The northern nation of Tartheagu continues to be referenced with increasing frequency as Book Five of the Norothian Cycle – The Channel War – rolls along, but it has thus far only appeared on maps in large scale without much detail. In order to rectify that, here you go.
This map displays the far northwest corner of the continent Noroth, with most of the Empire of the Code visible to the south, and the coastal edge of the Il-Tasardom of Kantantanalace on the eastern edge. The Tarthagars and Kantans, it may be recalled, jointly invade the western half of Old Daul (southeast of this map, visible here) way back in Book Two and occupied a region known as The Protectorate. By Book Four the T-K alliance has fractured, leaving Tartheagu in sole occupation of most of those lands.
In other news, Book Five remains in progress. The first “Part” (roughly a third) is with Beta readers, the second is going out to them this weekend, and the final part should be ready for editing within the next several weeks. Tentatively then, still shooting for a March release, likely toward the end of the month. But it is getting there. 🙂
