Phoenica Rising: Keeper of Light

image description

An intuitive girl called Phoenica (Feen-ica) moves to the west of Ireland where she meets her Psychic Grandmother. They accidentally discover the mystical world of Juna and Phoenica learns that an alien race of light suckers called Graydens, have invaded and taken the young Juna to be their slaves.

Phoenica aligns forces with a tree guardian, a fearsome faerie warrior and an Earth Angel. Together they must cross the golden river, overcome Grayden mists, fight off vicious pygmy shrews, climb the caves of Nadu and locate the gentle Juna tribe.

On her journey, she crosses paths with a mysterious stranger and finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. But first she must learn to fight the Graydens and their savage hybrid creatures.

Can Phoenica find the courage to save Juna, fall in love and claim her birthright? Or will the light hungry Graydens plunge all that she knows into darkness?




What people are saying...

"Phoenica Rising (Keeper of Light) by Caroline Quigley is a young adult epic fantasy novel that would appeal most to an audience of young adult female readers who enjoy heroines that go on adventures in a magical world. Phoenica moves to West Ireland where she meets her psychic grandmother; that first meeting sets young Phoenica on the path to discover the mystical world of Juna. This discovery leads to Phoenica gathering friends and allies to join her in the fight against those that have enslaved the people of Juna. Does Phoenica have what it takes to save the people of Juna and embrace who she was always meant to be?

I was first drawn to Phoenica Rising (Keeper of Light) by Caroline Quigley because of the vibrant cover that shows a strong woman ready and willing to rise and become a heroine. I really liked how the book began during Phoenica’s childhood as it allowed me to watch as she developed from a child, who was practically mentored by Mother Nature, to the person willing to fight for the people of Juna. Phoenica was more than the typical heroine as she was not a bloodthirsty warrior, but a compassionate girl, not willing to look the other way as people were enslaved by the Graydens. The Graydens made for the perfect villains of the novel as they were developed enough to be antagonists that were easy enough to dislike, yet the author did not develop them enough to take the focus off Phoenica. Overall, I was beyond impressed with Phoenica and I really wish I could have read this book when I was in middle school as it would have been one of my all-time favorites!"
