I grew up in the dark.

Right and wrong?

In my world, it was kill or be killed.

I spend my time in the shadows; doing what I want, when I want. I refuse to follow anyone's rules—I own this town.

They might not see me, but my club controls everything... including her. I took Daddy's little princess and defiled her to send a message. Now, I want to keep her down here in the dirt

Hands down my favorite book of 2019!

Stop whatever the fuck you’re doing and read this series now! This isn’t a standalone; you should start with Renegade and Traitor (Mike & Lauren’s books) as it sets up Deserter where we meet Jamie “Grey” Quinn and Celia Cross. You won’t regret it- trust me!

I don’t have words to convey how my heart and mind are feeling right now. My chest is still beating fast. I need answers, need to know what happens next. I thought I had an idea of where this story was goin

This book...I can't begin to tell you the love I have for this book and this author. This book is raw, it's edgy, it's heartbreaking, it's soul-crushing. It was so much more than I was expecting from this story. Shannon Myers has a way of writing a story that is so soul consuming that it leaves you breathless and craving more. I did not see Grey and Celia coming. I did not see how this story was going to make me fall in love not only with Grey but with Celia. These two fight so hard against each ...more

All I can say is WOW! Another exciting, mind blowing, sexy, and dark novel by Shannon Myers. A page turner until the very end that leaves you dying for more!

Holy shit. I have loved every book I’ve read by Myers but this book, this book is in its own league. Hands down the best book she has written to date. I was fighting not to get emotional before I had even hit chapter 4. If you have read Mikes story and love him, he has NOTHING on his dad. Grey pissed me off and broke my heart and I love him. Celia is everything you want in a heroine and so much more. The ending of this book will have you wishing your life away just so June can get here and we ca ...more

This is the third book in this awesome series, and in my opinion, this series needs to be read in order. This is Grey and Celia’s story, and what an emotional roller coaster their journey is. This is a well written story which is raw, gritty and filled with deceit, betrayal, lies, emotion, humour, and love. I was hooked and intrigued throughout this spine tingling masterpiece, which is an addictive page turner. I cannot wait to read the next book in this thrilling series, and recommend for all M ...more

LOVED IT! I had to go back and start at the beginning. I loved every single page that I have read. It is dark and gritty and tears you apart. Love on the deepest of levels, but not in your normal happily ever after sense. Being as I had to go back and read the first two books, I was very happy to delve into this series. I cannot wait to see what comes next.

This is not the book or series you want to read if you are looking for happily ever after. If you want a story that sucks you down into it's depths, messes with your head, feeds you some incredible writing, mythology tie-ins, and some comic book references and then rips your heart out of your chest - this is the one for you.

I said all the cuss words, and I knew what was coming. I KNEW - and it still wrecked me. In the best way. Because I know that Celia and Jamie and their deep, real characters

Deserter by Shannon Myers a five-star read that won’t ever leave you. This is the third novel in the Silent Phoenix series and it’s the best in the series in my eyes. This review has taken me days to write it, every time I tried, I just kept sobbing now I just have chills. it’s so well written that you wont ever forget this story. Its heart-breaking but its also beautiful and compelling and needs the next part of the story to hurry along as I need more Celia in my life. This is a story that will ...more

I loved this book from a new to me author. Her MC world sucked me in from the first page until the end and can't wait to see what's in store next for Grey and Celia. Word of warning this book ends in a cliffhanger, but it's so worth the read and now the wait to see what happens next. Grey's life in the beginning was not an easy one and when he ends up being the Prez of the Silent Pheonix MC he lives for his club and only his club. That all changes though when he meets Celia, who was supposed to ...more

This Book was so good. It a must read! I absolutely can not wait to read the next one. This has everything in it.just the right amount of sex and violence with out going over top and making it ridiculous. It's a story with alot of depth to it. The only thing I didn't like was it being a cliffhanger ugh! Hate that! If I had known I might have waited to read it until it was out as well. Still glad I read it though. That ending, just makes me want the next Book now. At least I won't have to

Spine tingling doesn’t do this book justice. But that’s the perfect description of what you feel while reading it. Shannon keeps you on your toes wondering what’s coming next or curled in a ball biting your nails at the angst level of awesomeness she builds!
I’ve never read anything like it and now...I just want more! Read now and get your MC fill! When you are done and screaming for more, don’t worry you can pick up her other books and find your favorite characters alive in them all.

Amazingly raw, gritty, violent, love and I loved every minute of it!!!

This book grabbed me, held me, and spit me out at the end that left me completely undone. My heart was pounding, anxiety riding high, with an ending that left me shocked and wanting to cry. My heart broke, utterly shattered.

I love this book. I had been in a reading slump, nothing was interesting enough to hold my attention until book. It's alpha MC men at their finest, violence, sex, drugs, club girls doing bad and a muffed up

I loved this book can't wait to read the next one. This book was well written and very engaging
5++ Stars!

First thing I’m gonna say is Shannon Myers WTF!!! I know she knows what I am talking about!
With that said her writing was freaking brilliant! I have read one other book by her and loved it, so this one did not disappoint but it definitely was a lot more Gritty then the other book I read by her, but I expected that with this series. From what I understand Ms Myers changed up the order of the books in the series and this should be read as the first book instead of the third.

Grey and Cel

One of the best MC books I have read in a while. Dark, raw, gritty,and powerful. There is also love. I don't want to give any spoilers, just an amazing read!

Shannon Myers is a new to me author, and Deserter truly traumatized me with the way it ended. Like this was the cliffy to end all cliffhangers, and I'm LIVID to the millionth degree, so ready to start sending mean messages with colorful metaphor name calling to the author. And it's taking everything in me not to do it, not because I'm new to Ms. Myers Silent Phoenix MC world, but because I don't want her to take time away from finishing the next book. I'm good with looking like a crazy deranged ...more
Nadia Debowska-Stephens (Obsessed by Books)
It begins with blood and tears, shrouded in mystery the story of Grey is not a fairy tale. The rise and fall of a MC Prez is drenched in the blood of enemies and sometimes brothers and littered with the corpses of those that pay the price for the reaper. Love is born in the dark and raw world of the MC, just a spark that ignites and cannot be smothered no matter what fate throws at them. But Grey should have known he couldn’t have it all...

This book is gut wrenching. From start to finish where

This is my first read from Shannon Myers and man WOW the only thing that I didn’t like cliff hanger. Grey and Celia’s story is full of deceit betrayal, love, lies, sacrifices, flawed characters, gut-wrenching moments and so much more; this story is one hell of ride. This book is very well written flows so good that you don’t even relies the how much you read or how late you stayed up. O and the plot twist I did not see coming I can’t wait for part 2. I’m leaving so

Epic Read

My words will not do this book justice. I was drawn in from the first word till the last. Jamie and Celia's story brings all the feels and leaves you wanting more. This is book one in a two book series. You will also need to keep the tissues handy.

Favorite quote: Celia ~ "I was Icarus and Jamie was the sun. I’d known what it would cost me, yet I’d chased after him anyway. I’d flown too high, convinced that he’d never let anything happen to me; certain that I’d never come back down to e

I have absolutely no words for Jamie (Grey) and Celia's story. It crushed me from the beginning and that last chapter was one of the most brutal scenes I have ever read. It will take me a while to recover from those images after all that happened during their tumultuous relationship.
That being said, you need to start at the beginning and read the first two books before hitting this one. I need the next book like my next breath right now. Geez...warning...not for the easily upset or anyone who h

I knew this story was going to be amazing, like anything Shannon does, but wow! She takes it back to the very being and makes you fall in love with each and every character. This book left me speechless and wanting to hunt her down so I can read the rest. Broke my heart 💔. Give me more woman!

Absolutely Fantastic

Wow what a story. I couldn’t put this down but please read this first. Yes this is book 1 so should be read first but I followed the advice of another reviewer who said trust me read book 3 Renegade first then book 4 and then book 1 and I’m sorry I’d did. For me reading Renegade first did spoil my reading experience and I was often confused and felt like I was missing part of the story, well I was. Many spoilers were revealed and you need to trust the author and read her ser

I'm sitting here with so many emotions I don't know what to do with myself. If you love grit, angst, and dark romances you'll love this. This story yanked my feelings right out of me. There are tears. Lots of tears. I'm still trying to process the ending. Go! Grab it now!

Greys history

This book takes you through the years of Greys rise to club Pres. What he has had to do to keep his club and family safe. It's a gripping read that churns your stomach in some parts. I cannot wait for the next book

Grey and Celia

This is a great story by a dynamic couple. Grey goes from troubled youth to the head of the most powerful MC. Celia is the young girl that falls for the ultimate bad guy.

Good Story

Good characters, good story. Took a really long time for the set up, though. And it leaves off in a cliffhanger. If the next book is on KU, then I’ll read it. Otherwise, no.
