I was really excited about reading this book because, after werewolves, gargoyles are my muber one thing! There are just so few books out their about gargoyles so I consider it a treat when I come across one. Unfortunately, I haven't come across one that completely hits the spot, so to speak. Though I enjoyed Redemption, I thought the characters could have been more ...endearing and the story was a little too slow for my tastes. It starts off more slow than intriguing and stays that way for a lot of the story. I enjoyed the action in parts and the last third of the book was packed with a pucnch. I think if the entire story had been infused with that same excitment and intrigue, I would have enjoyed it overall instead of in parts. As for the characters, though I wasn't particularly smitten by any of them, I thought they were interesting enough to keep me invested and realistically flawed. It took me a while to realy click with them, but once I did, I really wanted to see how things would work out for them. I liked the switching viewpoints because it allowed me to get to know more about each character and what made them tick. Overall, Redemption is a simple read that has heart and a lot of potential. There was a quality to the story that made me want to keep reading despite the lull in certain parts. It's not fast paced, but I think if you like gargoyles and a bit of mystery, you'll like this well enough.
