ONLY THROUGH BLOOD CAN THE DEEPEST REDEMPTION BE FOUND…

He was born to ascend.
He was destined to lead.

I had been two men in my life. I was beginning to understand that neither of them were real. They were both the ultimate pretenders. Rider pretended to be a Hangman, but always stood on the outside, looking in. Cain pretended he was a prophet, outwardly faking strength, yet drowning in fear underneath. But if both of these men were a ruse, then who the hell was I? Who was the real me?

The Hades Hangmen series is my fave amongst all of Tillie Cole’s works. It is the reason why I became a blogger last year. I was dying when all of my blogger friends got advanced copies of SOULS UNFRACTURED and I sat on my couch having a little pity party for one because I had to wait like the rest of the non-blogging community. For those of you who haven’t read this series yet, and have plans to read it, skip my review, because I will be mentioning tidbits from the previous books. I will, however, NOT be spoiling this one!! I truly believe you have to go into DEEP REDEMPTION completely blind!!

I have had a love/hate relationship with Rider “aka” Cain since the very first book. I really thought he was a good guy till we found out towards the end of book one that he was Prophet Cain, future leader of THE ORDER, the psychotic cult that tortured and raped poor Mae and her sisters, “aka”The Cursed, along with other girls since they were only eight-years-old. These men are just a bunch of sadistic pedophiles. But in book two we learn that Rider had no knowledge of the raping rituals and he was beyond horrified when he witnesses the debauchery for the first time. He was raised along with his twin brother in seclusion and they spent all of their time learning their scriptures and preparing for the day that Rider would take his place as Prophet Cain, leader of The Order. When he tries to save a child from being raped, he is beaten and thrown in a dirty prison cell. His twin decides to take on his identity and orders daily beatings for Rider until he agrees to accept their ways. This was how it all ended for Rider in book two. He did manage to save Mae and her sisters from being kidnapped as well and that’s how we all ended up believing that there was still a lot of good in Rider and that he just might be worthy of redemption.

So for almost a year, those of us who can’t get enough of this series have been waiting patiently for Rider’s story. We knew it was going to be a really dark and tumultuous road he would be placed on that would lead to the path of redemption. I will say that out of all the four books, this one wasn’t as hard to endure with the dark elements. Rider is the one who suffers the most and I guess it’s what this character has to endure in order to truly be redeemed in the eyes of the faithful readers of this series. His suffering and loneliness broke my heart at times and I just about loved him as much as I loved Flame…well, almost as much anyhow.

I wondered and hypothesized who Rider’s love interest would be. I was happy with the woman who captured his heart and she fell fiercely in love with him as well. She comes into Rider’s life when he is almost at the end of his rope. He’s so disillusioned and beyond shattered by his brother’s betrayal, but when this woman ends up being imprisoned in the cell next to his, they end up bonding through the brief moments that they are able to have conversations through the wall that separates them. This woman was the one with the most strength and courage out of all the heroines in this series so far and truly ends up being Rider’s salvation. I know that we will get more of their story in the future books as we do with all the previous characters with each installment. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind if we got another book for each couple as well. I truly believe there is so much more to learn about their lives together. I really enjoyed spending time with all of them and seeing how much they’ve grown as couples and learning of the new joys and sorrows that they face.

 

DEEP REDEMPTION is packed with huge revelations!! I screamed. I cried. And by the time it was over, I was sad to have to say goodbye for now. I was so engrossed in the story I swear that it felt like it took hardly any time to finish this almost 400-page book!!

 

DEEP REDEMPTION is available now!! I hope that you’ll enjoy it as much as I have!

*****Dee’s Review*****

5 ~Save Me~ Stars*****

What a beautiful and emotional story. The more I read these books , the more I love them. From the moment I got on the back of the Hades Hangmen motorcycle on that very first book, I haven’t been able to get off. Tillie Cole has given me the ride of a lifetime with this series. I cried, laughed and even cried laughing with this beautiful book. I couldn’t have possibly loved it more.

It is a very challenging task to review this book without giving too much away. So many secrets are revealed in this book, that even mentioning a name could spoil it for the reader.
So, please forgive me for the vague description…

If you have been following this series, like me you’ve had a love/hate relationship with the hero Cain. But in this book, I saw a completely different side of him. His faults were not totally his own, his mistakes were almost made blindly because, in my eyes, this man really didn’t know any better. He grew up being groomed to the be the leader of this terrible cult. He grew up in a twisted world, and to him having these beliefs, and taking part in the cruel practices was the norm. In most of the book Cain spends time locked up in a cell, but even after he comes out, the shackles holding his heart are made out of the deep guilt he carries around, and no matter where he is, freedom is never a possibility.

Harmony is a very beautiful and very brave character. She comes from Puerto Rico, from a different commune, her beauty deemed her a cursed sister of Eve, and Judah has plans to marry her, in order to fulfill their prophecy and keep The Order safe from doomsday. As much as Harmony hates the idea of marrying the prophet, she believes it’s her duty in order to save the people of New Zion. Her courage and determination to carry on with her obligations will falter the moment she meets the man staying in the holding cell next to hers; Cain.

After encouraging and giving each other words of hope, Cain and Harmony form a bond. They can’t see or touch each other, but they feel close to one another. A fierce desire to protect the other, and a love that can mean the salvation of their souls will bloom inside the walls of those darks cells. What will happen once they come face to face for the first time?

Judah is planning a big attack on the Hades of Hangmen MC. His greed and thirst for total domination knows no bounds, and he will prove to be a very powerful adversary for the Hangmen MC.

I loved the excitement and thrill in which all the events developed in this story. I was hooked, biting my nails with every chapter.

Another fascinating book by Tillie Cole, where she makes us fall in love with a beautiful character that I once used to hate. This explosive series keeps getting better and better, never a dull moment, and never the same. I am totally addicted!
