The Rise of the Phoenix (A Society Novel) by Mason Sabre
Cast out by his own family after a wolf’s bite infects him, a young thirteen-year-old boy is forced to roam the streets and fend for himself. In a world of Humans and Others, he belongs to neither. No longer considered Human, but nor a purebred Other, a race of powerful supernatural beings, he will be unwanted and hunted by both. Danger lurks at every turn. Young, vulnerable and afraid, he tries to come to terms with the physical changes taking place in him while at the same time trying to find a way to survive. In a menacing world filled with threats and hate, is there any hope of salvation for this orphaned fledgling?
Please note, this is a Society Short.
If you're really looking to read something that is emotionally alluring and well written, but do not have the time, this is the story for you! It's not a romance and it is very much a tragedy told from a young boy's point of view as his life is altered by one poor choice any kid in his position might have made. The author captured a young teenagers reasoning skills perfectly and adeptly portrayed cause and effects patterns that reflects back to the horrible characteristics of own modern society. There is bullying, abuse, and manipulation involved. And of course, fear or childish curiosity of the unknown. I look forward to finding out where the story leads and I'll definitely be reading more by this author. 5 Stars!
