Publisher's Summary

They knew us before we began to walk upright. Shamans called them guardians, mythmakers called them tricksters, pagans called them gods, churchmen called them demons, folklorists called them shape-shifters. They've obligingly taken any role we've assigned them, and, while needing nothing from us, have accepted whatever we thought was their due? love, hate, fear, worship, condemnation, neglect, oblivion. Even in modern times, when their existence is doubted or denied, they continue to extend invitations to those who would travel a different road, a road not found on any of our cultural maps. But now, perceiving us as a threat to life itself, they issue their invitations with a dark purpose of their own.

In this dazzling metaphysical thriller, four who put themselves in the hands of these all-but-forgotten Others venture across a sinister American landscape hidden from normal view, finding their way to interlocking destinies of death, terror, transcendental rapture, and shattering enlightenment.

    "Eye oropening"

    This book is not for the close minded, nor for the extremely religious. It will set your mind on fire, though.

    "Not what I expected"

    Very different from I, Ishmael. But, nonetheless, I was captivated. Sometimes you want to be captivated in a specific way and if I'd walked into this reading hoping for known territory, I'd have been very disappointed. Instead, mind open, it was a lovely vacation from your typical read and powerful in its effect on my day to day musing. Hope you enjoy.

    "Narrator Doesn't Always Know How to Pronounce Words"

    Not a huge problem hut I find it distracting, and wonder if narrator's rehearse with assistance. I've found this with other books except those read by more accomplished actors. Performance in an audio format should be more consistently fluent, and that includes pronunciation. Ok story, but not mind blowing-- which is what I was hoping for.
