This is the third book in Cynthia Eden’s Phoenix Burn Series. It was a great addition to the series. This was a story I couldn’t put down. This book captured my attention just as the other two did.

Cassandra Armstrong’s father turned her into a siren when she was just a little girl and that is when she first met Dante and fell in love with him. But now Cassandra has been following Dante all over the country and every time she has found him he has died and come back and his memory of her is somewhat gone.

As they both fight Genesis Dante’s memories of Cassandra come back full force and he realizes that he loves her and he will do whatever it takes to protect her from her father and Dr. Wyatt. Once they are free he tells her that he loves her and they marry.

Finally when Genesis is gone at this point they start to live a life and have a family. But they know this isn’t the end of Genesis completely. They will have to fight with the other Phoenixes to protect their families and their freedom.

I really liked how Cynthia Eden brings the characters from the first two books into this one. She creates a perfect story to keep the reader captivate to the pages till the end and at the end waiting for the next story to go with the story.

I give this story 5 stars and would recommend this whole series to anyone that loves paranormal romance and would like a change in paranormal creatures.
