A Heart Divided.... Will Lansa figured that spending his senior year in Arizona, on the reservation with his Hopi police chief father, far away from Aspen and his friends-and his wealthy white mother-would be like living in a monastery. Boring, yes, but also a time for cleansing and reflection; a time to experience the culture of his father and grandfather, and reconcile his own divided nature. Who is Double Heart? Will's decision to write about Hopi witches for a high school term paper sets off a chain reaction of violence and murder. A legendary sorcerer, with the power to enslave the minds of others and even transform into a wolf, now seeks to destroy Will, body and soul. Haunted by visions of tribal Kachina spirits, surrounded by betrayal and death, Will races headlong toward a final confrontation with the malevolent force that has controlled his destiny...a powerful witch, known as.... DOUBLE HEART
Now we jump ahead in time in the fourth book in the series. Will Lansa is no longer a teen struggling with his identity, but a 28-year-old anthropology prof in Colorado who is about to step into the adventure of his life....
An ancient Hopi prophecy…the end of the Fourth World … a mysterious ruin…and a window between worlds. Anthropologist Will Lansa grew up as a privileged child in Aspen, Colorado, but spent summers on the Hopi reservation, where his father was chief of police. Now Lansa grudgingly returns to his roots on the reservation after receiving a baffling message from Vina Lansa, his aged grandmother. Vina sends him on the quest of a lifetime-- to find Pahana, the Hopi’s returned savior. But Will soon encounters strange and disturbing events, and becomes a suspect in a murder. Pursued by FBI agent Ellie Fletcher, the two find themselves literally lost in another world, unable to get home, and hunted by Masau’u, the manifestation of the god of death and the Underworld.
