Redemption Song

Stephan Michael Loy

When Sally Reiser joined the mysterious network, she did so to protect her handicapped child. But the network that kept them safe has been infiltrated, its communications disrupted, trust compromised, and people replaced with invisible agents. The organization has taken up a sinister new purpose, to murder Sally, the seer of God, and also her eight-year-old autistic son. How far and fast will this mother run to escape a fate fueled by fanaticism and decreed a thousand years before she was born? With her academic boyfriend Gary LaMonte, Sally flees across Europe, uncertain how to set right her life or keep her son from the grasp of killers. To steer through her trials, she must forge new alliances, repudiate old convictions, and trust in powers beyond Man's comprehension.

In this sequel to Last Days and Times, Stephan Michael Loy paints an intense picture of power gone mad. A fantasy thriller traversing the world from Lake Michigan to the deserts of Israel, Redemption Song is a fast-paced, gripping tale of soldiers and terrorists, philosophers and sociopaths, of angels and monsters. Sally Reiser is blessed -- or cursed -- to see the works of God, no matter how beautiful or terrible. But can she see her way from darkness to light and bring with her the people she loves?

Redemption Song. Book two in Last Days and Times. Book four in the Nightwatch series.

About the Author

Loy, Stephan Michael: -

Hi! Stephan Michael Loy here. A bit about me:

First that name is pronounced 'Steven, ' not 'Stefan' as so many people suppose. My mom was as imaginative as she was inventive and I suffer accordingly: -). I've published fantasy, science fiction, and satire since 2010. All those stories come from my highly imaginative and inventive mind, but they're also anchored in my wide and long experience.

--Of growing up dirt poor, in dicey neighborhoods, and with the unflaggable intention of escaping those situations.

--Of working as a journalist. A degree in Journalism from Indiana University and publication in three Midwestern newspapers, including the Louisville Courier-Journal and the Bloomington Herald-Telephone.

--Of serving as an officer in the US Army, a move that pretty much truncated that career in journalism. Served as an Armor officer, that is, led M60A3 tanks as part of the 4th Infantry Division/11th Armored Cavalry covering force on the East-West frontier of Cold War Germany in the 1980s. Executive officer of an M1 tank company in 3/63 Armor, Germany.

--After leaving the military, I took up my second love, art, the first being the aforesaid journalism. Art history student, commercial artist, and art teacher of almost thirty years. I designed and executed all my book covers.

--First and foremost, I'm a family man. Married over forty years to the coolest woman on Earth. Two wonderful boys, one of which is disabled with autism, cerebral palsy, and mild mental handicaps. I'm allowed to exist in the same house with my two cats, Buffy the Cat Toy Slayer, and the Great and Powerful Oz, First Kitty Deluxe. Still pining for my rescue Greyhound Petra, off in the Elysian Fields of Chasing Rabbits and Rolling in Grass.

I use all of this background in the stories I create to ensure the most authentic, immersive, and exciting experience for my readers.
