Major Christopher "Kit" Kendall and his fiancee Jane "Jinx" Howell are heading home from New Guinea to be married. Before they leave, a shaman gives June an pouch containing a powder that June swallows making her invulnerable. Their plane crashes, causing an avalanche which makes the lake recede and reveal the city of the Arohitans. The pair are attacked by the Arohitans, but June protects Kit. An Arohitan recognizes the pouch as containing the amulet of Kara, their former ruler. Believing June to be Kara, the Arohitans crown her their ruler and she names Kit leader of the Arohitan army.
