Sobre o livro
Bone Arrow follows Sunktokeca, warrior and son to a god as he struggles to accept his true identity and withstand the machinations of the gods, his kin and orchestrators of his fate.
Sunktokeca’s ordinary life is shattered when his dormant magic flares and, feared by his People, he is banished from the secluded mountain homelands of his adopted People. Beneath a prophesied blood moon, Ate charges Sunktokeca to defeat Ska-Sicanagi, an ancient and vengeful spirit before it destroys Unci-Makha, the goddess and embodiment of the land.
Sunktokeca is accompanied on the quest by Mastinca, his closest friend and Wazichan, a formidable female warrior. The final member of the company is Yalse, Sunktokeca’s true kin and the infamous Trickster god.
Guided by Yalse, Sunktokeca seeks a bone arrow, a weapon made by a tainted magic, only given power by the taking of a life. In the winter darkness of a frozen land, Sunktokeca is given a terrible choice if he is to destroy Ska-Sicanagi. To preserve the land and all dependent upon it, Sunktokeca needs the bone arrow and a life to give it power. As the final battle with Ska-Sicanagi draws closer, Sunktokeca must decide his own and his companions’ fate as he balances life and death in his hands.
