Someday I’ll be Redeemed is the first book of Kelly Blanchard’s Chronicles of Lorrek series, and it is a book that lives up to every bit of its hype. The book was recommended to me by a friend and she was so insistent about how good it was that I bought both the Kindle edition and the paperback.
The book is masterfully crafted and creates in the reader the desire to know more about what happens next. The world is vast and the characters many and each are interesting in their own way. Some are likeable, some are detestable, but each will leave an imprint in your mind. The titular character Lorrek caught my imagination as no one else except perhaps Vixen, the former assassin. Though all the other characters are interesting, I found these two the most memorable. The world that Kelly creates is vast and complex where technology co-exists with magic and the different Kingdoms each with their own problems and dynamics are brought out well. Magic is the key in this world, but technology has its own place.
I’m not going into the plot in deep because I don’t want to spoil anything, but there are a few things that are given away in the blurb itself. The book opens with Prince Lorrek whom everyone had believed dead appearing back and the rest of the book is a mix of his journey to right the wrongs of the past and his memories and it all ends in a cliffhanger that has the reader salivating for more. The narrative is from various points of view, but as a fan of this form of writing, I enjoyed it a lot. Each voice is distinctive and interesting.
Pick up this book. You will be entertained and intrigued.
