"You know, I… this is going to sound insensitive, but I'm glad you got murdered, that day on the subway. I can't imagine my life without you. I don't want to. I'm really badly in love with you."
Amory has burned for his Soyer, and now, Amory is no longer what he was, no longer human. He has come to embrace both his change and the overprotective Soyer.
While Amory finds his footing in the supernatural world he is now a part of, things are not easy when you fall in love with a notorious witch hunter and assassin. Soyer’s past is looming, and to make matters more complicated, so is Amory’s birth family.
Dangers start encroaching on the both of them, and while Amory and Soyer are determined to hold on to one another, those who wish them harm want them apart. Will Amory and Soyer overcome their enemies unscathed?
Content warnings: violence, torture; allusions to conversion therapy and domestic abuse (side characters). Readers may find this book, outside of the main couple’s relationship, somewhat darker than the first.

“You are, by and large, the first really good thing that has come my way. You are better than I deserve.”
“No, let me finish, and don’t you dare argue. Don’t you f-ing dare say I’m saying this because I am emotional, or I will use my emotional blackmail skills to feed you all those dumplings. I don’t want to get a witch blade through the heart, because I have you now, and you are all this perfection.”
My god can Alexa Piper write and amazing story. Each word is carefully crafted to create a unique world where her characters can find love, but truly do suffer on their way to it.
As the Moonlight Diner becomes even more pivotal in the Phoenix Immortal series, Moonlight Phoenixes is the map of Soyer and Amory’s continuing journey through magic and found family, vampires and assassins, and when on the correct path, love.
