About the Author
In 1977, Sherry began studying the rich material in the Edgar Cayce Readings, eventually becoming writer and editor for the Minnesota Cayce organization's community newsletter, and fell in love with writing. Over the next thirty years, she studied spirituality and metaphysics, adding one healing modality after another to her resume, eventually working with a master spiritual healer and teacher, and learning the transformational, high frequency healing method she uses today. Some of the information she learned over this time has found its way into her writing beginning with Spirit Song, Cape of the Red Jaguar. Book Two in the Spirit Song series is now available: Seeds in the Blood.

SPIRIT SONG, CAPE Of THE RED JAGUAR is a fast-paced paranormal adventure in the Venezuelan rain forest. Given Sherry Janes' proclivities it is not surprising that this novel, in addition to being a well-molded adventure story, is also a study of the supernatural. For readers normally not inclined to seek books in this genre this novel is one to try the concepts at least once. The heroine could very well be Janes! Young Minnesotan anthropologist Christina searches the Venezuelan jungles for mysterious Sacred Cape of the Red Jaguar, is kidnapped, sold to suspicious tribal chief, is rescued by a doctor/shaman, and are thwarted in their escape by a volcanic eruption. Their flight leads to the discovery of a time and place misplaced Inca temple whose tunnels unveil deeper mysteries and prophecies and a mission that only they can share.
Janes writing style is propulsive, well conceived and paced, and allows time for the various sidebars of her story to develop so that the reader never feels lost in what could be a puzzling atmosphere. For lovers of the paranormal genre it is a winner. For those not attached to this level of thought this book is a fine introduction. Grady Harp, February 14
Being a fan of movies like “Raider of the Lost Ark,” with its exotic settings and ancient mysteries, I knew I had to read this first offering in the “Spirit Song” series. An adventure novel on the surface, this story unfolds into an entrancing and rousing love story. There’s a lot more here than the typical damsel-in-distress tale. Sherry Janes weaves all sorts of mysticism into Christina and Raphael’s journey, from time-travel to tribal sacrifice to sorcery (and aliens, maybe?). This is the first book by Janes I’ve had the pleasure to read, but I was struck by her writing—the locales and characters are vividly drawn and the mythical details are woven into a fast-paced, compelling plot.
Loved this book. I can’t wait to grab the next installment in the “Spirit Song” series!
What I mainly loved about this novel was the mix between tribal and modern life, especially in the dialogue. There would be conversations that discussed ancient traditions and shaman rituals, but then interrupted by swearing and mentions of blue jeans. This kept my interest and was a necessary reminder that this book takes place in contemporary times, as most often I associate jungle adventures with times of the past.
With the exciting adventure mixed with the perfect amount of romance (or a romance book mixed with the perfect amount of adventure, depending on your priorities), characters seem real and complex. The plot makes you learn bits about Rafael and Christina’s upbringings and roots, making me excited to read about their romance and their attempt to intertwine two drastically different cultures.
While it gets a bit repetitive while on the river as they try to overcome a series of obstacles to reach safety, most of it is dialogue that allows you to quickly get through scenes and chapters. Perfect entertaining novel that dives headfirst into love and culture.
