Precious Gift . . . Cursed Power

Emelynn Taylor barely survived a brutal attack by a murderous psychopath. In the aftermath, she seeks peace and a new beginning. But a terrorist has other plans and rips her world apart. When the escalating violence spreads to the inner circle of her covert community, Emelynn uncovers a tyrannous conspiracy that threatens to expose the gift and all those who share it.

With no way out, Emelynn must face her worst fears. She forms an alliance with a man she doesn’t trust and a family she doesn’t know to save those she loves . . . and she must do it alone.

Genre(s): Paranormal and Urban Fantasy, Suspense
Series: The Gift Legacy, #3
Length: 326 pages
Release date: 2016-01-13



Mason’s persistence that I stay at Cairabrae reminded me of James’s warning. Right now, however, I needed Mason. I was only staying three days and I’d assured James that I would leave at the first sign of duplicity. That didn’t do much to appease James, but I was living my life, not his.

My Opinion

This book reunites the readers with Emelynn Taylor – still recovering from her abduction by a dangerous psychopath. Her life should be back to normal – yet she is again in the line of fire.

With The Gift: Redemption, J. P. McLean has once again created a thrilling combination of mystery, paranormal, urban fantasy and a touch of romance. It is a compelling read centred on Emelynn, drawing you in as you learn more about James and Mason and their respective motives. J. P. McLean paints a clear picture of the main characters’ mindsets while the story evolves. I was drawn close to Em and her story – again an invisible friend and ally. The characters are of sufficient depth, believable with their flaws and virtues. The story is a very nicely woven combination of several genres, has a wonderful flow; it was easy to get hooked.

This is a book for you if you like mysteries or paranormal romance with a very urban touch and believable characters, some strewn in steamy situations, and some violent events.

The stunning third book in The Gift Legacy series!

Highly recommended!
