Overview

A gripping journey into the heart of Native American legend, "Beyond the Western Sun" follows the epic struggle of Whisper, a young female Cherokee apprentice, on a harrowing adventure into the Land of the Dead to save the captive son of Ian Diavya. Together they face insurmountable odds, conquer terrible demons, and in the process, find a strength and courage within themselves neither knew possible. What they don't know is that these early adventures are only tests, for to save Ian's son, they must also stop the evil-minded Raven-Eater from unleashing his Army of the Dead to destroy the living world.

As the Army of the Dead marches closer to the Western Sun, as Whisper leads them deeper into the Land of the Dead, and as the truth behind Cole's death is slowly revealed, Ian discovers that the fate of both worlds depends on his courage, his humility, and the life of his son.

An epic saga of hope, redemption, and undying love, "Beyond the Western Sun" is what all fantasy adventures must strive to be: a complex, intricate examination of human emotion set within the context of worlds known only in our imagination. And in this regard, "Beyond the Western Sun" is a stunning achievement. Melding fantasy and legend in an epic quest, the third novel of her young career signals the arrival of Kristina Circelli as a master storyteller. Creating the indelible character of Whisper, vividly portraying the worlds that she and Ian must traverse to accomplish their goal, and capturing their human frailties, hopes and fears with depth and touching sincerity, Circelli reminds us with stunning precision the greatness we are all capable of, and the heavy price our actions can rend.

    Though this book is very well written and even has a great story

    Though this book is very well written and even has a great story, I just couldn’t get into it.  I don’t have anything bad to say about the story itself or the writing; it just didn’t fit my personal interests.  I quit reading after getting through half the book.  I would still recommend this to others who are interested, it just wasn’t for me.

    Fantastic, Gripping Read!

    This is the kind of book that grips you from start to finish. As soon as I began reading, I felt transported to another world. I didn't leave that world until I finished the final page. I have two favorite genres- fantasy and self-discovery. To find a book in which an incredible, fantastic world is brought to life on paper and to have the characters in that world take such extraordinary journeys was heaven for me! I cannot wait to read the sequel!
