About The Book
A child’s memory.
A journey’s end.
Lance doesn’t remember the time before Ulfr found him. It’s a dark pit in his mind that he avoids at all costs. And yet, despite his best efforts, pieces start to fall, and echoes from the past begin to ring. However, he has little time to comprehend their meaning, since the Captain of the Imperial Army herself has come to collect him and bring him to the capital city of the Nifdem Empire.
Whisked away to the gilded streets and glittering court of the Hill of Tarran, and then to the snowy reaches of Swenen, Lance and Gust will learn the answers to questions they’ve had from the start. And be forced to acknowledge their roles in the survival of the empire and the ripple effects of their actions. But such knowledge can come at a steep price.
As allies and enemies begin to step from the shadows, Lance will learn the truth of his past and the price of his redemption, and all the pain that comes with them. While Gust will have to decide what he’s willing to sacrifice to safeguard the one he loves.
The journey is over for Gust and Lance – a journey of love and redemption. This is a series that must be read in order, and if you have been reading it then you know what happened at the end of book two. Now we pick up exactly where we left off with Gust, Lance and the children they rescued facing Captain Vibiana and the Imperial Army. They are informed that Empress Aurelia has requested them be brought to her, and of course our two heroes are sure they are facing imprisonment or death.
The captain releases Ylva – the new Scourge – from her ropes in spite of what Gust and Lance try to reveal about her, but she is still nobility.
Death and imprisonment are not what the two face. Instead, they get cheers and hugs from the Empress herself, because she sees Lance and Gust as the saviors of the kingdom – the ones who can bring peace between the horde and the empire. She knows of Lance’s search for redemption and his desire to kill only to protect the innocent. His time as Scourge is ended, and all because of a baby’s laugh.
As they journey to Swenen to face the horde, Lance begins to remember the painful past one that he has kept locked inside. Traitors are discovered, and once again it is two children who put Lance on the path to his past and future. With Brutus, Lance’s divine horse, and Gust by his side, Lance knows he must face the horde and bring a long-awaited peace. But he is only one man, so he questions what he will be able to do.
Lord Jorvikr has been working behind the scenes to keep the war goin,g but even if he is removed, there will just be another monster waiting in the wings, and that’s exactly what Lance and Gust must face. Fate and the gods have been directing Lance and Gust, but can they do what no one has been able to before?
I loved this series and the two main characters, whose love for each other and faith in one other is unparalleled. Gust loves the very man who killed his parents, but he knows that it was Scourge and not Lance who did the deed, and it is Lance whom he first met and fell in love with. This book takes us on the journey with Gust and Lance, as Lance fights with who he was in the past and for who he wants to be in the future. Lance’s past took me by surprise – it was filled with pain and death – but it finally allowed him to see who he really is.
A Warrior’s Redemption is a journey to discovery, and both the main characters and the secondary characters were wonderful. I can’t recommend this series highly enough.
