An alien ship ripped through the skies of New York City in the year 1827. Krutt left Junn and Anad for dead on the ship after going renegade and attempting to kill them both. But unknown to Krutt, Junn survived the crash and is out for revenge. They are both of the Telkotian race, which shares similarities in physical appearance with humans but is more mentally advanced. Telkotians have the ability to communicate mentally and can even hypnotize humans. Krutt plans to use this power to avenge the Indians for the atrocities done to them by white settlers, while Junn acts to stop him. Kenneth Ward's depiction of the Native American culture and the post-colonial period make Thunderhawk a colorful and satisfying read.
I am reminded of my most cherished books when I read a book I really like; Thunderhawk gave me a beautiful sensation that automatically classifies it as a favorite. I love the horseback rides, the battles fought with arrows and spears, and the journey across America to hunt down a murderous villain. Kenneth Ward writes a stunning science-fiction tale with a tasteful blend of action, history, and adventure. The shifts in perspectives and the rich character development provided me with an engaging reading experience. A few of the themes explored are friendship, genocide, sexual abuse, divinity, loss, justice, and mental disorder. I recommend Thunderhawk to anyone that enjoys a good story because I certainly believe it's a book that would appeal to fans of any genre.
