"A completely unique story with a paranormal twist . . . the perfect blend of romance and mystery with a phenomenal plot that will keep you guessing." ~ Jessica, Confessions of a Bookaholic

"I loved this book! The characters, the romance, the plot, the originality! It had everything to make it an amazing book!" ~ Kendall, Book Crazy

*****

Leni Drago can't make a smart decision on her own, according to her mother anyway--the few times she's tried resulted in disaster. When her uncle sends her on a dance tour in Italy to find her real self, she returns to an empty home and any evidence of his existence wiped out. Then things get even stranger, like the mysterious appearances of Jeric Winters--inked, pierced and a hit-'em-and-quit-'em type. He's one decision that should be easy for Leni. Or is he?

Jeric doesn't do girlfriends. Unless they're someone else's. He left the fighting cage and modeling for a reason, and girls who want more than a night of fun are distractions he doesn't need. Especially when they come with as much baggage as Leni carries. But he can't shake the gut feeling that he needs to know her. All of her.

To discover the truth behind their connection and their ties to a journal from 1989, they must face painful secrets from their pasts. And they must do so quickly because their own existences are falling to pieces.

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.

*****

"This is a completely new twist on the idea of a timeless love story with a paranormal twist unlike any other. The connection between the two characters is bone deep and resonates beautifully. I will never forget this novel." ~ Heather McCorkle, Author of the fantasy Channeler series

"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

"The Space Between is an amazing story of life, love and fates. Author Kristie Cook has you hanging on the edge of every page. This book stays in your head well after the last page." ~ Mindy, Forbidden Reviews

**Mature Content** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations and language.

The Space Between is Part one of The Book of Phoenix, a new paranormal romance series by Kristie Cook, bestselling author of The Soul Savers Series. I'm already a huge fan of Kristie's earlier work, but was curious to see how she would do with a whole new set of characters and circumstances. Well, question answered. She ROCKED IT! The character development is amazing. Kristie has found a way to get us inside the heads of her characters so fully that we feel their joy, their pain, all of their emotions as though the are our own. Add to this a completely unique story with a paranormal twist and you've got a book that will keep you up at night until the last page is turned. I highly recommend this book!

I wanted to like this book. I really, really wanted to like it. But for me, it was just ok. There was so much going on and so much back and forth. The concept was interesting. But as much as I hate to say it, I'm not all that interested in the next book in the series. :(

I have never read anything from this author before, but I definitely will in the future. There were so many things going on in this book that I want to mention. How cool is it to find a journal? Especially one you can not open. What happened to Leni's great-uncle? The important question is why, not how, was he wiped out of existence? Leni should have stayed in Italy. I thought about her great-uncle a lot. Where was he? Was he even alive still? How is Leni going to open the journal and find out about him? If the journal is about him. As I was reading through the book I almost forgot about the journal. there was so much other good stuff going on. Leni met Jeric. After that waiting is all they other can do not to find each other again. There was more than an attraction, it was a pull. Just when I was ready to give up on Jeric, they meet again. How could Leni not want this sexy man. Jeric can not stop thinking of Leni either. As the book went on it was obvious that this was not just love. There was a cosmic reason they met. It was even more than fate. Their love gave new meaning to soul mate. The way the author wrote the paranormal aspects of this book made me believe! These are not normal characters in a book. The author wrote them so animated that at times I felt like I was inside the book with them. I definitely really liked this book. The ending was good too. I am giving this book a 5/5! I can not wait to get the sequel! I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own!!! Also what a cool cover!

Kristie pens "The Space Between" the first book in 'The Book of Phoenix' series,  in an unique and original plot in her own amazing writing style. Her characters were very well developed and they draw you right into the story line as though you were right there. This book had me crying and laughing throughout and had a hard time putting it down. I can't wait for the next installment to come. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

And she's done it again ladies! Couldn't put it down all week and could not wait to find out the who, what, when, where and why of everything. Almost had me at the end but all is well. Good job Ms. Cook, yet another job well done and the reason you are one of my favorite authors.

Book of the Phoenix #1- totally sold me on this new paranormal series! Leni and Jeric- their first introduction to each other (where they actually speak to each other) will capture your attention and leave you curious, enough so that you just want to know more. Add in the characters Jacey and Micah- their storyline fills in a few blanks and sets the bar for some serious chemistry! I'm not a big fan of reincarnation stories- but the intensity, the memories both stolen and remembered, the chemistry and adventure will ensure you finish it in one sitting and leave you wanting more!

This is a wonderful love story with enough action to keep you on edge. I love the book and can't wait to see what happens next!

This is a good book. Good "destiny" type of theme going on. I've read the Soul Saver series and found I enjoyed it much more than this book. However, I did like this one too and plan to read the next installment when it is released. The story line keeps you interested so that you want to finish the book and find out all the answers why are main characters are drawn to one another. Really enjoyed the story within the story (Micah & Jacey). So really you get two romance stories all rolled into one book.

There are not enough words in English (and in Estonian which is my mother tong) to describe how much I loved this book. Kristie has done it again and written an awesome, magical and mesmerizing story! The plot is fantastic and the way she has waved it together is absolutely brilliant. Since I have read all her other books, I thought it might be difficult for her to surprise me, but she did it. Her storytelling skills are fabulous and I also found new things in her writing style. There is lots of humor in The Space Between and I giggled and laughed out loud many times while reading the book and this is the side of Kristie's writing which I have not seen that strongly before - the book is in the same time funny and also thrilling! Besides that I was awed how good Kristie is at writing a mystery book, she grabs your attention from the very beginning and increases the tension and builds it step by step until your curiosity can't hold it anymore! Wonderfully written story that you will never ever forget! Plot: The story begins with introducing you to Leni - a dancer, who is finally living her secret dream: she is dancing in a troupe in Italy. When on her way home to US, she meets a guy - Jeric - in the airport. It is a brief meeting, but it leaves behind so many unanswered questions. Why is there such a strong pull between them? Why is it so difficult for them to go separate ways? Time shows, that Leni and Jeric meet again. In the meantime, Leni has arrived home to her great-uncle, and strange things start to happen. Leni's uncle has vanished and nobody seems to remember anything about her uncle and what's even worse - nobody seems to remember Leni either. The only item she finds, is a journal. Journal, which brings Leni and Jeric back together again and leads them to a journey which is beyond dangerous. Their world changes when they finally find a way to open the journal. It takes them from Now to Then... and they meet with Jacey and Micah. This is where I stop, because I'm afraid I will give away too much with my excitement! You need to read The Space Between yourself to find out what's going to happen. I loved how the author changes between the point of views between the characters, there are a clear and distinct differences of voices of Leni, Jeric, Micah and Jacey. I also loved the two storylines Now and Then. Then takes you back to 80s which was fun to read because the author is doing an excellent work with describing the 80s with all its weird and funky lifestyle. The most amazing part of the book is when the author decides to bring Now and Then together and I have to admit, that as much as I guessed, I never saw that coming! Characters: I am sure that you have already understood my fondness to the story. Have patience with me, because I LOVED the characters! That is exactly what makes Kristie a great author - she puts as much effort to the plot as to the characters, you feel that she has given a lot of herself to balance between keeping the plot captivating and characters alive. She brings the characters alive, they are colorful, vivid, they have their flaws, but at the end of the day, you will love them! You will feel their happiness, their pain, their excitement, their horror - they are written with emotions and that makes this book one of the best I've ever read!

Yet another book Kristie has put out that had me on the edge of my seat wanting more. This one is for sure my favorite to date.

Kristie Cook is one of my very favorite authors. I was worried, I didn't think anything could compete with her Soul Savers series, but she did it again! She has a style of writing that sucks you right into the book. You feel a part of that world and that of the characters. Every emotion they feel, so do you. This series is a totally different style than Soul Savers, but every bit as excellent. Not only do you get entrapped in the love and passion of one couple, but you get two!! Definitely swoon-worthy! Plus, you will not be able to stop turning the pages, because there are so many questions to be answered. You will keep guessing but won't be able to truly put it together till the end. And what a cliffhanger, as always. Leaves you panting for the next book. Kristie has a habit of doing that to us! I had the Honor to beta-read this book, and even the very rough draft was perfect!!

The Space Between by Kristie Cook 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!

Unforgettable! This is a completely new take on the idea of a timeless love story with a paranormal twist unlike any other. The connection between the two characters is bone deep and resonates beautifully. I will never forget this novel. I can't say too much or I will give away the plot, which is mysterious and filled with fantastic ups and downs. Fans of Denise Grover Swank's CHOSEN series will love this.

The Space Between by Kristie Cook is absolutely incredible. People are always looking for something different and Kristie definitely delivers with this first book in her new series The Book of Phoenix! There were moments that had me laughing out loud and literally screaming out loud at these characters! Leni is a good girl who takes care of her great uncle, whose dream is to dance professionally. Jeric is a bad boy who takes care of every woman that he crosses paths with. ;) What on Earth could these two possibly have in common? The answer will seriously blow your mind!!!
