A fantastic fantasy read for both children and adults! Logan peers into the wardrobe mirror and notices that the phoenix bird symbol on his collar is glowing fiery orange. That night, Logan is transported through his dream to a medieval land of enchanted forests, castles, and dragons. There, he meets a beautiful greyhound named Tess and learns of the 500-year-old mystery of the phoenix! Tess and Logan discover, through King Hywel’s book of secrets, that the phoenix is their only hope of saving the kingdom from certain doom. Can they find Logan’s old wizard friend, who can help decipher the code in the secret book, before a terrifying black mist engulfs the entire kingdom? *Contains illustrations, historical chapters, and educational projects at the end for children to expand their vocabulary and critical thinking skills.

What I thought:

I love the Logan series! I think this was actually my favorite one (so far). I, as an adult, enjoy reading and seeing what kind of adventures Logan’s collar will take him on. I also enjoy reading these with my kids and seeing them enjoy the story. Plus they are educational, because they teach historical events as well as teaching about greyhound dogs.

In this book, Logan goes back in time to an ancient kingdom and we learn about the mystery of the Phoenix. I think what I love most about the Logan books, besides their educational factor, is the narrator is an animal. I think that really resonates well with children.

I look forward to many more books in this series from Suzanne Burke!

I give this one 5 stars.
