Tigana is the story of a country at war. Or a peninsula occupied by two warring rival empires. The main character is a teenaged boy who's a singer in a traveling troupe. He meets a man named Alessan who says he's a flute player from a neighboring province (who's a temporary member of his troupe), but he's really plotting sedition against the two occupying empires. One province is cursed with the loss of its name, and the loss of all its works of art and the memories of anyone who lived there. Alessan is from this province, and his life's work is to regain its name and rebuild it. There are more characters than I can fit into an easy summary, and the plot is more complex than I've described. It's political intrigue, but full of character development. There are betrayals: of self, of others, of country. There are sacrifices and revenge.
