Review: Blood of the Phoenix by Shannon Mayer

Sorry for the delayed post today, my son broke his arm last night while at football practice and my review totally slipped my mind. 

Blood of a Phoenix
Release Date: Spetember 2, 2017
Publisher: Hijinks Ink Publishing
Nix Book #2
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Review Copy Source: Author

I thought that going after those who'd destroyed my life would help me move on. At the very least, that it would ease the thirst for vengeance singing in my blood. I was wrong.

With my guns at my side, I continue to search for ways to punish the one man who took everything from me. The man who killed my family. Death is far too good for him.

I want to make him suffer, to take from him everything he loves.

To that end, I need a code breaker, one who deals in magical glyphs. But in the hunt for her, I discover there are far more secrets to my life, and my blood, than I ever could have imagined.

Secrets that are burning their way out of the past and the shadows.

A promise dangled in front of me by the enemy of my enemy is too sweet to ignore. And I will cast all my cards on the table for the one chance that the promise he offers is true.

That my son is alive.

God help those who stand between my boy and me.

I really enjoyed getting to know Nix in FURY OF A PHOENIX and BLOOD OF THE PHOENIX made me like her even more. Another great book by Shannon Mayer.

There was a lot going on in BLOOD OF THE PHOENIX, but there isn't much I can tell you about without giving spoilers away. Nix continues to grow as a character and continues searching for justice. We learn a lot about Romano's deal with the devil and a little bit about how it affects Nix. We get to know Nix's guns Eleanor and Dinah a little better and learn a bit more about their past with her sister. On top of all that an enemy becomes an ally, and an ally turns into an enemy. Nix has been through so much, but it's far from over.

I absolutely heart Killian and am really excited to watch his and Nix's 'relationship' grow. Her husband didn't die that long ago, but I can totally see them together and wouldn't mind it one bit.

Mayer's Nix series is definitely becoming my fave series of hers and I look forward to seeing what happens next for the characters.

I gave it 4/5 stars
