It isn't often I get a chance to say "What a great story!", but that's just what I think about Beyond Redemption.
It took me about twenty pages to really get into it, but once the book had my attention it kept it right to the end. About the only negative thing I can say is the first few pages are too colourful, but once the author finds his pace the story grips you taking you on an adventure complete with cliff-hangers and intense anticipation as you move from one chapter to the next.
The worlds, or maybe alternate universes is more apt, that he paints with his words create a vivid background for his characters, some of which are truly memorable. I'm sure both the characters and the worlds they live in will linger in my imagination for a long time to come.
I'm really looking forward to reading the other books in the series as well. I've grown attached to some of the characters and would love to spend a bit more time with them.
Let's hope this is only the beginning of a very long career for Jax Alexander! :-)
