About the Book

As a linguist and military interpreter, Eliadmaru Faraa has always been a supporting character in other people's stories. And so far, that's been just fine with him: it's words he loves, not swordplay or affairs of state.

Then a nephew of the Emperor shows up asking for Eliadmaru's help on a diplomatic mission. He fears it might be a fool's errand. But the potential gains are too great to ignore: saving an ailing princess and stopping the trade of weapons to the border.

Now Eliadmaru is caught in the middle between the Emperor's young nephew, a stubborn king, an irritating ambassador, and a sorceress with a secret and a high sex drive. Which is more difficult?not disgracing himself during a touchy diplomatic negotiation, winning back his boyhood sweetheart, or translating his lovelorn teenage boss's amateur poetry? He'll soon find out....

"The Interpreter's Tale" is the only fantasy novel ever told from the perspective of a diplomatic interpreter: a role both ubiquitous and vital in the real world, but thoroughly neglected in both realistic and speculative fiction - until now.
