Daphne and the Silver Ash - Joss Llewelyn

Synopsis - In the weary old city of Trevell, young Daphne happily divides her time between caring for her family and crafting the finest shoes in town. But when she is summoned to sing for a panicking phoenix afraid of its fiery rebirth, Daphne is swept up in a thousand-year-old struggle for survival between immortal spirits.

Endowed with the phoenix's powers of air and fire, as well as the creature's beautiful golden skin and ruby feathers, Daphne has only a few hours to save a dying tree, restore a crumbling city, and stop an invading army before the phoenix's fire consumes her mortal heart.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Review - I won this e-book from LibraryThing Members Giveaways. This book is a short story consisting of only 105 pages.  However, it was a fun read.  Full of fantasy, myth, adventure and an almost historical element. It kept me going and is a story that would appeal to all ages.  Joss Llewelyn is an established author of science fiction and historical fantasy novels under the nom de plume Joseph Robert Lewis.  3*
