The Gift Legacy : Redemption (* * * * *)

I’m don’t read a lot of contemporary/urban fantasy fiction, but I’ve read enough books in my life to easily spot a good one, regardless the genre.

There is something in JP Mclean’s series that I couldn’t find in many other books of this genre: it’s original, it’s plausible, it’s intelligent. No cliches, no stereotypes, no romanticized love stories… But that’s not all and hopefully, after I read the last book in the series, I’ll be able to fully explain this beautiful reading experience. redemption

I’m grateful to Susan Toy, a Canadian mystery writer (“Island in the Cloud”)  and a tireless promoter of other authors, who drew my attention to The Gift series. It is proof of how much reading recommendations matter. Thank you Susan, for this wonderful ‘gift’.

And now a few words about Redemption (5 stars!)

The third book in JP Mclean’s series is as mesmerizing as its prequels, “Awakening” and “Revelation”. The characters continue to change and grow and the story becomes more complex. The enemies are more sinister and the lines between good and evil are often blurred. “Redemption” is an action-packed novel with an unforgettable, nail-biting, ‘fast and furious’ finale, but also a story of loyalty, friendship, trust and love. Fast-paced, sensual, fun and fanciful … I loved it.

Not unlike my characters, I lead a double life: by day I'm a mother, a friend, a colleague, and the queen of my kitchen. When the moon rises, however, I shift into my other self and, as Queen of the Night, I reign the magical world of my imagination.
