An inspiring tale of first love and high adventure from award-winning author Gen LaGreca. This novel blends a gripping plot with a heroic battle for freedom.
In a grim world of tyranny, one man struggles to survive. In a place where life is cheap, he prizes his. Where work is drudgery, he gets the one job he wants. Where passion is extinct, he loves a beautiful woman. Then he loses everything.
Arial is an ace pilot who is imprisoned for sedition by Feran, the brutal ruler of Planet Asteron. The young rebel is pushed to desperation when he’s sentenced to undergo an unbearable punishment.
Feran is about to embark on a vital mission that is shrouded in the highest secrecy. But in a death-defying escape, Arial steals his ruler’s spacecraft, foiling his plans. The ship takes the fugitive on Feran’s pre-programmed course, with a mysterious cargo aboard.
Arial’s life is about to change forever—and with it, the fate of two planets.
During the stormy events that seize his life, Arial is drawn to two women. Reevah is the proud Asteronian whose strong will sets her apart in a society where all must obey. She lives for her stolen moments with Arial. But will her love for him seal her doom?
Kristin is the high-spirited woman of another world who falls in love with the handsome stranger who lands on her planet. But will she discover the secret of his past that will make him her mortal enemy?
FUGITIVE FROM ASTERON takes you on a journey to two opposite worlds about to collide. It’s a tale of exotic adventure, of first love, of grit and courage, of harrowing danger, and of a shocking mystery unfolding. At heart, it’s the story of a young man’s struggle to heal the wounds of a brutal past, to learn what makes human happiness possible, and to claim his own life.
About the Author:
Genevieve (Gen) LaGreca writes novels with innovative plots, strong romance, and themes that celebrate personal freedom and independence.
Provocative ideas to challenge the mind and passionate characters to excite the spirit. Stories of unusual people doing unusual things; stories about pressing issues and unnerving conflicts; stories that inspire us to rise above obstacles and reach for our dreams. These are the stories Gen loves to write.
In addition to fiction, Gen also writes social and political commentaries, which have appeared in Forbes, The Orange County Register, The Daily Caller, Real Clear Markets, Mises Daily, The Gainesville Sun, and other publications.
Prior to fiction writing, Gen worked as a pharmaceutical chemist, business consultant, and corporate writer. She holds an undergraduate degree in chemistry from Polytechnic Institute of New York and a graduate degree in philosophy from Columbia University.
Her variety of life experiences–in science and business, as well as in philosophy and writing–brings vibrant characters, urgent issues, thematic depth, and an outside-the-box approach to Gen’s novels. Their sweeping themes of self-sovereignty and the triumph of the individual attract thoughtful readers across genre lines.
