Book Description:

Adi and Honi journey to Southern Oklahoma to meet Honi’s Mekui’te tribe at the reservation where he grew up. Honi’s infectious excitement almost erases Adi’s apprehension at meeting his family, and she’s desperate to make a good impression.

When Adi is met with silent hostility that gets worse rather than better, she realizes there may be more to the initial resistance Honi had warned her to expect.

Honi is confused and hurt by his family’s reaction, and by Adi’s increasingly strange behavior. She’s claiming the spirit animals of his tribe are diseased and sickly, but they look just fine to him. On top of that, when Adi meets Honi’s ex, Nina, her jealousy gets way out of hand, and threatens to drive them apart.

While mysterious forces manipulate and distort their realities, can Honi and Adi join forces to figure out what is happening before it’s too late and they are separated forever?

Spirit Warrior – Excerpt, by Ella J. Smyth 

John called to his wife. “Nora? Did you make some coffee?”.
Adi and Nora turned at the same time as John continued, “You’ll have time for a cup of coffee, right?”
Honi nodded, although Adi could see he wasn’t keen. John boxed him lightly on the shoulder.
"I forgot. Nora, do you know where Judy keeps that disgusting tea Honi likes?"
Adi had to laugh at the relief on Honi’s face. They both disliked coffee and much preferred tea, although Honi could be convinced to drink latte macchiato or cappuccino, as long as there was at least fifty percent milk in the mix. And lots of sugar. And chocolate. Adi had no idea how he managed to drink these concoctions without weighing three-hundred pounds.
Soon they sat around the small square kitchen table. While the couple brought Honi up to date on the gossip in Heota, Adi looked around. The linoleum floor was scuffed, with bits missing in high-traffic areas. Everywhere she looked, it was obvious there was little money. The curry-colored telephone on the wall dated back to the sixties. Adi couldn’t remember when she had last seen this color and a ten-foot cable.
The two cats lay snuggled up to each other underneath the table, both fast asleep. Adi’s eyebrows as she stared at the sleeping creatures. This was very unusual. Spirit animals didn’t sleep unless their humans did. John and Nora didn’t look tired. Not tired enough to go to sleep, anyway. There were dark rings under John’s eyes, but the man was in his sixties. Adi didn’t know what he looked like usually. Maybe he was just… old?
By the time they were finished with their tea and the cookies that went with it, Honi was impatient to see his parents.
“They’ll be here any moment. They just had to run an errand,” John reassured him. He turned to Adi, and his eyes softened in the face of her obvious worry.
“Jim feels bad about last night. It’ll be fine."
He smiled at her. Adi nodded, wishing it were that simple.
