A terrible storm at sea. A shipwreck. A remote island, forever wrapped in mists But all is not as it seems, for Prospero--magician, sorcerer, enchanter--can conjure up a storm if it suits his purpose as it does.

He was once the Duke of Milan. But Antonio, his ambitious brother, plotted with the King of Naples, and devised a plan to set Prospero adrift in a boat with his three-year-old daughter, Miranda, certain that they would die at sea. But Antonio's plan failed. Prospero and Miranda survived to live on a remote island for twelve years.

Now, thanks to Prospero's magical powers, Antonio, the King and Ferdinand, the King's handsome young son--are shipwrecked on that very island! Furthermore, as Ferdinand is quick to notice, Miranda has become a beautiful young woman.
