    Four hostages are rescued from a group of religious extremists in Barcelona. After five years of being held captive together, they make a vow to always watch out for one another. But they never expected this... The world they have returned to has been transformed by water - and the water is rising. As it continues to flow from the earth's mantle, entire countries disappear. High ground becomes a precious commodity. And before 50 years have passed, there will be nowhere left to run....

    Q says: "A great "what-if" apolcalyptic exploration"
    "Illogical plot; poor narrating"
    Overall

    The premise of the book is weak at best, but could have been saved with good writing - it wasn't. The characters are inconsistent at best, and whiny and completely unrealistic at worst. Some of the climatology was interesting but in other parts the author has some serious gaps in his understanding of science and of the world. I followed to the end out of sheer determination with one more illogical step after another (both in the characters personal lives and the flooded world). The narration made it worse- the accents were terrible and never what they were described as - a "California drawl" sounded like a drunk Ozzy.
