supernatural part.

Aidan is in this life , working on her master's degree. She is a phoenix. She goes thru her life cycles ... birth - death ,

Aidan is actually a phoenix and is reborn every hundred years. However in this lifetime she has found true friends, Phoebe and Chris, and true live in Trent. I loved the unique story line and characters but wish the relationship between Trent and Aidan had more to it. I wanted more depth into their relationships, from learning more on their dates to conversations. But overall this is a heart warming story about the steps one will take to save their loved ones.

I enjoyed this book because the characters were compelling. Caught up in the concerns and issues of the people, the unfolding of the story felt very natural. While the subject matter might be fantastic, the emotional impact is very effective. Top notch storytelling. You should read it...
