BBNYA SPOTLIGHT!!! Ascension of the Phoenix by Jessica Piro

This year, the Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award (BBNYA) is celebrating the 55 books that made it into Round Two with a mini spotlight for each title. For those of you who don’t know, BBNYA is a yearly competition where book bloggers from all over the world read and score books written by indie authors, ending with 15 finalists and one overall winner.

It’s been an absolute pleasure to be part of the BBNTA team again in 2022 and I’m thrilled to be part of the spotlight tours to celebrate our fantastic semi-finalists! Today I’m starting things off by spotlighting Ascension of the Phoenix by Jessica Piro.

About the Book

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.
