Short story with action and character development. I got this book free on my Nook and decided to give it a go. Entertaining but I would have like a continuation of what happened next.

Favorite quote: "One of us is the Lyingbird, one is the Firebird and the last one is the Phoenix. But you'll have to make up your mind alone."

This is the short story that turned into the seed for the three book mini-series "Amadi, the Phoenix, the Sphinx, and the Djinn" years later. It is no longer available.

Since I, the author, learned a lot during the "germination", style and character issues mentioned by reviewers of the short story have been addressed. I hope you will check out the trilogy to see for yourself. ;-)

I like this book. The beginning of the first chapter was a bit off and I almost set it aside but by the end of it I was hooked and when I finished the story, I was looking for a sequel. It was well worth my time, Im glad I stuck with it.
