Description:

My parents were brutally murdered when I was five years old. Their killer has spent the last twenty five years in prison for his terrible crimes - but I still have unanswered questions. After all, I am the phoenix. When I die, I am reborn in fire and brimstone. It happens again and again and again. I have no idea where my strange ability came from and nobody to ask.

Now another shocking murder has been committed in the small village where my parents died and there is evidence which suggests the killer is supernatural. The crime gives me the perfect reason to return to my childhood home. I can offer my expertise as a Supe Squad detective - and seek the truth behind what I really am.

The trouble is that I might not like what I find.

Review:

I got this from the KU Library.

This starts with Emma finding out about a murder in the small village where she was born and her parents were murdered and her boss giving her "holiday time" to go and investigate it as there are suspicions of a supe being involved. 

I'm not going to go into more detail than that because a lot happens and it would ruin it for future readers.

On one hand, I was intrigued by finding out more about Emma and what happened to her and her family all those years ago. On the other, I kinda missed the craziness of London and all of the usual team and cast of characters. Even Lukas is only in half the book. 

I'm kinda torn in my feelings for this one. I liked it but it didn't grab me like the previous books. I do believe it had something to do with the usual cast of characters not being in the book, as mentioned above. 

As for the who the bad guy was. Well, I didn't see it coming initially but towards the end I knew that that person was just always in the right place at the right time somehow. I'll admit it was well thought out and I, once again, tip my hat to the author for her vivid imagination.

I will be reading more of this series in the future.
