Redemption: The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer
Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite
Redemption: The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer by Andrew Joyce is a fantastic book. Most of us have read Mark Twain's stories about two young boys and their life in Hannibal, Missouri by the time we are in the sixth grade. What a rare treat it was for me to meet them again when I am old and gray. Andrew Joyce presented me with the chance of seeing two old friends and sharing their new lives.
Redemption opens as Tom and Huck are joining the Civil War to fight for the South they so love. It doesn't take long for them to realize the battlefield is not where they want to be and so starts the adult adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer. They desert the army and head out West to see San Francisco. When they arrive, Tom makes plans to take a boat to China. Huck decides on wandering around until he finds a place to call home. Tom never makes it to China but does find a life for himself in Hawaii. Huck becomes a sheriff in several different towns before settling down in Redemption. Each have their own exciting activities before they once again meet up and share the life of the Wild West together, twelve years later.
Andrew Joyce is a genius in bringing two beloved characters back to life. Redemption: The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer is destined to be a five star top seller. I was thrilled to have the opportunity of reuniting with two well-loved characters from my youth. I loved Tom and Huck then and I love them even more today as written about by the brilliant Andrew Joyce. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you for a few hours of wonderful reading.

Like another reviewer, I to would have liked to see Tom and Huck end up living close to each other at the end of the book.
I really enjoyed this and I think maybe, Andrew Joyce is a reincarnation of the original author, MARK TWAIN.
As the saying goes, REDEMPTION is cheat at three times the price, don't take my word buy it it will be the best $3 you ever spent.
I would have liked to have seen a little more character development of Tom. The author introduces a third character into the story and he does a great job connecting us to him, but unfortunately, I felt the story was more about the adventures Huck and Jed. The story line surrounding Tom seemed a little forced and didn’t seem to fit as well into the big picture for me. This would be my only complaint of the novel.
The story really comes together when all three characters arrive in Redemption. My favorite part of the book was the showdown - it was pure western writing at its best. For that alone I would recommend this to lovers of the genre.

Peter Walsh Author of Genesis & Other Short Stories
The idea for a sequel of the famous Mark Twain book to follow their further adventures already is brilliant. And its realization not just enjoyable reading, the author must have done some profound historical research to tell the story so vividly. Tom and Huck are soldiers in the Civil War, become friends with a young guy from the other side and the strong friendship of the three is one of the common threads through the book. In the course each lives his own adventure - one falls in love and lives far away from the others for long years, one becomes part of an Indian village and the third marshall of several towns to keep the peace, but they all meet again and fight a final mission - each of them for different reasons. Exciting and interesting story, loveable heros - I really can recommend this book. For me - I can't wait for the next book of Andrew Joyce to be released. A wish of mine - that this book will have a German edition soon, so my friends can read it as well, especially, since Mark Twain's bestseller is reading material in many schools here in Germany.
Mich interessieren z.B. auch sehr die Indianer, über die man so einiges - eingebunden in die spannende Geschichte der nun Erwachsenen Huck und Tom - erfährt. Hoffentlich wird es auch bald ins Deutsche übersetzt!
Endlich wissen wir, was aus den Helden des Kinderbuches von Mark Twain - Huck Finn und Tom Saywer - geworden ist!
