The Phoenix Project (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:36PM
Description: In Salverford prison, time was obsolete. One day drifted into the next and the next… And without any sense of time, how could he move on? Time heals all wounds… So where did that leave him? One man battles through guilt and redemption in D.M. Cain’s riveting new novel, The Phoenix Project. In a dystopian future, Britain has descended into violence and terror as criminals run rampant. In response, the Phoenix Project is created—a system in which inmates from prisons across the country fight to the death, cheered on by a bloodthirsty public. Raven Kennedy, a prisoner who is unable to forgive himself for his past crime, struggles to come to grips with a present in which he is forced to kill others. As he faces one of his fiercest battles yet, Raven appears to find an ally in Alexia—a woman who provides both the means for Raven’s disturbing methods of self-harm and the strength to resist it. He begins to realize he will either die in the ring or live and achieve stardom; but before he can fight for his life, he needs to find a reason to live. His real enemy is not the man pitted against him; it is the monster inside himself.
