Tamechactee: Battle for Humanity is the sequel to the Arrow Soul book and it takes right off with a fluidity that should make it easy for both those who have read and those who have not read the first book. Young author Joseph Landing, Jr. has a real knack for writing and a vivid imagination, a pair of attributes that may soon make him a force in the genre of young adult literature. In a world ravaged by nuclear aftermath, Marcus Riel, known as the Tamechactee, must gather together humans and Lycans and motivate them to fight the Daemons, a super race that is taking over the world and using humans as cattle. The Tamechactee realizes that his forces are small, but he then hears about a large band of peaceful beings named the Juggernauts. Tamechactee hopes to locate them in the mountains of France and convince them to join in his quest to eliminate the world of a being who calls himself The Maker.

The character of Tamechactee is marvelous. Even though he is a hybrid human, he has tender feelings as well as feelings of fear and love for humanity. His friends appear to be typical teens and young adults who crave love, romance and adventure. The friendship among the friends, despite their varied interests, is the heart-warming part of a book which tends toward ongoing war and aggression. I thoroughly enjoyed the book but felt that one hundred and fifty pages of battle scenes at the end was a bit much. But, for those loving adventure, Landings provides plenty. If you love other world literature, Tamechactee: Battle for Humanity will hold your attention.
