In this book the main characters from “Beyond the Great River”, Okwaho and Kentika are now living in the Onondaga village, the home of Okwaho. They move forward and show the maturity, growth, and struggles they experience in their lives together. We also see the struggles of Ganayeda and his position in the Five Iroquois Nations.
As the book closes you can see the strength of the two brothers and their father, Tekeni, the Peacekeeper. It leaves you with the feeling that each warrior has his own path and mission to follow. One also must remember their mother, Seketa and her great ability as Clan Mother who takes care of all the household duties that enable these warriors to fulfill their missions. It feels like coming home to once again be reunited with some of the members of "The Peacemaker Series". The blending of the two series is a masterful accomplishment that could only be done by this outstanding author.
With her wonderful writing ability, Zoe Saadia, uses the most colorful of words to bring to life these incredible characters and makes you feel as if you are actually in the lands of these historic people. The story holds you through each page and makes you anxious for another book in the series to see what each person will do and where they will travel.
Zoe has brought forth the connection and mission of the Peacemaker from the “Peacemaker Series” into a new and important struggle of the “Peacekeeper”. In the story another main character is Okawaho’s older brother Ganayega and his own struggles and position in the Five Iroquois Nation.
As the book closes you can see the strength of the two brothers and their father the Peacekeeper. Each leaves you with the feeling that each has their own path and mission to follow. The story holds you through each page and makes one anxious for the next book to see what and where each person will do and travel.
Another Great Job Zoe.
The war chief, who has led the people for decades, suddenly finds his wisdom questioned, even by those closest to him. The war chief promotes peace with the Crooked Tongues on the other side of the great river, while most his people believe war is inevitable with the "savages". When his enemies plot against him, and his own son and friends question desire to negotiate peace with the Crooked Tongues, the war chief rises to the occasion.
Another story line follows a new and unusual female. An atypical girl who was misunderstood in her own tribe, she finds herself constantly at odds with many of the women in her new longhouse. Even though she proves quite gifted in many ways, most the women in the new tribe view her as a "beast" or "savage".
The Foreigner is well-written, full of historical references, and does a marvelous job of challenging the human instinct to demonize our enemies or those people we do not understand. Looking forward to book three in the series!
