The sorcerous Mr. Flood has drowned Johnstown, Pennsylvania three times. The fourth time will be the charm, and the city will vanish beneath the waves forever...unless his flood-making apprentice, Dee, has anything to say about it. Dee uses her own powers against her wicked mentor, setting off a cataclysmic battle of magic rainmakers in the heart of a raging storm to end all storms.
