she may never get to tell the story - Destiny Calls (The Phoenix Rising #1) by Phenice Arielle

"This book is beautifully written, descriptive, and captivating. The backdrop for this story is painted in such a way that you feel as if you are there. [...] The romance is effortless. It was heartbreaking, heart-pounding, action-packed, heartfelt, and moving. The camaraderie between the characters was particularly warming. There is strength in this story. There aren't many stories like this out there, that's what makes it so special." Jazmen, Goodreads


College student Kay Morowa goes up against warlords, poachers and human traffickers in The Phoenix Rising – Destiny Calls.

After Kay’s parents reveal that they haven’t been honest with her about her past, Kay flies to South Africa feeling bitter and anxious. Her excitement on arrival is cut short when she becomes a victim of a human trafficking ring operated by a large-scale poaching operation.

Kay flees and finds her way to a dazzling refuge called Ipharadisi. There, she meets the majestic, menacing Queen Zaina and a handsome doctor named Erec.

Although impressed by Ipharadisi’s beauty and noble reason for existence, Kay’s sole desire is to return home to her college beau (whom she has much-unsettled business with) and to her mom and dad, whom Kay never thought she could miss so much.

If Kay can survive the hand-to-hand combat she’ll need to learn to survive, she may just become the kind of peace-seeking hero her classmates would never believe. However, Kay may never get to tell the story if she can’t find her way home, or if she is forced to stay, or worse, if in doing either, Kay dies.
