Wizard is the second book in the Gaean Trilogy.
Gaea is world and goddess, a dazzling pageant of wild mythology and chimerical creatures in a gargantuan, strange and beautiful world. Cirocco is now the Wizard of Gaea, powerful but troubled. And ready to lead the revolt against Gaea’s mad, capricious tyranny.
Wizard goes dramatically further than humor or humanism. It’s also very serious science fiction about a genetic manipulator with the power of a god and her sentient creations’ struggle for self-determination. It’s clever, complex and confusing, but never confused. And it’s the highest point of this roller-coaster series.
