    Hey Chris, do you have an ACTUAL Date for this release? Thanks SO Much!
    I have a few questions:
    1. Were is Phoenix? In Australia?
    2. Where is Jordan from? And what is her skin colour?
    3. I read ALL the 5 books out yet TWICE. Is there anyway to explain that whole Wall thing? I read it a BILLION Times but I still don’t understand.
    4. If they were OUTSIDE the Wall, how did they go down that very long bike path and get outside of Phoenix?

    Thanks, BEST SERIES EVER!

      1. Yes, Phoenix is in Australia. 2. Jordan is from somewhere in the Pacific Islands and she has dark skin. 3/4. The wall runs in a big circle around the outside of Phoenix. In Arrival, when they ride out to the wall, the go from the middle of that circle to the edge, and then look back INSIDE and see the town.

        Somewhere in the middle! (The descriptions are deliberately written so that it’s impossible to pinpoint an exact location.)

      • Alec

        So Phoenix is a real place in Australia? Haha

        Is this based on a true story? Ahaha

    Hi Chris, what bookstores can I find the phoenix files series in?

    Reply
    • Chris Morphew

      It should be available in most bookstores. If not, ask at the counter and they’ll order it in for you.

    Hi Chris, the one thing that I don’t understand about the books is how the people didn’t see that phoenix was surrounded by concrete and a desert when the flew over?

      Re-read Arrival. The helicopter windows were blacked out, so they couldn’t see out of them

      Read fallout carefully (towards the end) ~ it explains!

      • Will Laverty

        It’s in book 5, Bill is actually Peter so he has to make the past the same so he hacks the shackleton website thingy and adds lukes and his mums name in it which is why. Kinda hard to explain…

      Absolutely! I’ve got about 6 or 7 other ideas for a whole bunch of different things. It’s just a matter of figuring out what to do first!

    Would you be able to tell me what genre they are or would that be giving to much away!
    I think I should probably stop asking questions :P

      Haha, well they’re all different, but I guess they’re mostly somewhere in the same sort of sci-fi/action/mystery genre as The Phoenix Files.

    You know Chris, after the last book of the Phoenix Files(doomsday) can you like make more Phoenix files books, since I `m a young adult reader I want to find out like if Calvin and Noah Shackleton want to get revenge on Peter, Luke and Jordan…
    Thanks for answering this question.

    thanks!!!!!

    • Chris Morphew

      Yes, the last book should be available in Adelaide now! If your local bookstore doesn’t have it, I’m sure they’d be happy to order it in for you!

    Hey Chris! Or Mr Morphew haha, whatever u prefer, I have really enjoyed reading your books one by one they have been a great inspiration for me as I LOVE writing stories and have decided I am going to start one on an trip to HK in June. I live in Australia, lucky for me because we get the book first, and my friend posted a picture on Instagram the other day holding the book and I couldn’t believe it! My birthday is on Tuesday and I’m really hoping for it as a gift but I would never ask for it because well….I find it rude to ask for gifts. I can’t wait to read it no matter how long it takes me to get a hold of it but I have recommended it to everyone person I have met and I’m in year 7 now so all my new high school friends have now read it! We all think you are so talented and you have inspired me to start my own books. I was thinking to start off on the same lines but why not start from scratch and see what my Cooky mind comes up with! I can just imagine you as my teacher! You would be the coolest teacher at the school hahaha. Well I would love to read more of your workings! Thanks again for everything, even if I don’t know you personally, you have changed my life completely in the best way possible. <3

  28. A big fan...

    (I hope you read this because I’m not on Facebook and Twitter and it’s the only way I can say this)

    Anyway, thanks for writing the Phoenix Files series!!!

    This is one of my top three book series of all time- and just to let you know, I am such an avid reader, that even my top 10 is extremely difficult to make- in other words, you’ve done pretty well (um, that may be an bit of an understatement.)

    (Also, I have to thank you for your writing tips- I enjoy writing myself, and although I don’t know whether I’d make a career out of it when I’m older, writing stories happens to be one of my hobbies- albeit, one of my more hush-hush ones- and your tips have really helped me out.)

    However, I just have to ask you- what happens now to Luke, Jordan, Reece, Tobias, the Weirs and every other character? It’s kept me up at night wondering how they’re all doing after the events in Phoenix. Will Luke and Jordan return to their respective towns and cease to see each other? Will they receive medals or something, or will the government keep everything secret and refuse to help anyone with resettling? How are Peter’s parents coping with the loss of their son? What happens now with Dr. Galton? And Tobias- that kid obviously has some kind of super intelligence or immunity or something! What will life be like for him at home and preschool and stuff in general? And what will happen to the town of Phoenix?

    Once more, I loved the Phoenix Files and thank you for giving me something to read the past few years!!!!!!

    • Chris Morphew

      Thanks so much! I do have a few ideas about what may have happened to some of the characters after the end of Doomsday, but I might hold onto them for a bit longer, until everyone’s had a chance to read the book.

    Hi,

    I read the first three books in the series after reading the first together with my son for Reader’s Cup in about 2010. It has taken me till now to get back to the series, and I was happy to find out that the final one has just been released. I hate to stop in the middle. So now I will go back and start the series again, and read straight through. My son is now in Yr 12 and not so interested in youth fiction any more, but I have a 10 year old boy who may be soon. I did find the shift in the first person disorientating the first time round, but an interesting concept.

    Just read Doomsday, and I must say it wasn’t what I was expecting…
    It was a fabulous quick easy read and a great way to end a series.
    But is there any way, any epilogue book we will ever be able to know more about Luke and Jordan’s relationship? (I fell in love with these characters and their confusing relationship) And what happens on the outside afterwards?
    Thanks!

    • Chris Morphew

      Hey Georgia,

      Quite a few people have been asking me for more info on what happens to the characters after the end of Doomsday. I might talk more about this in a month or two, once US and UK readers have had a chance to finish the last book.

    Hi Chris,

    I’m nine years old and have just finished reading Doomsday and I think its
    THE GREATEST PIECE OF LITERATURE IN THE UNIVERSE and I loved the ending.
    P.S
    I’m writing a Sci-Fi short story and it would be cool if you could check it out so heres the link if you want to:

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/qv6kxqvvo133oii/FIVE_UNIVERSES.docx

    I will be updating the file everytime I write another significant part of the book
    P.P.S
    I have been trying to get my fellow nerd friend Oliver to read The Phoenix Files, but he says if I read The Hunger Games then he will read The Phoenix Files
    Also, one more question SPOILER ALERT: after the events of Doomsday is the whole thing kept secret from the world or does everyone on the outside find out.
    thats all for now.

    Hi, just read doomsday and it is amazing! I admit I cried a bit when

    *SPOILER ALERT*

    Tobias ‘died’ :3 Also, in the beginning I got really confused about whose point of view it was, about half way through I saw the names on the chapters XD. I hope that sometime soon you write something explaining what happened to Luke and Jordan after they leave Phoenix

      Hey Connor,

      I won’t 100% rule out writing another Phoenix Files one day, but at the moment I don’t think it will happen. I am working on a couple of other projects right now that I think will appeal to Phoenix Files readers.

    Hey guys,
    I kinda don’t want to say too much about what happens after the end of the series – mostly because I haven’t written it and I never really made up any solid answers. I did make this video after Doomsday was released, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tE1PrMvpDYE
