What happens in a bleak, post-apocalyptic world?
Posted by Selena Robins Musings
I have been truly blessed to have some wonderful support for REDEMPTION. Nancy Holzner, one of my most favorite urban fantasy authors, gave me a super prerelease review. I can’t tell you how much that means to an unknown author.
This is what Nancy Holzner wrote:
In a bleak, post-apocalyptic world, what happens when a half-angel searching for her redemption meets a half-demon hellbent on revenge? If it’s J.R. Turner’s world, major sparks fly.
REDEMPTION is a heady mix of action, thrills, and sizzling romance. Half-angel Savannah Mantas is both a kick-ass heroine and a complex character. Immortal yet deeply wounded, she searches for the redemption that will allow her to ascend and leave behind the blasted, dying Earth. But she never expects to find that redemption in the arms of half-demon Nico Montenegro, a man who should be her mortal enemy.
Turner’s urban fantasy is a fast-paced thrill ride that wrestles seriously with questions of good and evil, guilt and innocence, to deliver a satisfying, multilayered read.”
REDEMPTION is special to me. After years of fulfilling contracts for one series after another, I finally decided to write something that would really be unique. The idea for REDEMPTION came while watching a post-apocalyptic movie. I love that genre and for the life of me, I couldn’t understand why I had never written one myself. So I did, and I love how it turned out. I hope you do too!
Redemption is available here:

In her spare time she enjoys arts and crafts, traveling, and movies. Few things in life compare to her passion for the written word, except perhaps the pursuit of chocolate.
