The main novel is set in two locations: Port Ticonderoga and Toronto. Both are in the province of Ontario, Canada. Port Ticonderoga is a town sitting on two main rivers, the Louveteau [or "lovetow"] and the Jogues [or "jogs"]. These rivers are the lifeblood of the town in the beginning of the story, driving traffic and merchandise in and out.
