The planet Miranda has a distinctive feature: every few decades, the ice caps melt and the oceans rise to drown the land. The wizard Gregorian has sown chaos in the time preceding the great Tides, and he must be stopped before he can disappear. But how to find him when he's probably hiding in a lost city?

The idea for this book was fascinating, and if it had more interesting characters, I think I would have liked it better. As it is, I'm beginning to get the feeling that I prefer my sci-fi on a screen; I need to be able to see the concepts to really enjoy the story. Having better developed characters would help too.
