Book description
THREE AGAINST ATLANTIS

  • Ason; Prince of an ancient house, intent on restoring the keystone of hs father's power, braves the limits of the land-rimmed sea to sail North, through the cold fog, to the icy island where with heroic effort, the key to victory over Atlantis may be found.

  • Inteb: Ex-envoy from the Pharaoh, reluctant voyager to the forbidding island of Yerni, armed only with his arcane knowledge and his loyalty to Ason.

  • Naikeri: Proud daughter of the Albi, she has never known a warrior like Ason, nor a world like the one she helps him to created - a world that will focus on the great monument of Stonehenge.


------------------------
This was the world.

The blue waters of the Mediterranean were at the heart of it. The world was the islands in this sea and the lands that ringed its shores. Journey was by water, across the sea, and up the rivers of fresh water that fed it.

This was the world where bold warriors battled with bronze swords. without bronze here could be no warriors - just as without tin there could be no bronze.
Copper alone was too soft to make a warrior's weapon.

Therefore no journey was too difficult, no effort too great, to obtain the tin that transformed the abundant and malleable copper into noble bronze.

Only the boldest warriors dared to voyage to the ends of the world, to venture up the rivers to find this tin. Only the braves dared to go beyond the land-rimmed sea, out through the narrow straits into the storm-filled Atlantic bey9ond. To sail north in the cold fog, to the icy island in the ocean where, with heroic effort, the tin could be found.

This was the world one thousand five hundred years before the birth of Christ. (1500 BC)
