Reviews - What do customers think about The Redemption: Redemption (LEGACY OF THE KINGS PIRATES)?
Refreshingly Fun Oct 14, 2008
I used to look for any swashbuckling romance I could find and sit down to enjoy it. Lately, I haven't seen many, so I was delighted to come across ML Tyndall's rendition.
How exciting to also come across a born again pirate! As one other reviewer has already written, Mary Lu Tyndall has managed to pull it off, and I think she has done it well.
Tyndall's book was greatly entertaining for me as an historical romance. I was curious as to how she got away with some of her comments throughout the story with Barbour as the publisher! I will say, she has garnered a new fan in me.
I'm not going to take the time to write down what the book was about, as so many others before me have already done that.
I will say, however, if you are a swashbuckling pirate fan, I guarantee you will have an enjoyable time with this book, even as an inspirational.
Kudos to ML Tyndall! I am now off to the second in your series!
Thanks for a good read.
Predictable and trite Jun 26, 2008
Once again I have spent good money on a book with a 5-star rating, only to discover it is mediocre at best. Was this book supposed to be for young adults? I don't see a young adult designation on it anywhere, but it reminds me of something I might have enjoyed in the eighth grade. As an adult, I expect a little more out of my reading material.
Lady Charlisse Bristol goes from one predictably dire peril to another. Abused by an evil (but not very imaginative) uncle, she travels across the sea to find her father, who is also evil, in a standard pirate sort of way. Along the way she survives a shipwreck, falls in love, is captured by pirates (twice), witnesses various ship battles and sword fights, is starved and beaten, and, most important, maintains her virginity until marriage.
The characters are shallow and predictable. The hero is somewhat swashbuckling, but having recently been "saved", he tries not to kill anybody or consort with loose women. He's not very believable. The heroine is feisty -- that annoying kind of feisty where you wish she would just shut up and think about her situation a little before she spouts off with another insult.
The religious images are more disturbing than comforting. Birds and animals as familiars is more of a wicca magick than a Christian tradition. Even more disturbing was the little tricks God plays. Every time Charlisse prays, she gets another little miracle from God. How about a ring of laser lights to keep the rats away? Isn't that special? Nothing restores one's faith like God answering prayers with His special Godly powers.
And I really hated the deathbed redemption. A vicious, murdering, raping, pirate sees Jesus at the last minute and says "I repent" with his last breath, and that's it. All is forgiven. Hooray for Christianity.
Obviously there are people who think this book is wonderful. It is full of messages of faith, and has plenty of action to keep the story moving. But it is not great literature. It's not even a great romance. It's just an insipid little story with a proselytizing undertone. I wish I had known that before I spent my money.
Adventure and Romance Jun 20, 2008
This book is a page turner and difficult to put down once started. The action is nonstop, but not graphic. I'm not a fan of pirates, but this book is written in such a way that if you're seeking a good adventure and you understand faith then you'll still enjoy it. For anyone who knows what it means to struggle as a Christian yet you still press on, this is a book that really illustrates that point. Forgiveness is another great point shown in this book, but it's realistically done. I had never read this author before, now I'd like to read more of her work.
Remption for Pirates Everywhere Apr 21, 2008
I couldn't put this book down. As soon as I finished it, I picked up book 2. I am now in the middle of book 3. This is an absolutely inspiring series of faith. I just can't get enough.
absolutely wonderful Feb 29, 2008
I have just read all 3 of the books in this series and am just breathless at the beauty and intelligence of Mrs. Tyndall writing. These stories are so wonderfully real and one gets so involved into the characters feelings and faith (which, please dont think for you not into "religion" will deter you from the complete enjoyment of these involving stories. I hope there will be another one soon and also....Have they decided to ever film these stories? Wonderful....if I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
