Reviews for Hell's Phoenix
5 out of 5 from Kathryn Grimes:
" WOW!! Another fantastic book by Gracen Miller that has BLOWN me away!!
From start to finish, Hell's Phoenix demands that you devour each and every page. The emotions that you feel for these characters will be a rollercoaster ride and when you are finished you will feel like you have just run a marathon.
Hell's Phoenix leaves you panting from all the dynamic action, steamy sex, twisted emotions, and of course, some "HOLY CRAP...did that just happen!" moments. Being able to learn so much more about Nix and his journey through hell and finding out if he comes through it or not, and if he is even sane at the end of this book is gut-wrenching. Not only are we learning about Nix, we get to see more of Micah and how the King of Hell actually rules his kingdom! And of course, Mads is right there in front handling it all, taking on the situation at hand, and being the heroine that she is! Want to know more about Zen, well guess what?, LOTS more info about him too and we get to see just how powerful he can be!!
Gracen Miller weaves a tale of wicked naughtiness with gut-wrenching decisions that leaves the reader gasping for air as the final page is turned. Be ready to sit down and not get up because YOU WILL NOT be able to put this book down for anything!!
A DEFINITE MUST READ!!"
5 out of 5 from Shelley Bunnell:
"It's been a few hours since I finished reading my copy of Hell's Phoenix and I still haven't been able to wrap my head around this mind blowing, hella sexy rollcoaster ride Gracen has thrust upon me. I am so emotionally invested in these characters, to see them endure heartbreak, humiliation, any type of pain and misery puts me in a state of unrest. I'll tell you right now...I got very little rest while reading...and contemplating this little beaut.
I was shocked, thrilled and amazed to the extent of my heart nearly exploding out of my chest and my grey eyes having lost the ability to produce more tears of joy and pain. At times I was left distract. I chanted, "How could Gracen do that to us?" More than a few times. Ha!
If you're not familiar with Gracen's style and personality...well, let me tell just say...SHE HAS NO PROBLEM PUTTING US ALL THROUGH HELL! But she does it with skill and finese and whole lot of smoulder. Hell, it's hotter than a 5 alarm fire...ok, maybe hotter than Hell itself.
HP shows us a side of Nix Birmingham we thought we'd never see...lost, cold, dark and downright evil...and he's never been hotter. Micah is well, Micah. The sexiest demon I've come across yet. Very little he does surprises me, he is a King of Hell after all. But, I think some of his actions will surprise most everyone this time around. Zen gets more intriguing. Amos continues to grow and amaze everyone around him. And Madison? She gets more kick ass by the minute.
Just about the time you settle in and get comfy with the situation, Gracen flips the switch and sends you on another wild ride. Hell's Phoenix gives us a more intimate look at familiar friends and foes. It also introduces us to fascinating new characters. One which had me immediately enthralled.
As up and down as Madison and Nix's world is, Gracen weaves through it so seamlessly you never see what's coming in the end. I guarantee it.
I was completely entranced by the storytelling. It's the stuff from which dark fairy tales and urban legends spring forth. It's epic. At times poetic. And always, always brilliant. Hell's Phoenix soars out of the ashes and off the charts."
5 out of 5 by Andie Kozari:
"I'm pretty sure I have a Lynx (A unique and very powerful breed of succubus) living inside me and it's desperately craving for the third book. Actually, it's demanding it, and I'm not sure I'm able to hold it back... Hell! What the heck I'm sayin'?? It's already took control over me and I'm suffering withdrawal.
Hell's Phoenix is the second instalment of the Road To Hell series. I LOVED the prequel and the first book, but THIS was EPIC! Maybe I should duplicate my FIVE STARS rating, because if any book deservers TEN stars, then it's sure as hell this one does. We have the chance to dig deeper into the RTH world this time. So deep, that we reached Hell... literally. Madison intended to save Nix from Hell, had a good plan - okay, maybe not THAT good, but it was a plan after all -, and nothing goes as she planned. But at least she managed to get into her husband's, Micah's realm to fulfil her quest.
The description of Hell was CREEPY but awesome. I'm sure I wouldn't go there willingly if there wasn't a Micah... This book contains several breathtaking scenes, maybe sometimes you will even cry -I almost did and I never cry!!- And good news for adrenaline junkies, there is absolutely no lack of action in this book.
Some of the characters changed A LOT! Starting with our cheeky, a little bit arrogant and irresistible (well I Can resist him, thanks to Micah!) hero, Phoenix Birmingham. In fact, every word is still true about him, except the HERO part. Revenge. That is what turns him to the Dark side. And then there's Micah... oh my Love! I'm not sure he actually changed, but we get to see a new side (I always knew he has a sweet side too - OMG did I just say THAT?? Hope he didn't hear it...) of him. However, don't expect a 180 degree turn from him. He is still the big misunderstood player like he was before, but you might will get to love him a bit more now. Madison. What could I say about her? She's still awesome and strong and some choices she makes show exactly how strong really she is. Zen, Oh Zenny. He has definitely changed too. The question is, will he be capable of take Madison down when it's truly necessarily- just as easily as he says? Alessa is FUN to read. Nix's Lucky is a hilarious but smart character, I just love her. There's a bunch of new, interesting characters, like the Kings of Hell or Madison's new allies, who are quite bad-asses if you ask me.
OVERALL: This is an Epic sequel in an amazing series from a really talented and naughty author. Thrilling, heartbreaking and sometimes funny. Featured with some of the most realistic and well-built characters I have ever read. Hell's Phoenix is absolutely a one-way ticket to the RTH world. Once you got in, you will not want to get out."

An Interview with the Gracen Miller
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Gracen, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is the second in your Road to Hell series.
GM: Thanks for having me at TRS! Yes, Hell’s Phoenix, is the second book in my Road to Hell series.
HH: First, what you can tell us about this tremendous series?
GM: It’s a rocky ride with lots of unexpected twists and turns. Just when you think you’ve settled into the story, another complication or crisis is thrown at the reader.
HH: How do Madison's Life Lessons and Pandora's Box kick off the series?
GM: Madison’s Life Lessons is about Madison’s life as a teenager and the struggles she faces. A mysterious man who charms her into marriage, and then leaves her two years after the birth of their son, only to discover her husband never existed. Pandora’s Box is more about discovering who she is, what her son is and how her husband fits into everything. And how far she’ll go to protect and save her son.
HH: How does Hell's Phoenix continue it?
GM: Hell’s Phoenix is about Madison accepting her fate and facing it head on to save the one man that sacrificed everything for her.
HH: How did you go about creating the world their story takes place in?
GM: Lots of meditation and creativity.
HH: What will readers like about Madison, Nix and Micah?
GM:Madison’s strength and her devotion to her son make her relatable. Micah is an irresistible, cunning and powerful bad boy that believes only losers play fair. Nix is jaded, resourceful, loyal, and loves too hard.
HH: What can you tell us about the books to come in this series?
GM: At the moment, only one more is planned and that is Genesis Queen. Since it’s a work in progress, things may change, but it will put to rest the direction Madison will take with the destiny that’s been handed to her…will she use it for good or evil?
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
GM: I have a completed book in a new series—the Kiss series—and I’m halfway through the second book in this series. It is a cross between paranormal/horromance. It’s not as graphic in the horror aspect as the Road to Hell series. Each book in the Kiss series will be a standalone novel.
HH: What sources of inspiration do you draw from for ideas?
GM: Everyday life. Bizarre comments lead to unbelievable moments of story line clarity that rarely have a whole lot to do with the remark. Inspiration is unpredictable.
HH: What's your favorite book so far in 2012?
GM: That’s a tough one because I haven’t read too much in 2012 and I’m guessing I can’t say one of my own books. So, I’m going to go with Lothaire by Kresley Cole.
HH: What are you most looking forward to in 2012?
GM: Proving the world isn’t going to end on December 21, 2012. Crazy, eh? I’m so weary of the “sky is falling” mindset and I can’t wait to say “I told you so!”
HH: Thank you!
