Magic awakens in Early America. The Red Wraith is born.
Cast into exile by his tribe for being spawn of human and spirit, Naysin is lost in a world of change as pale men from the sea arrive to plunder the riches of the New World. Guided only by the devious facets of his spirit father, Naysin has no choice but to master his powers to survive the destruction of his people. But the nature of those talents is both light and dark.
And so the legend of the Red Wraith begins.
On the island of Bimshire, Naysin inspires a slave rebellion before abandoning it; near his former home, he marches European settlers to their deaths; and in the forests of Edgeland, he ends a battle by massacring both sides. Such acts cause much of the New World to see him as an indigenous monster who delights in butchering white innocents. The infamy is well-earned, but when Naysin encounters a group of fellow magic-users, he realizes he may yet have a chance to set things right.
He just has to conquer the only thing that ensures his survival: the dual facets of his father.
About the Author:
Nick Wisseman lives in Bear Lake, Michigan with his wife, daughter, fifty cats, twenty horses, and ten dogs. (Okay, so there are actually ten times less pets than that, but most days it feels like more.) He's not quite sure why he loves writing twisted fiction, but there's no stopping the weirdness once he's in front of a computer. [MORE]
"The adventure of a lifetime! This story has everything - fact, fiction, fantasy - if you want to read a book that is hard to put down, this is it. The story starts out with a young boy, and follows him through adulthood, from his original peoples' village, to outcast, to slavery on a sugar plantation, to escape, walking on water, scaling mountains, humans of all colours and languages, shamans and gods - whatever you want, you'll find it in this book." - Judy Herscovitch
