Phoenyx wakes up with non memory of who she is, but has a power within her that can burn everything around her if she doesn't control herself. Branded a murderer, a crime she can't remember, she is sent to the island a place where she learns what she is and over time maybe she'll learn who she it.
Over time she must learn who to trust and when and must make difficult choices as she learns to grow up in the strange world she lives in. Life isn't easy but it's hers to live as she wants.....right?
Phoenyx is strong in body, but her mind has been messed with so many times it has taken a true beating. As time goes on she must learn to become stronger or risk losing herself altogether.
There are those there to help her and others to keep an eye on her. Will she ever be able to tell them apart? And will she ever learn about her past?
The storyline was interesting, but I wish it had been a bit better developed and understandable with regards to the world created. At times I was confused about certain aspects, but overall the story kept me entertained throughout. Phoenyx was well developed, but I would have like to learn more about the other characters giving them a bit more depth.
Interesting story and I'm intrigued to see where it goes.
