Publisher's Summary

The safest place they know is about to become the most dangerous… Marcella's husband, Quinn "Black Eagle" Hollister, severed ties to his family and friends on the Seneca reservation years ago. He rarely mentions his past-until his young cousin Kitty collapses on the couple's doorstep in the dead of a rainswept night. After two Seneca men break into their home with intent to kill, the Hollisters flee with the mute and injured girl to Tall Pines, their cabin in the Adirondacks. Marcella, unable to bear a child of her own, unleashes her motherly instincts caring for Kitty. As the girl slowly recovers, they start to piece together who wants them dead, and why. But their pursuers are canny and relentless. The next attack drives the trio from the sanctuary of Tall Pines, deep into the mountain wilderness. In spite of their best efforts, the unthinkable happens and Kitty is kidnapped. Marcella and Quinn track her back to Tall Pines - where they find themselves facing an army of murderous Seneca who'll stop at nothing to protect their dark secret.

Good mystery

Would you try another book from Aaron Paul Lazar and/or Gwendolyn Druyor?

Yes, this is my first time reading a book by Mr. Lazar. So that is saying a lot especially reading Book 3 without reading the first 2 books.

Would you ever listen to anything by Aaron Paul Lazar again?


Any additional comments?

I am a big fan of the show Longmire on Netflix which is rich in Native American folklore and the spirit world. So when I was got this book I was really excited because I was expecting to get a dose of Native American legends and their spiritual world. Well, there was some mentioned of it but not enough. I wish there was more of it but instead the essential oils was mentioned more.

I knew that I was reading book 3 out of order and did not expected to know to much about the characters. I think it would have been beneficial to the reader if Mr. Lazar had written a prologue or something to give reader such as myself some frame reference the relation between the characters. I guess it's not fair for me to criticize this part but I was told that I did not need to read the first 2 books to follow the story. And this is true but for me to stay immerse in the story telling I need to understand the dynamic between the different characters. But throughout the whole story I kept wondering how these character knew each other and how they interacted in the previous 2 books. Again that is not the authors fault but mine for not reading the first 2 books. With that said, I will definitely go back and read the first 2 books to fully appreciate this one.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It is an interesting story and I do like Lazar's writing style and Druyor's narration style.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I have always been interested in essential oils so their inclusion was interesting.

Which scene was your favorite?

It is obvious that the author researched the oils and native procedures that were included in the book. For someone, like me, who is already familiar with them it bordered on too much detail.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were only a few places where her voice was too soft. She did a great job, overall.

Any additional comments?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
