Book 1, The Hoop of the Alekšu’in
A centuries-long stalemate endures over possession of a sentient world. In one corner stands a cabal of shamans; in the other, a colony of aliens whose bio-engineering experiment has gone amok… and in the middle, a youth who has been genetically altered to ‘Shape’ the elemental powers.
Tohwakeli doesn’t want this ability, and neither does his tribe. His own suppressed elemental heritage will lend control over what abilities the outlanders have triggered. It will also see him hounded as a potential weapon—not just by the invaders, but his own people.
