Sarah Zettel's epic fantasy A SORCERER'S TREASON (4) journeys from a lighthouse on Lake Superior to a glittering new world. Bridget Lederle rescues a stranger from shipwreck and he convinces her that his Empress needs her "visions." As Bridget learns her way in Isavalta, she discovers she might be playing for the wrong side. Blending mythos from Chinese, Russian and Pan-Indian cultures, Ms. Zettel's magical world is a well-crafted milieu in this first of a trilogy. (Apr., 528 pp., $27.95)
