REVIEW: Redemptor

“The only thing more powerful than a wish is purpose.”


The Raybearer was one of my favorite fantasy reads of last year and Redemptor is a beautiful ending to the story. Tarisai is the principled heroine that we all need in our lives. She learns some hard lessons as she must build her council and enter the Underworld. We see benevolent Dayo, brave Sanjeet and kindhearted Kirah by her side as she must find 12 new rulers to bear her Ray. We see more interesting cultures and characters from Aritsar and Songland, some who are ruthless and power hungry and others who are perhaps even more principled than Tarisai. 

For me it is the characters who carry this story but the world building continued to be immersive and the temptations and horrors of the Underworld were fabulous. That would be my one criticism, I wanted more time trekking through the Underworld.

Redemptor is a fabulous ending to the series, I’d love another book in this world though! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this novel. All opinions above are my own.
