Book Review & Giveaway: The Space Beyond

The Space Beyond (The Book of Phoenix #2) by Kristie Cook: As members of the Phoenix, Jeric and Leni are thrust into their new lives, expected to lead Earth’s Guardians. But Leni struggles with trusting her own soul, and Jeric is more concerned about keeping Leni safe than meeting others’ demands. When Darkness swarms Lake Haven, they embark on their first mission with little preparation and no idea which soul the Dark hunts.

Born and raised in Lake Haven, Bex hopes to escape her small-town life, ideally in the arms of her soul mate. She knows he exists, and her heart aches with the need to find him. When her long-lost mama calls to announce she's knockin' on death's door, Bex reluctantly makes the trip to see the uncaring bitch (bless her heart), only to be knocked off her feet by the sexy and charming Dr. Mason Hayes. Is he really The One?

Leni’s soul felt an instant connection to Bex, but if Bex found her soul mate, she isn’t their mission. So who is, and why does Leni instinctively feel drawn to her? Can Leni even trust her intuition? And will Jeric step up and lead when the time comes orcontinue to hold them back?

If they don't learn to trust themselves and each other quickly, Darkness will claim them all…along with the rest of Earth’s souls.

 I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

The Space Beyond is the second book in Kristie Cook’s new adult, paranormal trilogy, The Book of Phoenix. The final book, The Space Within is scheduled to be released on July 14th, so no long wait to find out how it all ends. This is a very good thing since The Space Beyond ends with a cliffhanger.

In The Space Beyond, we continue to follow Leni and Jeric, Twin Flames and Guardians of Earth’s souls. I love Leni and Jeric. Their relationship is so sweet and passionate. We get to know a little about Asia and Brock, but not very much. There’s something strange with these two. I don’t know what yet, but something is going on there, and I’m very interested to find out what. We also get a couple of new characters: Bex, who we get to know really well in this book, and Nathayden, who remains a mystery for most of the book. There’s more I could say here, but I’ll leave it alone so I don’t spoil things for anyone.

I really enjoyed this book. For me, it wasn’t quite as good as the first book, but that could be due to the darker story line of the sad and very serious subject of domestic violence. I felt it was written well and believable. It is hard for someone who has never been a victim to understand how a person can get into this kind of situation. We may question how things can be overlooked and/or how the victim goes back time and time again. I believe until you walk a mile in that person’s shoes, you can never fully understand how it came about or the strength and support it takes to get out of it. I hope that we will all be helpers instead of judgers.

I would have liked to have gotten a few more answers than this book gave, which is the reason for my rating of 4. Overall, I enjoyed it very much and can’t wait to read the final book in a couple of months. I have so many questions that I can’t wait to have answered. I know I will miss living in this world when the series comes to an end.
