Titanian’s Phoenix: Titanian Chronicles by Victoria Saccenti

Titanian’s Phoenix is a fantasy/romance that I absolutely loved reading. I loved the story and the characters. I needed an adventure and this didn’t disappoint. I found myself lost in the pages and couldn’t stop until I finished. There’s action, mythical creatures, magic and romance . Maya and Soren have a strong connection from the get go . Maya always thought she was normal. Her grandmother used to tell her stories or so she thought that’s what they were. When they are kidnapped she learns of a whole nother life she only thought existed in the stories she was told. Find out what happens next in this absolute must read. This is definitely one I’m going to re-read. Im looking forward reading more from this Author.

This was a great read, with plenty of both old and new world fantasy, magical beings and powers, and tons of action. The worldbuilding is incredible and the descriptions are so vivid. I loved the idea of Maya and Soren supposedly fated to be mates but whatever their concerns, their romance is timeless, even with all of the action and adventure they go through as well. The other characters are also well-developed. This is definitely a page-turner read.

Titanian’s Phoenix: Titanian Chronicles
By Victoria Saccenti

This book took me on a great adventure. I was drawn in from the beginning and I couldn’t put it down. This story is rich in detail with great world building. There is action, danger, magic, romance and wonderful characters. I enjoyed watching Maya learn and grow into her powers. The moment Maya and Soren meet you can feel the connection between these two and their connection grows and gets stronger as the story goes. This book also has a lot of other characters that I grew very fond of. I cannot wait to read what comes next. I can’t say enough good things about this book. I highly recommend reading it.

If you love fantasy and paranormal books, look no further because Titanian’s Phoenix is the book for you. Victoria Saccenti did an amazing job building this world for us to visit. Her descriptive writing style can be seen from the first page until the last. I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride and I did not want to get off until I was finished with the book. The characters are fully developed with multiple layers so you can bond with them. Maya is unsure of the fantasy world and magic. Maya’s godmother, Anna, and herself are kidnapped by elves. Maya and Anna get freed by this unknown power. Now Maya is learning about everything. Maya finds Soren and the rest is exciting. There is a bond between Soren and Maya that makes Soren protective over Maya and Maya learning more about her role in the fantasy world. I highly recommend this book to see what happens between Maya and Soren.

This book is a romance novel that travels well throughout the realms. The magic and supernatural element makes it such a special read. “Titanian’s Phoenix” is written with such intense experiences in mind, the words are made to flow together beautifully. The main characters grow together and make each other better. Their relationship is the relationship everybody wants: intuitive towards each other’s wants and needs, unconditional love under any circumstances, and complete and total trust in the shared commitment. Read this book if you enjoy romance, lust, bravery, cool fight scenes, supernatural magic, and a whole new world to lose yourself in. The author makes the reader feel safe, loved, adventurous, and adored, simply by experiencing the characters feelings for one another and heir societal obligations.

So nothing rains on a normal parade than being kidnapped by a bunch of elves along with your godmother, the same godmother that has told you all your life that you are absolutely normal. To be honest, I would get suspicious by such an assertion made so many times, but Maya doesn’t notice how shady this is till she is knee-deep in pointy-eared problems and gets out of it by some mysterious power that she had been assured all her life was not a thing.
Not long after these massive bombshells exploded in her lap and blew any chance of normality out of the water, her godmother (name of Anna by the way) tells her to go and find the owner of a magical bar by the name of Soren. I have to say, I quite liked the name Soren for a male lead, was obscure but not to the point that you got the impression the author had pored through a book of weird baby names that no one ever thought of. When Maya and Soren meet, sparks fly, stars align and they connect, with Soren realising that, even though it had never been in the scrolls for him, that she is his mate and will literally do anything to protect her.
I really liked this, especially the fantasy elements. I especially liked the moments in the bar, wished it were somewhere that actually existed where I could just pop off to for drink, but alas with the way things are that is a fantasy. I think that Saccenti has created something really interesting here and look forward to reading more of her work.

Maya is a woman brought up in New York by her godmother Anna, she is street smart, independent and loves her job and has been brought up on fairytales which common sense denied could not be true, but all that changes when she and Anna are kidnapped by Elves and in order to escape, her godmother has to reveal some of her past which has been kept a secret for many years and tells her to head straight to a bar and ask for a man called Soren when she gets there. This is all too much for Maya to take in, but when she has to go, she does exactly as Anna asks, even though she wants to return to the apartment first, so with nothing but the clothes on her back, she escapes and with full awareness that the elves will be following her as soon as they realise she has gone, however, when she gets to the bar, it isn’t what she expected and neither is the man she finds there, or the effect he has on her.

Soren has been summoned to the pub and as he enters, the patrons either disperse or are blinded to their arrival if they are human, this makes it easier to scan them and take their drinks upstairs so they can keep a look out for why their presences were required, it all seems normal until a well known elf comes in, but this normal in the least and when he is joined by a demon and a human, it is even less so and the discussion they have is even more disturbing the longer it goes on, this puts Soren on alert and he calls on a friend to share this new piece of information. As soon as someone is sent to follow each of the leads, Soren returns to his drink, that is until a woman walks in the door and his body reacts instantly, he doesn’t know what is happening to him until his tattoo starts to tingle and he realises that his mate has just walked in, this is a complete surprise as his life scroll has never revealed a mate, but he is going to protect her with his life of he needs to and when she faints as soon as she looks at him, her fate is sealed as well. He immediately takes her to his home and meets up with his family and friends to update them on the situation while waiting for the ones he sent out to return and fill them in on their finds, but when one goes missing, it becomes a race against time to find them.

As the group find out more about the danger they are in and what the enemy is planning, the budding relationship between Maya and Soren develops, as does Maya’s Phoenix mark, she is having a hard time processing it all and is thankful for all the help she is getting from others, but when she starts to come into powers of her own, the group must try and keep the information to themselves as any inklings of it getting to the enemy will spell their downfall.

Will Maya and Soren work things out and be able to complete their bond before time runs out, or will the enemy play their cards right and stop whatever they may have in its tracks? Will they be able to defeat their enemy when the need arises, or will the casualty numbers grow before they can do anything about it? This is a story of romance, love, revelations and relationships which are tested to their breaking point, it is an adventure with more secrets than the characters can handle and a lot of action, but to know what happens, you have to read to the end and enjoy the revelations as they come!

What an incredible start to Victoria Saccenti’s newest series! Titanian’s Phoenix is a new take on the idea of humans unknowingly coexisting alongside mythical creatures, and the power struggle between the different races of fae.
Maya Brown never really payed much credence to her godmother’s stories about magic existing in the world, until she wakes up kidnapped and drawn into the middle of a struggle for power and control in the mythical world. Soren Westerberg is a Titanian Enforcer, tasked with being the final line of protection and justice in this fantastic world; it is both a birthright and a curse. He never anticipated that his life path would include a soulmate, someone who is destined to be his perfect match in all things, until Maya stumbled in to the dive bar favored by his people asking for him by name and in need of his help to evade her kidnappers. This first encounter of the story’s lead characters is the introduction to nonstop action and uncovering secrets within a world of magic.

Well this author just smashed this book out of the park! I am impressed with the world building, characters and story line. I just couldn’t get enough. I enjoyed watching Maya take her journey and find her way. She is a smart gal and that just help enhance her in her new life. Soren is a protective, possessive guy! He is all about making sure she is safe while he leads the other enforcers.

The secondary characters are plentiful and delightful. The author does a good job not overwhelming us with a bunch of characters all at once. They are slowly introduced which helps build their characters as well as the connection to the main ones.

Overall this is excellent. The story took me on a journey and the characters kept me interested. There is lively conversations. I eagerly look forward to more!

4 Stars!!!!

I love finding new authors to read. This book was an excellent find. I find that the author has a very refreshing story as well as a nice mix of fantasy and romance along with just the right amount of drama and action. I really found myself getting lost in this book and just didn’t want it to end.

I really like the energy between Maya and Soren. I like how the blend of mythical and human is used in the book and I like how it wasn’t predictable. I like that the author is able to weave a tale and draw in the reader and keep the lure. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
