The Stilt Walker
Book Five in Jazan Wild's Carnival Of Souls series.
The Stilt Walker is the tale of Skyy, a Native American who rides high on the plains and who has all of his people looking up to him for his strength and courage. Able to see visions, one night a vision of two sets of wagons plagues his mind. One wagon carries pale face soldiers, while the other has a colorful crew and painted faced monster... known to the spirits as Jexter the Clown! Captured and hung out to dry in the scorching desert sun, Skyy just will not die. After all, he doesn't know it yet, but he's about to rise higher than ever before and become a Freak Show's Warrior!
