TeranesiaBook - 1999
Prabir Suresh and his younger sister, Madhursee, live in a remote paradise called Teranesia, where their biologist parents are studying an unexplained genetic mutation among the island's butterflies. Then civil war erupts across Indonesia, shattering their idyllic world and their lives. Twenty years later, Prabir is still plagued by feelings of guilt and an overwhelming responsiblity forhis sister, now a biologist herself. Against his advice, Madhurse is returning to Teranesia to solve the mysteryof the butterflies and study strange new plant and animal species that have been emerging throughout the region-species seperated from theirknown cousins by dramatic mutations that seem far too efficient to have arisen by chance. Afraidfor her safety, Prabir joins forces with independant scientist Martha Grant to find her. But whathe will discover on Teranesia is far more dangerous and wondrous than he can ever fear--or imagine..
