Product description

Product Description

One epic love. Two wounded souls. Three impossible words.

Ripped away from each other by circumstances beyond their control. Reunited in a place they never expected. Separated but never quite apart.

“You’re still the only woman I see. The only woman I need. I know you’re in there somewhere, sweet Caroline. We’re going to find you and we’re going to help you, until you come home to me where you belong. Then we’re going to finish what we started. Together.”

Her confidence shattered, Caroline finally starts to deal with what happened at The Fed. Jack is determined to convince her that she’s more than she thinks she is. That she wasn’t destroyed by her experiences. That their relationship is worth the fight. But will he give up before it’s too late?

Phoenix is the fourth installment in The Bellator Saga. It should be read after the first three novels in the series.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Since the dramatic and tear inducing conclusion of Sojourn, I've spent lots time imaging what would happen in Phoenix and where the story would go. I'm pleased to say the author takes the story in a direction I didn't consider. I love that.

Caroline, the woman we adore, has been changed by her time at the Fed and I found her behaviour difficult to read at times. She made me really mad. She is hurting the person she loves the most and trying to protect herself and those she loves. Phoenix is dual point of view so we also get to see Jack's struggle to try to renew his relationship with his wife while she pushes him away.

My heart breaks for Jack. The more difficult Caroline is the more it chips away at his self esteem. It is clear Jack and Caroline are in love and should be together but these two keep getting in each other's way. Phoenix has a lot of angst and heart ache which resulted in plenty of tears from me.

Once again Ms London gives us a fantastic ending leaving me dying for Rhapsody, which this the next instalment. If you haven't read The Bellator Saga you are missing out. It is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Achingly beautiful and quietly harrowing 3 May 2016
By jeannie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Phoenix, The Bellator Saga’s fourth installment, was everything I wished for. But you know what they say “Be careful what you wish for. You may get it.” Well, I got my wish - Jack and Caroline in the same room together again – and it’s a continuous gut punch. The title should have clued me in but I was willfully oblivious. I wanted the rebirth of their love – but what I got is the scorched earth that comes before. Honestly, you can’t have one without the other, and God bless Cecilia London for not pulling any punches in the telling of Jack and Caroline’s harrowing journey and having the fortitude to honor the story. If she had gone any other way, and gave us the sweetness we craved, the Jack and Caroline we love would no longer exist and we’d be left with vapid cardboard cut outs.

Phoenix’s focus is on Jack and Caroline trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and souls and finding a way forward. She doesn’t gloss over the guilt and recriminations both Jack and Caroline have carried since they split up that night in the snowy, Pennsylvania woods. They lash out at each other in ways that are brutal and painful (kindle almost met wall on several occasions they were so frustrating). This heartbreaking cycle of misunderstanding is made all the more poignant as we, the reader, become privy to their inner battles as they save the most exquisite mental torture for themselves. In many ways, it’s really Jack’s story. Although his journey to California and position as leader of the rebels remains a mystery, it’s so clear that Jack is just as broken as Caroline. As Jack reveals his secret struggles, my love for him grew as he broke my heart, and then stomped on the pieces. It was the way that he always maintained his outward nobility and dignity in the face of Caroline’s vitriol. Girlfriend needed a taste of her own nasty medicine, to my mind, but he was, mostly, the bigger man.

Phoenix also continues the theme of the power of the memory of love, but in Jack’s case, he gets a taste of the dark side. His memories of love torture him in his dreams, as they morph into nightmares under the weight of his self-loathing, denying him the refuge that they gave Caroline.

Phoenix is an emotionally tough story to read. Even more so than Conscience because the refuge of happy flashbacks has been replaced by bittersweet memories of a past destroyed by the Fed. But like the mythical Phoenix, Jack and Caroline have to suffer the flames to experience their rebirth. I can’t say enough good things about Cecilia London’s style and vision. She takes the classic structure of the hero’s journey and melds it to a playful, sexual, deeply emotional relationship and dystopian politics, creating this mesmerizing story populated with strong, intrepid, “capital R” romantic, relatable characters driven by an epic love. Even as the story turns inward, the tempo never loses its urgency. More often than not, when characters engage in bouts of self-reflection the story bogs down. Here, Ms. London keeps the reader fully immersed. Finally getting to spend some one on one time with Jack as a character rather than through the haze of memory was such a treat for this reader. There are so many layers to this man and he’s made more attractive as his frailty and humanity is revealed. Subtlety like this isn’t something you generally get with “alpha billionaire playboys” (more often than not, any vulnerability is the result of whatever childhood trauma is currently popular in indie writing circles). Jack has a sense of normalcy that’s refreshing. I adore this silver fox.

Spend some serious time with Phoenix. Don’t be tempted to skim or skip over the tough parts because that’s where their love is forged into something even stronger. You will be rewarded ten-fold by this achingly beautiful story arc. The darkest nights produce the brightest stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars The riveting saga continuous...the plot...the scene...are just amazing and well written. I loved it!!! 2 May 2016

Commander Jack McIntyre will do anything just to make sure Caroline is being well attended after arriving at the rebel base camp. And slowly but surely, Caroline is getting better. Jack couldn’t be happier. But his happiness was short lived, once Caroline fully gained consciousness; she wants nothing to do with Jack. She hates him, period! Ever understanding Jack accepted this kind of attitude from Caroline. Cold… Distant… Stubborn! Not in that particular order, but Caroline can be such pain in the ass here. I can’t blame her, though, for what she’d been through. But I still love our feisty heroine.

Just like any other new recruit, Caroline will undergo extensive combat training and as per her request no special treatment. Caroline proved to be a great leader of her troops and she’s well-liked by most of the people at the base camp.

Though there are still some “black-out” moments where in Caroline remembers what she went through in the hands of the FEDS. That’s one of the reasons why she was forced to seek the help of a doctor. At first Caroline was reluctant to share anything but as time goes by she felt comfortable and little by little was able to tell what’s in her mind. Her relationship with Jack is slightly improved and there are times when everything seems back to normal. No hatred… no insecurities…

“What would happen if he kissed her just once? Surely she could tolerate that. More than tolerate it. Enjoy it. Relish it. Beg for more. F---, she had bit off more than she could chew. She closed her eyes, waiting for him to make that final move. “

This 4th book of The Bellator Saga, Phoenix, is eloquently written. Scenes that are so compelling, that I need to take a breather before I continue reading it. Cecilia London continues to amaze me the way she writes her books. She captures my undivided attention from start to finish, that’s how good it is.

This is not a standalone you must read the first 3 books in order to appreciate the story of Jack and Caroline, but let me tell you it’s worth it. A cliffhanger, yes, but one thing I like about this kind of series is that… the plot… the scenes are getting better and better. And the way this author writes, I know I expect nothing less but pure goodness when the next book comes. Kudos Author Cecilia London for another job well done! I highly recommend this book to anyone who's into this kind of genre!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cecilia London is upping the ante for traditionally publish and independently published authors alike. 3 May 2016
By Book Banshee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After reading The First Trilogy (Books 1-3) in The Bellator Saga, and then RE-READING them again before Phoenix's release I can safely assert that this book is much different than the others. It is angst-filled, the characters emotions are raw and real. If I said that this was an easy read, I would be lying. It is brutal. There were times I had to walk away for a moment and gather my strength just to dive back in. When I say brutal, I really mean it in the best way possible. It is brutal in the sense that I have grown to love these characters and hate to see them hurting, I am rooting for them, and their love. All I wanted to do was yell at them, at the author because they are torturing each other and themselves, AND ME!
Cecilia London's writing is phenomenal, but at this point, at least for me it wasn't even a question or a doubt in my mind. Her ability to tell a story supersedes most, if not all.

I can gush and gush all day everyday about this series. Just ask my husband, mom, brother, and their best-friends. Everyone needs to read books 1-3 to just read this book (because they aren't standalones)! Cecilia London is upping the ante for traditionally publish and independently published authors alike. This is my favorite book in the series, before that my favorite was Dissident (Book 1).

5.0 out of 5 stars The story continues! Can't wait for MORE Jack & Caroline. 4 May 2016
By TMP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
All I can say is WOW! Cecilia London does it again with book 4 in the Bellator Saga - PHOENIX! This book ripped my heart out, made me mad, made me cry but also made me chuckle a few times and left me wanting more, more, more. I don't know how I'm going to wait for the rest of this story. Caroline is so very broken from being held prisoner and tortured by the FED. She is scared, withdrawn and afraid to let anyone get close to her because she is so afraid of losing more people that she cares for. Jack is almost as broken as Caroline is. Jack's issues are deep within his own head, his insecurities rear their ugly head as Caroline continues to push him away. They still love each other, but Jack will admit it, Caroline can't. Their story is far from over, so many things still need to be said and acted upon and I can only hope that they find their way back to each other. I have loved this series from the prologue of the first book. So very worth the time and emotional investment to get to know these amazing characters as they take on the daunting task of fighting the corrupted government and learning to love and trust each other along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking 4 May 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I am addicted to this series. I anxiously awaited "Phoenix" and then read it in one day. This book rips your heart out, again and again and ends in a mad cliffhanger. I take the subway to work and back and it was a major struggle NOT to burst out crying on both train rides. Hoping Book 5 comes out sooner, rather than later.

This is an enthralling series. I can't wait for the next 2 books, but don't want the story to end.
