Just when you think you have it all figured out, BAM there is a huge twist to the story. I was not anticipating the twist at all. If you still question why Wren and Rhys are the way they are, I feel the twist helped explained it.
If you are squeamish and unable to handle reading about the pain that someone is going through, then this book is not for you. Please take heed to the warning in the front of the book – they are there for a reason.
Mary Palmerin’s writing is unique and will pull you in and keep a hold of you from the beginning to the end. She has a way of making you feel what the character is going through in his mind and actions. The writing is good and the editing is near flawless.
If you can handle uncomfortable dark reads, you do not want to miss this one. Each book I read by M. Palmerin makes me more and more of a fan. Even though the books are sickening and make you squirm, I love them!
The story is about Rhys and Wren. Both suffered a past full of nightmares. Wren's life took a different path in life than Rhys. Rhys committed a sin at a young age knowing it was a sin in the eyes of God, yet the ways of the unfair world brought forth a night Rhys will not be redeemed of. No resolution and no forgiveness for his sins will erase his past. His past set forth the current actions of his present. Rhys is stuck in an uncontrolled past. Rhys considered himself someone dark, dangerous, and deadly. Rhys thrived off the smell of fear.
Rhys chased his past searching for Wren. Rhys was merely a man who wore the scars from his past. Rhys craved her innocence, the taste on his tongue, the feeling in is soul, the fire that fed the monster.
Rhys didn’t want to be absolved from his sins.The atonement and resolution he once craved as a boy was no longer present.He wouldn’t be able to stop until he got mercy from Wren. Rhys needed Wren's forgiveness. Rhys believed that Wren could redeem the bad man he had become.
Past references are told in italics. Story is told from third person perspective.
Both characters seek redemption from the people they allow into their lives. Rhys sucked the breath and blood from innocent girls hoping to purge his body of the evil inside. Wren hoped to purge her body of the sins it committed with the innocent man who she allowed inside her body.
Rhys discovered early in life that the devil disguises itself in the form of innocent people.
The story ended abruptly. Not sure if it was intended to conclude this way or to indicate another installment.
This book definitely took me to a place I’ve never been before. If you are the least bit squeamish, this story is not for you. This is the darkest book I’ve ever read, and I discovered books this dark are just not for me. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t well written. It was, I just did not care for the story line.
Redeeming Rhys is about whether or not evil is learned or if you are born with it. Rhys took me on his journey, and outside my hearts and flowers box. I did not enjoy the journey (sorry I am being honest here) but I have to give props to the author for being utterly creative.
I was taken on one hell of a ride with Rhys and Wren to see if his absolution is too late, and I have to be honest, the things he did in the beginning of this book, I didn’t want absolution for him. Not one bit. And then later on. Jesus. Yeah, no way...too far for me the things this guy did. And there was a HUGE twist in this story, I was completely thrown. So, I have to say the author definitely succeeded in evoking many emotions from me with this story, it was just a bit too twisted for my liking.
This book was different from the ones I am used to reading. I enjoy dark reads, and this one was definitely dark, but it goes further and delves into the mind of a seriously disturbed man. He is violent and murderous as a result of the wrongs that were committed to him as a child.
"He didn't think he could hate any more than he did. He wasn't sure if he was making up for all the wrong that had been done to him, or if it was his calling; who he was born to become."
Being in Rhys's mind was a chilling experience. The author knows how to keep the reader hooked, as I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see where Rhy's obsession would lead to. Both Rhys and Wren had horrible childhood experiences, and both of them deal with their pain in completely different ways. Wren desperately sought normalcy, while Rhys embraced his insanity. While Wren tries to hold her pain inside, Rhys projects his pain onto others.
"He was convinced he didn't have a heart. Not anymore. Maybe not ever."
I couldn't wait for the two of them to come face to face again, after being apart for ten years. The author did a fantastic job with the buildup leading to their reunion.Read more ›

A very twisted relationship that is far from romantic . Wish there was little less religious references in it but understand why the author needed to have it in story .Published 2 months ago by Athena Winters
