As the lambent light from the slumbering fire dances across the roof of the cave, a young girl wakes from a dream. Kec's dream tells her that her clan is in jeopardy, and that Mother Earth expects her to do something to save her people. A magic child will be sent to help her.Far away, Strong Branch, a powerful Shaman of his people, has his own dream. The Great Spirit sends him a warning about a future of conflict and killing.Kec's people are very simple, but they are strong and powerful enough to have survived the ice ages of Pleistocene Europe, by force, for over one-hundred-thousand years. Strong Branch's people are late comers from an alien world far to the South. They bring an advanced technology that allows them to utilize the environment in ways Kec's people never could.As the population of the aliens has grown over a period of more than twenty-thousand years, the stress on the environment has become critical. Kec and Strong Branch must play their parts in a microcosm of the greater struggle for survival. The conclusion of their struggle will establish a new story and a new history for each of their peoples.

It is 3289 when rumors of unusual people living in caves far from his land attract the attention of warrior leader Warlog. His shaman, Rayloc, fears the strangers are servants of evil determined to destroy his way of life. Meanwhile, Sotif, History Man of the Alliance between Earth People and Sun People, tries to guard his culture against changes that could induce Mother Earth to withdraw her blessings--while Warlog focuses on severing that alliance, which has lasted for hundreds of generations, by subjugating the Sun People and destroying the Earth People. Faced with this threat, Sotif races to find the Spirit Fire to help his people defeat Warlog. But the key to success lies in the hands of Tincolad, one of Warlog's warriors who has been captured by the Alliance. Now only time will tell if Sotif can persuade Tincolad to help find the Spirit Fire in time--as the fate of the Earth People hangs in the balance. The second book in a trilogy about the interaction between Neandertals and Cro-Magnons, Spirit Fire presents an epic adventure that sweeps across prehistoric Europe, Asia, and Alaska, as the man who invented war embarks on a quest to conquer the world.

The New Faery, born of the four-armed Old Faery and the wingless riders of the great moths, prepare to depart from the long home of the Color Faery. Gifted with the speaking mind of Mothkin and the six wings of the Old Faery, they go seeking a place of their own where they can be “a new people” who need never hear the life-giving Ring Chant of the Faery, which is, to them, a violent clamor of discordant sounds. In a deep place in the Secret Mountains they find a new home and intentionally deceive their offspring by leading them to believe that the New Faery have dwelt in the Vale of Summer for many generations. After their descendants have peopled the vales of the mountains and the Low Lands, they find that the young of these long-lived people are failing. Then the Elders bitterly concede that they need the wisdom of their long parted ancestors.
