"We've Been Expecting You."
That was the greeting for all new arrivals as they stood in a shallow, lifeless ocean under the rose-tinted skies of Colonia. The Vegans were known as the protectors of the cosmos; throughout the Universe they formed the 'trinity of life' with the Humans and the Andromedans.
As a new arrival stands in the shallow ocean, after she is welcomed, a message is received: there are survivors of the 'Vega One' star ship disaster. But where were they? And how would they be rescued?
A.L. Mengel crafts undeniably cosmic storytelling on a grand, epic scale: painting the worlds of Colonia in the Lyra Constellation, Planet Zyclon in the Andromeda Galaxy, and a lifeless Earth.
The Arrival of Destiny soars through the interstellar in a swift composition of vibrant carbon and pastel gas clouds that inoculate life in the Universe. Told in an operatic, whispering style, the novel examines the theories of life beyond our solar system...and how our destinies are formed by the brilliant blast of creation.
