BOOK REVIEW ❤ Deep Redemption by Tillie Cole


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.

Contemporary Dark Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.


Tillie Cole is definitely one of my favorite authors. I’ve loved everything she’s ever written, and  I have not been disappointed until now. Because Deep Redemption, for me, fell flat. Although the story is captivating, the romance between Rider and Harmony was nonexistent. The story went from meeting to love too quickly for my taste.

Cain’s story picks up where we left him in Souls Unfractured, dealing with his brother’s betrayal. At this point in the story, I am already sympathetic to Cain’s plight. He doesn’t fit in anywhere. Not in the MC due to his dishonesty and not in the cult because it deceived him. But Cain’s Redemption is found in love.

I did not feel a connection to Harmony. She never felt "real" to me, and I found myself skimming her storytelling.  Her story is much like the other women that came to the Hangman, which made her character too familiar. But once Harmony's truth is revealed, I did became more invested in the ending of her story.

In my opinion, there is not a lot of romance in this recent Hangman story, and the drama doesn't happen until near the end. This book indeed opens the door to the next book in the series and although I am not a huge fan of this one I will read the next.
