EDINBURG, Texas (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
Some of the most successful science fiction movies and novels involve stories of characters trying to set things right in a world where things have gone wrong. Time travelers travel to the past to protect the future in “Terminator”. In “I Am Legend” a scientist isolates himself in a city overrun by vampires to continue researching a cure for the pandemic destroying humanity. With his new novel, “Redemption: Book 2 of the God Stone Trilogy” (published by AuthorHouse), Joaquin Lopez makes his mark in the genre of science fiction salvation stories.
“Redemption” is the story of a young man, Jack, who must prove his faith to the Gods, prove his love to his soul mate and prove his loyalties to his supporters. Jack, who is forced to grow up far from home and family, becomes a warrior and a hero, selected by the Gods as the Chosen One of ancient prophesy.
“The story is a love story, faith story, action story, and a feel good story all wrapped up in one,” explains Lopez.
It is often said that good writers are also good readers. “Redemption” is a science fiction novel born out of Lopez’s love of reading science fiction. “I enjoy reading this genre and after reading so much of it I decided to try writing it.”
Lopez delivers a powerful, inspirational message with “Redemption.” “It gives readers hope that you can accomplish a thing if you make it your goal and never give up,” he says. “Anything is possible as long as you never give up.”
