A review by thatisagreatread
Redemption by Karen Kingsbury


I had my doubts in the beginning, but was pleasantly surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this first book. Then again, I loved reading the Twilight Series and these books are similar....with a Christian spin to them. The character development was excellent and the books are a quick read (again, similar to Twilight). Just like Twilight, the first 150 pages are spent introducing you to each of the characters, but once you get past all the "introductions" and get into the story, the story is actually quite intriguing....making you want to quickly get to the end and pick up the next book in the series. The story, while sometimes somewhat predictable, still sucked me in and I found myself crying through several chapters.

I will say this: these books are not for those who are skeptical or critical about Christianity. If you are like this, or just a literature snob in general, don't even bother reading them. You will be disappointed.
