It's said that your life flashes before your eyes when you die.
It must only happen to those whose lives were worthy.
Clearly, mine was not.
The only thing that happened to me was a repeat of what I thought was my death.
The blast of the gun as it went off.
The loss of my breath as two hundred pounds of dead weight dropped on top of me.
And then darkness.
This replayed over and over.
When the guy squatted down next to me and asked if I was hurt, the only thing I could see, feel,
hear, were those few seconds.
Even now, as I sat in the back of a blacked out van—it was the only thing that ran through my mind.
Gunshot, breath, darkness.

My Redemptive Review . . .
In Combative we are left with a WTF cliffhanger, so when I started to read Redemptive I was expecting a totally different book. I love the way that this trilogy is set up because even after book 2 I still do not have a hot clue what is going on. Which I think is brilliant, yet frustrating. Only frustrating because I have little patience and now I have to wait to get the answers that we are dying to know after reading these two books.
Per·spec·tive: a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.
This trilogy gives a whole new meaning to perspective. In Combative we were seeing one point of view and were growing an opinion on certain matters. In Redemptive, we get a totally different perspective totally skewering our first opinion. Now we having opposing perspectives and know nothing at the same time.
In Redemptive we get to Bailey's back story and how Nate plays a part in her past. Their story is tragic and intriguing, and I'm dying to know how it all plays in with Kyler's story. Sure we get bits and pieces but we don't have the big picture yet.
In Combative, Nate's perceived as the bad guy, but in Redemptive we get to see who Nate really is and why he does what he does.
"I protect you because you're my boss, Nate. I kill for you because you're my family."
I don't know if I have ever finished 2 out of 3 books in a trilogy and not know what's going on. Usually the plot is predictable and tiresome that you are waiting for the story to be finished. But not with this series. You are hooked from beginning to end and are hanging by a thread just waiting to find out how the whole story ties together. Great concept. Great story so far. Can't wait for more.
4 I still have no clue thumbs up!
