With her girls on her hips, guns Dinah and Eleanor, Abe her dog and an unlikely ally, Simon she travels to Las Vegas to kill the head of the most powerful organization, her father. She meets old friends, and former lovers, many who are now traitors. Action, action, action. It is a fast paced enjoyable book with the fault… a cliff hanger. I typically find these "woman bent on revenge" stories to follow a standard formula. I am also not a fan of the super natural. However, in this book both elements work.

The author doesn't waste time explaining the magic, yet lets it unfold with the story. This female also does not need a male partner backing her up. The mention of her name is enough to cause tough men to trimble.
I enjoyed this book very much and will check out the next in the series. Great read with Dirty Harryesque lady named Phoenix! Loved it! Hoping to see her kill every bastard in Romanos world. Thank goodness I picked this series next. I've been burdened with a bunch of 1 and 2 star books. It was a bit depressing. Fury of Phoenix starts off with flashbacks and I getting weary. I'm not a fan of flashbacks, but this author did it well enough that I was able to push through them.
We get to know Phoenix aka Nix who has been in hiding and living a normal life. Her family is attacked and she slides back into her old life to get revenge. The book is done really well. Though emotional connection to the family is created early. The action scenes have enough details to make them entertaining but not so much that your bombarded with unnecessary information.
Nix is not a typical female heroine. She doesnt doubt herself or tremble in the wake of killing. She gets the job done and doesn't hold back. It's a bit refreshing. Usually we get this women who are conflicted between being a "good person" and being a kickass chick.
The author uses terms like "abnormal" to describe those of the magical community. I'm still on the fence with how I feel about her terminology. There are a few things that have been done before but I feel the author puts a fresh take on them to keep it interesting. I especially like the canine side kick and the talking weapons. The weapons give you a few good laughs. Similar to Firebrand in the Knightlord series, her guns help her kill and sometimes keep her motivated.
The narrator is Kristine Hvam.

She does an excellent job as always. The only small issue is that I'm so use to hearing her voice and thinking "Jane Yellowrock".

It took me a few chapters to get use to this being a different character. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Who was your favorite character and why? Nix-she's badass, Simon-he sneaky, Abe-he's a dog, what's not to love? Which scene was your favorite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? When she has to let Bear go. Any additional comments? I think in the world of Shannon Mayer I'm a rookie. I've read and adored the Rylee Adamson series. This was a whole new experience. The beginning is tragic and as a mom some parts were extremely hard especially at the time she looses her boys.
I've read some of the reviews that readers had a hard time connecting to Nix or liking her and I can see that BUT if you think about it, it would be hard to connect with someone who only ever loved or was loved by two people that were tragically taken from her. I loved everything about the book and holy cliffhanger batman Khristine Hvam is one of my all-time favorites and does a fantastic job with the characters.
Interesting enough to go on to the next book. Well yeah, I'm back" Title says it all. Former [world's best] assassin tries to have a normal life, but someone goes and kills loved ones The author tries to add a supernatural element to the story, but it is not described in detail at all. I understand that losing a loved one really sucks, but I probably would have liked the book more if we weren't reminded of it every paragraph.
Listen if you want to see a former assassin basically do everything perfectly and get revenge, but I highly suggest going at a high speed to minimize the amount of time you have to hear about her lost family and revenge inner monologues. Great narration, weak story. I had the impression it would be a great fey story where a I find its really a mob gangster plot with a few magic bits thrown in to justify a fantasy status - sorry won't be following Nix again Nick G.
