BBNYA Semifinalist Spotlight Tour | 13 Nov 2022
This year, the Book Blogger’s Novel of the Year Award (BBNYA) is celebrating the 50
books that made it into Round Two with a mini spotlight blitz tour for each title.
I am trying my best to be a part of this spotlight blitz. Today’s BBNYA semifinalist spotlight features the book named ‘Ascension of the Phoenix’ by Jessica Piro.
To rise from ashes, one must be a phoenix.
With her skills in martial arts, detective Leila Wells is considered one of the best cops in New York City because she has apprehended every criminal to cross her path, except for one. And when the serial killer, Bryan Foster, returns, he devastates her world by killing her partner, but oddly leaves her alive.
To cope with this extreme loss, 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. As Leila fights, she begins to heal, to accept how things have changed, and to possibly love again, but suspicions mount that the competition isn’t as innocent as it appears while a power rises within her—a dark and angry blaze urging her toward revenge.
