Phoenix Island

Phoenix IslandPhoenix Island by John Dixon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dixon has crafted an exciting action-adventure novel flavored with just a hint of science fiction (in the form of nanotech-created super soldiers). What makes PHOENIX ISLAND stand out from the rest of the good kids vs. bad adults YA field is the authenticity Dixon brings, especially when it comes to the art of boxing and to boot camp life. Despite a few slow spots in the first half, Dixon leaves the reader breathless by the final pages, and the ending is both satisfying and open-ended. It’ll be interesting to see where this series goes next. PHOENIX ISLAND is marketed for younger readers, but adults will be just as eager to keep turning the pages.
