The Phoenix Institute, Book 2

Philip Drake is immortal by virtue of a psychic power that heals all but the worst injuries. He’s needed every bit of it as a black ops agent, a life so violent that the line between pain and pleasure is tangled up in his head.

The first third of this novel read like "pro-life" rhetoric and should be viewed as one massive cluster of potential trigger warnings for rape and the societal pressures surrounding abortion and adoption. It's not graphic but it is quite repetitive for a while. (view spoiler) ...more

Phoenix Legacy is the direct sequel to Phoenix Rising, unlike Luminous which told a side story in this same fantastic universe.

The impact that Luminous has on Phoenix Rising is that it provides the excuse for telepath Beth Nakamora to be out of town and unavailable during the events of this book. IMHO the mystery would have been way too easy to solve if Beth had been around to read everyone’s occasionally tiny mind. She’s not, so it takes some more

I won a copy from Goodreads First Reads.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Now you read the synopsis (if you are reading this from my blog, not my Goodreads account), you should move on.

There's no need to read the first Phoenix Institute book. There's a good fast recap whenever something from the past comes up (sorry, this is going to be fast review. I'm on the fast track today. Party, party, and party. New Years kind of stuff).

Okay. Let's break it down (before my laptop shuts down because of the freaking

“Phoenix Legacy” by Corrina Lawson is part of the ‘Phoenix Institute’ series. This fantastic sequel continues the adventures of several of the extraordinary characters introduced in “Phoenix Rising”. Philip Drake was altered by his foster daughter’s talent which boosted his self-healing abilities but he has a disconcerting need for pain to provide sufficient stimulation. Disenchanted with his life in black ops, he has been aimless until he realizes that his new project has far more pe

I think this is my favorite so far of the series. Corrina has created a new kind of series with books that are totally stand-alone yet work together beautifully as a series, and this is the second. The story about Phillip and Del is just beautiful; childhood friends turned unknowing parents, turned lovers, turned partners. Can't wait to hear more about them in the coming books.

really good. not as fresh as the first novel And spent too much time trying to explain the powers or something. it didn't flow as well as the first two for me. which isn't to say i didn't read it during all possible moments in the Phoenix institute glom fest.

Lots of triggers for people in the beginning of this book. Liked the action and the characters, hated the stance on carrying a rapist's baby (the plot is more complicated than that but it is suggested that a woman should deliver regardless of if she was raped - something that I was uncomfortable reading).

I was very excited for this, and am totally pleased with how good it is.

It ties in the novella to the series very well without detracting anything from the book.

Del and Phillip are great characters and Phillip deserves his name as Mr Sexy-Crazy very much indeed.

Great book! I enjoyed watching the controversial issues like medical rape and government tampering. Interesting pain/pleasure scenes. Overall great story.
