Review: Phoenix

Phoenix Phoenix by Cecilia London
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How I felt while reading this book???

And yet I gave this book 5 stars. I'd give it more if I could. Because as much as I felt like I absolutely hated Caroline here, my sympathy for her was unavoidable. Because as much as her words and actions absolutely appalled and disgusted me, they were REAL. Cecilia London did a remarkable job of illustrating Caroline's PTSD and how it affected herself and others.

There were so many times I really wanted to hurt Caroline.

Ok. I mean really hurt her. That right there ^^^ was too cute to resist.

hit

Or something like that.

She broke my freaking heart people!! But that's truly a testament to the author's skill. Because I felt E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!! Even Jack's reactions seemed real. He tried so hard to remain strong, stoic, unwavering. But sometimes it was too much and I felt it every time he came close to breaking.

stoic

This book ends on one hell of a cliffy. Caroline and Jack's relationship still hangs in the balance. She's off on a dangerous mission for the rebellion. I cannot WAIT to see what happens next in Rhapsody.
