What would you be willing to sacrifice to protect the ones you love?
Tia Violetta is about to turn 30. She lives in a mansion, barricaded away with her paranoid father, Haddon, who has shielded her from the world and her true heritage.
What Tia doesn’t know, is that a sinister, hidden AI, known as SIM, has enslaved humans on Earth through mass mind control.
And SIM is hunting her.
Hadden and Tia are descendants of Helio Tropez, a subterranean safe haven where all inhabitants possess supernatural abilities, and speak in the Matrix language.
Tia discovers she bears the mark of Pentada, along with four other women in her family that she never knew existed.
Together Pentada have can alter the course of humanity forever. Unless their psychic powers were to fall in the hands of SIM.
Just before Hadden dies, he sends a telepathic message to his younger self to time travel fifty years into the future to save Tia.
But by doing so, young Hadden starts a chain of events that will blow Tia’s world apart, sending them on two different timelines.
They must confront dangers in the subterranean and surface worlds to unite Pentada.
And only two possible outcomes await humanity. Will it be ascension to a higher density or complete annihilation of life on Earth?

I loved it! A fantasy sci-fi story involving time travel, a Matrix-like villain, and strong alien family support brings together one epic story! I couldn't put it down.
- Sarah Anderson, Reedsy Reviewer
A richly imagined world filled with intriguing characters. From the first chapter, I was hooked. If you like visionary fantasy, it's definitely worth a read.
- Joanne Taylor, Booksprout Reviewer
From the very first chapter, it had me enthralled. The journey of Hadden and Tia through the different timelines and flashbacks was truly intriguing. I particularly enjoyed the subtle but very clear references to the real situations which are damaging the human race as we know it. I'm looking forward to reading more books from this author. - Christine Azzopardi
The characters are wonderful, the story is compelling. Highly creative throughout. I also love how the book weaves in a commentary on our present-day world with incredible insights on how to address issues so we can live better lives.

I don't say this often, but I was genuinely hooked by Helio Tropez from start to finish!! It's beyond excellent!

The deeper you go into this story, the more the characters unfold. Rieger's ability to reveal just enough to intrigue is amazing. The story draws you in with surprising twists and turns. Resolutions are hard won and beautifully human with all of the flaws and surprising, bright insights that lift us out of the ordinary. An attention grabber.
- Catherine Steele
Helio Tropez is a real page turner. Allow some time when you pick up this novel as you will not be able to put it down. This sci-fi fantasy adventure will grab your attention as the fascinating characters develop and the compelling plot thickens. Interwoven in the story are metaphysical concepts, magical moments, Universal Truths and the challenge of darkness to Light. I highly recommend this book!

Ideally, you love to read a good paper-turner type novel either in paperback or digitally. It's available now on Amazon in both formats. You share books you like on social media or GoodReads
You enjoy Visionary Fantasy
Visionary fantasy fiction is a genre with mind, body, spirit themes and perspectives, including consciousness expansion, spirituality, mysticism, time travel and parapsychology. So think The Alchemist, Illusions, The Earthsea series, The Lathe of Heaven, The Hobbit, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, etc. Maybe you’re familiar with those stories.
You are a seeker of wisdom
You tend to be a seeker of inner truth, the metaphysical, personal growth. You believe in enhancing your quality of life and the realization of aspirations not just for yourself, but for humanity in general. You are keen on a life that has meaning and purpose, whether you've realized that purpose or not. You are curious about hidden mysteries and the paranormal.
