The next tale journeys to Africa, as Nomsa of the People of the Earth weds into the People of the Sea. When her husband and sons are taken, she too must make a terrible bargain with Death and solve his riddles to find them again…though such bargains always have a catch.
After this, little Shelley tells of her and her mother’s escape from slavery and their meeting with the Red Lord as they call on the ancient blind god of their people and receive a singular gift.
It finishes with priestess Chloe Samarid tracking the Pathfinder in the Southern Sea of Agehera. Their civilization is ruled by “alien taskmasters,” but she challenges them and becomes a divine leader.
The collection focuses on race relations through much of American history, all infused with a twist of gothic fantasy. The “mystic madness” and spiritual, ineffable world beneath the everyday appears in each as innocents and children relate the frightening scenes that transform their worlds forever. Each faces great tests of courage and fortitude in which their very souls hang in the balance. Four short stories that are light but nonetheless enthralling and gripping.
