As demons destroy the city of Gastar, one brave girl stands tall in the face of Hell. Kidsworld reviews Act of Redemption, a terrific debut novel by C.C. Cole.

Author: C.C. Cole

Over the past 200 years, the people of Gastar have lived in fear. Their once-great city, protected by a stone wall, has fallen to near ruin. The population has dwindled and hardly any women or children walk the streets. Three brave men born two centuries ago arrive in the future prepared to lend a hand where needed.


Extermination

Every month, demons from hell swarm the city of Gastar, stealing every woman they lay eyes on. Zermon, the ruler of Hell, wants the women for two reasons: to exterminate the human population in Gastar, and to use them to spawn more demons. The three brave men will do whatever they can to save the innocent humans.


A Fearless Heroine

Meanwhile, one fearless girl named Shevata has arrived in Gastar after spending years upon years trapped in Hell. Her experience in the underworld has given her a ruthless edge, a fearless outlook and impeccable survival skills. Shevata’s abilities to control objects with her mind and drain beings of their life with a single touch has made her feared among the fiercest of demons.


Robin Hood at Heart

Shevata claims to be soulless; she can kill an army without remorse. But every battle she fights has a genuine purpose—to save the weak and conquer the strong; to protect the innocent and eliminate the guilty; to preserve the good in human beings and destroy the evil escaping from the mouth of Hell.


The Bottom Line

C.C. Cole’s debut novel Act of Redemption is the first of four books in the Gastar series. It’s a short but powerful read, filled with courageous characters and intense battle scenes. Act of Redemption is perfect for teens who love a good sci-fi or horror novel.
