Prologue

For as long as I could remember, I have always been a secret. A secret to the world…even my neighbours knew little of me. My parents hid me from this terrifying earth, and they were very diligent about it.

Whoever found out about me and my secrets were executed. There was never any questioning about it. I didn’t know who to be more frightened of. This world or my parents…

My mother’s beautiful big brown eyes were warm and pleasant. She seemed so inviting as her brown hair waved down her back, but her eyes could turn colder than any winter I had experienced. I had watched her kill so many people, that any loving bond I had for her turned to rot. I watched her shoot people between the eyes as they stood before me, and making me do the most unspeakable acts. These people had lives and families. Once they discovered me, purposely or accidental, their fate was sealed by my mother.

My father didn’t look warm like her, he looked evil. He wasn’t the kind of father a little girl would run to. His scary eyes… almost black, and his blond hair slicked back. He looked menacing as his empty eyes always looked for the next threat.

They homeschooled me, of course. I wasn’t trusted among regular people, and my parents didn’t trust people with me. I was smart but my parents didn’t push education on me; they pushed defence training. My fighting skills were mastered, they trained me to kill and to protect myself. They were making me like them, and as years passed, I became numb to the havoc. Their executions made my body ooze with guilt, and I forgot how to flinch when the gun went off.

My situation was different, they would say. Sure, different…

I couldn’t be different because my eyes were a mix of violet and blue, or that they named me Phoenix. No, of course not. I was a freak of nature because my blood wasn’t red, it was dark blue.
And for them I was the greatest gift that would never be shared.

labiixlabii: Great flow. Very touching and heart felt story

DemonHunter: I liked the story line, I feel like the chapters could have been longer. Spaced the entire story out longer. I love the drama between them and the crazy ex. I feel like the story should be in either first person or third person, not in both. I know this is an ebook, but why not make the book long...

Bureche: Lovely story as always.The ending is a bit abrupt and somehow rushed. Otherwise, the story development up until the later chapters was wonderful.Still, a good dose of a cute ever after.
