Into the Nanten
The Nanten is a jungle so hostile that to enter it willingly is considered suicide. This is the journal of Marceles na Tetrarch, a warrior currently exiled to the Nanten for murder. He goes in search of a man that he hates, who was exiled there 20 years ago: Brin Salisir.
It was rumored that Salisir went to discover a cult risen from the darkest dredges of humanity. What Marceles didn’t know was if the rumors were true. Into the Nanten was updated in real time (EST) from 9/9/14 – 3/27/16 – when he finished an entry or illustration it appeared here in our world, on this blog. He wrote almost every evening.
If this is your first visit to Marceles’ journal WE SUGGEST YOU START FROM THE BEGINNING, with his first entry, and follow along until you have caught up. Also available in paperback, ebook, and audiobook.

“I’m not sure which of Into the Nanten’s accomplishments is more impressive, that he produced the epic jungle adventure I had hoped The River would be, or that he kept me engaged enough to read an entire book online.”Tim Ward
