In 1870 Jules Verne gave birth to the science fiction genre by publishing a story about the extraordinary journey of Professor Pierre Aronnax and his chance encounter with a mysterious and enigmatic genius and his otherworldly engineering marvels. Over 150 years later, Dr. Amanda Collins, Professor Aronnax's direct descendant, is about to embark on her own voyage, one that will challenge her to the core of her very being. A journey where she will learn that some legends are real and that there is far more to that original story then she could ever possibly imagine.
