Review of Redemption by Courtney Nuckels and Rebecca Gober

by - March 25, 2012

Redemption is the second book in the Night Marchers series.  

He would endure a thousand deaths for her, but would she let him? Torn between two men that love her, Emma Townsend is forced to make choices no seventeen-year-old should ever be forced to make. With her friends at her side, Emma embarks on an adventure full of danger, deceit and betrayal as she tries to redeem Kai, the man who made the ultimate sacrifice for her. When Emma discovers that setting a Night Marcher free is no easy task, she is forced to make a very unlikely alliance. How far will Emma be willing to go to save Kai, and will she be able to do so before it's too late?

I was really disappointed by the cover of this. The cover of Night Marchers is beautiful and this would be too if they hadn't unnessarily stretched it out. It looks really unproffesional. That aside, the book is pretty damn good.

We start a day or too where we left off, with Emma being driven at breakneck speed down the road by her worried father, who promptly drops her off at the airport and sends her to Kaylee, Emma's best friend. Naturally Emma concocts a plan to secretly come back almost immediately after arriving and camps out in the jungle with Kaylee and Tristan.

I started to notice more things when I read this. I think some parts are written by Rebecca Gober and other parts written by Courtney Nuckels (well, they are co-authors). The problem I have with this is that I believe (don't take this as fact) that one of them can well pretty damn well. That would be Courtney, from what I've seen of a short story of hers. However, the other Author... needs to brush up on her grammar some. I've seen everything from waist becoming waste to 'night and shining armor' in these books – but the spelling is just fine in other places.

The story is a bit shorter than the first book and I got through it in about 2 hours. Everything was wrapped up neatly with a pretty bow but I did feel as if there was something missing that I can't pinpoint. It was nice to meet Kao properly though and his character added a lot to the story.
