Back Cover Copy - Help Please!

My novel, Koicto, will be published by Sunstone Press I have been asked to write the back cover copy, and below is what I've come up with so far. Any comments you have for improving would be appreciated. Thank you!

Koicto transports us to an ancient Native American world where a gifted warrior dreams of leading his people through the ravages of war. Summoned by the Tribal Elders, Koicto forges a bond of brotherhood with the irascible cougar, Kitchi, and proves he’s worthy to become chief. But the Elders proclaim Koicto a shaman. They force him into an arranged marriage to the seer Catori, ignoring his love for the beautiful Pavati, and casting aside his burning desire to become chief of the Nahchee Nation.

When Koicto’s vision of war unfolds, he finds his village burned, his father murdered and Pavati taken. With Kitchi by his side, Koicto must fulfill destiny and avenge these wrongs. If he fails, the Nahchee will be no more.


  1. This sounds so intriguing! The second paragraph is the real hook, though. Love it.
