The Summoning God
The Summoning God By: Kathleen O¿Neal Gear and Michael Gear Utterly interesting story about the past of an Indian Tribe called the katsinas. Finding for the truth of what is trying to get ride of them, or even yet kill them for their beliefs. A murder of mystery and belief through the eyes of one brave war chief called Browser. He could only find what wanted him or be haunted. The truth for him is more painstaking for the others. While it also goes to the future it reveals what they find almost similar ways in archaeology. What they find is how the killer uses a method to kill more than horrifying way possible imagined. I love how War Chief Browser fond out the killer was closer than he imagined from his tribe. He also found a bloody place were their were headless body¿s all over the kiva floor. Also the witch called ¿Two Hearts¿ how trap¿s souls in a jar and puts a hole in the back of the Head. Darkness prevails this world or Two Hearts. The crazy tribal leader who has solved crimes before know who the killer is.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I have read many of the Gears books and have loved everyone of them!!! Their stories blend beautifully but you don't need to read them all to understand the storyline. But it is worth it to read them all anyways..Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In the thirteenth century, the site today known as Pueblo Animos was called Longtrail Village. Its residents converted to the new Katsina religion. Times were harsh as war and pestilence swept across the Anasazi people forcing bands to merge into large numbers for safety. <P>Twenty-first century archeologist Dusty Stewart and physical anthropologist Maureen Cole explore the untouched Pueblo Animos. They discover a massacre of at least forty children under the age of six, the skinning of females, and some evidence of cannibalism. The empathic Dusty feels the past horrors that have engulfed this sight. <P>In 1263, enemies attack the village. Browser, war chief of the Katsina, desperately wants to save his people, but wonders if witches are involved. As the murderers become bolder, Browser realizes that victory today only delays the inevitable decimation of his people. <P>Maureen concludes that the evil of the past is influencing Dusty. She steps outside the comfort of science to seek help from a local expert, a shaman. As past and present meet, Maureen and Dusty will be freed from the chains that bind them. <P>Chapters fluidly alternate between the past and the present, but the Gears manage to maintain a sense of continuity in the story line. That enables THE SUMMONING GOD to turn into a fascinating reading experience. The everyday details of the Anasazi culture seem genuine and add to the overall historical subplot. The relationship between Dusty and Maureen is an intriguing blend of distrust, unwanted attraction, and passion (more often with the sight than with each other). Though not easily categorized, fans that want something different will fully relish this tale. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
