No one said being a Princess would be easy. Especially when the Prophecy that was supposed to send Crown Princess Sarayna down her predestined path was torn asunder on the day of her birth. With little to go on, and not much left to do, Sarayna must move onward with the support of her family's insight to complete the tasks that have been lain out for her in order to restore order to the Empire that is her home. But where does she even begin? Sent back to her mother's Otherrealm, Sarayna must use her wit, her cunning, and most of all, her magic to find her Emperor, return with him to the Empire, and renew her Prophecy before time runs out, but without a Dream to standby, she could be sent on a fool's errand that would send all of them into the clutches of the relentless Borderlands.

Alexanders saga, the saga of Alexander the Great was most probably presented by an Icelander as a gift to the joint kings of Norway in the winter of 1262-3. The Icelander abbot Brandr Jonsson had just been appointed bishop of Holar by the Norwegian hierarchy thus becoming the first native of Iceland for several decades to occupy an Icelandic see And 1262 was the very year in which Iceland finally succumbed to pressure and became part of the Norwegian empire. Keeping these events in sight without laying undue emphasis on them. The Ethics of Empire examines the thinking of the saga in contrast with that of its source. Walter of Chatillon's Alexandreis the most successful Latin epic of the Middle Ages. Walter's poem is radically ambiguous in its portrayal of Alexander, but the Old Norse-Icelandic translator proves himself more than a match for his master clarifying some issues whilst adding ambiguities of his own and producing a work of astonishing richness and subtlety. The present analysis gives special prominence to the relationship between the scene in which God promises Alexander sovereignty over all peoples and that in which the Macedonian declares his wish to conquer peoples who may live beyond the world of the northern hemisphere.
