DEEP REDEMPTION by Tillie Cole - REVIEW

SYNOPSIS
ONLY THROUGH BLOOD CAN THE DEEPEST REDEMPTION BE FOUND…

He was born to ascend.
He was destined to lead.
He was never meant to fail.


Prophet Cain lies broken and defeated on the floor of his cell. A cell he has been thrown into by the one person who was supposed to stand by his side until the end. His flesh and blood, his only companion. His beloved twin brother.

Cain has sacrificed everything for his people. He left the safety and security of his life of study to infiltrate the infamous Hades Hangmen. He lived with them, rode with them, and then betrayed them. All in the name of a faith he can now feel slipping away from him. Like everything else he once held dear…

But then his isolation is broken. Another prisoner is brought to the cell next to his. A woman fighting her own demons and fears. A woman who Cain understands needs him, as he needs her.

As the connection between them grows, so does Cain’s resolve. He will right the wrongs he has done. He will atone for the evil acts carried out in his name. He will save the one he loves…

… Even if the battle takes him to the gates of hell itself.

Contemporary Dark Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.


REVIEW

First of all, I need to tell you that you should read the others in this series before you start DEEP REDEMPTION. You won't know what is going on if you don't. 

Rider is alone and in a desperate situation since the events in the third book in the series. You can feel his growing despair. His feelings of hopelessness start creeping further and further in until he finds it hard to even imagine a life outside of his prison cell. The fact that his faith has been shattered and everything he's grown to think of as truth has been shown to be a lie has devastated him. He truly feels like he deserves death for all the pain and destruction he has caused - even if he wasn't aware the extent of some of the damage. 

Even worse though is his twin brother's betrayal. How could his own blood turn his back on him? Beat him? Destroy him? 

It isn't until Rider realizes someone has been placed in the cell next to his that he starts to see light in his world again. Harmony gives him a little hope, but when he realizes what she is being prepared for, he practically loses his mind. He'll stop at nothing to save her from harm - even if it means asking for help from the people who have no reason to help him at all. The people he betrayed. The people he realized were more family to him than his own twin brother.

DEEP REDEMPTION is an emotional read. You'll feel so much for Rider and really hope that everything turns out okay for him. If you haven't started this series yet, you need to. A word of warning though. This series is dark. It is violent. It features some very taboo subjects, but the author talks about them at the beginning of the book. 

I can't wait for the next book in the series. There are so many characters I want to learn more about. Great job, Tillie. Keep up the writing! We want more.
