Title: Recoil: A Ripples in the Status Quo Story #1
Author Name & Publisher: R. Phoenix (Excessica Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: December 2, 2015 – 62 pgs


In a world flipped upside down where the supernatural now rule over humans, a financially struggling vampire must face the ultimate attack on his humanity: breaking a mortal to slavery. Groomed to fight, the human is no easy picking, but Khaz has an ace in the hand in the form of an alluring magic many find impossible to resist.

Noah has spent the past ten years since the Takeover on the run. His entire life has been one of hardship and hatred, and he’s only survived by losing himself to both. When he meets the vampire, he’s sure he’ll hate him every bit as much as he hates supernatural creatures. The problem is… Khaz isn’t like anyone he’s ever met before.

Book One of Khaz and Noah’s story…

This world the author created in this book was amazing!

The whole different take on vampires, I thought it was really awesome! This was a very short story so I do not want to go to much into it and accidently spoil anything.

I loved the characters in this book and the way this author wrote this story. You just start getting to know Khaz and Noah which was awesome but at the same time sad because you can not help wanting to know more about them. There was a steam in this book and what the vampires are like in this world. After reading this I can not wait to read the next book in this series!

So I will leave this review with… I loved this Novella and would definitely recommend it!



This was an interesting story that plays off what would happen if humans weren’t in control anymore.
Although I connected to both characters and really enjoyed watching their relationship develop and evolve as the story progressed, I felt like at times I just didn’t understand what was going on. Not to mention the ending. I felt like we were sort of left hanging on this ledge and wouldn’t be getting any answers or solution to the situation, which kind of sucked.
All in all though, it was a good story that I would recommend.

After years of wasting her B.A. in English and being the adult no one wanted talking to their children about the usefulness of college degrees, R. Phoenix decided it was time to dust off the old nag. She settled down and started writing books in the Ripples in the Status Quo universe, a dark world of her own devising where supernatural beings have risen up and taken over the world – and relegated humans to the very bottom of the food chain. These stories are the paranormal romance chronicles surrounding the vampires, werewolves, witches, and humans whose experiences are outside the norm. Her search history is for research purposes, not nefarious schemes. (Really.)

When she’s not writing, learning new synonyms for naughty words, or knee-deep in sexy gifs (to make sure scenes are anatomically possible, of course), she’s apparently preparing for the apocalypse. She’s attempting to learn how to cook without setting fire to the kitchen, garden without drowning the plants, and tend to what she suspects will be a horde of ducks. Her son, husband, and cats occasionally let her take naps. Uninterrupted. She’s spoiled rotten that way.
