Any Given Doomsday (The Phoenix Chronicles) by Lori Handeland

I received this ARC (advance reading copy) in the mail from the publisher. I guess I signed up to receive it, I’m not sure.

The book was pretty good. It was slow at first, with the setting be a very small, unimpressive town. The main character Elizabeth Phoenix is a psychic. She is also an orphan who lived with Aunt Ruthie. The beginning starts with Elizabeth getting a “calling” to see Ruthie ASAP. She arrives at her house to find Ruthie on the floor of the kitchen bleeding, and dying. Ruthie touches her and Elizabeth drifts into darkness.

She wakes up in the hospital four days later, with the local detectives sitting in her room waiting to question her on the murder. They want to know if she knows where Jimmy is. Jimmy just so happens to be Elizabeth’s ex that she’s still in love with. The detectives leave with no information.

Jimmy wakes out of the bathroom shortly after they leave. Elizabeth questions Jimmy’s involvement. He disappears after awhile.

The whole plot of this story is very complex. What happens next is a series of events that lead to Elizabeth and Jimmy traveling to a skinwalker named Sawyer. They battle evil forces to prove Jimmy’s innocence in Ruthie’s death.

Overall, I think it was a very good book. I think the ending was very well wrapped up and I don’t have a pulling urge to read the next book in the series.

This book’s release date is November 4, 2008.

8/10!
