"Rich, compelling, intellectual treat of a novel, told in detail so vivid that you can hear the rustle and feel the breeze on your face. The science in this science fiction tale is anthropology, writ large from Native Americans to aliens, from canines to CNN. The frontispieces of each chapter are themselves worth the price of admission, deftly harvested from poets and philosophers in all eras of humanity. Highly recommended!" - Paul Levinson-Author of "The Plot to Save Socrates," "Unburning Alexandria," "Borrowed Tides," "Silk Code," and many more.
Catastrophe befell Earth seventy-five years ago. An alien virus, accelerating evolution in wild and unpredictable ways, has devastated Earth and rendered humanity an endangered species. An ancient prophecy, a Warrior of the People, and his prophetic vision of an unknown youth may be the keys to healing both the human race and the planet.
After he’s wounded in battle, Otaktay—a Warrior of the People (a burgeoning society based upon Native American traditions)—receives a vision which opens the door to the rediscovery of a lost and forgotten prophecy as old as the first people of North America. With the guidance of the Ma’iingan, he and his band of brothers—the Swooping Hawks—are sent on a desperate race against time to find and rescue the young man foretold by the Prophecy of the Seven Fires.
In the New World, survival of the fittest is the rule as the struggle against savage, bloodthirsty predators and shifting paradigms creates an exciting and action-packed adventure where old magic and ancient prophecy shape the future.
