About the Series: The Phoenix Conspiracy
A complex space opera of betrayal, conspiracy, political gamesmanship, war, dangers that threaten billions, poisonous ambition, thick clouds of grey uncertainty, and a charismatic and intrepid crew of young, expertly trained spies to do the impossible and make sense of it all--and save humanity--or die in the effort. Meanwhile the cunning chess-players and their gambits leave you guessing whom to trust and who is manipulating who, all while betrayal and blood mar the stars themselves.

This is the third book in The Phoenix Conspiracy series. I am hooked on it because of the strong blend of science-fiction/mystery and the straight-forward writing style.

Captain Calvin Cross of the renegade stealth ship, the Nighthawk, is torn between choosing a meeting with Raidan of the obscure Organisation or Princess Kalila, and he can only choose one of them because the rendezvous for each meeting is too far apart. Both profess to have vital information that needs to be divulged to Calvin personally.

The Phoenix Crisis ventures outside of the comfort zone of the Nighthawk and successfully manages to keep the plot structure consistent. I initially wasn’t very interested in the new characters: Zane, Blackmoth, or the other characters of the Phoenix Ring. However, their parts in the overall story grew in significance and did recapture my imagination. And although I think Captain Nimoux’s deductions are a bit too coincidental, I do like the idea of a renowned intelligence operative and wanted him in more after his last scene. Despite these minor flaws, I was enthralled to see a reopening of thrilling action scenes and complex sub-investigations that relate to ships in the previous stories. The final four or five chapters are nothing short of sensational, and are very well written. The darker element in this series continues to return, which I also like.

Overall, this third book is a tremendous continuation of the series, and rounds up the factions and plots very clearly. The mystery, action, realistic characters, and excitement make this series a must for science-fiction space-opera fans. I will be reading The Phoenix War!

A real page turner. I literally could not put it down. The protagonist was really well done, with significant flaws but strong character.

Excellent read. After reading the 2nd book and having it end in basically a cliffhanger, I had to have the 3rd book. Characters are developed and this whole series is going on my "must read science fiction" list to recommend to friends. I can't wait for the 4th book. I read this entire book in a matter of a week because it was that good. :)

Keep up the great work Richard! *eagerly awaiting the next book*
