"Alpha Redemption" by P. A. Baines Book Review

Genre: Christian Science-Fiction
Recommendation: Is there something beyond Excellent?

Originality – 5/5
Writing Style – 5/5
Plot – 5/5
Characters – 5/5
Aesthetics – 5/5

Wow! Can I say it again? Wow! Alpha Redemption is easily one of the best books I’ve ever read.

Brett Denton, a man who has experienced the greatest tragedy in life, is now on his way as the first pioneer to the Alpha Centauri star system. His only companion on the voyage is a learning on-board computer and his own memories. What will Brett find at Alpha Centauri? What will he find within himself?

Paul Baines’ writing is realistic, detailed, witty, and insightful. I felt like I was actually reading the history of Brett Denton’s life. There are a lot of humorous moments as “jay” the computer tries to figure out his human counterpart. And the Christian message in the book is unmistakable.

Another major plus for the book is the fact that the ending is so unexpected. It’s very appropriate and yet completely unpredictable.

I recommend Alpha Redemption to any reader, whether you’re a lover of sci-fi or not. It will be one of the best reading experiences you’ve ever had. It is, indeed, an Excellent novel.

Alpha Redemption is available from Splashdown Books.

Aliens. Vigilante Ninjas. Mad scientists. Hard-nosed detectives. Super-heroes.


An alien ship has crash-landed on Earth, setting off a new wave of drug addiction and world war in its wake, while the sole survivor of the wreckage vows revenge against the god-like authorities of his home planet. At the same time, the new president of the GenRes Company is obsessed with living up to his father’s medical success and has just discovered how to transform normal children into Genetically Altered super-humans. Who will control these children? The scientist, the alien, and a couple of ambitious criminals are all eager to keep them for their own use. But Someone else has entirely different plans for them. Follow as each development merges together and a new breed of adolescent superheroes rises to the forefront in book one of The Gifted: In the Beginning.
