About the Author: P. R. Garcia is a not too-grayed-haired old lady who, at the age of sixty one, was inspired to write a book about aliens from the ice moon of Jupiter, Europa. Sitting down at her computer with a phenomenal idea in mind, she used her love of Science Fiction and her knowledge as a naturalist on the whale watching boats, combined with the legend of Atlantis and Puma Punku and other known ancient landmarks from Earth's past, to weave a story of intrigue, mystery, magic and adventure.

My Review: The author did an amazing job producing a masterpiece of fantasy, science fiction, adventure, romance, thriller, all combined in this wonderful novel.
Europa is a young girl that has no clue about where his family came from. She was always told that her family was royal, living in exile because of a war that broke in their original land. Although she lives with a very restricted protocol of security measures, nothing seems to be strange for the situation. But suddenly, when her mother is assassinated, her world goes upside down and nothing is as it looks like. She finds out she has an older brother she did not know about and all people around her were there with the sole purpose to protect her. Even her new boyfriend is indirectly part of this incredible tale.
The book is so full of twists and adventures that you will enjoy it from the first page and it will be very hard to put it down. Kudos to the author, who produced a strong set of characters that you will easily learn to love and respect. The scenes are richly described and the persecution sequences are intense.
I highly recommend this book to the permanent library of all readers that appreciate a very well written novel. You will not be disappointed.
