An award-winning science fiction author, Sarah Zettel proves equally adept at high fantasy with The Sorcerer's Treason, her fantasy debut. This compelling novel, which blends elements of Russian, Chinese, and Indian myth to create a complex and believable new world, should please Zettel's fans and earn her an appreciative new audience.|
A lonely, vision-haunted outcast, Bridget Lederle maintains a Lake Superior lighthouse. A vision leads her to rescue a strangely dressed shipwreck victim who claims to be from another world--a world which, he says, Bridget is destined to save. Impossibly, Valin Kalami knows she has visions of the past and future--and he too has visions. After seeing his visions of Isavalda, Bridget agrees to sail with him across the Land of Death and Spirit to his world. There she discovers she may not trust Valin--or anyone else in the treacherous, intrigue-tangled imperial court of Isavalta.
Zettel's SF novels are Reclamation, winner of the Locus Award for Best First Novel and a Philip K. Dick Award finalist; Fool's War, a New York Times Notable Book; Playing God; The Quiet Invasion; and Kingdom of Cages.
