Book Review: The First Dawn by Victoria J. Price @victoria_jprice@lovebooksgroup#lovebookstours

The First Dawn by Victoria J. Price is the final instalment in The Daughter of the Phoenix series and I’m sharing my review as part of the Love Books Tours blog tour, many thanks to Kelly and the author for the gifted ebook.

About the book

A world on the brink of collapse, and only the fire mother can save it.

Eighteen-year-old Fia Aldridge was just an ordinary Londoner a few months ago. Now she’s trapped in another world, separated from the friends she was trying to save, with no idea if the angel she loves is alive or dead.

Held captive alongside her adversary, Lorn, Fia is acutely aware that every moment that passes is a moment Ohinyan doesn’t have. Only the fire mother can reignite Ohinyan’s dying sun, and Erebus, the ancient darkness that imprisoned them has no idea which of them it could be—only that he needs the fire mother.

Determined to escape Erebus, working with Lorn is the only way Fia can hope to return home. The fate of Ohinyan rests in their hands.

My thoughts

I’ve really enjoyed reading this trilogy and after the cliffhanger I was left on with book 2, The Eternal Flame, I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next.

Things pretty much picked up where book 2 ended so thankfully I didn’t have to wait to find out what happened and although the first few chapters are slowish things picked up quickly and we were off into what I would say is a whirlwind of a story.

I love the world Victoria has created in these books and I’ve loved getting to know Ohinyan and it’s residents, they’re all quite weird but wonderful.

We’re given 3 pov’s in this book, Fia, Alexander and Lorn and it was nice to read each ones feelings or thoughts. Each chapter is from a different point of view so we would leave Fia on a cliffhanger for example and then go to Alexander and sometimes Lorn before finding out what was happening to Fia which had me on the edge of my seat at times.

The tension mounts up throughout the book until we come to quite a satisfying ending. There’s some curve balls thrown in so it’s definitely a page turner and keeps you on your toes.

I’m quite sad my journey with Fia and Alexander is over, this has been a great trilogy with each book pulling me into its world more and more.

I’m looking forward to seeing what else Victoria J. Price has up her sleeve.
