Stealing Phoenix by Joss Stirling
I finished reading this book on Saturday, it is the second in the series following 'Finding Sky'
While I did quite enjoy reading this, it is not a proper sequel per se, as it introduces a new lead character - Phoenix. Sky doesn't appear until later in the book, however the story follows a very similar pattern to the first, an English girl meets American boy, they both have Savant powers, they don't like each other at first but then that changes. So nothing new or ground breaking in the plot, just a loosely written rehash of the first book with a UK setting instead of an American one and a different Benedict brother as the main male character.
The story goes at a good pace and it's easy to read, but if you look too closely, the similarities to the first book will start to annoy you, however if you don't take it too seriously it's an ok read. If you are looking for a sequel that follows Sky and Zed you will be disappointed as this is not case, I felt a bit cheated, as that was what I was hoping for.
Perhaps Joss Stirling will provide that if there is a third book in the series, so I won't say anymore on the matter until then. Let's hope that if there is another book it will deliver what the reader is expecting - the original lead characters... but if not, then I won't be buying any more from this author.
My overall reading experience rating is a 3 out of 5.
