Colors and Ghosts
A Native American boy becomes the focus for magic's reentry into the world. A Spanish dowser chases her son's kidnapper through a magical Early America. A storm shaman hijacks the weather and delays the spring.
Colors and Ghosts contains Books 1–3 of The Red Wraith series (the first book of which was originally released in 2015 by Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing).
Book 1: The Red Wraith
As magic awakens in Early America, Naysin, a child of the Lepane nation, manifests talents that defile his tribe's harvest ceremony. His punishment is exile.
In the years that follow, Naysin's spirit fathers keep goading him into misusing his abilities. On the island of Bimshire, he 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 the Red Wraith, an indigenous monster who delights in butchering white innocents.
The infamy is well-earned, but that's not who he wants to be. And when he encounters a group of fellow magic users, Naysin realizes how he can set everything right.
Book 2: The Black Resurrection
Isaura's son has been kidnapped.
Worse, his kidnappers are taking him to Huancavelica, a Peruvian mercury mine so dangerous it's known as the "Mine of Death."
Her only ally is Amadi, a runaway slave haunted by guilt he refuses to explain.
Her only choice is to beat the kidnappers to Huancavelica and lay a trap … assuming she can survive the mine herself.
Book 3: The Amber Revenant
Naysin's power is waning.
The world knows him as the Red Wraith, an infamous shaman capable of eradicating plagues and ruining armies. But he spent the bulk of his magic atop the earthen pyramid of Saint's Summit. Now his mother is missing, and the Amber Revenant—another sorcerer with outsized potency—has hijacked the weather and delayed the spring. If Naysin doesn't act quickly enough ...
Then the Revenant will supplant the Wraith. And his mother will never escape her fate.
