I truly enjoy this series, it has enough of a different storyline, that I can't compare it to anything else. Most paranormal series are just the same old things written with a slightly different spin. Phoenix and Ailish were a great couple, a very interesting blend of the Phoenix legend. The first half of the book just kept me captivated enough to keep going. But by the second half, I was completely engaged and holding my breath for the end. Each Wing Slayer has a different predator bird tatooed on them, and each earth witch has a different power. So each story has something new and variable happening between the main couple. And we always get to see what's happening with the other characters in the series. They are full of humor, passion, and dedication. The whole cast really makes this series work. If you haven't read this series, start at the beginning to get the back story.
