Overall Rating 5 Stars

            Holy WOW, this book is my favorite in this series. This author really knows how to draw in the audience and hold on. This book I think was more entertaining and well written. The details that she puts into the book was wonderful.

Then there is Phoenix and Victor the new comers. This book really had me on the edge of my seat. With the magic and suspense. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! I cannot wait until the story continues and we find out what happens to the gang. OHH and the twist and turns WOW!! And my emotions were all over.
            This is my favorite YA series as of right now. Thank you for writing another great book.


1 Author Bio


Rylee Everley Series by S.M. Knowles
S.M. Knowles was born in Elmira, New York where she was swept away in a whirlwind to the Land of Oz--Independence, Kansas. Her parents were relocating for working opportunities and decided that this would be the perfect place to start new roots. Little did she know that this place would contribute to the inspiration for the first book she wrote in her Rylee Everley Series.
While growing up, S.M. would travel the roads around her house while imagining she was somewhere else. Her imagination would take her everywhere, making the long hot summer days seem shorter throughout her fantasies.
At the age of twelve, she decided to write her first book. Filled mostly with dialog, she filled up one-hundred pages, front and back. After taking the book downstairs to show her mom, and persuading her to buy her more paper, she excitedly ran back to her room. As she barreled through the door, S.M. tripped over items left on her floor, and her papers came raining down in her room. Discouraged, she stood there in tears, picking up her papers and throwing them in the trash. Her work had no organization, no numbers on her pages, just a child fulfilling a joy that she would put down and not pick up again.
When she became older, she joined the military for something different. In that time, she was able to explore many places and even met her husband in Iraq. After coming home, she started her family in Arizona and went back to school, earning a Master's degree in Adult Education and Training.
