The Immortal’s Redemption - Kelli Ireland

The Immortal’s Redemption

In 1718 Scotland, as he waits in ambush for the fat genocidal Laird of Clan McKay, Dylan knows he lacks a key trait that successful assassins require: patience.  Still he somewhat controls his anxiety to kill the abomination for mass murdering of Druids.  However, before he can complete his task, Danu the Mother of All visits him with a vision of a beautiful woman who along with mankind will need his help three centuries in the future when a Shadow Realm god escapes bondage.

Three hundred years later Danu returns; she informs Dylan the time is now for him to find the woman who will lead him to the truth or his death as he must kill this Kennedy Jefferson to prevent the end of the world.  When she awakens in a hospital, Kennedy has amnesia and fears she suffers from mental illness apparently common in her family.  Only her best friend Ethan keeps her stable.  When Dylan and Kennedy meet, they are attracted to each other, but his mission must come before his heart. 

The Immortal’s Redemption is an entertaining romantic urban fantasy with an intriguing dilemma faced by the lead male.  The support cast and Dylan are fully developed, but Kennedy acts irresponsibly foolish and feels for the most part incomplete as perhaps more insight on her memory loss and sudden moments of recall would have helped readers to understand her better.
