First installment of the Book of Phoenix series. Get all three parts today!

When Life Falls to Pieces, Answers Lie in the Space Between

After a month-long dance tour overseas, Leni returns to Georgia to care for her great-uncle, only to find him gone, their home empty, and any evidence he ever existed wiped out. All that remains is her truck and a leather-bound book she can't open. Nearly as disturbing, she keeps running into the deaf and dangerously sexy model she'd met in Italy, and no matter how hard she tries to shake him, her soul won't let her.

Jeric has traveled the world in search of a piece of his past for over a year, only to reach a dead-end in Georgia ... in the exact town where the beautiful dancer from Italy lives. He's drawn to her like a moth to a flame, but his life as a loner in his silent world allows no room for girlfriends, and he tries to leave her. Except outside forces won't let him.

When the same "tattoos" suddenly appear on their arms and the book's lock falls open, Leni and Jeric realize there's more between them than physical fascination. They must embark on a journey together to discover their connection to each other and their ties to the Book of Phoenix.

And they must figure it all out fast. Shadowy forms that are more monsters than men are closing in, while their own existences are falling to pieces around them.

This first part of The Book of Phoenix takes you on a heart-wrenching ride as you discover the answers that lie in The Space Between.

Editorial Reviews


"Kristie has done it again! Her Soul Savers series is my favorite by far and yet The Space Between is easily the best book she's ever written! It's dangerous, suspenseful, and smokin' hot." ~ Marissa, Comfortably Read Book Reviews

From the Inside Flap

As soon as he was gone, I could finally breathe again. I connected my iPod to the docking station and turned up the volume, not caring that unlike at the lake, there were people around here. I was done caring about what they thought. In fact, the louder I cranked the music, the better. My body did what it loved to do, twisting and turning, swinging and gyrating to the beat, and my mind did what I loved it to do--lose itself.

I swung around to once again find Jeric standing in the doorway. His eyes smoldered, and his tongue swiped across his lips. Like last time, I froze. He shook his head and held his cell phone against his chest, the screen facing me with a text already typed out: "Don't stop. Ever."

Right. Remembering how he'd reacted last time, I began moving again. He sauntered toward me as his fingers moved over his phone's screen. He held it out for me to read again:

"If I could hear one more time for only a minute, it would be right now, to hear the music that makes your body move in that way."

3.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative- but not for me July 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was so excited to check out this paranormal romance. I've loved Kristie Cook's previous work because of the originality she achieves. I went into this book with high expectations mostly because of the incredible reviews it has gotten so far, and the fact I've loved this writers previous work. I'm quite sad to say, it just didn't do it for me. I know the majority of readers loved this book, and I'm happy to hear that and see the positive reviews, it just wasn't for me. The only thing I hate worse than a book virgin in her 20s is a book virgin that hooks up with a man slut (whom has no morals at all sexually and will sleep with anyone who offers, which he did repeatedly in this book). And of course, the book virgin always has to make the man slut turn over a new leaf and become this great person/soul mate etc. It's just a concept I find ridiculous and that has been overdone. Also, the other thing I didn't like, was pretty much hearing similar stories repeated throughout. I've never been a fan of stories that go from past to present from one chapter to the next.

How much did I pay: .99
Was it worth it: I think I got my .99 worth even tho it was just an ok read for me
Will I recommend: probably not
Will I read more in series: no

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Lord Jeric March 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The moment I fell in love with Jeric was when the moment I found out he had nipple piercings and tattoos, yep not caring what type of person he was or anything of the kind the tattoos did me in. In this review I thought I'd try something a little bit different, breaking down the relationship of Jeric and Leni and the type of people they are, why because I've got some AMAZEBALL quotes that I loved and had me entertained! So Jeric has issues but he's totally caring, "You're okay?" he finally signed, and I nodded hesitantly, still unsure of him. "You looked like you were being attacked, the way your fists were flying, but I didn't see anyone otherwise, I would have pounded them." He's cocky, "I don't do girlfriends, unless they're someone else's." And yet at the same time honest, "Sure, I respect those women who want a boyfriend by staying away from them. And I respect those women who sometimes want a good lay and nothing more by giving it to them. No harm either side. Just a good time." Okay so a little crude, but it's still honest. Yeah... Leni loved her bless that girl, she doesn't take crap from anyone and i mean ANYONE, "What do you mean you don't feel it? And who the hell do you think you are? You can't traipse into my hotel room and claim a spot! Why are you even here in the first place? Are you stalking me? Did you follow me from Sulmona to Rome and now here? I'm not one of those girls who will spread my legs for you at your command, you know. I don't care if you are an underwear model. So get your ass out of here before I call the front desk and have you thrown out. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars tattooes & nipple piercings, need I say more Lol ;) April 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'Twin Flames: A deeper connection than soul mates. While soul mates are two souls made for each other, Twin Flames are two halves of a single soul that has been divided. The halves pull to each other until they are finally reunited. When they are once again bound to each other, they are stronger than the sum if their parts.'

That was flippin' amazing. Awesomesauce with a huge side of OH HELL YEAH!! This is the first book I have read from this author, but this one definitely makes me wanna check out her soulsavers series, she is just fantastic, LOVED IT!!

When you read the blurb it does hint to a paranormal side of this book, but you have no idea what you're in for. In a genre that has been done & re-done to death, it's always nice to come across one that is unique, a story all it's own. This. Is. It!!

'The word "dyad" echoed from deep within me, as if my soul itself had whispered it. I didn't even know what the word meant.
But I did know one thing for certain.
Before last night, I'd never seen this guy in my life -how could I ever forget that face?- but in some inexplicable way, I knew him. My soul knew him.'

It is so very hard to discuss much about the story without killing it for you & that would just be cruel, you really need to live it and watch everything unfold firsthand. Intense, thrilling, surprising, complex & sexy only starts to describe it. There are actually two couples we follow through this adventure -Jeric & Leni, Micah & Jacey- that's right, four POV's!! But it's not at all confusing, one story feeds off the other, one acts as a guiding light of sorts leading the way but each uniquely their own. You will grow to love all four people in their own ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Space Between by Kristie Cook April 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This novel is part one of The Book of the Phoenix. It is the story of Leni and Jeric, or so the reader thinks. As the book goes on, we find that it is not only their story, but the story of Jacey and Micah, Guardians, Warriors, who protect the universe from evil. So many mysteries and so much evil abound in their stories. The book is intriguing and hard to put down!

Leni and Jeric meet in Italy when Leni is dancing with a ballet troop there, a long time dream of hers. She feels drawn to him in a way that she has never felt drawn to anyone before. But, thinks she will never see him again as she is to leave for the states and home the next day. A series of coincidences, or are they? bring them together again, and again.

Strange occurrences continue to throw them together, along with a book that tells a strange story. Will they follow their hearts and the pull that they feel to each other, or will they destroy what has been for centuries? Will evil win this day?

This book drew me in from the beginning. I found it hard to put it down, and was intrigued by all the twists and turns and the dual storyline. I can't wait for the next book, as the characters are well written and the plot is intriguing.

5 stars!
