The fourth novel in North America's Forgotten Past Cahokian story cycle, Star Path is an evocative tale about America’s greatest pre-Columbian city by New York Times bestselling authors W. Michael and Kathleen O’Neal Gear
How do you say no to a god?
The god incarnate, Morning Star, sets his human sister Night Shadow Star and her slave Fire Cat on a dangerous journey to the edge of their world. For their brother, Walking Smoke, still lives…and is a madman who is convinced that he is the true deity destined to rule Cahokia.
Night Shadow Star has her own agenda; the Underworld Lord Piasa has promised that if she and Fire Cat succeed with his agenda, they might become nameless, clanless, and worthless. And thus free.
But the treacherous Tenasee River that they must travel holds its own perils. And at the end of the journey, Walking Smoke prepares to spring his trap.
Star Path, the fourth book in the Gears’ People of Cahokia series, provides us with a rare look into the mystical underpinnings of Native American culture and the founding of Mississippian civilization.
