Review: Redemption (Arotas #3) by Amy Miles

Buy-book-from-Amazon-button Add-to-Goodreads-buttonreviewBack when I started this series I thought it was going to be like every other YA PNR I've read. You know the type, teenage girl falls immediately in love with a boy and does stupid things. This series has gone above and beyond what I would have expected. It's definitely not your momma's romance. This series is totally bad ass. Each book gives you an inside look into a different character by alternating pov's. I feel like I know these characters so intimately and book three crushed me to my core. I said in my review for book 2 that no one is safe and book three proved that. I almost didn't believe what my eyes were reading. It was like I was in denial over the death(s) of a fictional character and I was not okay with it. Redemption was a bloody mess. I never shy away from gore but this will make some people squirm. The thing I loved about Redemption is that it was unpredictable. I had a million scenarios running around in my head and not one of them was right. I thought there would be a huge reunion between Roseline and Gabriel, but the author had other plans. Wicked plans. In retrospect, I wouldn't have had it any other way. I'm also glad that she wrote a novella after Redemption. I hate guessing what's supposed to happen next. I like to read where there author intends for it to end, not where my crazy imagination will take it.
