My Review: 

What a fun twist on a paranormal mélange of Native American and Old European lore to create a uniquely new dark fantasy, and bring readers something new and different in this popular genre.  This is not a book that ‘feels familiar’, nor is this author’s style reminiscent of any others that I have read. It is unique – and delightfully so.

The characters are cleverly and tightly crafted, with plotting and timelines being far more variable and “Dr. Who” than one usually encounters.  This adds some delightful twists that keep the reader wondering just what is next, while a surprisingly satisfactory conclusion leaves the reader both satisfied and ready to know more.  Fortunately, I believe the author thought that would be the result, so a tidy epilogue ties up the ends and sets the stage for a whole new adventure with this Trickster god.

There is tons of goodness neatly wrapped in prose, clever dialog and the engaging style of the author – making this one of the quickest and most satisfying low-calorie treats out there.

I received an eBook copy from FMB Tours for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
