Black Butterfly was my first read by author Dante Feenix. It started off slow but then picked up speed mid point. This was a good urban fiction mystery It was action packed and left me wondering what would happen in part 2. If you are looking for a quick read, this is definitely for you!

Okay, so I just finished this novel and am halfway through part 2. I loved the fact that a single mother was put into a heroic light. Wow, I don't know where to begin... a single mother has dreams of being a star but is not supported by the people around her. Only her young son believes in her dreams(sounds like a nice cute little story, right?) Wrong! She is framed for a murder and all hell breaks lose in her life when the REAL bad guys go after her son to smoke her out of hiding. And boy does ...more
I really don't have much to say about this one. It's one of those books that stuff happens but nothing you get excited about.

There was murder, set up plots, sex (not bad and not to much) but nothing that had me hanging on the authors every word. I've already bought the other 2 so I will finish up those but if I hadn't already purchased them I think I would be done. I'll see if book 4 & 5 are worth buying after I finish 2 & 3. It was a trilogy, but now I think there are 5 stories to date

Beautifully written

FIve stars goes out to the Feenix. This was my first book I read by this author. I was truly touched in some many ways. I understand the struggle of a single parent trying to make it, only to have those around you try to crush your dreams. It's a shame that Nadet, a innocent child had to suffer in the end. A compelling story of how sometimes the system fails to protect us.

Black butterfly was like a murder and street lit. wrapped in one the bond between Eboni and her son (Nadet) is priceless for this to have had been Dante Feenix's 1st book shocks me because, his poetry alone (SHOULD BE A BOOK!)those peoms are very good I'm suprised at how well he combined the two, I've never seen anything like that before I LOVED that idea over all it's a good read
