Melissa reviewed Phoenix (A Leah Wolfe SINS Novel Book 4)
As a federal agent Leah Wolfe would do anything for someone she loves even if it means putting herself in danger. So when her godson is kidnapped by Phoenix, a former Marquis, her immediate reaction is to agree to trade herself for him. However, her fiancé, Ian Nightwalker, a current Marquis, knows all about Phoenix and he tries to convince Leah to wait a bit and let him find another way to get the boy back.
As a federal agent for SINS, Leah feels more than able to pull a fast one on a madman, even if he is an ancient vampire, with the help of Ian and his team. However, things go a bit south when Leah is taken and she awakes and faces the horrors that Phoenix has created while searching for a way to revenge his dead lover. Leah has every faith in Ian and his people, but for her to get out of this situation in one piece and to take Phoenix and his creations down, it will take all of her skills along with Ian’s might. Along the way, Leah and Ian are going to be given something worth fighting for besides defeating a madman who threatens civilization as we know it.
You should never make a SINS agent with powers cranky or her vampire fiancé because your life expectancy becomes non-existent. Leah and Ian prove this exact thing in Phoenix. No one, least of all me, should have been surprised when Leah instantly agreed to put herself into harm to save her godson. I have always loved her protectiveness of those that she loves; it’s such an intricate part of her. Nor was I surprised when Ian wanted to find another way to get the job done to try and keep Leah safe. I loved getting more of a glimpse of the intense love between Leah and Ian and was very happy when a huge surprise was revealed at the end of the book. I also enjoyed how twists that I originally thought were red herrings were revealed as part of Phoenix’s plot. Phoenix is a fast paced suspense filled story, which proves that love can bring wonderful things and cause horrible things depending on how fate turns.
