The Stranger is a sci-fi apocalyptic tale with moralistic issues involving the fight between love and evil and its repercussions on our planet.
Rhys, an advanced being from another planet, is sent on a mission to Earth in order to determine the planet's destiny and whether it's worth saving, but his judgement is in danger of becoming clouded when he meets and falls in love with Carla, a human who is passionate about making a difference in climate change and other humanitarian issues.
The balance of life on Earth depends upon Rhys's recommendation to the League of Galaxies. But how will Rhys choose between his mission and his love for an Earthling who is intent on saving her planet? Rhys is forced to weigh up the collective evil on Earth and its causal effect on the greater good of other life in the universe against the love he has for one woman.
This is not simply a tale of love between two beings, but a story of the unconditional and sublime love that can exist between two people, and which is the force that drives the cosmos.

About the Author
Sylvia Massara is a multi-genre author based in Sydney, Australia. She loves to dabble in wacky love affairs, drama, murder, scifi (or anything else that takes her fancy) over good coffee.
Born in Argentina, from Italian descent (with a bit of Spanish and Swiss lineage thrown in), and transplanted to Australia at age 10, Sylvia describes herself as a bit of a "moggie" cat by way of mixed pedigree. She is also a citizen of the world as she has travelled widely throughout most of her life and she's the proud owner of three passports.
As with most authors Sylvia draws on her varied experience from the often puzzling tapestry of life. Sylvia loves nature and communing with the animal kingdom (as her pampered kitty, Mia, will attest), and vicariously through the many characters in her head. Occasionally, however, she will venture into the world of humans, albeit for a limited time, as she prefers the unconditional and genuine company that animals bring to this planet. Having said this, Sylvia enjoys the time she spends with her five-year-old niece immersing herself in their many creative projects. She believes the artistic creativity that comes from a child is both spontaneous and direct from the soul.
Sylvia's most recent novel, The Stranger, is a scifi apocalyptic tale of moralistic issues that explores the fight of love vs evil in the cosmos. The novel was inspired by David Bowie (Sylvia's lifelong idol) and much to her pleasure and excitement, Mr Bowie's own management company had agreed to pass on the novel to him as he was a voracious reader. But, alas, this was never to be as the super talented and gifted David Bowie passed away prior to the release of the novel, breaking the heart of millions throughout the world, including Sylvia's own heart and dashing her hopes that she may have met him in person and even worked with him on the adaptation of The Stranger into a screenplay. With great sadness for the loss of her idol, Sylvia dedicated the novel in his memory.
