The Islands of Iros
L.M. Bracklow, author
New recruits of the Nakamura Training Camp are told three of them will be given the honor of joining the Crimson Raiders’ delayed mission—searching for Selior Darakhan’s finger. According to legend, Darakhan was a sorcerer who transferred all his powers into his severed index finger before he was caught and executed for committing unforgivable crimes. Supposedly, whoever finds and consumes the finger will absorb its power, becoming a sorcerer themselves. This rumor was enough to send seafarers everywhere on a ceaseless search. The finger, nevertheless, has never been found.
"A fantasy that unfolds in marvelous layers and teaches readers to expect surprises."
