Editorial Reviews


"First let me say I am an avid reader of paranormal and R. Phoenix has managed to create a world I have never seen before. To say that things have changed for humans being the number 1 apex animal would be an understatement. It's hard to post an accurate review without giving away too many spoilers. But I will say that the action begins on page one and by the end I was begging for more. It's a rare treat to find a new author who blazed down their own path from day one, but R. Phoenix has done that with ease." -- Amazon Review

"R. Phoenix plunges us into the dark world of her RISQ series with the immediacy and visceral intensity of tripping on the stairs down into a scary basement and having the light bulb go out. BOUGHT isn't for the squeamish or light-hearted. For those who might mistake this short story as romance, it is most definitely not.

With that out of the way, if you're looking for a story that places you in the middle of the action and reveals a fascinating, dangerous world before thrusting you into a horrifying situation for the protagonist, this is it. There are vampires, werewolves, and witches so far, and it's a heady mix--plus, throw in an ample amount of sex, and what you have is *not* Twilight or TrueBlood, but something disturbing--and intriguing. I wonder where the author will go with her story, and reading the descriptions of her other books, it looks as if there will be a shift from dark erotica into dark romance.

It is always interesting to me to see how the paranormal would function in the normal, whether in a story that inverts, subverts, or deconstructs the trope. Phoenix works more at an inversion, turning things around to see what would happen. It's a scary playground, an alien invasion not from space, but from the pages of horror novels and whisperings around campfires." -- Atom Yang

"The writing is sharp, precise, and draws you in from the first line. In Elias, author R. Phoenix has created a 'bad guy' you're drawn to anyways, kind of like Eric Northman in True Blood." -- Amazon Review

"Put away everything you have read about Shifters and Werewolves. This book is nothing like you have read before." -- Amazon Review

From the Author

The first three works in this series (Bought, Ravel, and Recoil) were originally written as standalone works and can be read independently of one another. These characters' lives begin to come together in the fourth book (Owned). Owned takes place immediately after Recoil and three weeks after the end of Bought. Temper follows Ravel and occurs at approximately the same time as Owned.

In January 2017, I revised and re-released Bought, Ravel, and Recoil. The name of the series, 'Ripples in the Status Quo,' was updated to 'The Fate of the Fallen.' In March 2017, I revised and re-released Owned and Temper. In April, I revised and re-released Refraction. If you purchased these books prior to that time, please contact me, as Amazon will not provide updated copies.
