The Redeemer is the second book in The Temple of Empia Saga by M.C. Glan and it is a great treat for fans of fantasy. Before the birth of Cassandra’s child, gifted people had disturbing nightmares of a son. And Jim Bluefeather had similar visions. But what is this child who steals into their dreams and into the deep recesses of their souls? Ryan Reyn is normal and ordinary, working as a doctor’s assistant. He has special gifts, but he doesn’t know just how much power he can wield until he discovers a dark secret. Now, he leaves Daigos and travels to Empia to uncover the truth. He is about to confront his real nature, a field where two powerful forces rival each other—darkness and light. The fate of his world depends on him and it is about what he ultimately allows to dominate his nature. Will he choose light or will he allow the seduction of his dark nature to direct his destiny?

While M.C. Glan tells the story of a powerful protagonist, the author explores realities that trouble the human mind. The story explores the primordial conflict between light and darkness, and how deceptive darkness can be. The protagonist is a powerful character thrust into a world that is filled with supernatural creatures, guardians, vampires, spirits, and a mysterious temple that embodies the realities of light and darkness. The story is deftly plotted and suspenseful and the characters are sophisticated. Ryan Reyn is an unusual protagonist whose struggle with spiritual conflict reflects the challenges of the human spirit when faced with choosing light against darkness. The Redeemer is an engaging novel with surprising and emotionally strong moments.
