I bought your first book Soulshadow at the Norfolk Christmas Food and Gift Show on Sunday, took me only a few days to read it, couldn't put it down (this is always a problem if you like to have a read before sleep, had a few late nights!) I have just purchased Ushered, so looking forward to receiving it. Well done and keep up the good work!

I found that the story as a whole works well & moves along a fair old trot.I thought that in some parts the book was well written and convincing.
On a more negative note I would have liked a bit more of a "legend" surrounding some of the characters and found some of their reactions a bit robotic/automatic. I also think the the plot could have been improved with some more characters (perhaps a baffled copper ?).
To conclude - well worth a read and Craig Phoenix has potential as an author , I have a copy of Ushered & am looking forward to reading it & am hoping that Craig has addressed some of the short-comings in Soulshadow.
A good first novel with room for improvement as you mature as a writer.

Craig is a very skillfull story teller and all his books convey his passion for this artform. Although individually written they all carry the sense of intrigue, suspense and thrill within. Definete recommendation to anyone who is thinking of buying one! Great work Mr. Pheonix

Soulshadow has the most amazing plot. I found the storyline gripping and exciting and was not able to anticipate or work out the climax. Craig Pheonix is a very imaginative and original writer.
Chris

A thoroughly good read from start to finish. The twists and turns in each book keep you hooked from chapter to chapter. I recommend any of these books, they all make perfect Sunday evening reading!
James

Although this genre of books is not my usual read, when I was given them, I found both Ushered and Soul Shadow compelling. I have not, as yet, read Shelbourne but I have got it and plan to read it on my holiday in a couple of weeks time.

Craig has introduced me to a new genre of books and I am looking forward to reading Toby: Thyme Cottage. If the others are anything to go by I won't be able to put it down.
