Morgan really wants to save his daughter Jennifer, even realizing that it is taking an interminably long time to do so. After finally being reunited with her after years away and having a few adventures together, losing her now if he fails to make it back in time would devastate him, something from which he could never forgive himself. So what does fate do as our hero and Shakira continue along their way, but throw an obstacle in their path to which once again, Morgan’s honour will not let him turn away. The fact that Travis Morgan will always stop to help someone in need is one of his most admirable qualities, but it also usually keeps him from doing whatever task he may have set out to do and more often than not, gets him into a whole lot of trouble. Such is the case here whereby he saves a young lady in distress and things turn out to be not at all as how they seemed. Really nice to see with this book was how Michael Fleisher tied it back to a story that Mike Grell had done long ago, building a little of the mythos up around the original Atlanteans at the same time. It was not a huge thing or anything truly revelatory, but it worked all the same and made Morgan’s world just a little bit more interesting while causing him a lot of turmoil in the meantime. By the end of the story, these new foes are defeated though there is always a chance that they could come back at some later point, and Morgan and Shakira may have just found a means to reach their destination a lot faster than they anticipated. Hopefully such is the case as this particular tale has run on for quite some time and though it has been good, there are always new adventures for our hero to partake of.
