Polar has never felt so lost and adrift ó which is ironic for a merman. The two people he cared for most in the world are dead and nothing can ease his pain or his guilt at their deaths. His lonely pilgrimage takes him to India, as far from home as possible.

On the beautiful island of Grand Siren, Jose has great friends and a good career, but he still has itchy feet and wants to see more of the world. Polar's friends offer to pay his fare to India so he can check up on Polar and ask him to come home. Jose knows his chances are pretty slim, but he jumps at the opportunity anyway. He always had a secret crush on Polar, so he has his own reasons for wanting to succeed.

Polar reluctantly agrees to return to Grand Siren, but chooses to swim home, the long way round. When he and Jose finally get together, Polarís crippling guilt may still prevent them finding their happy-ever-after, even after Jose falls pregnant. But worse still, Mickey is back on the scene, like a shark on the prowl. When Mickey and his dangerous sidekick threaten to rip off a mutual friend, Polar and Jose are compelled to take action, even though this may risk their own lives and the life of their unborn child.
