In Me Series

Top

The In Me series is about Sora, the leader of the Shadow Rock Clan of the Black Falcon Nation. The action begins with a game to decide whether or not the clan will go to war, and rapidly progresses into a tantalizing expose of Machiavellian intrigue, political alliances, and lust among the aboriginal peoples of what is now the Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological Site in Florida. Gear’s literary style frequently borders on the pedantic, as she crams a wealth of archaeological and anthropological detail into the tale of one woman’s obsession with her former husband and her own power, and the ending is rather enigmatic, but fans of prehistoric epic adventures will be satisfied.
