Amazon gift card & author SF Said's "Phoenix" [giveaway]

Young Star Wars fans seeking another saga to love can look to this epic middle-grade adventure, Phoenix, from author SF Said. Phoenix is illustrated by Dave McKean with remarkable white-on-black spacescapes.

SF Said is an award-winning author living in London since he was 2 years old. He wrote his first novel, Varjak Paw, in 2003, while working as a speechwriter for the Crown Prince of Jordan.

I discovered SF Said on Twitter when I was searching for content about The Little Prince, a children's book I recently finished and have sort of become obsessed with. The book is one of his favorites too.

Phoenix is SF Said's third book. It's about a boy with unprecedented power who must turn to the terrifying Alien enemies of humanity to discover his true nature and bring peace to a galaxy at war. The Daily Mail gave the book praise, which is nothing to sneeze at.

"Fabulous, high-octane stuff, with an uplifting ending, stunningly illustrated by the brilliant McKean" – The Daily Mail

Lucky lives a relatively normal life on a remote moon of the planet Aries One, safe from the turmoil and devastation of the interstellar war between Humans and Aliens. Lucky has seen images of the horned, cloven-hooved Aliens before, but he’s never seen one up close.

Then one night, he dreams that the stars are singing to him—and wakes to evidence suggesting that he is not so normal after all.

When Lucky’s mother sacrifices herself to help him escape an elite Human military force called the Shadow Guards, he must rely on the Alien crew of a ramshackle starship, where he finds that humanity’s deadly enemies seem surprisingly Human up close.

In fact, they may be more Human than Lucky himself, who has a dangerous power that could change the course of the war and the fate of the galaxy—if he can learn how to use it.
