Review: Rhyn's Redemption by Lizzy Ford

Rhyn's Redemption (Rhyn Trilogy #3) by Lizzy Ford
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Katie and Rhyn are in a race against time to free Katie from the underworld, before Death claims her soul and that of her child. When Katie’s guide in the underworld disappears, she has one option: trust the ghost of someone long-dead and seek out Death's fortress in order to try to escape through the portal leading back to the mortal world.

Rhyn discovers Katie's alive but struggles to control his demon powers, which were unleashed when he un-bonded her. He opens the barrier that keeps Death safe from the Dark One. Demons and his immortal brothers follow him as he seeks out Death to make a deal for Katie’s life. When Death reveals to Rhyn what will happen if Katie’s soul is returned, he must choose between destruction of the world or his own mate.
My Thoughts: It's been a while since I read the first two books in this series and I had forgotten how layered this world is. Demons, Immortals, bad things, badder things, covenants with Death... there was A LOT of intrigue and danger going on. It was kinda awesome.

The hardest thing to read about in this book is how terribly Rhyn has been treated by his family. He's reviled for something he did to protect them and yet, instead of turning against them (which he had every right to do), the core of decency that's buried inside him makes him keep sticking his neck out to save them. His family's actions are beyond anything he should have had to endure. What Kris did to Katie alone would have been grounds for him destroying them. Yet, he didn't.

Tortured heroes who manage to retain a sense of what's right and wrong do it for me, you know. I LIKE THEM. A lot.

Awesome set up for the next series. Great ending to Rhyn and Katie's story. There was just a whole lot of fun going on between these pages. Bloody, dangerous fun, but still fun.
