The book starts out with switching to Jordans point of view. The story goes on to explain the different dimensions and how Jonahs and Jordans merged when Jonah stopped Gray and Hodges' plan in the last book. Jordan snatches the Elucidator from JB and he takes everyone except JB to the future. A character named Curtis Rathbone sends Jonah Katherine and Jordan to go save seconds younger-self. In the story, there are three new characters Jordan nicknamed Deep Voice, Tattoo Face, and Doreen. During the rescue attempt, Second escapes with the Elucidator and leaves the Skidmores behind only to be saved by Deep Voice. When he brings them back to Doreen and Tattoo Face, they explain what they know and is on their side. Later in the story, Jordan is alone to try and rescue Second, bring them to a hospital to heal Second, then it is revealed that the time agency knew they were coming and going to arrest Jordan but JB thinks Jordan is Jonah and helps him and Second escapes. In the story Jordan to the time hollow a hologram of Second starts up and tells him what happened to his reality. When the hologram disappears, Kevin (seconds younger self) appears. Jordan freezes him in place and they watch all that has happened in the book series. Kevin says something to the educator and that made them time travel to the future in Mr. Rathbones office, Kevin now de-aged as a baby. He goes back in time to the moment before Jordan got the Elucidator at the beginning of the book and brings everyone to face off against Rathbone. After it all, Rathbone ages to dust and everyone is relieved. The book ends with a party and the Skidmores adopting Kevin, JB gives Jonah, Kathrine, and Jordan Elucidators just in case.

My opinion: This book is definitely five stars! The series explained a good theory of time travel well so I’d give it ten stars if possible! I really loved this series and how exciting it all was, this book really wrapped it all up well. I loved the switch of view, how we saw it through Jordans perspective instead of Jonahs. Second was such a good villain and I think he fit perfectly as the last story. All the characters went through an amazing character growth, I really didn’t realize how much Jonah learned till I read about him through Jordans view. This story didn’t just have time travel, but the mention of different dimensions! I can’t get over how awesome this series is. It made me more interested in history and more positive about the future. It makes me wonder when they say “future” when do they mean? 2035? Just fifteenth years from now. Goodness, this was (for lack of a better word) Amazing! ( )

This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn.

It's over. It's actually over. No more waiting for Missing books, no more begging my parents into driving me to Barnes & Noble on release day, no more bugging my sister/roomie with chants of "Only three more days now! Three more days!" as I count down to a new book. No more adventures with Jonah and Katherine, no more huge identity reveals that I never saw coming. I still have Margaret Peterson Haddix books to look forward to, but no more Missing books. And since I've been reading the Missing series for as long as I've been reading Haddix's books, that is really, really weird to me.

But enough about me, how was the book itself? Well, I'll start with the negatives. And they all boil down to one main factor: Jordan. Not that I have anything against the poor boy (in fact, I had been biting my nails to learn more about him since he showed up at the end of Redeemed!), but he just isn't Jonah. I spent seven books getting attached to Jonah - seven books! That's a lot of pages. Those were a lot of years. The experiences I share with Jonah simply aren't there with Jordan, and so no matter how interested in his story I am I'm still more interested in Jonah's. And sadly, we don't get as much of Jonah as I would have liked. He's there, of course, and there's definitely some tension going on between him and Jordan, but he and Katherine get separated from Jordan about two-thirds of the way into the book and then that's it. No more Jonah and Katherine. Ick.

Also, I would have liked a bit more exploration of the whole twin issue. Jonah and Jordan are practically identical (because nature and nurture were both working to keep them that way), but it did slightly grate on my when people said they were practically "the same person." I mean, Margaret Peterson Haddix of all people should be able to write about genetically identical kids raised in near-identical situations - Jordan isn't just a reboot of Jonah, a "what-if" version that would have happened if Jonah had never discovered time travel. He's a real, unique, individual person. And I couldn't tell if Haddix was ignoring this, or if she simply didn't have time to deal with it when so many things were already going on in the story.

So there's the negative. What about the positive? Again, it mostly boils down to Jordan. You know, Jonah's brother, the one who got time travel (and an identical twin) dropped into his lap. How could Jordan not be awesome?! Jonah-shortage aside, there were a lot of advantages to being inside Jordan's head this time around. He acts like a time-traveling idiot for most of the book, but somehow that never really bothered me. I actually really liked the fact that he was so naive, because it's realistic. If the Jonah from Found had been dropped into Revealed, he would have been just as terrible at time traveling as Jordan is. Speaking of our dear time-traveling pro, I also dearly love the glimpses we get of Jonah throughout Redeemed, as he tries not-very-hard to hide his disgust at having an identical twin brother dropped into his life. That's probably why I got so frustrated about not being inside his head while all of that was going on.

I also loved reading about everything through a newbie's eyes. I learned the ropes of time travel alongside Jonah (actually, inside Jonah!), and I love him to pieces but it's true that my knowledge-base is exactly the same as his. With Jordan, I'm the old hat and he's the clueless newcomer to the table. Being in his head, and watching him try to get a handle on Jonah when I already know him so well, is neat. And through Jordan we get to see how much everyone respects Jonah. Very, very cool! I also love the scene about halfway through, when they go through a re-hash of some of the most dangerous moments in the past seven books. I literally squealed when Jonah said "Richard III" and I realized what was happening! Somehow it was even cooler reliving it through Jordan's eyes, because he spent the whole time freaking out about all the crazy things that happen.

Anyway, this is shaping up to be the longest review I've written in a very long time. I guess I'll stop now, but I could go on and on. I have been waiting for this book for literally five years, and I am so, so thrilled to have finally read it. A few (fairly necessary) disappointments aside, Redeemed was everything I had hoped it would be, and I absolutely loved it.

Though I do wish Jonah would have narrated the epilogue.

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )
