Redemption - Erica Hayes Originally Reviewed At: Mother/Gamer/WriterRating: 5 out of 5 Tantalizing ControllersReview Source: Blog TourReviewer: HeatherVampires, Demons, Angels, oh my stars. I don’t even know where to begin… Redemption, The Seven Signs is book #2, and I’m all but salivating to read the first after this steamy, bloody, tantalizing story. I’ll forewarn though, it has a lot of yummy, erotically written sexual scenes (and sexual suggestion) that hold nothing back, tossing you head first (no pun intended) into the moment. Japheth is a fallen angel, tossed from heaven by the archangel Michael and for fourteen hundred odd years, he’s made it his mission to become redeemed. On Earth, he allows himself only the pleasure of hunting and killing evil, the minions of Satan. He takes no pleasure from the flesh and allows nothing gratifying into his life, which earns him the nickname frigid, icy, and frosty. It matches his blue angelfire perfectly until… Rose Harley was just a young woman with huge dreams before she became seduced, confused, and then forced into the world of bloody thirst. She seeks no redemption because she doesn’t believe it possible, not for her, and certainly not after what she’s done. Instead, she is a vampire; Rose is a slave in every aspect from her body to her fangs. Still, her instinct is to fight back, not for her soul, but to stay out of Hell. Her job is to hunt and kill fallen angels, a job she excels at, until… Two unlikely supernaturals are thrown together in this quick paced, suck you in until you beg for more, read. There is passion; there is lust, greed and envy as the story twists and turns in this multiperson point-of-view apocalyptic fight for the future. There is action, sex, mystery, and suspense rolled into one super charged ball of fury that will keep you on the edge of your seat, frozen in stupefying wonder. Want to know how it all plays out? I can tell you that I barely scratched the surface, so you better read it. While I started with #2, I would suggest starting with the first. I was able to grasp it, but I typically won’t read anything out of sequence unless I have to. I’ve read a lot of paranormal/fantasy. This is by far the perfect blend for adults. It’s real, real in the fantasy sort of way, but real nonetheless. This isn’t your wishy washy teenage angst filled romance. The pull, the fight, all of it drips with a human edge, which brings you to the front lines. If you love steamy romance, read it. If you love PNR/UF/Apocalypse read it.
