Title: Redemption
Series: Soul, #1
Author: C.J. Barry
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Reya Sinclair is a Redeemer of Souls. Her mission is to give Earth’s most depraved sinners a shot at redemption just before they are slated to die. Her own redemption is on the line as she fulfills her duties, leaving a trail of dead bodies in her wake. It’s all going perfectly well until one detective takes notice, possibly bringing her salvation to a halt. 

 Thane Driscoll is a good cop who’s seen too many bad guys get away, including the man who murdered his father. He exacts his own style of justice, even if it costs him his humanity. A string of mysterious deaths leads him to a woman who’s not quite human and might hold the key to finding his father’s killer. 

 When death and shadows descend, New York City becomes a battleground for the forces of light and dark. As the body count rises and sparks fly between them, Reya and Thane race to uncover a terrible truth. Can one man hell-bent on revenge and one woman determined to save her eternal soul be enough to keep the planet from spiraling into darkness?

Received book from Netgalley for review. 

 Redemption begins when Thane a local cop starts noticing "freak accidents" happen to several different people. All of whom weren't exactly what you would call the good guys. He normally wouldn't think anything of this except the same woman has been around several of these men all right before they died. Now Thane is determined to find her to figure out what is going. 

 Reya is what you call a "redeemer" she's out to see if these bad guys will be sorry for their sins. So far not very many people are interesting in being sorry. She knows that Thane is after her now, but that isn't the problem. The problem is the fact that people are now dying by the darkness. Which shouldn't even be possible, but some how it is. These two must work together in order to figure out what is going on, and save the world... All in a days work for both of them.. 

 Redemption was okay. It's not bad, but not great either. I liked both of the characters a lot. I thought Thane was pretty awesome. He's the typical bad boy teetering on the edge of good and bad. And he has a major attraction to Reya. And Reya on the other hand is an awesome alpha female. She totally goes out to kick but and take names. I really admired her in this book. And the story was very unique and interesting. However, the main thing that bothered me was I just couldn't actually feel anything between the characters.. Or really anything at all for the book. But I did like it, and I think the best part was the ending even though it was a little sad at first. I really liked how it turned out.
