Their first mission has them second guessing themselves, and I really enjoyed how Leni and Jeric each deal with their issues in their own ways. Together but separate. Unity wrapped up in uncertainty.
And then there is Bex. Her character is written with a deft touch and her relationships with the other people in her life, particularly the men, are described in such a way as to catch the reader up in that very moment. By stages humorous, sad, loving and tragic. The rollercoaster which Bex rides through this tale will leave you out of breath and emotionally jostled.
I try not to do spoilers in these review but the ending will leave you wanting more. So much more. Fortunately, the final book in the tale is also available now. It has been added to the top of the leaning tower that is my to be read pile!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
The Space Beyond thrusts us back into the lives and love of Leni and Jeric as they set off to reunite two lost souls in danger of growing dark. If they are to be successful in their mission not only does Leni have to learn to trust her instincts, Jeric needs to trust that Leni can guide them wherever they need to go.
We are also reintroduced to Bex (aka Bethanny) and the book largely follows her exploration of the trials she ‘s faced in her life and how they have shaped her.
Point of view switches between Jeric, Leni and Bex provide first hand insight into the thoughts and feelings of these characters.
Bex’s POV was my favorite – I love her character. She’s ballsy, sassy, and full of interesting and sometimes hilarious one liners. I felt everything she did, laughed when she laughed, cried when she cried – which for Bex, was not very often, but you see where I am going with this. The fact she pulled at my emotions is a testament to the writing. There is so much more I could say about her character but I don’t want to write anything that could (and would) be deemed a spoiler.
Kristie Cook also explores a sensitive subject and she does so beautifully. Some if it horrified me, as it should, the nature of the subject is nothing less than horrific to begin with so why write it any differently?
The Space Beyond is written so well that at times I found myself unsure of just who I should be backing. The twists blew me away, the surprises – unexpected. There were times when my jaw rested firmly on the floor and others where I wanted to scream ‘NO’!!!
If you are a lover of the genre, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It has a great plot that will have you firmly immersed in the story and invested in the outcome. 5 Stars from me.
Kristie has done it again! I have loved all her published books and she keeps surprising me. Whenever I think I've seen it all, she truly takes the story to the next level.
When the first book in The Book of Phoeniz series, The Space Between, came out, I was excited and I really waited for this one,for The Space Beyond. It's well-written, heart-wrenching, thrilling, captivating and has great developed characters.
The Space Beyond takes off from where the first book ended.
Jeric and Leni have still lot to learn about what it means to be the Guardians and there are so many unanswered questions. The Book doesn't give any obvious answers to them and neither do their guides. It comes out, that Leni and Jeric are to lead the Guardians and the Phoenix, but Leni is insecure and Jeric doesn't really want to lead others. He just wants to be with Leni and make her happy.
When Leni and Jeric go back to the place they have once visited, Lake Haven, they meet with Bex, Ty and Dr. Mason Hayes. Leni has doubts if Bex is the one the Guardians are supposed to protect, but there are signs which refer to that. What is even more complicated is the process of finding out who is her other half, her Twin Flame.
What I loved about the book:
I loved the beginning of the story, the way the author refers back to the first book to fresh up the readers memory.
I loved the serious topics Kristie handels with care. There are emotional parts in this books which are very hard to read. It's not because of the writing, but it's because it deals with domestic abuse.
I loved how the author doesn't give everything away right from the beginning, so I kept guessing about the Twin Flames and generally, about how the story will end. I love surprises and that the plot wasn't obvious. It was well composed. And trust me, there's lot of that!
I think different point of views from different characters were well-written. Every POV was recognizable and had its own voice.
I enjoyed the writing style, the descriptions of the places, feelings, emotions and people were very good. The author made you feel pain, love, anger.. it was again the true art of writing which Kristie seems capable of delivering every single time she writes something. She is one of the authors whose writing I call art! She doesn't just tell you, she shoes you!
I loved the ending of the book. I did not see that coming! Kristie masters the art of cliffhangers, so be warned!
I loved the characters!
Bex was my favorite! Her point of view (there are several of them) was the most significant of them and most fun to read. Bex is a girl you will love. She didn't have much of a childhood and she had to learn from very early years, how to take care of her sister, so she was hard working fun having woman. Work hard, party hard! When taking care of her younger sister and having three jobs to manage everything, she had forgotten about herself. She needed to love and to be loved,she was desperate for it and that made her making some mistakes, especially with men. I loved seeing her grow, becoming more self aware and getting higher self esteem.
I loved that Jeric had his hearing back and that he was slightly confused by all the emotions created by the sounds around him. I enjoyed, that Jeric didn't like the idea of leading somebody. It's very him, wanting to protect Leni more than anything.
Brock and Asia. You meet them very briefly in the first book, but here in the second book, they have an important role to play. I kept wondering about Asia's and Brock's relationship because it wasn't the typical Twin Flame love. The author left quite few questions open for the reader to guess. Asia was fierce, stubborn and easily lovable. I can't give much away about Asia and Brock without giving away spoilers, but trust me when I'm saying, that there are scenes in the book where you want to applaud for Asia!
You will meet two interesting male characters in the book and both of them had an interest in Bex. Tyson is a local guy, coming back from the military. He is hoping to win back Bex's heart. Mason wants to take Bex with a storm and he is quite convincing.
Reading The Space Beyond is an exciting ride to take! The author captured you from the first chapter and keeps you literally in her hands until you have turned the last page of the book! I can't wait to read the last and third book of the series! I highly recommend it!
