Tali Nohkati, a young boy, is the sole survivor of a fire. He is watched over by Coyote and Moon, creators of the world, as he grows into an adult and finds a tribe to belong to. Along the way he meets and is helped by a selection of animals.

This is an interesting tale, told in a mythic style. I liked that it was different to the types of books I usually read, with the talking animals and epic journey, told in a sweeping way rather than with heavy detail. The downside to this was that I didnt

Good story.

I enjoyed this story more than I thought I would. It gives you all the feels a good book should.

This book is written in a creation myth style, full of vivid imagery and wonder though I struggled to figure out whereabouts in a creation timeline the story takes place - there seems to be a lot of humans about for the second generation!

The main character, Tali, embarks on an epic journey and learns important lessons from the animals he meets along the way as he makes his way towards a human settlement. The characters in this book are very distant so it's hard to build more than a passing

3/5 stars. I recieved this book as an eARC throught NetGalley for an honest review. This book sounded so interesting as it's about an Indigenous main character. But it was confusing. Very very confusing, I'm not sure if something got lost in the translation, but for the life of me I couldn't figure out where the story was set until the last few chapters of the book, as it mentioned Macaws and Jaguars. I did like the fact that there were different animals helping the main character along his ...more

Go on a journey from birth to becoming an elder. Filled with wonders and promise, each life stage is filled with ups and downs. Great fortune always seems to be just showering the footsteps at a most vulnerable times. Magnificent and temporary guides are gifted then. Faith and hope win the day.

An easy to read, wonderful tale with beautifully painted landscapes, thrills and page turning adventures. A delightful read for all ages.

A quick, yet enjoyable, mythological read about the first people, and a child's journey into adulthood/life with the assistance of animal mentors. Told in the fashion of the Native American folklore.

A fascinating story. The ending was a bit sudden. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a strong tale from the heart.

I absolutely loved this quick read. The themes and narration all reminded me of the native folktales my parents used to read to me when I was younger. Tali Nohkati's journey to finding a tribe is a heart-warming tale about resilience, friendship, and compassion.

Thank you to Koza Belleli, Black Rose Writing, and Netgalley for providing a digital copy for me to review. As always, all opinions are my own.
