Shelf Candy Saturday (27): Phoenix by Elizabeth Richards

Shelf Candy Saturday is hosted by A Night's Dream of Books.

Phoenix (Black City #2) 

by Elizabeth Richards

 Weeks after his crucifixion and rebirth as Pheonix, Ash Fisher believes his troubles are far behind him. He and Natalie are engaged and life seems good. But his happiness is short-lived when he receives a threatening visit from Purian Rose, who gives Ash an ultimatum: vote in favor of Rose's Law permanently relegating Darklings to the wrong side of the wall or Natalie will be killed.

The decision seems obvious to Ash; he must save Natalie. But when Ash learns about The Tenth, a new and deadly concentration camp where the Darklings would be sent, the choice doesn't seem so simple. Unable to ignore his conscience, Ash votes against Rose's Law, signing Natalie's death warrant and putting a troubled nation back into the throes of bloody battle.

Just like the first book in the Black City series Phoenix has a gorgeous cover!  I love the flaming feather and the shadow it casts over the cityscape.


  1. I'mreading BC now and though I'm not halfway, the blurb for this promises some interesting stuff. Can't wait!

  2. Not just a neat cover. A neat idea for a novel too. What a choice!

  3. Hi, Jen!

    OMG. What a BEAUTIFUL cover!! I totally agree with you -- that flaming feather, and the shadow over the city...just STUNNING. This series has incredible covers, so far! Hope it stays that way, too!! And I like the story, as well.
