Chelsea didn’t try to teleport. All she wanted was to play the Battle of the Bands show. But after accidentally teleporting onto classified Navy vessel SeaSatellite5, all she’s rocking is the boat. Once it’s sorted out that Chelsea’s not a threat, SeaSat5’s top scientist offers Chelsea a position on the crew as an archaeology intern. Dr. Saint studies people with powers, believing them to be descendants of Atlantean refugees, except Chelsea’s powers are beyond anything on previous record.

While great for everyone else onboard, the miracle of Chelsea is Trevor’s worst nightmare. The same girl who’d given him a brief lifeline to sanity three months ago literally fell from the sky, under a mile of ocean, and onto the very station where he’s employed. Making matters worse, Trevor’s family are Lemurians, Atlantis’s enemy, and Chelsea’s presence is unpredicted—a wrench in an already unstable situation. But Trevor wants no part of his family’s war. The only thing he wants is Chelsea, Atlantean or not.

Days into Chelsea’s sudden appearance, SeaSatellite5 uncovers Atlantean ruins and a massive artifact cache, placing its entire, hundred-man crew in the crosshairs of an ancient war. There are those who want the Atlantean relics inside the ruins destroyed, and only Trevor knows the treasures for what they really are: Link Pieces, tools used by the ancient civilizations for their time-travel war.

With lies and shifting alliances abound, Chelsea and Trevor will have to think fast in order to save the station. If they don’t, the Lemurians will seize the artifacts and Atlantis will be destroyed forever.

I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
It's been a while since I picked up anything else other than contemporary novels and hell I am so glad to give this book a chance.

Chelsea just wanted to survive the Battle of the Bands show where she's supposed to perform with her band for the audience and hopefully, win. So waking up in a strange room and being told that she had teleported to a classified Navy vessel is the last thing that she would have expected. Enter Trevor. The guy that had at least tried to save her from being attacked by a stranger a few months ago, and now he's standing there on the other side of the room, being a part of the Navy that most likely decided to put her in jail for trespassing a classified area. If only that's the case.

The plot blew me away. I was so excited when I read the blurb and got even more excited by the time I finished this book. I definitely love Jessica Gunn's take on history and the way she molded it into something new and fresh. Add superpowers and a perfect dose of romance and action, this book is a must-read for you fantasy lovers.

I absolutely enjoy the characters and how they developed throughout the story. The pace and writing style of the story is perfect, same for how the romance had developed. Once I step through the first chapter I am definitely hooked. Overall, Everything was so exciting from the beginning of the novel and I am pleased to say that I would definitely be recommending this book to everyone.
