Phoenix Team One: Selected (Mythical Alliance: Phoenix Team Book 1) by Claire Luana was a fun fantasy read. I have never read a serialized book like this before, the fantasy world and all that happens had me hooked. I loved all the details and how they were written into the story so smoothly. I loved Zariya, she is spunky and strong and willing to do anything to find the truth. There was so much going on in the story and I just loved how fast it was paced nothing felt like it was being rushed or unexplained.There was a perfect balance.

This was a great story that I enjoyed from beginning to end. I didn’t want to put this one down! It was well written and I immediately got sucked into this urban fantasy world. This story had lots of action and suspense and of course a really sexy vampire. What more could a girl want?? This story follows Zariya Chanji and her quest to find the truth behind her father’s death. She believes he was murdered and she will stop at nothing to find the truth. The deeper she goes the more dangerous it gets! Will she survive long enough to find out what happened to her father? Or will she end up in the same place he did?
I really enjoyed this and I am very much looking forward to reading more in this series and by this author!
Happy Reading!

5 ++++ Stars

I’m so confused. I don’t read these kinds of books on a normal basis, but something drew me to this and I’m so hooked right now wanting the second in this series like right now!

I’ll admit that since I haven’t read a lot of Fantasy, many of the terms were foreign to me. This in no way though took away from how much I enjoyed this story. It was short, I read it in about an hour but it felt like a full length novel full of all kinds of information that leads me to believe this is going to be an awesome series. Although it moved quickly, it never felt rushed. Emphasis was put in all the right places and it didn’t leave me wishing there was more except wanting the next.

I’ve read a couple stories by this author, and completely enjoyed them, which was one of the reasons I took a chance. I enjoyed the well placed humor in some spots that made me smile, then the edge of your seat action thinking in some spots maybe I knew what was going on, but completely unsure at the same time. I love the characters, Zariya was on a mission and she wasn’t about to be deterred from that. What she got while exploring this was all sorts of fun. I loved the underlying feel of a romance building, yet never fully forming..Yet? I loved the feel of friendship that was being tested and hope that all of that works out in the end. I loved the family feel as well and Auntie was definitely a favorite of mine. So although this didn’t end on a kindle throwing cliff hanger, there are so many questions I can’t wait to receive answers on.

Seriously..Grab this, it is truly an amazing book!

This is an amazing paranormal adventure that had me hooked from the 1st page. And i cant wait for the next one to find out what happens

Zariya is anything but a normal human but she lived a pretty normal life training to become a doctor. Until her father was killed in an accident.

However Zariya isnt convinced it is an accident and sets out to uncover the truth about what happend to her father.

What she doesn’t expect is to find out her dad was living a double life and everyone she thought she knew and could trust, she can’t.

After finding this out she has a choice to make. Embrace the life her dad had which is now her path or turn away from everything.

by Claire Luana

5 out of 5 stars

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I simply loved it I even read this story in one sitting but it does have a cliffhanger. The plot was awesome and different and the characters are well written. I just loved their quirkiness.

Zariya Chanji, is convinced her father was murdered and she will stop at nothing to uncover the truth–even if she must break into the headquarters of one of the most powerful organizations in the world. MASC, the Mythical Alliance of Supernatural Creatures, governs the lives of supes like herself, and she knows they had a hand in covering up her father’s murder.
She does not understand, why they are covering his death up?
When her investigation draws the unwanted attention of a MASC she decides to go on the defense. She meets a vampire who is as handsome as he is powerful, and she know she is close to the truth. But the deeper she gets, the more dangers lurk in the shadows, and the harder it becomes to tell friend from foe. The truth will change everything–if she can stay alive long enough to find it.
I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to see what Zariya gets up to in the next book….

“Your hands are as cold as ice.”
I smiled. “Cold-blooded.”
dark eyebrows shot up like two bushy caterpillars. “What are you?”
Rude. Didn’t this guy know anything? You didn’t ask a supe what kind of creature they were.
“Naga,” I answered. “Well, half anyway.”
…..Many mythical creatures—supes, as they’re called these days—share kinship or at least a passing resemblance with animals.
Nagas are snake supes. In ancient times, they were thought to be gods, and that suited them just fine. Nagas are capable of shifting between the form of a human and the form of a huge snake—or somewhere in the middle—human torso, snake lower half. Full-bloods have incredible power—they’re strong, fast and agile. All their senses are heightened, and they have an extra one too: Nagas can use their infrared glands to sense the heat of a nearby body one hundred yards away. Then there’s the poisonous venom, and the fact that Nagas can swallow someone whole. Though it isn’t a particularly pleasant experience, from what I’ve heard. You’re bloated as hell for days afterwards. As a half-blood, I can’t do most of that cool shit. My form is permanently stuck somewhere between a snake and a human. I have the slivered pupils and forked tongue of a Naga, together with a pattern of golden scales that stretch up my neck to my temples as Martin so classily observed. I have much of my race’s heightened senses: strength, speed, and venom. But compared to many supes, I’m weak. ”

 

“My gut tightened with anger as tears pricked my eyes. Impotent fury and soul-sucking grief, my two ever-present companions these past six weeks.”

 

“Nagas avenge our dead. It’s my right. I won’t be able to rest until I do. Dad won’t be able to rest until I do.”

 

Phoenix Team One: Selected is the first book in the Mythical Alliance: Phoenix Team series by Claire Luana. This is the first instalment/episode of the new serialized urban fantasy series which will consist of novella length instalments to follow along, as the story/series unfolds. This first book sets things off to a fantastic start- bringing all kinds of paranormal beings/creatures (supes), action, drama, danger, adventure, mystery, secrets, discovery, and lots more.
Zariya is on a quest for vengeance after the death of her father. She is determined to hunt down those responsible for his murder and wreak her revenge. But as she begins to investigate she discovers that things are much more complicated than she imagined. What she uncovers will change her perspective about everything she thought she knew and will set her on a life changing adventure.
I enjoyed this engaging story, and as expected Ms. Luana’s fantastic world building and endearing characters really brought everything to life, making it entirely realistic and believable.
Cannot wait to see where we go from here!

Thank you, Ms. Luana!
