Isla's Redemption takes the reader on a fantastic journey with a young lady searching for the meaning of her dreams. Romance finds its way into this quest. With this comes struggle. Readers will find themselves gripping the edges of the book as this tale gains in its level of intensity. I found it to be a great story, pulling me in as each event unfolded. Truly, the Gods need mortals as much as the mortals need the Gods.

Not the best book I've ever read. But far from being just good. It will entrap the hearts of teenage girls, and young women. There is just enough action to keep the avid male readers intrigued as well. It was overall a fantastic story. Still, there were those mistakes that were easily spotted. I wouldn't knock down this story because of them though. Give the book a chance. Most first novels have these very same mistakes in them and yet they are still great stories. Without a doubt, Isla's Redemption is a must read.

    Not Perfect, but a great start. Ms. Pitre shines in her debut.

    Terra Ann Pitre's first novel is an excellent read, but not free from pitfalls that first time novelist's tend to ensnare themselves in. While the grammar and punctuation leave much to be desired, it is the heart of the story which really matters. Ms. Pitre is able to tell a powerful story through characters which jump to life off of the page and creating a sense of wonder in the reader. Weaving in and out of beautiful locations and epic set pieces, you will be taken on a journey which will leave you breathless in the end. An excellent start to what is sure to be a long career.

    I Also Recommend:

    Engaging characters

    Though peppered with spelling and grammar errors, Isla's Redemption redeems itself with engaging characters, captivating romance, and edge of the seat action. For her first novel, Ms. Pitre has done very well for herself. I predict she will soon gain a large fanbase. As I see by previous reviews, she's already gotten a good start on that. I'm very glad she's continuing writing and I look forward to reading her next work and watching her grow as a writer. Isla's Redemption starts off what is sure to be a long and promising writing career for Terra Ann Pitre. Not bad, not bad at all for her first novel.
