Sarah's Review of DEEP REDEMPTION (Hades Hangmen, #4) by Tillie Cole

Deep Redemption (Hades Hangmen, #4)

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.

*Unpopular opinion alert*

First, let me say that I'm obsessed with Tillie's writing. It's so amazingly smart, heartfelt and true. Flame and Maddie's story gripped me like nothing I've read before. Knowing that, Deep Redemption was so highly anticipated for me, I was supremely underwhelmed. 

Rider is finding himself at war with his religious beliefs. I can relate. He's trying to find the balance between what he grew up to believe and what's right. In the end, he's torn but gets the HEA he deserves. 

Harmony, I liked you a lot. I kind of don't know how you could trust Stephen, Samson and Solomon though, since you went through what you did in your previous life. She was just so trusting. Like, The Order are the worst people ever, they're abusive and horrific, but you just trust these people with your life. Meh. 

I just didn't feel the emotional connection that I did with the other Hades books. Even Ky and Lylah, whom I didn't love all that much, gave me more of an emotional pull. Not sure what happened. 

Also, I don't like how Rider's relationship with the Hangmen ended. I hope in later books they'll come to trust him. He's earned it and should get it. He's a good man and was only doing what he thought was the right thing. 

At any rate, I'm still invested in the Hades Hangmen series and I can't wait to read more. This was just a blip on the radar for me.
