Salaatu — Lisa Short
Few in the Empire of Oun know of the salaatu, mysterious sea-dwelling folk from somewhere beyond the Empire's eastern northeastern shores, and fewer still know of their magic. But when the dying Emperor learns that the salaatu may have cured a member of his own court, an obscure underlibrarian, of her terrible injuries years ago, he orders her to take him to them, no matter the cost.
