I eally hated the toryline and the characters and it ould e " great " book if it went a little bit deeper into hose characters and what their experiences were that made them who they are.

So, there is n't a single character here who is conflicted or interesting enough to justify a six-book series.Edith/Sophie attempts to hav th phoenix, leaving her old life behind in the ashes while flying to higher heights.

Sophie is flat, without emotion or deep conflict at any point, and hat means that her mistakes grate against the nerves more than they might for another character.

They ge in with stories of their own, and he write does a excellen job of giving them in with enough backstory to give you more depth to the story.As I said, I icked up the novel, ot looking for much about it.
