The country of Caldor is currently being run under tyranny by the ruthless king, King Arken, and all hope seems lost every time an innocent being is murdered in cold blood. All hope seems lost...until Sir Robert, our main character, is introduced.
After a merciless bloodbath takes place under King Arken's command, Sir Robert and his counterparts figure it's time to speak up, and they launch a rebellion against the King. He and his men travel from village to village to seek solace and peace in a time of distress and pre-war chaos and find it with Blamour in the town of Riderwood.
The Literary Connoisseur 100% approves of Redemption! It has everything in it that makes me love a novel: action, adventure, a great plot, lovable characters, wonderful wording, and- most of all- a female character that DID NOT have me wanting to head for the hills. That is very important to me when I read a book because for me, it is all too common for a book to have a female character that makes me want to pull my hair out. But thankfully Redemption had a beautiful, brave and strong female character to fall in love with Sir Robert.
Redemption was a quick read, but I so desperately wish it was longer. Sir Robert, King Arken, their two armies and- of course- Flax the troll, have made my reading experience of Redemption more than enjoyable!
I enjoyed my adventure into Eric Rappe's book very, very much. It was packed full of action that had my heart pumping, but don't think for a moment that it was all serious. Some of those scenes with Sir Robert's knights had me literally laughing out loud! I hope, beyond all hope, that Eric continues Sir Robert's story...but based on the last chapter of Redemption, I have a feeling the story isn't quite over yet...
