The world is coming to an end, Aaron and Julissa are married and they are hopeful she is carrying their son, the one who will when he comes of age impregnates the twenty-three brides traveling with them. Twenty-five pods hoping to survive the end of the world while preparing for a new world.
When Julissa’s pod is finally open she finds herself with no hair, no nails and in very serious condition. The face looking down at her is none other than Cherrie who along with others found the cave her grandfather spoke of and survived. Other brides did not make it and others have been kidnapped and are living in Atlantis ruled by none other than Nani Doris. Julissa has been in the pod for almost seventy-five years and a lot has happened, Aaron has fathered children who Julissa calls the glass clan since they are missing layers of skin.
The new world is not what the Lemurians expected, Nani with her father’s money survived and built a new Atlantis with all the luxuries she always had while the Lemurians are barely surviving. Aaron is a prisoner, Jason is blind and missing his tongue because of Julissa’s confession that he didn’t rape her. Just another person she feels guilty about. Cherrie convinces Julissa that in order to get into Atlantis she must find a ruby that contains the wisdom of the world.
After finding the ruby Cherrie betrays her and returns to Atlantis where she sits alongside Nani. There are so few brides left and it is imperative that she finds a way to save as many as she can or there is no hope for a new world and saving the Lemurians. Left alone with little knowledge of what is around her she is found by Aaron’s children who tell her that he never stopped searching for her.
I don’t want to reveal too much since this is the end of this series and the beginning of a new world for Julissa. There are surprises and a new sport the Atlanteans enjoy, watching the gladiators. One of them is Dasan who although an Atlantean protects the Lemurians. The long journey Julissa has taken answers all questions and if you have read the first four books which I highly recommend doing then you will be very satisfied with how it all ends.
