Overview

Magic awakens in early America. The Red Wraith is born.

Cast into exile by his tribe for being spawn of human and spirit, Naysin is lost in a world of change as pale men from the sea arrive to plunder the riches of the New World. Guided only by the devious facets of his spirit father, Naysin has no choice but to master his powers to survive the destruction of his people. But the nature of those talents is both light and dark.

And so the legend of the Red Wraith begins.

On the island of Bimshire, Naysin inspires a slave rebellion before abandoning it; near his former home, he marches European settlers to their deaths; and in the forests of Edgeland, he ends a battle by massacring both sides. Such acts cause much of the New World to see him as an indigenous monster who delights in butchering white innocents. The infamy is well-earned, but when Naysin encounters a group of fellow magic-users, he realizes he may yet have a chance to set things right.

He just has to conquer the only thing that ensures his survival: the dual facets of his father.
--
An intriguing coming of age fantasy novel set in early American history, The Red Wraith will appeal to older young adult readers and fans of Sabaa Tahir's 'An Ember in the Ashes' and Jacqueline Carey's 'Kushiel's Legacy' series.

Nick Wisseman lives in Bear Lake, Michigan with his wife, daughter, fifty cats, twenty horses, and ten dogs. (Okay, so there are actually ten times less pets than that, but most days it feels like more.) He's not quite sure why he loves writing twisted fiction, but there's no stopping the weirdness once he's in front of a computer.

This book was written about a young Indian man named Naysin who was the offspring of human and spirit. Having been branded and exiled from his people, Naysin was forced to strike out on his own and contend with the dueling powers inside himself as he searched for the meaning of his existence. This was the story of Naysin’s awakening to a higher calling and predestined life purpose. The Red Wraith was a fantasy book with some history woven into it. The writer expounded on the main character’s plight and developed the story around his situation. Therefore, it had huge doses of fiction and fantasy…which is a good thing because I love both! If you are also a fantasy fanatic, this one’s definitely for you! -Diamante Lavendar, author of Breaking The Silence
