Review: The Redeeming By Shiloh Walker


Read An Excerpt Online
Genre: ,

Length: Novella Price: 3.50

Cover art by Scott Carpenter

Bred for destruction but longing for redemption, this second chance is all they have.

Faced with the choice of torment or redemption, Jonah accepts the bargain laid out by his guardian angel as he lies dying in the street alone. Change…or die. Not a hard choice, it seems. But then he meets Lily and has to wonder just what he’s agreed to by accepting this new life.

Even the angels call Lily unique—and she is. Born of a demon, but longing to be more, her one wish is granted—temporarily. But now her time is running out and she has an impossible task set before her. It doesn’t help that she can’t stop thinking of Jonah…or the very real demons that will come hunting her once they realize where she is.
With demons and angels tracking their every move, Jonah and Lily have a life to save before they can save themselves.

This novel was published previously, but has been revised and expanded for this release.

Warning: This title contains some hot loving, a desperate struggle between wrong and right, some angels, some demons and a race against time.
My thoughts:
I really enjoyed this story although I think it would be so much better as a novel. There was so much more that could have gone on if this was a longer story, but it was very well put together. As a fan of Shiloh Walker's work I was hooked from the beginning. People who have never read her work would enjoy this book, a little taste of Shiloh Walker , if you will. I think this story would do for new readers what her other books have done for me, keep me hooked on a good thing.I became very attached to the characters and was sad to see the story end. Overall I would say that this is not her best work but it gives readers of her work what they are looking for, a wonderful story.
I would give this story 4 of 5 Stars.

Hi :)
Excellent review.
The warning itself would get me to buy and read this book: "contains hot loving, desperate struggle between right & wrong, angels, demons, a race against time." :)
Thanks again,
