Rchief and the warrior woman he may never possess are disgusted by their Chief's lust for tribute Now even the gods have turned their faces closing the underworld to the seers If the gods have abandone The Gear's are a husband wife team who write books about the prehistoric first peoples of North America There are several books in the series but it isn't mandatory that you read them in order Sure there are a few details that may leave you confused if you haven't read the others but the majority of the story is original and separate from the rest People of the River is considered the fourth book in this seriesNightshade is considered a powerful Dreamer She has been ever since she was stolen from her peoples and made a part of the River People's community But she and the main leader have never gotten along; there's something not uite right about him and he seeks to harness her power and dominate her Add in a drought that is killing off the people and someone has angered the spirits and only Nightshade and unknown woman are going to be able to put it right againThe theme of this book was crazy There were uite a few people who just weren't right in this book and while some of them were good and harmless there was a bad kind of crazy in this book and it was sinister I was eagerly waiting to see what would happen when the Leader would have one of his childish fits and demand everything go his way because you knew it would never mean anything good And then there was Wanderer who was crazy too but in such an endearing way that he was charmingI'd never really realized how complex the River people were They almost seemed Aztec in traditions and living style I was pleased to see that a bit of their culture was mentioned in this book and that it wasn't all mysticism although there was a lot of that as well It seems that Dreamers and special spiritual uests are always going to be a part of these booksThis was an interesting book although a little fast paced I do think the bad guy is what made this one engagingPeople of the RiverCopyright 1992400 pagesReview by M Reynard 2014More of my reviews can be found at wwwifithaswordsblogspotcom

People of the RiverA gripping new saga of pre historic America that takes us to the Mississippi Valley and the tribe known as the Mound builders It is a time of troubles In Cahokia the corn crop is failing again and a wa Despite enjoying historical fiction Native American history and in particular the region of Cahokia this was a painfully uninteresting bookNot entirely sure why it couldn't hold my interest I think I might have lost interest due to the perspective switching for such long periods of time Also much of the book didn't have much climax to it and the writing was fairly dryTowards the end the action picked up but the final drama seemed to come out of nowhere There was a slight setup but it really just felt forced The love story that exploded at the end was also unexpected and unexplainedThe book tried to depict a society in turmoil due to both internal and external circumstances but mostly just seemed to tell the story of a power mad dictatorI was impressed by the handling of the male to female character He was married to a female warrior and handled with dignity Their marriage and relationship was touching and was a nice touch in an otherwise fairly predictable book
