Thran Reborn is the story of Andalarn Thran, who is trying to reestablish his family on Adylonis. The Thran family was exiled to the mainland for taking sides with another family when it attacked another race four hundred years before. He and Baliak are allies, and he appeals to the Telmet for help in bringing his family back to its former glory. The Suum move against Thran in a military push just as Andalarn comes close to all he wants. A Council referees between the two; if the Council recognizes them as the Ascendant, the chosen family becomes the ruling authority on the island. Added to the mix is a legendary creature called a Diur who would end life on the island if it returned. Can Thran overcome all obstacles to restore his family to its once proud glory?
Although a good read, Thran Reborn gets bogged down in the fictitious language, and that takes away from the story. The pacing drags in a few places but overall is good. The characters are convincing and the dialogue is well-crafted.
If you are inclined to be patient with a meandering storyline, give this book a chance. It has merits that warrants a read.
