I absolutely HAD to read this book. The first time i read Joss Stirling's debut book (Finding sky) it was AWESOME!!! And this book was great! From the start i was already hooked with the book, because i knew everything.
Except this time i didn't really like the book. I was actually disappointed. I was looking for a better story from Joss. I thought it was going to be like Finding Sky. On the other hand, i still think its because i like Finding Sky more than Stealing Phoenix.
But this book was still great. It's one of my best 2011 reads.
Oh, my god! I have to talk about the cover in this review. I don't how many second, minuets or hours i just stood there and looked at the cover of the book. And i'm not even lying. I was just fascinated by the book's cover. I was like a child seeing magic right in front of my eyes.
