Ancient rituals. Up-to-the minute deception.Reporter Taylor McWhorter knows something is going on at the newly reopened uranium mine on the local Navajo reservation. The Native workers are being fired. Rumors of bad Native American spirits and shapeshifters mingle with the stink of leach pit mining. The rough red mountains and steep canyons hide more passes and getaway trails than any maze. And Taylor’s sources keep turning up dead…Until she meets Captain Trace Yazzie, head of the tribal police force and plenty to reckon with on his own. The chemistry between them is enough to incinerate Taylor’s rule about mixing business and pleasure. But with a murderer on the loose, priceless Navajo artifacts turning up in the wrong places, and Trace’s suggestion that spirits disturbed from looted burial sites might be part of the problem, Taylor can’t afford to lose her head to lust. This might be the story of the year. But unless she keeps her wits about her, it could be the last one Taylor ever tells…

Review

This was an interesting read for me. I’m not too savvy on Navajo customs and traditions, but this book made me want to know more. I did get lost every now and then since my knowledge of the Navajo’s are very limited. After a few Google searches I understood things a little better, and I am able appreciate the book more.  I don’t typically read a lot of paranormal romances, so this book was a change for me. It was refreshing reading something different, and I’m looking forward to what the author has in store for us next. The research for this book had to be massive. I liked how the author let the characters flow with the information us readers needed to know. It didn’t feel as if they were giving us a history lesson, but reiterating the importance of their history and customs. I liked how the paranormal played a part in the story but didn’t consume the story. You get a little bit of everything with this book. I’m happy I took the time to read it. It has opened me up to a genre I wouldn’t typically jump to first. Definitely worth the read.

About Nessa @ Bookish Things

It’s always hard to do an “about me.” I’m not really good at talking about myself so here it goes… I love to read. The only other thing I love as much as reading is fashion. Reading got me through some of the darkest days of my life, and even now it helps me after those stressful days at the office. On top of being an avid reader, I am a student, wife, a mother of two boys (ages 7 and 4), and a full time employee. My plate is definitely full, but I love every minute of my life. Maybe not always the countless hours at the office, but I am definitely blessed. I agreed to help Katrina with her blog, and boy I didn’t realize how much work it truly is! I am honored to be a part of it. I read a lot of contemporary novels, but Katrina has opened me up to the world of YA. I have to say I am hooked! I bow to all the wonderful authors of this genre. The worlds they put together is amazing. I am a fine arts junkie. I love art, movies, theater, and music. Anything that you can do to express yourself, to show your creativeness and uniqueness, I’m normally a fan of. I am an activist of being true to yourself and always marching to the beat of your own drum. I feel it is important to know who you are, and never apologize for being yourself. I love to laugh so I haunt comedy clubs frequently. I am also a homebody. This sister likes your downtime! You can usually find me snuggled in my bed with a good book, watching a movie or my seasons of Buffy. The show never gets old people!!!! That’s about all there is to know about me, so keep reading you bookish babes!
