Spirited by Nancy Holder

Book Description

War. Rage. Magic. Love. In May 1756 war is formally declared between the British and the French. During this highly dangerous time, Isabella Sevens is travelling with her father to the British stronghold Fort William Henry. In the forest, Wusamequin, the young and handsome medicine man, looks to avenge the death of his wife and child at the hands of British soldiers. When Wusamequin spots Isabella and her father, he alerts his warriors to capture them. But Wusamequin is quite taken with how bravely Isabella battles. He orders the warriors to spare her and her tfather, and they are dragged back to their village. However, many members of the Mohican tribe still want them to be killed. In a desperate plea to Wusamequin, Isabella vows to stay as his hostage if he lets her father go.

US Kirkus Review » Holder's colonial "captured-by-Indians" romance is thoroughly dispiriting. She bills it as an homage to Last of the Mohicans (the book and the movie), and as a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, suggesting that the hero's "Indianess" is a disfiguring spell. (Of course, the heroine finds that "His profile was rather . . . noble, actually.") Replete with "dark eyes" that "gleam" and women who scream a lot, the story sticks consistently to the bestial theme. Holder has combined cultural elements of several Indian nations, ending up with an unrecognizable mishmash. Her Makiawisug ("Little People" of Mohegan stories) are Shakespearean Tinkerbells, and her "shaman" is a cross between an ER doctor and a Unitarian minister leading a seance. In presenting such a blind, backward and degrading view of a culture, Holder undermines all other elements of her story, which include a predictable and slow-moving romance with ridiculous dialogue and a startling magical theme that crops up at the end. Readers may well experience this effort as the heroine experiences battle: "She couldn't believe what she was seeing-the cruelty, the barbarism. She was screaming, " 'Stop! Stop! but no one did.' " (Fiction. 12-16) (Kirkus Reviews)
