Welcome to the ARPIA.
This novel, available for free online (under a Creative Commons licence) and available on demand at Lulu.com and Amazon.com, belongs to the science-fiction genre due to the context, but contains other genres such as romance (parental love, friendship and love), mystery (investigations), adventure (discovery and exploration) and action, and is meant to be accessible to readers of all backgrounds and ages (you don't have to be a sci-fi buff, in other words).
Any comments/reviews/... would be more than welcome.
You can also view a full synopsis here. Just be aware that a synopsis is a summary of the events (in this case, two pages long), including possible spoilers.
Arpia: volume 2
Three main stories run through the second book: the story of the Shroud of Silence, the adventures of Wadina & Artemis (characters from the first Arpia novel) and the tale of a Fleak. What this means is for you to find out, and this can be achieved by contacting me to tell me what research group is linked to the Unrest Station (here, Google is your friend).
