I enjoyed Black City and Elizabeth’s Romeo and Juliet romance set against the backdrop of a dark and gritty dystopian world, so I was anxious to slip back into the series. Richards amped up the suspense, drama and delivered action-packed scenes in Phoenix the second novel. I consumed this in a single afternoon and my three world review would be: intense, dramatic, heart-stopping.
I fell in love with the cover of Black City last year, but my tbr pile got in the way and then Penguin sent me Phoenix book two and I knew I just had to read this. Richards’ offers us a post-apocalyptic love story that is bittersweet and wrapped in a dark and gritty world filled with propaganda, a ruthless leader and danger at every turn. I enjoyed this and quickly slipped into the world of Black City.
