Publisher's Summary

In the mountains of the Southwest, in the time before the continents were known, the future of the entire world rested upon the shoulders of a boy prophet whose abduction would threaten to break the world.  

As a youth, Kochen witnessed the death of his father at the hands of a gruesome spirit that stalked his village's farmlands. From that moment forth, he became a ward of the priests of the village in the cliffs. As he grew, he would begin to experience horrific visions, gifts from the spirits, that all of the other priests dismissed. 

When the ancient enemies of the Cliff People raid the village and steal Kochen away, they set in motion world-changing events, which threaten to break the shackles that bind the spirits to the Earth. A group of hunters are sent to bring Kochen back to his rightful place. As Kochen's power grows, so too does the power of the spirits, and with the help of an ancient seer and his hunter allies, he seeks to restore balance to the world as it falls into brutal madness.

Are the ancestors actually Demons?

3.5 This tale of ancient man and the quest for visions and answers finds a visionary being used as a rope in a tug-a-war match between to tribes.
Great portrayal of living off the land and appeasing the spirits of the ancestors. Interesting characters with each having their own personality and history. The spirits are mean and require their sacrifice, so they take when they want. Death and dismemberment throughout as the tribes fight

Brilliant

Jacy Morris does it again. The opening novel of this series introduces you to a story that is nothing like This Rotten World, and in this way Jacy invites you to read/listen to something very special in its own right. I want to say I was 'delighted' to listen to a Native American story, but wouldn't want the use of such a light and airy word to take anything away from the fact that the story is harrowing and downright grim. To explore two rival communities and their relationships with each other, problematic community members, beneath their nebulous relationships with the unknown and the unknowable entities of the great beyond... and then journey with them to experience what can only be described as terrible shit, was a wild ride. I want to tell you what I think its a cautionary tale about, but that would give too much away. Have a listen for yourself.
