Divine Redemption was a short, hot read. If seen from a perspective of simple entertainment, it definitely hit the spot. The premise was interesting and the characters appealing.
However, perhaps it was a short story, I found that Strong did a lot more telling rather than showing, which made for some choppy reading. It seemed like this was a story idea that would have benefited immensely from being expanded upon. The backstory was very interesting and I thought it was a pity that it was glossed over, mostly in inner monologue form by Thanos. If there had been some expansion, more of the showing of the story, this would have been a better read.
For that matter, I felt like the emotions of the characters were being "told" to me rather than being shown. The lust, the desire, the love -- it all seemed very superficial because everything was happening so fast and the plot lines were in competition with character development for page space.
I have to admit that this isn't up to Jory Strong's usual standards. Still a good read, but not nearly as good as her longer works. Good for a quickie, but for a better sample of this author, I'd suggest picking up one of her longer works. Especially the ghostland series, which is exquisitely crafted.
