Redemption: A Novel of the Creation of Sumer is the fourth novel in The Alterran Legacy by Regina M Joseph. The Alterran planet was all but destroyed, and living underground was just not possible anymore. Anu’s enemies make his life hell. The only way for the people of Alterran to survive this chaos is by uploading their consciousness to the internet. However, Anu, EnLil, and EnKi are all stuck in the worse way possible. They need to make sure the Earthlings and Alterrans all survive, but with the hurdles in their way and the unforeseen challenges, the father and sons have to work harder and smarter than before to thwart Azazel and achieve their goals before everything is lost forever.
Although it is marketed as an epic fantasy, I will also recommend this novel to space opera fans. The concept is digitalizing the afterlife, of uploading consciousness on the internet, and the idea of how some of the most intelligent and advanced civilizations of Earth became the standard of advancement. The narrative is fast-paced and interesting. Author Regina M Joseph plays with emotions, the highs and lows of life, and the hope of finding a better future. She merges mystery with science fiction and fantasy to bring a nice potpourri of action and drama to keep readers wanting more. The characters are well-thought-out, developed, and given plenty of room to grow. The energy of the story is positive, even if the characters face trials that may seem beyond them at times. Anu, Enlil, and Enki have a very strange yet relatable relationship. They are equally smart, sharp and they butt heads, but not enough for them to hate each other. Instead of giving readers overwhelming technologies and concepts, the author keeps things simple and relatable. Loved it!
