“I have become pure evil.” Roman’s Redemption is book two in the Roman Series by Best Selling Author Kimber S. Dawn. Darkness incarnate, Kimber takes you on a mind trip that will have you guessing, crying, cringing and smiling. My relationship with Roman is a lot like what I imagine Stockholm syndrome might feel like. Roman captured me in book 1, and hasn’t let me go since. He feeds me, bathes and cares for me, but he tortures me, shreds me to pieces and then puts me back together.
Heather’s traumatic transition to Mac/Mace is so vivid, it leaves you stunned, and yet somehow relieved that she’s found some way to cope.
The imagery, the sweetness, the terrifying details all come together in a masterpiece of darkness that will leave readers reeling long after the last page is finished. Redemption finally answers some of the questions left in Roman, but if you’re anything like, the percent remaining on your Kindle had you power reading in hopes that it wasn’t going to end.
When I finished Redemption, my first thought was- How would this play out on the big screen? Of course, I had to ask Kimber what she thought. So, before you start reading, cue up Buckcherry’s Crazy Bit*h. This is your opening soundtrack.
Heather, and her twisted alter ego Mac/Mace is played by the stunning Sienna Miller.
Close your eyes and picture the scariest movie you’ve ever seen. Combine that with the image of the hottest movie you’ve ever seen, and then imagine Kimber, sitting in the director’s chair, a “what the hell are you planning now” smile on her face. You still wouldn’t come close to what these books would actually look like on the big screen. And the ending credits??? Have a listen to Kimber’s choice now:
“Ivy’s book is next,” Kimber assured me, “it will pick up when she is 15 or 16.” When asked what else she had up her sleeve, I got one of those smiles and three very intriguing words- “My funny book.”
