Gabriel's Redemption Blog Tour+Giveaway!

Gabriel's Redemption (Gabriel's Inferno, #3)Author: Sylvia Reynard
Publisher: Penguin Berkley
Number of Pages: 496

"Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father.
But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront her about the subject of her presentation – research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets.
In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family."

I was really excited when I learned there was going to be a third book in the Gabriel's Inferno series. I absolutely fell in love with Julia and Gabriel's story in the first two book and the third book just brought it all together. I got really excited when I found out that Sylvain Reynard decided to write Gabriel's Redemption because of all the fans wanted it. See? Harassment can make a difference! Wait...did I say harassment?

Julia and Gabriel's life together develops even more in the book. You get to see them together as a couple and learn so many new things about them and how they function together. I felt that this book really focused on how they reacted towards each other at home, without as much as the traveling and as a serious married couple this time. It really brought a lot of things into perspective for me. The chemistry that these two characters have together is obvious. No one can say that they don't belong together especially after all the history that they have had together.  

The plot of this story was amazing and it didn't seem like a forced decision that the author made to write this book. It really seemed as if she had always planned to write a third book and that she already had planned the whole story in her head. I loved the flow in this book. The only problem I had with the plot was the ending. I still felt like it just hung a little and it was just with supporting characters too. Their stories were just left as cliffhangers and I'm a bit peeved about it but I still adore this book.

If you haven't read this series then I really don't know what you are doing and I would definitely say to go read it. This is also a book I would HIGHLY recommend it. The only minor thing I have to say is this book contains situations that might not be appropriate if you are under the age of 17 and you still might be uncomfortable at that age. So I recommend this book to people 17+.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!!

Author Bio
I'm interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition - particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.

I'm also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.

I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex's Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House. For more information, see my Twitter account.
