Description


An amazing discovery has been made on Jupiter's third largest moon that could lead to the extinction of mankind. An alien artifact sits quietly under five miles of ice and ocean on Europa. It has been inactive for millions of years, but as humans reach out into space and begin to colonize, it is accidentally woken. Captain Alex Hull of the crew of the UESA Tereshkova have been tasked with ferrying Earth Gov Vice President Wyman to Europa to personally oversee the mission that will recover the artifact and bring it back to Earth. But there are other forces at work that will do anything to stop the Vice President and his mission. Known as the Voxx, or the Voice of Resistance, they feel this is a discovery that belongs to all mankind, not just Earth Gov. In a winding, fast-paced adventure, Captain Hull must confront the conspiracy surrounding the artifact, and try to make it off Europa Station alive! FACTS:--The idea for Exodus: Europa had been rattling around in Terence's brain since he began writing Biogenesis. He just never had the time to truly develop the idea.--Exodus: Europa was written during National Novel Writing Month 2004. During the month of November, you have 30 days to write a 50,000 word novel. In just thirteen days, Terence finished this book with 57,199 words.--The majority of the book takes place on Europa Station. Hidden beneath five miles of ice and ocean on the small Jovian moon (Europa is roughly the size of Earth's moon), there lies a secret.--Captain Hull's ship, the UESA Tereshkova, was named for the first woman cosmonaut, Valentina Tereshkova. She first launched into space on June 16th, 1963 aboard the Vostok 6 and made 48 orbits of Earth.
