An Earthling woman who belongs to an extinct race.
The mystical portal which will forever change their fates.
Océana never imagined being stuck aboard a ship with the Izarkian Prince Kodee. Ordinarily, Izarkians and humans don't come into such close contact. It's forbidden. But she's en route to handle the most important mission of her life--and the swoon-worthy prince might just be the death of her.
Upon arrival at the portal, the one that will reverse time and save her people, Océana's reality is thrown into a reverse orbit. Nothing goes as planned, and the two of them wind up trapped inside the portal.
