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.
Deep Redemption picks up just where we left off finding Cain locked in a cell by his twin. There we witness the continued brutality being carried out by Judah. Cain is subjected to daily beatings and only given enough care to keep him alive for the next round. Most troubling is that he feels he is responsible for all the wrong doings carried out by The Order, and he is there for deserving of every lashing he receives. When the last ounce of Hope seems to be drained from his body and he welcomes tough comma salvation comes in the adjacent cell.
I found this book to be far less graphic as the previous books when it came to the abuse of the cult. This most likely is due to the fact that the previous books have been so descriptive far less information was needed. Or perhaps it was because Cain himself previously had such a little knowledge of the evil deeds that were being carried out in the name of their so-called God.
In typical form the book is told from dual point of views, Cain/Rider and Harmony. However, there were also a few chapters told from Styx point of view. This not only allowed us to revisit the MC and some of the characters we loved from previous books, but it also gave us more insight to the club’s actions when it came to wanting to take down the cult.
Maybe it’s just me, but when I read I tend to feel like the lead character is the center focus and his or her love interest is more of a supporting character. I did not feel this way about this book. Yes this book was Rider’s book, but I felt it was just as much Harmony’s book. Her character was extremely well-written. The gentle strength and the determination she had, even in the face of the abuse she would have suffered growing up in The Order, made me awestruck by this woman.
No spoilers, but I I’m torn with how the book concluded. Some issues wrapped up almost too perfectly, while others were left unresolved. But I will say this, I’m very curious as to what direction our characters will take in the next installment of the dark romance series The Hades Hangmen.
