A race for power and wealth transforms into a race to save the world in Al Onia’s debut novel, Javenny. A young woman’s calling may be all that stands between Earth and the dreams of a dying alien race… assuming she survives the machinations of her church and the corporate sharks who want to use her for their own ambitions. Javenny is a globe spanning adventure that asks the question; can a single person change the world?
