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.

Phoenix is the 4th book in the Bellator Saga, and the series must be read in order. With each book, the stakes are higher, the action is more intense, and the raw emotions take you on a ride that you will never forget.


Phoenix doesn't waste anytime submerging the reader right back into the action. Caroline and her crew have arrived safely to the rebellion's home base

Phoenix is the fourth book in The Bellator Saga, a series which needs to be read and enjoyed in the order it was written. I have slowly fallen in deep love with Jack and Caroline's story. The action from both the past and present is showcased in various ways. Dreams of the protagonists allow the reader to delve into their past, their fears and their truths experiencing the light and shade of their personas. This provides a fascinating dichotomy of their subconscious v

If you've read a Cecilia London novel before, you know she kidnaps the reader into a fascinating world where you never know what to expect. Her writing style is smart, sensual and very raw. With this fourth installment of The Bellator Saga, she's out to shatter your heart in the most delicious way and I was a glutton for punishment, the more my heart hurt the more I wanted to keep reading.

5 "Rise from the ashes" STARS

I feel like I say this with every book in this series…this was not an easy read.

“Life is about more than wins and losses. It’s about relationship. Love. The knowledge that it’s more important to maintain those ties with one another than to do anything to risk the precious bonds that bring us together.”

One thing I love to hate (not really hate, I say this in jest) about Cecilia London is that she doesn’t hold back any punches. She gives you raw, real and gritty.

How I felt while reading this book???


And yet I gave this book 5 stars. I'd give it more if I could. Because as much as I felt like I absolutely hated Caroline here, my sympathy for her was unavoidable. Because as much as her words and actions absolutely appalled and disgusted me, they were REAL. Cecilia London did a remarkable job of illustrating Caroline's PTSD and how it affected herself and others.

There were so many times I really wanted to hurt Caroline.


Ok. I mean really hurt her. That right

5 ALL-for-Jack stars!!!

I’m letting you know now, my personal take, this is the next most challenging read after Conscience. Conscience was brutal with its graphic violence, but this, this was emotionally taxing. Maybe it’s because I’m completely vested in Jack and Caroline, that’s why I feel this way, or maybe not… I’m not sure anymore. After reading Cecilia’s acknowledgment at the end, she knows what it would do to her readers, and I wasn’t sure if

Cecilia London is back with book four of the Bellator Saga, Phoenix. The romantic in us fervently prays that the title means the renewal of the love between Jack and Caroline in spite of all that has happened since they were separated. We want their love to soar, new, alive and reborn, but they are now damaged, especially Caroline, who has endured more than humanly possible.

Caroline has been tortured, abused and demoralized, the woman that shows up at Jack’s compound is shattered, scraped raw, a

Dissident was the innocent book, when love blossomed into beauty. Conscience was the vicious book, when we asked just how much our heroine could endure. Sojourn was the transition book, as we watched Caroline attempt to block out every bit of her life and move forward by forgetting the past.

So now we arrive at Phoenix. The beginning of the second half of the series. And still...a bit of a transition. I am the first to admit that Caroline is not always likable in this book. Sometimes she is cruel

This is the fourth instalment in the Bellator Saga. I’ve been thinking for a while now how I’m going to write my review and to be honest. I have no efffing clue.

I don’t consider myself to be a very emotional person. It’s just not me. I can be eloquent if I want, I can be articulate but here I’m just going to be as real as I can. I’m a cost & effect kind of girl and this costed me nothing to read but it affected me in a profound way. Th

Cecilia London completely dazzles me once again with the fourth installment in her highly regarded Bellator Saga. These two remarkable lead characters, Jack and Caroline, took me on another hauntingly beautiful journey through their lives. Their story is not easy. It's dark, psychological, and emotionally exhausting but absolutely worth every turn of the page. London exhibits incredible talent with her w

Phoenix is the fourth installment in the Bellator Saga. You must read the first three books before reading Phoenix. Dissident is the first book and is currently free.

I love Jack and Caroline like crazy. Cecilia London is forging her own way in creating a new genre.
Jack has been Caroline's strength, even when she didn't want it. London pulls me in even farther in this episode of the saga that is the remarkable story of Jack and Caroli

Oh how to review Phoenix without giving the whole book away…This has been my dilemma since I read it two weeks ago. This book is really a transitional book I feel like for everyone involved in the story thus far and is a very emotional read.

How do you even begin to write a review for a book that leaves you speechless with every turn of the page. That is what Phoenix was for me.
This is book four in The Bellator Series and the intensity of this book will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. How do you try and explain the pain that Jack & Caroline have suffered without feeling it yourself.
Phoenix picks up right where Sojourn ends and we see that the once confident woman Caroline was is so far broken is there a way for her

For private reasons, this was probably not the best book for me to read at the moment, but there was no way that I could miss another second without my favorite politically autonomous couple.
Phoenix was a very intensely emotional book and probably the most unique in the series thus far.

The struggles that Jack and Caroline steadily endure are pretty in depth and really hit home in quite a few scenes. The ambivalent emotional turmoil that they have and continue to experience was so heart wrenchin

“Leave me alone,” she mumbled. “I don’t know anything.”

Do I think Cecilia London can write? Absolutely.

Do I think her writing can get under your skin, into your heart and hit you right in the feels? Without any doubt whatsoever.

This brilliant author and this heart-wrenching saga quickly became one of my favorite discoveries of 2015. To say Cecilia London continues to blow me away with each book in the series would be an enormous understatement.

The main reason I LOVE this series so much is the heroine. Caroline, IMO, is one of THE best female charac

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

I don’t even know how to start this review. Phoenix had me in such emotional turmoil….. the angst…. the suspense… and Jack? *Sigh*

Phoenix, being the fourth book in the series I was prepared. Or so I thought…

I try to go into each of these books with some knowledge that Ms. London is going to eviscerate me in some way shape or form, because I’m attached to these characters in a way I rarely feel. They’ve become a tangible thing at this point in my mind. I’m invested, and after everything they went

Phoenix started off at The Base. That’s all I have to say. Everything, you have to see for yourself. This installment is a continuation of the epic love story of Jack McIntyre and Caroline Gerard and their fight towards what’s right.

So yeah, I'm the queen of procrastination, especially when it comes to writing reviews on books I love. It gets worse when I finish a book that I not only loved, but also on books that completely break me... when that same book ends in a cliff hanger that seriously wants me to throw my kindle across the room?

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

The fourth installment in the Bellator Saga, I have been waiting for this book since Sojourn left me hanging!
We start exactly where Sojourn ended, with Caroline reunited with Jack - happy days, I thought, all the heartache that Caroline and I had suffered in Sojourn was over. Ha! Not a chance! In this book we see a lot more from Jack's POV and suffer along with him this time, as Caroline constantly pushes him away. At times I felt like my heart was breaking, I wanted to
