Although this novel is a sci-fi/adventure story, it is also a coming of age story, a coming of age of spirituality, of spiritual growth and understanding. Ann comes of age spiritually. Quoting the late great William Faulkner, "the past is never past"...... Without the past we cannot learn how to connect to our future, our spiritual future. The past has lessons we can learn and from that previous spiritual path we can enter into a new present and a profound future with infinite possibilities. ...more

Redemption follows the story of Ann, a successful business woman who thinks she has everything under control. Well, everything from the nightmare that she keeps having: an endless spiral which really sets her off. Unable to cope with her bad dreams, she decides to visit a psychic who ‘makes’ her relive her past lives in order to get to terms with her current life.

As some of you have probably noticed, this book took me almost a month to read. However, that fact does not mean that I didn't enjoy R

This is one of those books that I can't seem to find the right words to express how much I enjoyed it. You are taken on a ride to the past, to the future and more. This book is easy to read and if you are a sci-fi lover there is no doubt that you will love this one!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via StoryCartel.

A Breezy Route to Redemption via Reincarnation

Jacklyn Lo’s debut novel, Redemption, is a fast-paced and somewhat trippy read—Artificial Intelligence meets New Age—which enters the burgeoning Visionary Fiction genre market (Reincarnation sub-category) with bursts of brilliance that bodes well for her future.

Skipping over any plot summary, which is included in several other reviews, I’ll comment on Redemption’s place in the increasingly sophisticated multi-lifetime fiction arena (think Kate Atkins

Redemption is a marvelous introduction to its author, Jacklyn Lo. It stands as her debut novel, and leaves the reader demanding she grace us with further literary projects.

Although the book is set in the future, and technology is advanced beyond what we now experience, Ms. Lo successfully captures the timeless essence of life as she aptly
retells the age old story of the soul on its tumultuous journey to spiritual completion and fulfillment, via the rounds of birth and death known as reincarnatio

‘Birth is not a beginning. Death is not an end.’

This novel is a ‘supernatural time-travelling thriller with sci-fi and metaphysics,’ but I think that it is much more than that. This book asks some important questions about life, death, reincarnation, God and the nature of sacrifice, but it does so in a sensitive and entertaining way, with the help of many characters and a great story.

‘Redemption’ is a fast-paced thriller with an unorthodox structure. The book is divided into three parts but also

Redemption is a much more than a thought-provoking novel!

Redemption novel by Jacklyn A. Lo is a great mix of different genres like sci-fi, history, romance and spiritual.

I liked how Jacklyn has blended the concepts of reincarnation, time travel and technology to make up the whole plot of the novel. The novel was engaging right from the very first page. The language is simple, which makes it easy to read for non-native English-speakers too.
The writer has a bright imagination and strong writing s

This has elements from a mix of genres; including supernatural, spiritual, romance, sci-fi, and speculative fiction. Overall, it is well written and very entertaining. I particularly enjoyed reading this as a series of short-stories, being only disappointed with the lack of connect between the science fiction, the regressive themes, and the end of the book.
The past lives are all exciting reads, though saddled with my common complaint that it is funny how more often than not past life memories ar

***I RECEIVED A COPY OF THIS BOOK FROM THE AUTHOR IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST AND UNBIASED REVIEW***

This is, simply put, a great read. "REDEMPTION" is an apt title for the main plot of this story. Author Jacklyn Lo does a marvelous job of setting up her story and characters. I could picture myself as the main character which made it easy to relate to my own life. There is a fresh perspective about our journey of life and Ms.Lo does great balancing action, adventure, history, mystery, tragedy and r

BEST FICTION STORY !

“Redemption” is a intriguingly, enchanting supernatural sci-fi thriller that keeps the reader on edge as the protagonist “Ann” embarks upon a journey into unknown realms to search for the truth veiled within a troubled past.
The reader is taken on a journey through time starting from Chicago in the year 2045, to the Stone Age, 1st Century A.D in Rome, 17th century France, the Russia of 1941 and then finally heaven, where Ann was destined to be.

The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters

Oh so many wonderful discoveries
the Wisdom Spirit brings to us,
together with the Experience — the child of hard mistakes,
and the Genius — the friend of paradoxes,
and the Chance — the Lord the inventor.
And of course not everything is as bad as it was meant to be…

I must say that I pay close attention, and respect people for who are not limited to material life, but perceive their inner world through art and mystical revelation.

Redemption is a fascinating and epic journey into human history, seen through the eyes of a woman who is suddenly stirred to ask, what is the purpose of life? By the time you reach its surprising conclusion you’ll be asking questions about your motives and values that you never thought to ask before. The historical sequences, which make up the bulk of the book, are particularly compelling, and were my favorite part. That said, Lo paints a fascinating modern world dominated by a very imaginative ...more

EVERYONE DIES…But what if death isn’t the end? What if it is simply a link in a reincarnation chain that spans the centuries and millennia? What if all of us are trapped in an endless cycle of lives, doomed to suffer and die over and over again? Wouldn’t you want to break free?
That’s how the book starts and these are questions you’ll ask yourself after you finish this book.
A thought-provoking plot, especially if you like sci-fi. However, this book is so much more. It take you from the future de

I've read Redemption a while ago and it was a good solid story - then I heard it had been re edited and I decided to give it a try...
Oh my god. Like, seriously. It's slow, sensual, gripping, meaningful and the writing matches the amazing worlds we travel with Ann.
I don't read many time traveling story, let alone serious metaphysical stuff; which is why I can say for a fact: this book will please any reader - there's something for every taste, from romance, to action and historical revisits. Lovi

Redemption is an sci-fi/adventure reading. When I say sci-fi, that doesn't mean full of complicated information that will confuse readers. The language is simple, and that makes the readers continue reading without getting bored. The emotions of the characters are so well that I can feel them personally. The twists and turns are something that I didn't see them coming. Quite an entertain reading! Good adventure story! very imaginative!

This is an enjoyable sci-fi / philosophical novel, taking the reader to the past and future through a series of past live. Starting in a future Chicago the main character questions her existence. Time travel and multiple dimensions are used as plot devices which works well for the story. What is the purpose of life is the overall question, which is answered at the end in a surprising way. An interesting read.

A great book about the possibility that we live multiple lives. An engaging story with an unforgettable lead character, Anne. She has to make sacrifices, leaving behind some superficial wants, for the highest intangible values. The end is very satisfying and will almost leave you thinking "Gee, I wish it were really that way." A must read.
