The Battle Dancer (Prequel 1 to The Red Wraith Series)

Everyone in Dzune had always assumed Tay could read fates, that her milky eyes let her discern what others couldn't. Villagers brought gifts in exchange for her wisdom and treated it as the ironclad word of the Sun Father. There was only one problem: Tay couldn't actually see the future.

 

Not at all initially, and only a little after her awakening. She'd had a true vision once, though, an image of her—armed and angry—safeguarding a strange man on a green hill. And now that man had come to Dzune.

The Ascenders (Prequel 2 to The Red Wraith Series)

On a summer day atop the Messippi pyramid of Saint’s Summit, an original man known to some as Naysin and many more as the Red Wraith fulfilled a vision by summoning four lesser shamans to meet him in one moon’s time. When they arrived, he froze them in midstride and peered into their memories. The vision hadn’t specified why he needed the other shamans there, but Naysin knew that, if he were to remake the world before he died, he had to find the answers hidden in the shamans’ pasts. This is what he saw.
