Time traveling is outlawed on the planet of Dendera. Even though Lyra is a queen, she is finding it hard to live within the confines of the law. She takes one last trip—to rescue her sister. A noble cause, one she hopes her new husband, Astor, will understand.
When Astor finds his wife arriving back from a time traveling mission he is equal parts relieved and livid. Time traveling has become riskier than ever, and it is never a guarantee that the traveler will make it back alive. He decides he needs to put his foot down and let Lyra know that there are certain rules that cannot be broken.
