Book Review: Phoenix Always (Immortal Souls #1)

Title: Phoenix Always (Immortal Souls Book 1)

Author: Jae Dawn




From Romania to New Orleans through nine centuries and thirty-nine lives, Phoenix Maison remembers them all. What she doesn’t remember is how she came to be trapped in this cycle of reincarnation. Every year in every life, she prepares for her possible death, but this life is different from the others. She loves her family and her native New Orleans and longs for a future with her girlfriend.

Determined to break her curse, Phoenix stumbles down an oddly familiar path back to the only life she doesn’t remember, where her immortal soul lived in an immortal body.

Even as bloodless corpses pile in her beloved city, Phoenix still hopes to escape her destiny. But her seemingly endless time is running out and she must either embrace what she was always meant to be or let humanity meet a brutal fate.
The future of mortals and immortals alike lies in her choice.


My review:

5/5 Stars

So wow…just wow! I think I just found my absolute favorite vampire book ever!

There’s so much to this amazing tale that I don’t even know where to begin. I think I’ll start by saying I’ve wanted to read this book for a while and now that I’ve finally gotten my hands on it, I devoured it in only a few hours. Phoenix, very much like her name, lives on a cycle of birth and death, 39 reincarnations to get to the life she currently lives in. A life she loves. As the story goes on, she learns the truth of her curse and what she can do to break it.

A story of romance, adventure, and supernatural angst, this is a fantastic book that I would definitely recommend to any and all readers! Even if you don’t like vampire stories, Jae has a great way of rewriting the age-old tale of blood-sucking monsters into something new and marvelous. I can’t wait to see what else this series has in store!

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
