The Phoenix Trilogy

Suspenseful thrillers following a NYPD detective who battles a dark side longing for revenge. 

Ascension of the Phoenix

Book One

To rise from ashes, one must be a phoenix.

Detective Leila Wells has apprehended every criminal to cross her path, except for one. And when Bryan Foster returns, he devastates her world. To cope, she finds release in street fighting.

Successes with her fighting partner grant them an invitation to participate in the Rulers of the Realms Fighting Tag Tournament. But as she fights, a power begins to rise within her—a dark and angry blaze urging her toward revenge.
