Author: Alex Gates
Genre: Fantasy; Paranormal; Supernatural; Werewolves; Witches
Publication Date: February 19, 2024

Doryan Miller's life takes an otherworldly turn when he finds himself joining a team of supernatural misfits.

Meet Doryan, a man with the strange gift of chatting with the dearly departed. For most of his life, the dead have kept him company as he wandered across the country. But then, without warning, he's thrust into a world where werewolves roam and ancient magic exists.

He's recruited by Project Phoenix, a secret squad of individuals led by the enigmatic Erik Haller. Their mission? Hunt down things that go bump in the night and keep humanity safe from the forces of darkness… but their first gig is no simple paranormal pest control. They're tracking a werewolf, and this shapeshifter isn't your average furry friend.

As the boundaries between reality and the supernatural blur, it's a race against time for "Project Phoenix." Can they stop the beast before it sinks its claws into more victims?

Hello Fellow Readers,

 I was curious about this book after reading the synopsis. Doryan seems like such an interesting character and his ability to interact with spirits and the Phoenix Project had me immediately picking this up to read. I was glad that I was correct about Doryan. He seems to be a very unique character and individual and the way he handles everything makes him feel real. The other characters were okay. I liked that the 'muscle' Adria was female (although, a little too 'not like other girls' she even mentions how she doesn't get along with them). The plot was okay but I feel like there was just too much crammed into this book, at times it just felt like too much. I know that the first book is a setup for the series but it's okay to slow down and let things progress as the bigger story unfolds.

Overall, an interesting start but a little too jam-packed.
