They shortly set sail, however, when they discover that there is an opportunity to catch a giant squid. Taking two dinosaur eggs that are about ready to hatch with them on to Coelacanth, they begin an exciting adventure filled with possibility. Things turn sour, however, when Noah Blackwood, Grace’s grandfather, Travis’ dead wife’s father and his arch nemesis, returns to get his revenge and to take back Grace.
