Ehane Freeman is a Native American witch who is obsessed with his family’s turbulent past. He is a descendant of Sassascus, the sachem of the Pequot tribe. In the Freeman family, it is the firstborn male who becomes the guardian of the coveted Teetonki zeal chest, their most secrete heirloom, which holds generations of magical tomes. Ehane doesn’t feel his older brother is capable of protecting the chest.
Ehane stole the chest and sought help from his friends. Together they conjured a spell to bring them to his great ancestor, Sassascus. The problem was that Sassascus lived in 17th century Connecticut. Ehane brought them to a point in time just before the Mystic Massacre. One of the darkest times in Connecticut’s history, certainly not a place for three 21st century men.
Dohate traveled back with his friends to pursue Ehane. While in the past, the friends wrestle with the ethical ramifications of screwing with time. They turned on each other and went their own way. Two longtime enemies found they have to work together to thwart the powerful witch who lived in Fort Saybrook. The men discover they work together well, and that had things in common. They found themselves falling in love with each other.
Their actions in the past derailed history to the point of preventing the Pequot war from happening. The men have to find a way to come together again. It will take nothing less than them all working together to restore the original course of history.
Excerpt:

“Okay, getting back to the Mystic massacre,” Dale inquired. “Exactly what date did you send us back to?”

“I don’t know.” Ehane said flippantly. “Why don’t we check the calendar hanging on the tree?” Ehane realized that it would have been smarter to pick an exact date to come back to. The loud snap of a twig caused all three of them to turn quickly in the direction of the two men who approached them.

Two white men stood with muskets in hand. The men were dressed as Pilgrims. Even in the heat and humidity, they were dressed, from head to toe, in somber colored linen clothes. Both men wore conical crowned hats rounded at the top with wide brims. They wore their sweat-soaked hats leaning a bit crooked on their heads. Their clothes were damp with perspiration, and the men reeked of sweat.

“Greetings to thee strangers, art thou lost?” The taller man asked. “Thou should wander naught outside the protection of Fort Saybrook.”

“Whither art thou weapons? Surely thou dost travel naught unarmed? These woods art infested with.” The Puritan fell silent after a subtle glance in Ehane’s direction. No doubt, he was going to use a derogatory term for American Indians.

Ehane believed he could emulate their manner of speech. “We hath come from out of the wilderness. Today’s march twas nearly 10 miles. We art traders from the south. I’m Ehane Freeman, tis Dale, and Jared Mason.” He addressed the man dressed in the brownish maroon breeches.

“Greetings to thee, I am Captain John Brewster, tis Captain John Oldham. Tis a queer name for an Indian. Which tribe art thou from?” Brewster, the taller man, asked Ehane.

“The Pequot’s,” Ehane told Brewster proudly.

“I hath traded with the Pequot’s on occasion. Thine manner of speech is vexing. Tis, unlike any Indian I hath foregathered.” Brewster said. Ehane could tell the man was sizing him up. He caught the slight nod Brewster gave Oldham, who returned the gesture with the slightest shake of his head in agreement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sibling Rivalry and Time Travel

Like real life the distribution of an Estate tends to create sibling rivalry, this time that leads to time travel. While back in time the brothers rediscover their lost boyhood relationship and some of their friends find love and acceptance. The web of fantasy and historical fiction leads the reader on a path to adventure that ends with a change to the timeline with joyful results for the hero's. A great sequel to The Guardian. I can't wait for the third in the series.
