First of all, and this is REALLY IMPORTANT, do NOT read Phoenix until AFTER you have read the other three books in the series. It will make a HUGE difference in what you get out of this novel. As a fan, I would get really excited when I recognized characters from the other books making cameos.
You don't really get as much character depth as you do in the other storylines, but this book adds an incredible depth to the series as a whole. It is actually quite heart-wrenching, and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series, having this new insight added to Dulaney's zombie apocalypse.
I will warn readers that the beginning build-up is a bit slow, and the zombie action doesn't really get under way until much later in the book, but I feel that this is a must-read for fans of the series.
