A brief introduction to Elizabeth Phoenix and her job as a Milwaukee police officer. Also got to meet Max, her partner.
Super short, not very informative, but a look at what happened and how her whole story started.

This was definitely a SHORT story, but a good one. I enjoy this series and this was just another piece to understanding Elizabeth Phoenix. I wish it had been longer because I was sucked into the story and wanted to read more.
This story has a powerful punch to it regardless of it's size. I kept holding my breath, my recommendation is to breathe. Great short story.
Short story that really sets the scene for more to come.
This one is bittersweet to read for a couple of reasons. The first being that this event starts Elizabeth on her new path and she loses one of her friends, the other is that I am sad that the publisher decided not to extend the author more books within this series as it is one of the better ones out there.
0.5 in the Phoenix Chronicles series. This is a 15 page PDF download available at the author's website. There's not enough here to make you want to read the series if this is your first taste. But if you've read even part of the series then this is a nice little bit of information. Enjoy your free treat.
Not a bad little start to her new series.

I look forward to reading the actual stories.
I love this series and was happy to read this wonderful addition!
