 Jenn's Review:

5 Amazing and beautiful stars


I’m trying to find the right words to describe how much I absolutely freaking loved this book! I’ve been a huge fan of the series from the beginning and happy danced when I found out we were getting a third book! And I can honestly say I wasn’t disappointed, in fact it surpassed any of my expectations. *Sigh* The Professor and Julianne.


Gabriel’s Redemption picks up not long after we leave Julia and Gabriel at the end of Rapture. They are enjoying being newlyweds, oh yes they are, and working on their careers, as one would expect from these two.


Things are not perfect for the newlyweds though; they definitely struggle with certain things and have their share of fights. Gabriel is still the mercurial Professor! But they work through things, coming to terms with new issues as well as ones that have haunted them all their lives. That is one of the things I appreciated most about this book; that while this couple struggles, they work together to find a way through things. They find strength and love in each other in way that just melts my heart.


Gabriel’s passion is one of his most amazing features, it’s always been what grabs my attention and refuses to let go. He is passionate about his love for Julianne and now wanting to start a family with her. I loved seeing that side of him especially after the way this journey began for him.


I don’t want to give too much of their journey away, but we definitely get to revisit a lot of the other characters as well, the good and the bad. I would definitely say that ‘Redemption’ is the perfect name for this book.


This series has been one of my favorites and while I’m sad to see the end, it was beautiful and my heart is happy. I think that Sylvain Reynard’s writing is some of the most amazing and beautiful and I can get lost in his words forever. I know that Gabriel and Julianne will stay with me as characters, inspiriting me with love and kindness; they will be my sticky little leaf.


I could go on for days declaring my love for these books and still not do them justice, so I’ll just say this – go read them, life is just better with Gabriel and Julianne and of course the Snarky Narrator!

Author Bio: I'm interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition - particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.

 

I'm also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.

 

I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex's Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House. For more information, see my Twitter account.
