It Sleeps in Me (In Me Series) by W. Michael Gear,Kathleen O'Neal Gear

Sora is the wise, young High Chieftess of the Black Falcon Nation. For many winters her heart belonged to her husband, Flint, a warrior from a neighboring clan. Flint truly loved Sora, but jealousy drove him to beat men to death for merely casting a longing glance at his wife. Unable to live with his murderous rage, Flint moved back to his mother's clan, divorcing Sora and leaving her forever.Remarried and fully devoted to her duties as the High Chieftess, Sora tries to bury her memories of Flint. Then, on the eve of war with a neighboring nation, she is visited by Skinner, an old friend of Flint. Skinner tells her of Flint's death, but Sora feels that he carries part of Flint's soul inside him. When Skinner reveals secrets that only Flint would know, and rouses her passion in ways only Flint had, Sora must figure out if this is the clever witchcraft of enemies who want to seize her power and destroy her nation, or the spirit of her one and only true love.

Kathleen O’Neal Gear created a complex and intriguing character with Sora, the High Chieftess of the Black Falcon Nation. Gear pulled me immediately into wanting to know who Sora is with the first sentence in the book,“OF COURSE, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. HOW COULD ANY SANE person believe that he is still alive inside me?” As I delved deeper into Sora’s world it nt only showed me a culture’s beliefs, customs, and mythology but how the Native Americans explained schizophrenia or epilepsy. Not only does Sora have to deal with her condition, she has to decide the fate of her clan, their relationship with the other tribal nations, conspiracies, and deal with the return of her dead ex-husband’s soul—which was the most interesting scenes in the book.

IT SLEEPS IN ME is about love, obsession, soul possessions, power struggles, and something I found interesting, spiritual suicide. I enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to read the second book in this trilogy.
Kathleen O'Neal Gear is superb at catching your attention and not letting you go. She touches on the truly compassionate nature of the Natives NY displaying their caring, loving, gentle way they take care of their own. Whether they by physically, spirituality, !mental, or emotional, healing was done with love in mind. Today's people could learn from this! I would recommend this book to everyone who wants a better understanding of human nature and what it is like to be stuck mentally. Another best for Kathleen!!!!

One of the most fascinating books I''ve ever read. This look at either epilepsy or, possibly schizophrenia, viewed through the eyes of a primitive people is truly fascinating. How must it have felt to be so lost in your own mind with no doctors there to try to explain what was happening to you?
I can appreciate how difficult it must be in this modern era to understand either of these diseases when you have modern medicine to try to guide you but back then. I shudder to think of it.
The O'Neals (hope I spelled that right) write so beautifully it takes my breath away some tiimes. I have read some of thier books that I dearly loved in the past. I plan to start at the beginning of thier North American Peoples series and work my way through it after this series which I highly recommend for all adult readers. It's not for children and I would even hesitate letting young teens read it. For everyone else GO FOR IT!!!
This is book one of the "in me series." I should've read them in order but they are still very interesting. Learning about the great civilizations before the European's started getting involved in our society's civilization.
It is a good book but it is something fiercely strange. I mean, if f'd up books is your thing - here you go. Good writing however, interesting plot and did not see that ending coming. Was it a bit crude, yeah, but I mean - we adults here.
I love this series. Only thing I've noticed is it repeats certain pieces of the plot over and over per novel, I guess as a way to refresh your memory, but it's just sort of unnecessary.
I got the first book from a thrift store then ended up buying the rest... very interesting!
I have ordered most of the Gear books, I await the next one,
