REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED THE SERIES
I’ve made it no secret that the Chosen series is my favorite out of all of Denise Grover Swank’s work. What she does with Redemption is bring everything together in a way that’s explosive and satisfying. She never gives her characters easy wins, and sometimes they lose.
I’m happy with how Aiden was eliminated (perfection… killing him with love!). I was actually saddened for Raphael… he seemed so lost. Placing him with Emmanuella in the “afterlife” was fair. Alex can go eff himself for all eternity (let’s face it… he was a rapist. No rapist deserves absolution and his ending wasn’t brutal enough if you ask me. I’m a little biased on that subject.) Marcus’ departure was bittersweet. I wanted to get to know more about him.
I love how Will embraced his new-found abilities. He, Emma, and Jake are one heck of a superhero family! James is absolutely awesome and I knew he wasn’t going to fail his bestie. I volunteer my name has his baby mama, LOL! I won’t lie… the ending of this series left me wanting more. I wanted something more finite than literally flying away into happily ever after.
I loved this series. It’s a mish-mash of genres. It’s expansive. It’s mythological. The writing definitely improves with each installment, and it was definitely fun to watch Denise’s work evolve even if I was a couple years behind the original publishing. I’ll always read what she writes! **********TEN STARS**********
