Lucy has prepared against all the dangers of the desert. . .or so she thinks. After discovering a huge skeleton unlike any she has seen before, Lucy is betrayed by the evil Dr. Owens, who plans to use the finding for his own nefarious purposes. Lucy is jetted into a bizarre new world with strange new flora and fauna, where danger and wonder are always just around the corner. She will have to use all of her scientific training, will, and wits to get back home in time to stop Dr. Owens.
