Dear Ms. Wright: I am writing in reference to the journal we discussed. The one I discovered hidden among my Great Uncle's belongings. After delving into its contents and knowing your interest in the orphic and esoteric, I knew you would be intrigued by what I discovered. I have transcribed a portion of the journal, but the contents being what they are, will await your Dear Ms. Wright: I am writing in reference to the journal we discussed. The one I discovered hidden among my Great Uncle's belongings. After delving into its contents and knowing your interest in the orphic and esoteric, I knew you would be intrigued by what I discovered. I have transcribed a portion of the journal, but the contents being what they are, will await your response before I part with the greater portion. It contains ideas that are better left alone if you have not the time nor inclination to pursue the full endeavor of delving into this particular mystery. That being said here is the portion I wish for you to see: September 15, 1986 I saw the man again to-day. Seven Crow he is called. It is astounding to me that he looks virtually the same as he did on that occasion forty years ago when we met. I know this to be true because the events surrounding that meeting have been indelibly imprinted upon my mind. I don't know by what means he has kept his youth, but his strong native features and work hardened physique are undimmed by the passing years. It is surely the work of the native shamanism practiced upon him that has kept him so. I do not know if he saw me, but I endeavored to conceal myself from his knowledge and attention. I feel as though he did not see me, for had he I am sure he would not have let me live. It was imperative for me to know that he was still confined in that hellish prison; whatever confinement means for one such as he. It worries me that all of our years of patience and preparation will be undermined should Keezie somehow cross paths with this man. He has wrecked our past stratagem irreparably and perpetrated much damage to our cause. There are things I long to tell the girl, but know that it is better she find them out for herself. The clues are there if she is clever enough to follow them. Her life will be hard once the forces in play pull her into their maelstrom. I hope I have prepared her well enough as she is the only one that can hope to control the device. Either that or she will die. I will write more as events unfold... Urban Fantasy with a Native American Twist. After spending forty years in prison Eli Seven Crow is weak and lacking the power of his former self. When he is herded headlong into a maelstrom designed to steal his people’s most ancient secrets, his life and the one woman in two hundred years that he might be able to love he must find a way to save himself, or all life will be consumed by the otherworldly evil that his family has worked to defeat since the First People set foot on Mother Earth.

    I really enjoyed reading Shadow Souls, which is book 1 in The Mal' Ak Cycle. You follow Eli on a journey of protecting the world with his abilities and resources and Keezie who finds some interesting information that she has to work out what it means. As the plot builds you gradually get to understand what is happening around Eli and the plot line follows a logical approach. It was easy to keep up with the different sub plots, as it moved around the story and keeps you interested throughout the I really enjoyed reading Shadow Souls, which is book 1 in The Mal' Ak Cycle.

As the plot builds you gradually get to understand what is happening around Eli and the plot line follows a logical approach. It was easy to keep up with the different sub plots, as it moved around the story and keeps you interested throughout the journey. My only slight observation with the writing was that occasionally the author used the wrong grammar (for example using she instead of they or placing both after one another), but you can easily correct as you are reading through and this did not take away from the enjoyment of reading the book. Will definitely be checking out the second book soon. Please note, I was lucky enough to win this book through a Goodreads giveaway, but this is my honest review of the book.

    Full disclosure, I personally know this author. I don't think that affects my perception of the book too much, but to say it has no effect would probably be disingenuous. The book itself is a rather eclectic mix of mythological​ backdrops that made it interesting to me. I realized that although I have a pretty clear understanding of the basic elements of European folklore, I am not even a little bit knowledgeable about similar themes in American heritage.

I don't think that affects my perception of the book too much, but to say it has no effect would probably be disingenuous. The book itself is a rather eclectic mix of mythological​ backdrops that made it interesting to me. I realized that although I have a pretty clear understanding of the basic elements of European folklore, I am not even a little bit knowledgeable about similar themes in American heritage. I had to look up a lot of words, but it was interesting to learn about the mythology of Native Americans, with a little bit of Aztec, Welsh, and Cajun legends thrown in. But this melting pot never felt forced to me, it blended well. I am a bit of a worldbuilding geek, and thus world definitely felt interesting. I will note that the prose felt like it could use a little polishing. There were some places where the sentence construction made me have to slow down and think twice about the meaning before it became clear what was being said. That being said, the story in itself was compelling. I cared about the characters, and genuinely wanted to follow along with them. I also enjoyed the pacing, which was not too frantic without ever feeling slow. There was a natural ebb and flow in the action that allowed for catching my breath, so to speak, before plunging right into the next sequence. I look forward to the next book.

    Got it on a 99 cent deal I got it on a deal and thought it looked good but if it wasn't no real loss. Wow was i pleasantly surprised. It is a page turned with some very good action and characters. The first book left me ready to dive right into the second.

    If you enjoy a contemporary setting melded in folklore, insane plot twist and awesome Fantasy novel (kinda Native American folklore but not really) you need to read “Shadow Souls” (The Mal’Ak Cycle Book 1) by Christopher Nooner.

Chapter 48 my mind is crazy...I literally started yelling out loud “What?! No!!! No way!! How could it be?!!” Love this book and the surprise ending!!! The beginning of the book spans several characters, events, and locations, to set the backstory, but quickly all paths begin to cross to tell an adventurous action packed lore that includes some quite chilling Native American spirits, creatures, demons, etc. The story takes place in many Arkansas locations; Cummins State Farm, delta swamp, Hendrix College, Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park. Great read for Young Adults.
