A brilliantly wrought tale of redemption that reveals, above all else, the power of stories

Ernest Lopez marks his debut in the world of literature with “I Was Lost But Now I'm Found.” Steeped in the riveting myth of La Louchiana, the Archangel, this dark fantasy novel boasts of a cast of indelibly characterized men and women and rich prose that will keep readers captivated from beginning to end.

Louchiana, according to ancient legends, is said to be Lord’s favorites and the most beautiful of all angels. Her wings were much larger than the other heavenly host and she could fly higher above the rest. She fell from grace when she let vanity and vengeance corrupt her. As punishment for her transgressions, the Lord stripped her of her magnificent wings, her mighty sword and her great beauty and then sent her to the earth with an extraordinary task. “I Was Lost But Now I'm Found” follows what happened to the angel and the people that crossed paths with her.

Lopez, the evocative and thoroughly engaging narrator, takes readers on a journey across continents and eras, from the bustling city of Los Angeles in the 1950s to the breathtaking mountains of Italy in the modern day and finally to the novel’s stunning conclusion.

Heralding the arrival of a promising new voice, “I Was Lost But Now I'm Found” is a brilliantly wrought tale of redemption that reveals, above all else, the power of stories.
