The twin planets of Opal and Quake suffer from Summertide -- huge tidal forces as both planets orbit closest to their sun. This Summertide is to be even more violent, for not only are the planets orbiting close to their sun, but there is a grand conjunction of the neighbouring stars and planets to make this event even more violent. Adding to this mix are people's own agendas and perhaps even an insight to the long lost alien "Builders". Book 1 of The Heritage Universe series.
