Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PERRIS, Calif. - Mar 20, 2017 - In his debut novel, “Reverence,” author Joshua Landeros has created a strong inspirational character in William Marconi that will resonate with all readers as they follow his quest for the truth and the struggle to maintain his values and morality against opposing forces.
William Marconi is a Super Soldier, one of the elite military members of the United Nation Republic, the world dominating government superpower. When a new terrorist group emerges challenging UNR leader Chancellor Venloran, the soldiers are charged with protecting the Republic at any cost. As the battle against the rebellion ensues, Will learns the government he protects has been keeping many secrets from him. Faced with internal conflict, Will must determine just who and what can be trusted as the lines between tyranny and freedom become increasingly blurred.
More than your average Sci-Fi action story, in “Reverence” Landeros encourages readers to embrace the idea of constantly questioning their surroundings. He cautions that people who just “go with the flow” are victims in their own way, with such inaction often resulting in tragedy. As leaders have the power to bring either prosperity or destruction to the lives they are sworn to represent and protect, the story directly parallels with current world headlines, and readers are identifying with the similarities. “In times such as ours, this book functions as a timely reminder of a government’s true purpose, and the lengths that some people will go to in order to protect their freedom…Will is an antihero for any age, someone who has been duped into the dark side and must claw his way back into the light.” –John Staughton, Self-Publishing Review
