Lead Council member, Christoph, is dead by Elyse’s hand, and Descendants have begun to emerge, exposing their secret to the world. Some see this as the prophecy come to fruition, but the prophecy caries a heavy consequence. It was never meant to be as peaceful as most had hoped.
Humans and Descendants struggle to live together in a world that isn’t ready for such a change. America is divided. Those who glorify the supernatural race believe Descendants truly are the gods they claim relation to. Others see them as a threat.
When Elyse gives birth to the next generation oracle, she sees one final vision—war. The destruction of the country’s major cities, and the end of America as we know it.
After her daughter is born, Elyse finds herself without the ability she needs to predict the future. Desperate to save the world from such conflict, she puts her faith in the hope that Descendants are the key to survival. After all, they have the power to supply a broken society with the means to survive.
Only from the ashes can a new world be born.
Book 3 in the Children of the Gods series
Redemption by Jessica Therrien
The third, and final?, book in the Children of the Gods series, Redemption by Jessica Therrien is absolutely amazing! Best book of the series by far. Christoph is dead and Elyse thinks the prophecy fulfilled. Little does she know a new council rises and has its own plans for human/descendants integration.
The plot of book 3 is fantastic. It’s fast paced and heart wrenching and you keep hoping things aren’t as they seem but they are. There will always be casualties in war and things are no different here. Things happened in this book that I did not expect, that took my breath away and left me wondering what would happen next. I’ll talk about that in the spoiler vlog. This series has been amazing, more than I thought it would be. The characters are complex, well rounded, and grounded. The world is sound and makes sense. The plot and actual story kicks butt, giving you surprises but never feeling that they were undeserved or coming out of nowhere.
If you’ve read the first two, you are in for a damn treat with the third. If you haven’t read the series, why are you reading this review???? THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE FOR THE PREVIOUS BOOKS OBVIOUSLY! But still, go pick up the first book and you’ll love this YA series, especially Redemption by Jessica Therrien, the finale of Children of the Gods.
