E-Books Phoenix Burning In Phoenix Burning we are once again reunited with young pirate Toby and his inventor father aboard the legendary Phoenix – a ship designed to navigate the poisonous, junk filled seas of the future. Despite being left heartbroken and betrayed by Ayla, first mate from aboard their nemesis ship The Banshee, the duo are soon thrown together again as they attempt to infiltrate the land of the Sun Worshipers to steal vital components for their ships. Disguised as contestants in the yearly competition to be crowned Sun and Moon, Ayla and Toby must put their differences aside to partake in increasingly dangerous trials in order to win the title. Pitted against eight couples from varying backgrounds, they are forced to fight to survive – growing ever closer as they do so. But where will their loyalty lie in the end, with each other or with their crew?This second novel in the Phoenix series is even more action packed than the first. Toby and Ayla have matured, and as their characters grow and develop readers are given a deeper insight into their motivation and the reasons behind their actions. This is particularly interesting when it comes to their feelings for one another – they may be falling in love but that can’t change the fact their parents are mortal enemies with a violent and bloody past. Even the secondary characters are fully fleshed out, as each of the couples they must fight is given a believable and interesting back story. The tone of this second book is definitely darker than the first - the trials the protagonists face are horrific, the punishment for failing even worse – and the atmosphere is eerie and claustrophobic, with the duo stuck inside the walled city, surrounded by silent religious fanatics who consider sun blinding to be the highest honour.It’s a fabulous follow up in a great series. Pearce has created a completely new dystopian future, yet one that is frighteningly possible. I just hope this is not the last we have heard from Toby and Ayla!.

Popular Book Phoenix Burning My name is Toby, and Ayla has stepped onto the deck of the Phoenix again. I thought she liked me up until the moment she had me imprisoned on her mother's ship, the Banshee. My father installed solar panels to power our ship, but we can't use them without an inverter. That's why Ayla is here; she needs one too for her mother's ship. Ayla has an idea. The two of us will win a competition on the island of Gozo and steal their inverters. There are a few problems with her plan. We don’t know where the inverters are kept, we don’t know how to escape, and we’ll be immediately blinded if we win. Now, that we’re here, I see the Sun and Moon competition is all about surviving the challenges. And despite teaming up with Ayla, I know she may stab me in the back at any moment.This book is the sequel to Phoenix Rising, and you need to read it first. You need to know the story of Toby and Ayla’s relationship and the complications arising from their families’ past histories. The setting is in the future, far enough ahead to present creative worlds but close enough to the past to remember how things used to be. Much of this book takes place on Gozo, and the inhabitants have cult-like beliefs. Their whole world is centered on the sun and moon, and they resent other cultures that have misused the sun’s power. Having the contest winners sacrifice their sight in honor of the sun is pretty radical, but sacrifices made by the losers isn’t much better. Throughout the plot, the focus is on the fragile teamwork between Toby and Ayla and their contrasting motivations. The author leaves a dramatic surprise for the climax that is sure to affect the sequel. The utopian island the characters seek is still a mystery, but they discover exciting clues in the book’s resolution.
