Coolthulhu Presents A New Book Spotlight On:
Synopsis: Europa is a nineteen year old human female who has never heard of the Oonocks. And although she’s heard of the legend of Atlantis, she’s never giving the story much thought.
Europa: Awakenings begins with Queen Medaron’s departure to the world above, to the land of air and land. She is with child and no Oonock child has survived past the age of ten for almost a thousand years. So King Enok and Queen Medaron make the difficult decision that their daughter, Europa, will be born on land as a human, never to know the truth of who she is. In utter despair and sorrow, King Enok watches his only love leave, for a life without him. Because of a war-wound he received from JeffRa at the battle of the Third City, he can no longer live in an air-environment ad must remain below, far from his family.
Twenty years have passed since Queen Medaron came above, and Europa is fast approaching her twentieth birthday. Her life has been fairly normal, as normal as any royal child’s can be. The secret of who she really is has been kept from her, but she does know that she is of royal birth, the next leader of her people, that her great-great-great grandparents had to flee their country which no longer exists and that their enemy’s descendants may still be hunting them. Therefore, she follows a strict set of security rules. Safe and happy, she lives on an isolated estate along the coast line in northern California. But her safety is an illusion, for their enemy has returned and is stalking the future queen, waiting for his chance to end her life.
The day after her birthday, Europa’s perfect word is destroyed when JeffRa assassinates her mother, thinking she was Europa. As she struggles to deal with her mother’s death, Europa’s world is turned upside down when she discovers a secret attic above her mother’s bedroom. There, she finds the picture of her parents hundreds of years old, a land deed which states it was her parents, not her great-grandparents, who bought and settled the land four hundred years before and other strange items. But most terrifying of all is her mother’s diary. Inside, Queen Medaron wrote that Europa would be born human and never know who she really was.
Europa desperately searches for the answers as to who she is, while her protector, Jeanip, tries to keep alive. It is a journey of many danger as JeffRa chases her, determined to personally end her life. Along the way, Europa will lose almost everyone and everything she loves. In this time of turmoil and danger, she must also find the queen inside her and a way to accept the deaths of so many Oonocks who willingly sacrifice their own lives so that she may live. She must learn and accept the true story of Atlantis and the Oonock race if she is to survive.
