Tori was a strong and amazing main character. She knew how to fight, carry herself and was an overall great character! I loved Takumi! He was very clever and I'm sure very cute too. How cool would it be to have your own fox! I also quite liked Bramwell, he was though and concerned about those he cared about. Aurora, Wrena, Azalea, Logan and Theo were also great characters that I liked!
I found the plot really intriguing and exciting. It was fast paced, had some romance and was well written in a way that just drew me in for hours. The illustrations in the book were also nice. I enjoyed reading Phoenix Descending and I'm looking forward to the sequel. I would recommend Phoenix Descending to fans of fantasy!
