Here's the low down on what this exciting and delicious new book is about.
"In a future world where fossil fuels have run out and democracy has collapsed, an outlawed pirate crew fight for survival on their ship, the Phoenix, kept afloat by whatever they can salvage or scavenge on the debris-filled seas. Toby has never known anything other than life onboard the Phoenix and he's desperate for adventure. But when trouble comes hunting the Phoenix down, Toby realises that what you wish for isn't always what you want. He meets beautiful Ayla from the Banshee, a rival pirate ship and sworn enemy of the Phoenix, and his world is thrown into disorder. How can he know who to trust and what to believe? The future rests on him making an impossible choice..."
Seriously though, how epic is the cover? The skull and bones, the emerging faces of Toby and Ayla, the burnt gold colour. It does the story justice.
Phoenix Rising is set to release on June 1st, 2015 from Stripes Publishing. As I've been kindly supplied with an ARC, the review for this book will be posted near the end of June so keep your eyes peeled!
