Declan de Douglas is given a second chance at life when he is made into what his half brother, Lachlan is-a human with matrix infused inside him. Even though he has family and friends, he feels he needs to regain their trust and forgiveness for it was his help that almost destroyed his brother, his new wife and their clan. Now on a mission to Planet Forest to negotiate trade alliances, he finds himself not able to deal with the peril that haunts Braemer Keep. He wakes to find himself collared and a slave. Princess Fallon didn’t want to be an ornament for any man but doesn’t know what to do about it until Declan walks into her life and touches her heart. Can Fallon find a way to save Declan from the life of a slave and accept who he is now?

is a wonderful story full of action, adventure, romance and mystery all tied up with a big red bow by author R. Garland Gray. This is an author who continues to amaze me with her masterful storytelling. Each book by Ms. Gray continues to be better and better. I can honestly say this is my favorite Futuristic series to date and the story is rich with historical information as well as wonderful characters to enjoy. If you enjoy a high speed story set in space, then get ready for DARKSCAPE: REDEMPTION.

Meet Declan de Douglas, a man who was given a second chance at the end of Rebel Lord, and is infused with the matrix like his brother, Lachlan. Determined to win their trust and forgiveness, he goes to Planet Forest to try to broker a trade alliance with Clan MacKendrick, only to find himself collared and having no memory of his life before. Enter in Princess Fallon, a woman who grew up in lap of luxury yet finds her life is empty of something that even she has no idea of what….that is until she meets and falls for Declan. Chaos arrives as both find themselves stuck in peril as clans erupt and a third party watches as his evil plans become known. Can Fallen help Declan regain his memory and accept the man he is now? These two are very relatable characters and kept me glued to the computer screen till the very end. With some great secondary characters to keep the story flowing smoothly, Ms. Gray delves into Declan’s story with gusto and I loved how she redeemed the man we all met in Rebel Lord, book 1 of the Darkscape series.

Tight writing, fast paced storyline and lots of twists will keep you on the edge of your seat as you read the next installment of the Darkscape series, REDEMPTION. Ms. Gray is a wonderful storyteller who captivates her readers from the first page to the last. If you enjoy a high energy story, then I highly suggest you grab REDEMPTION and the first book, Rebel Lord. I do recommend reading Rebel Lord first to understand Declan’s back story and the events that played there. The Darkscape series is one you can read a multitude of times and still be blown away by it all. I just hope we won’t have to wait long for the next adventure in the Darkscape world.
