Tond, Book Two: The Wanderer
In a darkly humorous, paranoid prequel to Book One of “Tond”, Tayon tells of his own adventures, and of the origin of the great menace that threatens both of the warring Tondish civilizations – and how they both facilitated its creation. More
An interlude during Rolan’s quest, “Tond, Book Two: The Wanderer” is set fifteen years earlier. Tayon Dar-Táeminos, a cynical Fyorian loremaster, is wandering in northern Tond and collecting lore. Then, pursued by hideous invaders, Tayon discovers that he carries a great mechana that can stop those same invaders – but he has no knowledge of what it is or how to use it. He decides that he must either find the answers or forge his own mechana powerful enough to thwart them. His decision could have fatal consequences, since the attackers plan to drive him (and the nefarious Karjan high-knight Roagh) to unwittingly help them create a terrifying monster.
“Tond: The Wanderer” is the second book in a series of four, plus an auxiliary volume. The adventure began with “Tond: The Sons of Tlaen Ras-Erkéltis” and will continue in “Tond: Northward Journey”, and “Tond: The War of Mechanas”. The extra volume will answer more questions about the world of Tond.
