Raised by the Kehani tribe since birth, orphaned Niann remains an outcast, denied even a visit to the dreaming-place to discover his spirit guide. Compelled to make the journey anyway, Niann is chosen by the Kala Deer, known for its ability to strengthen the animal spirits of others through sex. Now the tribe's shaman is determined to use Niann's power to transcend into the spirit world.
Hunter and carver Jennar swore to love and protect Niann always, but when his attentions interfere with the shaman's plans, he's forced to leave the tribe and Niann. Haunted by dreams of the Deer, Jennar returns home, horrified to find Niann changed in body and mind from living under the shaman's influence. To save the man he loves, Jennar must face his secret shame and risk the destruction of the spirit world by the shaman's relentless ambition.
