Redemption by Randi Cooley Wilson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I feel like I need to make a pretty big disclaimer before I launch into my review of this book. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review, and I read this without first reading the other books in the series that come before this one. This book is not a stand-alone, and I'm pretty sure I would be rating this book higher if I knew these characters, situations, and understood this world before reading this one. I think especially since this is a paranormal book, there is a certain amount of world building and some learning about different groups of characters that once in place, can allow the reader to have an unique and exciting reading experience. I write this review knowing that I would likely be in a different place if I'd read the first two books in the series. That said...
Eve has been separated from her protector and man she loves, Asher, and has now been given a new protector. This person is someone she doesn't trust, and she is obviously grieving the loss of Asher in her life. Once she allows herself to accept Gage as her protector, Eve comes to learn things that alters a lot of what she thought she knew about the world. She is angry about all the secrets being kept from her, and is continuing to try and train to be able to take care of herself in a variety of dangerous situations.
Again, I don't have all the background knowledge to fully appreciate what I know will be much more dramatic twists and turns for readers of this series. However, I was able to connect with these characters and their situations on some level, and found myself engaged in the story and wanting to know more about all of them. After reading this, I feel like I would like to go back and catch up with the first two (even though I will know some spoilers from this book), and then continue with the series. As I've mentioned, I don't recommend reading this as a stand alone, but I would recommend this series to people interested in a good paranormal romance.
