Beyond the Western Sun Paperback – December 19, 2010
About the Author
Kristina Circelli is the author of two published novels, "The Helping Hands" and "The Iron Fist: Legacy of the Helping Hands." A descendent of the Cherokee nation, Circelli holds both a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English from the University of North Florida. Her latest novel, "Beyond the Western Sun," is steeped in the spoken narratives of Native American lore, and is at once a gripping story of a father’s love and his search for redemption as well as a written record of a Nation’s belief system. Part adventure, part myth, and altogether riveting, the third novel from Kristina Circelli signifies the emergence of an important voice in Native American literature. From her extraordinary ability to vividly create heretofore-unknown worlds to her engaging prose, Circelli’s "Beyond the Western Sun" is a landmark novel from one of the freshest new voices in all of contemporary American fiction.

This book will not leave you with the warm-fuzzies. Our protagonists are traversing the Land of the Dead. There can't be much fun to be had in Limbo, but lessons will be taught on nature and our spiritual connectivity to all elements around us. The land is full of weird creepy crawlies and Native American totems bent on deceiving or capturing your soul. Gross, disturbing, and I loved every minute of it! Circelli's writing really took me to the Land of the Dead. She really captured the art of storytelling in true native fashion.
Another plus--her characters were not overly romanticized and gooey. They were disturbed with the actions of their lives and the choices they had made (or were made for them). There is a hunt for the true answer to the question, not what you want it to be or what others are expecting to hear. The honest truth with all the ugliness inside the beauty. Her main character Whisper has a dark side that terrifically reflects the evil struggling to dominate the good.
Now the rest of the series is $2.99 a piece; well priced for me to continue reading. At 4 stars for the first book, I look forward to what comes next.
