First, let me preface this review by saying that I'm the daughter of the author, so my review will be a bit more biased than most.

Outlander Chronicles: Phoenix is a thought-provoking book that heavily explores the essence of belief, the philosophical and religious ways in which we view the world and the nature of man. It’s a book about survival, about living, about relationships, about endings, but also about beginnings as a ravaged group of people s

Dystopian fictions are so extrememly popular and common right now that I made the mistake of lumping Phoenix in with all of the other ones, before having read it.

What this book offers, from the beginning, is what others have a hard time offering. And that is a message of hope.

With two incredibly strong main characters, Phoenix tells a story of a world lost and people who are desperate. Hakim and Jacen are two desperately different individuals, but they manage to come together with a common goa

A fascinating post-apocalyptic and coming of age story. C.H Cobb has impressed me with his creative tale, depth of characters, and the morality that is weaved throughout the plot. Although there are a few minor editing things that would have been nice to be addressed (including some dialogue, wording,formatting, etc), this is a book that I really enjoyed and I heartily recommend it to others. I'm planning on telling a couple Jr. High students about it, too (though it appeals to all different age ...more

It must be hard to be one of the only survivors of a small town. Jacen must decide to put all of the hardships that he has already faced behind him and focus on what is to come. He determines to try to rebuild the small town. He runs into other survivors, naturally, and they must work together for one common goal.


The goal is threatened when Jacen and Hakim run into some very large difference of opinion. Large issues are discussed from religion to the handling of violence-how much is too much? Ho

Anyone who has read Harry Potter is familiar with the story of the Phoenix – a mythological bird who dies in an eruption of flames and is reborn from its ashes. The novel, Phoenix, follows the story of a young man who is trying to reestablish society after its self-destruction in the 21st century.

Twenty-three year old Jacen meets up with a mysterious traveler who joins him in his pursuit to establish a new settlement in the American West. During their adventures, Hakim, who is a Christian, asks

Chris Cobb’s resume reads like a patchwork quilt. He’s driven a forklift, worked as a technician doing component-level repair on digital circuitry, been a programmer-analyst, a data-center shift operator, taught high school science and mathematics, and been an Information Technology Director at a graduate school. Most of his career he’s been a pastor.


He lives with his wife, Doris, in western Ohio,

“The West committed suicide, and the East merely feasted upon the carcass. Your people destroyed themselves. They exalted the autonomous self, like the Europeans before them, and lost the soul of their civilization. They dehumanized themselves, and found themselves not worth saving.” 0 likes
