By Tara S Wood
Vesper Hyde is a model Penitent. Solitary. Skilled. Deadly. Only once has she ever lost a target, even though it almost cost her life. Now the one that got away is back with a vengeance, and this time he’s determined to finish the job. She needs to overcome the whispers of doubt and let her instinct and training take over to redeem her failure. But on this second time around, she doesn’t expect a sidekick. A very sexy, stubborn, human sidekick.
Homicide Detective Decker Price has seen it all, including the murder of his wife at the hands of a twisted serial killer. When another murder pitches him headfirst into a world of vampires, witches, and sorcery, he is given a chance to mend shattered parts of his soul. But Vesper’s world is as dark and alluring as the Penitent herself and he will come face to face with echoes of his past in order to help her keep a vicious enemy at bay.
If they are to succeed, they will need to push aside both their failings and work together to ensure the balance of their worlds remains unchanged. Redemption comes at a cost – is their love worth the price?
I will keep this short as I am not one to ramble.
I found redemption in Blood a riveting read. The characters are very believable and there are no blatant grammatical errors.
The descriptions of the characters and places are very clear and leave you with a spectacular image of what is going on.
Now for the good bit!!
Vesper Hyde is a wonderfully smouldering young Penitent with a troubled past who is good at her job. However this is all she ever does, until she meets the dashing Decker Price a police detective she would rather not get to close too but fate has other plans.
I found Vesper and all the other characters in this book to be very believable and one or two of them smokin hot!! Tara has a way of slipping a very vivid image of what her characters and their surroundings look like into your imagination.
The plot sweeps you along with it and you find yourself rooting for the good guy and yes I almost boo’d the bad guy’s *laughs*
The descriptions of scenes and scenarios were very detailed. I felt like a fly on the wall watching the action as it happened and yes a voyeur when all the action was going on in the bedroom.
If you are faint of heart then pass this book by as the descriptions of the violence are as graphic as the sex scenes.
Tara most definitely has a flair for the dramatic and if you like drama you will love this book!
I have to say that I couldn’t find any fault with Redemption in Blood apart from it ended way too soon!
I will be looking froward to reading the next book in the series.
Redemption in Blood is gripping and graphic so it well deserves the 5 hearts I have given it.
