Gift of the Phoenix

Gift of the Phoenix

I’m part of the blog tour for another author that lives in my part of Idaho–WhoooHoo!!! Boise is the Best! Here’s the summary.

When three strangers are brought together by the discovery of a common enemy, they must fight to keep the magic of the Phoenix out of dangerous hands before their world is destroyed forever. The Three must learn to unite in spite of what separates them, and unlock the magic of three stones that seem to harm as much as they help. But uniting will not be easy for Nicolai, the simple peasant with a powerful secret; Marcellus, the warrior prince who’s no longer heir to the throne; and Corren, a gifted wizard whose ambitions threaten to ruin them all. Full of magic, mystery, and a touch of romance, Gift of the Phoenix is an epic fantasy that takes the reader deep into the heart of a wondrous world and the three men destined to defend it.

Praise for Gift of the Phoenix

“An incredibly impressive book that grips you from the very start. There is plenty of action in the story, some wonderful characters and magical, atmospheric settings. Donna has created a fascinating realm in this story which, even if you don’t consider yourself a fantasy fan, you’ll definitely enjoy.” – Excerpt of Stephanie Dagg’s review at Books Are Cool.

“As an avid reader of fantasy, I often encounter boring or overused plotlines—this was neither! With a fresh new take on fantasy adventure, Cook constructs an enchanting world of magic, kingdoms, rebirth, and death.” – Excerpt a review by Artemis at Fantasy Book Lovers Unite

“Gift of the Phoenix reminds me of a mix of Paolin’s Eragon and Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, but stands on its own as a unique fantasy-adventure. Cook creates a magic system that is intricate and unique, which can be hard to do in a genre littered with magic. The story is very complex, and yet very easy to follow… layers upon layers of intertwined plots that all culminate to a fantastic ending. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age.” – Excerpt of a review by Will Wortner at Zero2Fiction

  1. Ah! You’re in the Treasure Valley too! I love it here. Especially this time of year. I just want to be outside playing all day. 🙂 Thanks for featuring my book!

    • I signed up for this one because the author was from here and I couldn’t pass the opportunity up. It piques my interest, even though it’s not my normal genre.

      • Thanks for giving it a try. I’ve had some reviews that said the book is good for non-fantasy readers too. It may have that “accessible” feel because I was late to the genre myself. I didn’t get into fantasy until the Harry Potter craze was in full swing. Fantasy is still only 10-20% of what I read. But at the same time, fantasy offers a unique reading experience that can feel off-putting for some readers who aren’t familiar with it. If I’m not sure whether someone will like the kind of story I write, I encourage them to go to the book’s website and read the first few chapters I have posted there. It’s a good way to test drive the story. 🙂 Thanks again for sharing it with your readers. 🙂

    • Taylor, I love getting together with fellow writers. The writing community in Boise is great. Charissa, have you ever been to one of the Idaho Writers Guild luncheons? It’s a fun way to chat with fellow members of the tribe. 🙂

      • I just barely signed up, so I haven’t gone to anything yet. When are they? Are they on the website? I haven’t had much down time lately to check out everything on the Idaho Writer’s Guild yet, but look forward to doing so in the future.

  2. Sounds like a fun one – thanks for letting us know about it! That’s great that you live near each other. You might even be able to meet up for some chocolate sessions. 🙂
