I am thrilled to be on tour for the final instalment of the Daughter of the Phoenix trilogy! I have loved reading about Fia, Alexander and all their friends (and enemies). It’s been a rollercoaster of love, loss, magic and a dying sun. Thank you to Love Books Tours and Victoria J. Price for my copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.


A world on the brink of collapse, and only the fire mother can save it.  

Eighteen-year-old Fia Aldridge was just an ordinary Londoner a few months ago. Now she’s trapped in another world, separated from the friends she was trying to save, with no idea if the angel she loves is alive or dead.  

Held captive alongside her adversary, Lorn, Fia is acutely aware that every moment that passes is a moment Ohinyan doesn’t have. Only the fire mother can reignite Ohinyan’s dying sun, and Erebus, the ancient darkness that imprisoned them, has no idea which of them it could be—only that he needs the fire mother.  

Determined to escape Erebus, working with Lorn is the only way Fia can hope to return home. The fate of Ohinyan rests in their hands.

This book continues where The Eternal Dusk leaves off. Fia and Lorn are in prison, and we do not know for sure what is going on, where they are and what Erebus’ intentions are. 

Fia’s got to break out of wherever Erebus is holding her. Can she work with Lorn to escape and re-kindle the sun before it’s too late? Will she find Alexander again? 

Victoria writes such beautiful characters and the descriptions of the worlds are so vivid, you can imagine where Fia is at each point in the story. Alexander will never stop looking for her, but neither will Erebus. 

Will Fia have to choose between them? And if she does, will Ohinyan survive the fallout? 

I have to say that I am glad that Victoria tied up a few things in this book; so many times in a new trilogy, questions are left unanswered or forgotten. Certain characters were beyond redemption, but others changed for better or worse. 

I’m hoping that Victoria has purposefully left some threads loose to create more books involving Ohinyan.  

Thank you, Victoria, for weaving a wonderful world for your readers. It has been such a fantastic trilogy, and I’m thrilled I got the chance to read and review them.
