“C.A. Nicholas’s magnum opus symphony is about to begin and he’s reserved a seat for you. So come on in and I’ll lead you to your place of honour as the house lights dim. Yes, your spot is beside the maestro as he teleports you and he through various worlds to befriend diverse souls who’ll reveal the beauty of your life through their stories.”
I enjoyed this read for a number of reasons, I adored the authors poetic style of writing, the metaphors and imagination were exactly what I felt they should be. I liked that it was a bunch of shorter stories that focused on a plethora of different topics. The fantasy factor was spot on and I appreciated the journey going through it. It was a harder book to keep track of if that makes sense. I found myself having to go back and reread passages because I was a little lost momentarily. The injections of life issues like PTSD, depression, anxiety etc made this book all the more meaningful for me, with that being said, I give Cycles of the Phoenix a solid 4 stars.
