In addition to these realistic details, the world building and the nature of the magic are also thorough, nicely developed, internally consistent, and unique. The system of magic as described in the book seems unlike any I've read before, and as the character's skills progress along with his knowledge of how to use his abilities, we feel like we are learning right along with him. His abilities seem very founded in nature, which fits the themes and setting of the book. This unfolding of the reader's knowledge along with the character's provides an overarching flow to the book and the plot. Not too much is revealed in full up front, which keeps the book interesting and unpredictable.
Also stellar are the plot twists and changes, as the plot elements were frequently a surprise (in a pleasant way). The book is able to the character and the world without making it overly obvious where the story is going, and there are various parts to the protagonist's story that highlight his development and different areas of his story. As I am only partway through the book, I am excited to get back in to discover what will happen next.
The introductory chapter was not my favorite, as there was quite a bit of flashback that seemed confusing. This was done on purpose, I'm sure, to highlight the mystery of the story and get us intrigued right away and set the mood, but for me, as I wasn't already invested in the character, I couldn't get into it. For me, the book really took off with chapter 2. All in all, a very enjoyable read.
The first half of the book felt like wandering as Naysin traveled around, met different kinds of people, did some heroic and some selfish things. He also spends time trying to figure out his magical powers and trying to decide if he can trust the spirit fathers who gave them to him.
The second half, though, draws all that seemingly aimless wandering together as Naysin becomes the focal point for the epic climax which involves all of the people and stories he met earlier, and coming to terms with his own powers.
Wisseman’s does an excellent job of immersing us in the Native American landscape. My strongest memories of the book involve the feel of the world that Naysin inhabits, the feel of the magic and the connection he has to the world around him.
A good read, especially for those with an interest in Native American history.
