After the Loculus of Healing is smashed, Jack, Cass, and Aly think that their quest is over. So the three tweens return home to live out their last months. But when Jack and Cass’s Loculus shards fuse together, they realize their mission is still possible. However, the Massa took the remaining shards back to their headquarters on Karai’s island. To get the Massa’s attention and be returned to the island, the three friends pursue the Loculus of Strength held by the statue of Zeus in Olympia. Once they touch the Loculus, Zeus’s statue comes to life and the tweens lose the Loculus. The Massa trap the friends and take them back to the island. With Marco and Jack’s mom’s help, Jack, Cass, and Aly find the Karai rebels but they are attacked by Zeus’s statue from Olympia. The statue opens the rift in the Heptakiklos and he pulls Aly inside with him. Marco and Cass close the rift, but the statue’s actions cause the continent of Atlantis to rise.
