About the Book

Dawn of the Shaman (Cait Ashwood)
Click to Read an Excerpt
It takes a blind man to see the truth.

Tozall should have died shortly after birth, thanks to the sightless blue eyes staring out of his cherubic face. His tribe has no use for disabled burdens, but the Rocs they hold sacred feel differently about the boy. Remanded into the care of the tribe's shaman, his future is far from assured.

His affinity with the Espiriti, the guardian spirits of the tribes, earns him not only the enmity of his own chieftain, Dhurc, but the jealousy of shamans from rival tribes. When his mentor is incapacitated, there's no one left to defend him when Dhurc leads the troublesome upstart into the wilderness and abandons him in the dead of winter.

Will Tozall's spirit friends be enough to save him, or will he die as unwanted as he was born?
