Christopher Columbus was not yet born and unbeknownst to any European, the massive Native American city of Cahokia was bursting at its seams with a population that rivaled the population of London. Ruled by his master, the ancient vampire entity of the Forbidden Tome, Lethal Assumed and Treasons Truth finds himself as chieftain of this very city.

The tale of Kakeobuk, wise chieftain of the Mississippian Indian Mound Builders, is a lusty story of intrigue, intimate acts and emotions and of the ultimate disappearance of one and all from the face of the earth in Cahokia.

The issues that the characters deal with are often huge and overwhelming. Should young virgin Indian maidens be sacrificed to their Gods as has been the perpetual tradition? Or should this cruel bloodletting to unseen supernatural beings be stopped?

What causes the actual collapse of the Mound Builders capital of Cahokia? Is it angry gods? Is it catastrophic natural disasters or climate change? Or is it overworking of the land and its resources. What truly would cause the total emptying and disappearance of a once thriving Indian metropolis?

The drumbeat of the gods is ever-present here. Listen to these sounds and allow them to captivate you.

Then, with a rush, let this tale sink its teeth into you.

About the author (2012)

Jeffrey Underwood graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in psychology. Though he has practiced as a Registered Nurse for many years, he comes from a family of published authors. His first published work was The Forbidden Tome; Hansel and Gretel’s True Tale. His second was entitled Lethal Assumed; Lost Tome Found. This is his fourth effort at writing a tome and his second effort at true historical fiction. He currently resides in Mountlake Terrace, Washington, a suburb of Seattle and again hopes that those who read this fourth offering enjoy the time spent.

Kate Taylor collaborated with Jeffrey Underwood on a prior novel entitled Treason’s Truth; Mac Alpin’s Scotland. This present collaboration is her second with Jeffrey. This book is entitled Eagle’s Eclipse; America Before Columbus. Kate is nationally certified as an Activities Director. While she has worked in healthcare for many years and won awards for her service there, she is also talented in the world of watercolor and enjoys playing the piano. This work is her third serious effort at writing as her first work is entitled The Pink Eraser. She has contributed to books in the Activities profession. They say that no one lives in New Hampshire, but Kate does, and she has much in the way of writing to share. She hopes that all who read this tale of fiction and much fact will want for more.

Jeff and Kate met online and found that their collaborative interests meshed splendidly and this novel is the second example of that blending of gusto for writing that they certainly both have.
