The Third Sun is the first book in the Daughter of the Phoenix series by Victoria J Price. I want to thank Victoria for giving me a copy for review.
The sun is dying, the windows to Earth are closing. Time is running out. After the death of her sister, eighteen year old Fia Aldridge knows one thing for certain: she doesn’t belong anywhere. But the she tumbles into the parallel world of Ohinyan—a world where angels and witches walk among mankind.
An ancient darkness is taking advantage of the dying sun, and Ohinyan needs Fia’s help. She soon learns that her arrival is not entirely by accident and that Alexander, leader of angels, is not the guardian she thought he was.
Torn between their feelings and their duties, together they must find a way to return Fia to London before the darkness consumes her and she is trapped in Ohinyan forever.
This is a well written young adult fantasy novel that explores a parallel world that is coming into conflict as darkness is emerging as the second sun dies which is filled with angels and other supernatural beings that at real.
We meet Fia after she has just lost her sister, her life isn’t going to plan. Her boyfriend Henry is cheating, she is coming into abilities of hearing animals talk and she thinks she sees an angel. Suddenly she falls into another world called Ohinyan. She is a strong protagonist as she is thrown into a situation that she doesn’t know how she really fits into.
I love the building relationship with Alexander, an angel who is in charge of keeping light in the coming darkness.
This book is full of magical beings, strong and rich world building as we are taken around Ohinyan and a great assortment characters as we read from the perspectives of Noor, Fia and Alexander.
I’m looking forward to reading book two to see what happens with Fia and Alexander.
