When sixteen-year-old Akuleh’s abusive stepmother blames him for the deaths of his father and a brother, he flees his shamanic society on a world called Tempest and lies about his age to join the military. He hopes the destiny he believes was imposed on him at his birth, of becoming Machitew, the god of death, will impact only the enemy, not people he cares for.
Through The Seventh Shaman series, Akuleh (aka Ku) braves the galaxy’s meanest instructor pilot, loses and finds love, and battles not only an enemy who threatens his homeworld’s survival, but also Machitew, who wants his soul. Then, in an unexpected vision quest, his true destiny is revealed. Ku learns that even his troubled life has great worth and a divine purpose.
