Review: Reign of the Nightmare Prince by Mike Phillips

4 I enjoyed most of the book, I did get lost and confused at times. Probably just me. I was thinking in ways its like when explores came to south america. Natives where killed and robbed of thier gold and jewels. Sacred places ruined. I saw in someone review they thought of Africa. Its amazing how same book hits different people different.
Rakam is on a journey traveling and learning about different groups trying to find what his path will be. He has the gift of sight. Those who have gifts train and then go on like a vision quest. He goes to see different animals that this one village use, but as he comes to it, it is completly destroyed. Even the rocks surrounding their fire pits is gone. He sees what happened in a vision. He heads for home to warn his people and finds village after village destroyed even their sacred places.
Rakam is bit by snake and he almost dies a riverdog saves him and brings him fish while he heals. After he realizes that his visions are gone but a new power has imerged.
He warns his people and shows them the armor they where that their arrows cant hurt. They flee to the marsh king to let others know of these enemys that kill and destroy everything and hope by joining can stop them somehow.
It is interesting story of natives having to fight for thier lands and beliefs.  Different groups having their traditions. Choosing good over evil. What fight is worth dying for.
I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.stars
