"Fantastic Native American Story!"
As the tribe's Berdache, Lizard's life is lonely. Being
able to take the place of either man or woman, he fits in
neither world. He lives in his hut alone, save for the
sometimes company of a dog. When Red Wolf returns from a
hunting trip, he finds another man in his wife's home. So
he takes his kill to his best friend, Lizard, in return
for a meal. Naturally, he's off to the lodge of the slave
maidens for some sport before he eats.
The woman Red Wolf chooses, Born in Moonlight, or Moon,
tries her best with Red Wolf, but he's unresponsive, so
she talks him into going for a walk. Moon begins asking
Red Wolf some leading questions and he begins questioning
his sexuality. That evening, Red Wolf talks to the
Berdache about his problems. Secretly, Lizard has always
wanted Red Wolf but never dared to dream his wishes would
Is Red Wolf destined to become Berdache? Will Lizard ever
be able to live his fantasies with Red Wolf? How does Moon
fit in all this?
BERDACHE is an interesting look into Native American life
and beliefs. Lena Austin has done a wonderful job of
bringing this to life in her story. I really enjoyed
the "spirit walks" and all the different animal spirits
and what they represent. The way Red Wolf saved face is
one of my favorite parts of this story. I love the way all
three individuals are very strong and compliment each
other. If you enjoy a Native American tale filled with hot
sex and Shamanism, this one must be on your TBR list!
