Title: Deep Redemption
ONLY THROUGH BLOOD CAN THE DEEPEST REDEMPTION BE FOUND…
He was born to ascend.
He was destined to lead.
He was never meant to fail.
Prophet Cain lies broken and defeated on the floor of his cell. A cell he has been thrown into by the one person who was supposed to stand by his side until the end. His flesh and blood, his only companion. His beloved twin brother.
Cain has sacrificed everything for his people. He left the safety and security of his life of study to infiltrate the infamous Hades Hangmen. He lived with them, rode with them, and then betrayed them. All in the name of a faith he can now feel slipping away from him. Like everything else he once held dear…
But then his isolation is broken. Another prisoner is brought to the cell next to his. A woman fighting her own demons and fears. A woman who Cain understands needs him, as he needs her.
As the connection between them grows, so does Cain’s resolve. He will right the wrongs he has done. He will atone for the evil acts carried out in his name. He will save the one he loves…
… Even if the battle takes him to the gates of hell itself.

This book has all the feels. Or perhaps I should say Rider/Cain more specifically. For the majority of It Ain’t Me, Babe I felt sorry for him. You knew going in that he wasn’t going to get Mae no matter how much he wanted her. Then the readers get the coup de grâce that will seal his fate where the Hangmen are concerned. His actions in Heart Recaptured make the readers hate him a little more. At the end of Souls Unfractured we see that he is finally getting his eyes opened to the atrocities of The Order. Just a heads up that you have to read the other books in the Hades Hangmen series before you can step into Rider’s hell.
For me Harmony has been the most surprising character in the series. Without spoiling it for anyone else who has not read this book I was shocked by her character and where she came from. Her life as a female member of The Order has been exactly what you would assume and so much more. Her role in The Order lands her in a cell away from the other members. That solitary confinement is how she meets Rider, the voice on the other side of the wall. They form a friendship that turns into so much more.
The three previous books in the series are centered on the Hangmen and club life. Much of Deep Redemption takes place within the cult. The Author’s Note in each book stresses that these practices are inspired by the beliefs of various religious movements. So much of it is shocking. I went into this series knowing I was getting dark romance. There is the abuse and the evil that you’d expect but it didn’t ever get over the top for shock factor. It all seemed plausible.
The history that Tillie drops on readers here is just astounding. Questions that I never even thought to ponder are answered in the end. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the next book. While Cole delivered a good wrap up for this story there is still so much left to tell. Also the next books set up appear to be less cult and more of something else.
