It's far into the future. The Earth's rotation has stopped and the Sun is dying. The Oceans have shifted towards the Poles, flooding all of the cities to the North. The cities in the South have been punished with a blistering, relentless Sun in a vast, dry, deserted landscape. The survivors have learned to adapt to months of deadly heat, living in darkness beneath the Earth in underground cities. A scout comes unexpectedly to the colony - near death, he spends his first days in a coma, as rumors surface of a "habitable zone". As supplies near depletion, the colonists argue - Who will journey to the zone? And what message is the scout trying to deliver? Experience a Journey into the Cosmos with A.L. Mengel in his Science Fiction storytelling debut. A novel which inhabits post-apocalyptic worlds, and soars into the Celestial Heavens, the story explores the sought-after answers that have fascinated the human race for millennia: Are we alone? Or are we guided by another force?

FROM A DEVASTATED EARTH TO THE SILENT SANCTUARY OF SPACE. WILL HUMANKIND SURVIVE?
THE EUROPA EFFECT
They awoke in deep space…
…on a ship they had never known…
…in a time which seemed distant.
They were exploring. The vast, the infinite, the mysterious. The cosmos.
But they each shared a mental gap. A psychological disconnect. How had they gotten there? What were their origins?
They are assigned the same mission and explore together. As they discover their deep, cosmic connection, they unearth a common past. And search for a habitable world that might still exist – but where?
Would their shared mission connect their journey through the cosmos to a life once known?
A.L. Mengel examines the origins of the universe in a sculpted, poetic vision through the lens of a rescue ship on an exploration mission. The story further analyzes the questions of The Vega Chronicles: Who is out there? And how far through space and time does our destiny reach?
