The sequel to Jessica Wayne's The Phoenix packs an emotional punch. Several in fact... even more than the first book in the series.

Anastasia is being held captive, only to waken to a dream... a devastating dream of what her life might have been. Dakota is determined to find Anastasia. He's already lost her once. He will do whatever it takes to get her back. And he does, at long last.

But their triumph is short-lived, for beautiful Terrenia is under attack, Anastasia is drained from the emotiona

In The Fighter by Jessica McCrory, everyone is in mortal danger. Lives will be lost, and soon the fight hits close to home for Anastasia. She see's things... things she doesn't know if its real or fake. And becomes afraid of herself and what danger she costs to her friends. The only thing she can do is keep her distance, and focus on the mission.

Dakota understands why she hides away, and it breaks his heart piece by piece. He fights the invisible bonds and forces Ana to see that he is in it fo

Great follow on from The Phoenix.
The story was well laid out and I really enjoyed seeing the development of the characters. Except the Phoenix herself, she didn't appear to be doing much emerging from ashes in this book. She got on my nerves quite a lot to be honest but it's nice to have a character pull that emotion from me.
I can't really say I was overly surprised by some of the plotline but the author makes up for that with a stinking cliff hanger.
Nice mix of genres to keep everyone happy an

I absolutely love this series. These books are easy to read and keep your attention while leaving you wanting more. Love how a young girl who was abused turned her misfortune into strength and became a powerful leader. This is a combination of romance, sci-fi, and suspense. I cannot wait to read the third and final book in this series.
I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I also gave this book a solid 4 stars! 

I'm always weary of a sequel - this one did not disappoint. It had action, suspense, and even romance! I felt like it was a solid story to follow up book one, The Phoenix, where we learned just who Anastasia was and what her destiny held. 

This book jumps right into the action, so be ready! I did get really frustrated a few times with our main character, Anastasia, because she's so head strong sometimes that she feels the need to take on everything her self

I love love love this author!! This is the third book I have read by Jessica and yet again she doesn't disappoint! It has been a long time since I have read a book in a day but I just couldn't put it down!

I admit in the middle I got sick and tired of Anastasia, she made me so mad! And she didn't make me feel any less forgiving towards her as the book went on, but that is a sign of a fantastic author if they can make you feel so much emotion towards a character!

I am completely in love with Dako

As the second book in the prophecy series I had eagerly awaited this book having read the first. Following Anastasia and Dakota as they battle the evil Vincent, Ana’s uncle, a sorcerer that is trying to take over the many worlds with the help of people from these worlds and Ana’s grandmother Carmen Ana has to learn to use the same magic that turned her uncle dark in the first place.
I would recommend this to paranormal and fantasy lovers alike, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading these books.

The Fighter is the second book in the Prophecy series and it's as action packed if not more than the first book, The Phoenix. Jessica knocked it out of the park with this book and this series. I'll never forget what she said about writing fantasy in one of her live feeds, she said " when writing fiction/fantasy no one can tell you you're writing in wrong because no one really knows what magic is like or even real. You can make it your own." That really stuck to me. I loved it, the writing is gre ...more

not my typical genre to read, so it surprised me that i liked it. its part 2 in the series with a third to come. Typically i hate cliff hangers...but thats just me. The author notes that there is a reason for it. So ill trust her and look forward to the next installment.
Well written, great story.
Would recommend.

This is a great follow up book to Jessica Wayne's The Pheonix. This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster and you will never know what turn the story is going to take next. I loved getting to know Anastasia and Dakota more in depth and seeing more of how this series is laid out. I can not wait to see how this all comes to an end now.

By the way... Watch out for the cliffhanger!

The second book in the series kept me reading and not wanting to stop! I got to know Dakota better and appreciate his dedication to Anastacia. My heart kept going out to Anastacia as she continues to deal with hardship and loss. She takes so much on her shoulders and has to deal with more viciousness wrought by Vincent. I am looking forward to the continuation of this story in The Sorceress!

LOVED this book. It the second in a series of three. Just like the first book, THE PHOENIX, it seemed so realistic, yet the fantasy element enhanced the plot tremendously.
It kept me wondering what would happen next. I mean I could not put the book down. Cannot wait for the sequel!!

This is book 2 in the series and it was just as good as the first. Ana has had a lot to deal with and overcome and I have a feeling I will like her even more in the 3rd book. It ends in one heck of a cliffhanger so am really looking forward to book 3.

Love Love Love seeing how the connection between Dakota and Anastasia is one that won't easily be broken. When they finally come together they are thrown into a world that shows them what it would be like to just forget. Forget their mission, forget their people, forget the world that Anastasia has come to love. While trying to figure it all out Anastasia and Dakota have choices to make, but ones that aren't easily made.
