Description

With "People of the Mist," the Gears take us to the Chesapeake Bay of six hundred years ago, when the unprovoked and brutal murder of a young woman on the eve of her wedding threatens to turn the entire Algonquin Nation against itself in a brutal war that could destroy them as a people.No ordinary woman, Red Knot was the heir to the Greenstone Clan and the future leader of the independent villages. Her death has shattered all alliances and left a power void that several ambitious clan chiefs see as their destiny to fill. The very air vibrates with the drums and war cries of the rallying warriors.Into the eye of this brewing storm steps the bitter old man they call The Panther. Feared as a sorcerer, The Panther is the only one with the power to demand to be heard by all. But as he digs deeper into the ever-thickening web of lies surrounding the murder, and uncovers darker, more deeply rooted secrets, he fears there may be no words to stop the impending bloodshed.show more

Praise for Kathleen O'Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear and the Novels of North America's Forgotten Past"The multitalented Gears, husband-and-wife archaeologists and best-selling authors, score a literary bull's-eye as they weave another vivid narrative thread into their stunning tapestry of Native Americana....The Gears continue do a magnificent job of advancing a fascinating historical chronicle via action, adventure, and archaeology."--"Booklist "on "People of the Longhouse""Rich in cultural detail....Both longtime fans and newcomers will be satisfied. Another fine entry in an ambitious, long-running series."--"Kirkus Reviews "on "People of the Longhouse""Set in the 1300s largely in what is now Alabama and Mississippi, this complex novel tracks three wanderers' quest to create peace in violent times. Blended with the carefully drawn suspense of court intrigues, colorful characters and sharp plot twists, this is a terrific tale."--"Publishers Weekly "on "People of the Thunder"""People of the Raven", at one level, is the re-creation of a lost and forgotten civilization by two noted archaeologists. But this story of Kennewick Man also involves an important legal battle pending in the U.S. Supreme Court and is a good read for those of us intrigued by the earliest Americans."--Tony Hillerman, "New York"" Times "bestselling authorshow more
