Circle of the Lantern

An Annotated Translation of the Itlani Classic: “Seyrán ta Tainaa”

 

On Itlán, a planet not too far from Earth, a war is raging. A chieftainess of the Nordlings grows ever more uneasy in her search for peace, and an orphan boy, alone and thirsting for adventure, takes refuge in his books and maps. Yet, all is not as it appears, and things begin unfolding in unexpected ways.

The time of the Convergence of Prophecies has dawned, and the Four Powers, long hidden from the world, hold the key to what is destined to come. A dark priestess will seek a weapon of vengeance that all have sought yet failed to find. Wizards, shamans, monks and kings will kill and love, live and die to see their world and fondest dreams be born.

 

Yet, none but the Circle of the Lantern can see this quest to its foretold end. A world will die, but can a planet be reborn? A fledgling boy and a Northern Queen hold the answer.
