I was so glad when the authors approached me asking me too review this book. I can honestly say that it was 10X better than the first one!
There's a lot more action and it's very much fast paced.
The love triangle between Kai, Tristan and Emma still exists and becomes a lt more tense, deep and well intersting.
You find out a lot more about the night marchers in this follow-up, which keeps the story going.
I absolutely love Kaylee! She's such a loyal friend, she loves Emma more than anything and is

EEEEEEEEEEEEK! This book was sooooooooooooo amazing! Okay, emma, calm down. whew. This book starts off with Kai still a Night Marcher (from here on out refered to as NM) *sigh* and Emma being sent back to Texas to live with her best friend. Well, as soon as best friend's mom leaves, they run back to Hawaii in hopes of rescuing Kai. They rope Tristan into helping, who is still in love with Emma, but she is unsure of how she feels for him. Anyhow, Kao shows up wanting to 'help' save his brother, c ...more

So I got to read this before it comes out! I was highly impressed, as I loved the first one this one was better! It had a great ending, eventhough there were things that I wanted to see differently. But you can't have every book end exactly as you want. So I will say, it was definitely worth the read. This book had much improvement from the first. The writing flowed very nicely and had some surprising twists thrown in there! I felt alot of different emotions...sad, happy, frustration, angry, ecs ...more

Firstly I would like to thank the authors for asking me to review this book before it was officially released. It’s an honour and privilege. Oh yeah, and I love this cover as much as I did the first.

Now for the really important part....

As anyone who follows me or my shared review page will know, I absolutely loved Night Marchers and quickly became a fan of these two very talented authors. It opened my eyes to a new world (which is no easy task) and for me, the story was unique. So did ‘Redempti

Disclaimer: I was given an e-copy by the authors in exchange for an honest review.

SOOOOO happy with this sequel!! I picked it up as soon as I finished "Night Marchers," and I read it all within 12 hours (had to break for work lol). I can honestly say I laughed, I cried, I cheered, and I even fist-pumped at certain points. =)

The characters are so much fun, and their story is so crazy you just can't tear yourself away from it. I just HAD to keep going, to know how everything would work out. And th

Amazing, breathtaking and a roll-coaster ride, are just some of the few words I have for this one! This was a for sure amazing second book to the series! I loved the first one but I think this one was even better. The journey Emma has to embark on to save the man in her life that she thinks she might love, but yet who gave his life for her. I love the journey Tristan, Kylee and Emma take to unravel all that has happened since Kai has been taken and find a way to bring him back. You will fall in ...more

Firstly I'd just like to say a Mahusive congrats to the girl's Rebecca and Courtney on the sequel to Night Marchers. It took me literally 9 hours altogether to read Redemption. I "needed" another fix as soon as I was done with Night Marcher's #1 so I was uber excited when the girl's posted on their page asking for potential reviewers for the book. I jumped at the chance and I am soooo glad I did.

We start where we left off, with Emma being driven at breakneck speed down the road by her worried father, who promptly drops her off at the airport and sends her to Kaylee, Emma's best friend. Naturally Emma concocts a plan to secretly come back almost immediately after arriving and camps out in the jungle with Kaylee and Tristan.

This book needed a good editor, as the spelling was... not great. Waist becoming waste to 'night and shining armor'. The story is a bit shorter

This book was as good as the first one. I could not put it down! I was amazed at the end of what Emma's decision was. This book was full of action right from the get go.

The way the authors incorporated the love triangle was wonderful, some authors can not write it in a book quite right, but these 2 did a wonderful job. Redemption was a great sequel to the first book Night Marchers.

Kaylee in the story reminded me a lot like my best friend. Always there for you know matter what. And I actually l

First of all I want to thank the authors for providing me with a free copy of "Redemption" and for writing these two wonderful books. After reading "Night Marchers" and falling in love with the book I knew I had to read "Redemption." I loved it from beginning to end. "Redemption" takes you on another roller coaster ride and leaves you wanting more. It will seem like an eternity to have to wait for the next book. I recommend "Night Marchers" and "Redemption" and if you are as sensitive as Emma (m ...more

Wow in this second book alot happens. She is forced to go back to Texas by her dad for her safety. Her amazing BFI helps her jet back to Hawaii unknown to try to find a way to save one of the Hotties that loves her. Lots of love and action is wrapped up in both of these books. Truely it would be a bad thing for you to miss out on this unigue paranormal romance. I loved every moment of both books and so.... can not wait for the third one :)

Alright, I want my time back. I only read this because I felt the first book was unfinished. So much more filler in this one even. HOW?! And the recap was way too much. Honestly this should have just been combined in one book. The beginning is all random rushing around and isn't put together well. The island feel was lost, and not just because a chunk of this was pointlessly spent flying to Texas and back. I don't get Emma's behavior. Her behavior toward Kao least of all. I liked seeing more of ...more

This was an absurd read. I was giving this book a try because it got a high overall rating on Goodreads. However, I found this book even more boring than the first book. I thought that the characters were boring. I did not have a connection to anyone. Also, that ending was bad. I thought it was rushed. I am sorry to say that this book was not a great read for me. Overall, a meh read.

I received a copy of this book from the authors for a honest review. Emma is back after being sent back home to live. She and her best friend sneak back to Hawaii. Tristan is in on helping them sneak around. The reason she is back is simple. She wants to save Kai the man she loves from the Night Marchers just as he once saved her. She finds help in an unusual person Kao. Kai's brother and the reason Kai now needs help. She doesn't fully trust him because he seems to have a different plan in min ...more

Redemption is the 2nd book in the Night Marchers series and is a YA book that takes the beautiful island of Hawaii and explores some of the darker paranormal history about it.

As with the first book the story continues to be told through the eyes of the teenage Emma and her struggles with dealing with the paranormal as well as trying to balance all the normal things a teenager has to deal with.

I felt this book took a much more serious turn than the first, which considering how the first one ended

Very creative story line, kinda predictable, but loved it! Read it in 2 days.
I personally loved the first book. And I really enjoyed that the plot continued in this book and was really excited to read it since the summer. However in this book I find that all of the emotion shown of Emma Townsend got really annoying. She, contrary to the first book, came off to me as stupid and really emotional the entire time. In the first book though she seemed more of a strong woman, although she did lose herself every now and then. Which did make the book believable after what she was ...more
I was given a Ebook copy from Rebecca Gober for leaving an honest review on Night Marchers.

First of all I want to thank Rebecca Gober for giving me a free copy of Redemption for giving my honest opinion/review of Night Marchers.

I read the book a few months ago but just couldnt bring myself to do a review.I dont like giving bad reviews when I know the authors have worked hard to tell their story..

So I really wanted to like if not love this book as much as the first.But it just didnt do it for me.

I was given this book from the generous authors so I could review it. (Thanks so much Rebecca and Courtney! I am so grateful!) Well, let's go on to my review. :)
Redemption was even more captivating than its predecessor was, and that's saying a lot. Emma, our dear heroine, has to find a way to bring back Kai, who gave up everything for her. She is lost in the enormity of "love", and is insecure in her emotions. Emma has similar feelings(or at least think she does for the first part of the book) f

Redemption started right where Night Marchers left off. I was hooked pretty quickly into the story since I really liked Emma from book 1. I think the writing matured and flowed much better this time. I really enjoyed this entertaining read.

This was definitely a love triangle that could break your heart with built-love and insta-love. In stories with love triangles I think the guy the girl isn't leaning toward is the under-dog. I'll root for the under-dog to get a

Redemption had me from the very first page. I love the Night Marchers but this was even better. I Was happy we got to see more of Kylee and Tristan in this one and love the journey they go on with Emma to find a way to bring back Kai. Kylee is a true friend right there at Emma side no matter what Emma said and with Tristan he wants to protect her even if he don't want her putting herself in danger so he is in on the ride no matter what.

This book really rated 2.5 because of the character development but book one (grading as a series ) helped it to a 3 star.

After completing the second book in this series I can honestly say that while the story line was interesting the main character, Emma, really irritated me. Always seeming confused, guilty but most of all weak, she really pushed me over the edge in this book. I pushed though though because u wanted I know how it would end. I just can't understand why the girls

This book picked up right where Book 1 (Night Marchers) left off and didn't miss a beat. I was pulled in from the first sentence and found myself unable to put in down. The story that evolved was one I absolutely loved, and the writing was incredible. The characters are so wonderfully written that you can't help but fall in love with them.

I definitely recommend this YA series as a must read, you won't be disappointed. :)

I don't want to let a spoiler slip, but if you enjoyed Night Marchers you'll definitely like Redemption. You'll probably even like it better. Who knew Hawaii was such a dark and mysterious place?!

“Emma, if I had to march an eternity in slavery it would be worth it knowing that you are safe. They can bind my wrists and shackle my feet, but they can't take away my memories, my heart. If I had to see you grow old from a distance with someone else, it would have been worth it. I have had more than one lifetime to learn that our love can only come around once.” 7 likes
