The Last Rising

The Last Rising - Rachel Firasek I picked this book up because of the egyptian mythology background theme, which is quite unusual. And the idea was indeed intriguing though the author only sparingly departs with more information throughout the story. That's on of the things I wasn't so happy with. First of all this book is a love story. A guy falls in love with his son's teacher. This teacher is an ancient egyptian goddess forced to save the life of some special humans. She doesn't ever get involved with anyone. Especially with man with small sons.
But this time everything is different and maybe she should trust her feelings?
Ice is extremely vulnerable and insecure and at the same time very lonely and is clearly attracted to Turner. Turner himself is a single parent, trying to fit work and his kid in his life.
I'm really sorry but this book didn't work out for me. It's not written badly, the story is interesting, I like the main characters, but something just wasn't right. Maybe it's just not my cup of tea?
I liked the idea of these to people growing together, building a family. The supporting characters, especially the other phoenixes, weren't developed very well and kind of annoying. You got to know a bit about them but not enough to make them interesting.
Overall I don;t know what to say because the book wasn't bad but it wasn't great either.
