The Space Beyond by Kristie Cook - Review & Excerpt

Today on the blog we have one of my fave Indie authors, Kristie Cook. Now if you haven't read anything by this amazing woman, than jump to it right now!!! I'm sharing with you today another BRILLIANT series by Kristie. I fell head over heels for book 1 The Space Between and I fell even harder for book 2 The Space Beyond. You think the first books are amazing, with Kristie Cook they just keep getting better with each addition. So read on and BUY. BUY. BUY. ^_^
The Space Between
(The Book of Phoenix, #1)
By Kristie Cook
When Life Falls to Pieces, Answers Lie in the Space Between
After a month-long dance tour overseas, Leni returns to Georgia to care for her great-uncle, only to find him gone, their home empty, and any evidence he ever existed wiped out. All that remains is her truck and a leather-bound book she can't open. Nearly as disturbing, she keeps running into the deaf and dangerously sexy model she'd met in Italy, and no matter how hard she tries to shake him, her soul won't let her.
Jeric has traveled the world in search of a piece of his past for over a year, only to reach a dead-end in Georgia ... in the exact town where the beautiful dancer from Italy lives. He's drawn to her like a moth to a flame, but his life as a loner in his silent world allows no room for girlfriends, and he tries to leave her. Except outside forces won't let him.
When the same "tattoos" suddnely appear on their arms and the book's lock falls open, Leni and Jeric realize there's more between them than physical fascination. They must embark on a journey together to discover their connection to each other and their ties to the Book of Phoenix.
And they must figure it all out fast. Shadowy forms that are more monsters than men are closing in, while their own existances are falling to pieces around them.
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.

My Review for The Space Between

The Space Beyond
(The Book of Phoenix, #2)
By Kristie Cook
Hearts break. Souls shatter. Love lies in The Space Beyond.
As members of the Phoenix, Jeric and Leni are the 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 preperation and no idea which soul Dark hunts.
Born and raised in Lake Haven, Bex hopes to escape her small-twon 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 heaven'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 or continue to hold the back?
If they don't learn to trust themselves and each other quickly, Darkness will claim the all...along with the rest of Earth's souls.

The Space Within
(The Book of Poenix, #3)
By Kristie Cook
When Darkness threatens, what matters most lies in The Space Within.
Completing a mission that reunites Guardian Twin Flames turns devastating when the Book of Phoenix throws Leni and Brock into a Dark world, leaving Jeric and Asia behind. They count on their other halves to rescue them, but when that doesn't happen, they must fight through the Darkness and find a Gate that will take them home.
Except all of Earth's Gates are sealed.
Enyxa, ruler of Darkness, and her horde of Dark souls storm the Gates to push their way through to Earth. While Leni and Brock fight Enyxa on their side, Jeric and Asia must figure out how to save their Twin Flames without jeopardizing all of Earth's souls. Through it all---and with a little help from Enyxa---Brock and Asia begin questioning their relationship and whether they're truly meant to be together...or if they're two Lost souls forced to become one.
If the Broken dvads don't find each other fast, they'll be lost to the Dark forever. But to reunite means choosing themselves over all of Earth's souls. Can Jeric make that decision? And will Brock and Asia find the love they both desperately crave? Or are they all doomed to perpetual Darkness?
Discover how it all ends in The Space Within, the explosive conclusion to The Book of Phoenix trilogy.

My Review of The Space Beyond:
Those two words are all that's coming to me right now lol. Kristie Cook does this to me every time, she just knows how to blow a persons mind.
From the first page I was drawn in, The Space Beyond starts where The Space Between left off. So we're back with our fave characters Leni & Jeric, they're starting to learn about everything and that they are meant to lead the guardians. Jeric isn't sure that's the right place for him and only wants to look after and be with Leni.
Leni & Jeric get their first mission to save a soul from going dark. Having no idea who this person is makes things a lot harder. Along the way we meet some new characters, loved Bex.
This story will take you on a emotional rollercoaster ride with twists and turns around every corner, characters you fall in love with (*coughs* Jeric *coughs*), and a doozy of an ending which will guarantee you coming back for more. I know what I'll be buying on payday lol.
Come get your mind blown by the gorgeous and amazing Kristie Cook, go get your copy of The Space Beyond or start at the beginning with The Space Between.
Excerpt of The Space Beyond

She paused for a moment, staring at her hands as her fingers tapped a rhythm on the blanket, and I already knew her next thought. I had to control myself from clamping my hand over her mouth to keep her from saying it, as though that would prevent the thought from already being a reality. Because remembering our pasts was kind of fun, like solving a weird mystery, but what she was thinking took us to a whole different level. One I wasn’t ready for.
“I have this strong feeling the guy in the Gate who’d sounded so desperate was Nathayden. And I think … saving Rebethannah is our first mission.”
She lifted her head to look at us. I turned mine to stare at the wall, my jaw clenching. She already knew my feelings on this theory.
“What do you guys think?” she asked when nobody said anything.
My eyes cut to Brock and Asia, who shared another look, but they didn’t hold back this time. Asia reached out and laid her hand on Leni’s knee.
“You tell us,” she said to my other half. “We remembered last night that this has always been your thing, like your super power—you lead us to the souls we’re supposed to help.”
The hair on the back of my neck rose, and I jumped to my feet as though the bed itself had caused the feeling. But what I felt came from inside, and no matter how much I wanted to deny it, to make it go away, to pretend it didn’t exist, I couldn’t. The truth is the truth, and what Asia just said was no doubt a truth. I knew it in my gut, or in my soul, as everyone else would say. Leni—or Jacquelena, to be more accurate—was our light, showing us the way. Theo and Mira had emphasized this when we’d been Forged at the Gate. Not just mine, but everybody’s. I hadn’t fully understood what that meant at the time, but it was starting to make more sense.
Didn’t mean I liked it.
“No,” I said, unable to form the words I wanted to say. “Just … no. Not yet.”
“Jeric—” Leni started, and I spun on her.
“Can you really say you feel ready to do this?” I demanded, leaning over her on the bed. “Do you even know what you’re doing?”
Leni stared at me for a moment, opening her mouth then closing it like a carp as she considered my question.
“Yes,” she finally said, and when I lifted my brow and sucked in a breath to argue, she held a hand up. “It’s not knowledge to be gained, Jeric. I don’t have to learn this. It’s intuition. Instinct. My soul talking to me. I know how that sounds, but look at our lives now. Look at what we do know and tell me that relying on our instinct, on our souls that have existed for eons compared to our measly human brains, isn’t what we’re supposed to do. That’s the lesson we’re supposed to learn more than any others. Am I right?”
She turned back to Brock and Asia, who both nodded.
“So we’re just supposed to cut off our brains and all logic?” I snapped.
“Don’t be ridiculous,” Asia said with a sigh. “You just have to let your brain catch up to what you already know in your soul.”
I glared at each of them in turn, not sure why this bothered me so much. I’d practically vowed to trust Leni and her intuition, to accept her as our light to lead the way. And I knew deep down that she’d be right—that her soul would know exactly what we’re supposed to do. The “normal” side of me, the Jeric I’d been for the last twenty-three years, however, bristled at the thought of going out and being some kind of supernatural-like ninja, helping people who probably didn’t even know they needed to be helped. How were we supposed to do that anyway?
“So you think your soul will lead us right to whoever Rebethannah is now?” I demanded. “And you really think that’s our mission?”
Leni pressed her lips together and dropped her gaze to the blanket again. “I don’t know yet,” she nearly whispered, but then she lifted her eyes to me and raised her voice. “But it’s time to find out.”
