Alone against the forces of darkness . . .
Jennifer Talldeer is Osage and Cherokee, grand-daughter of a powerful medicine man. She walks a difficult path: contrary to tribal wisdom, grandfather Mooncrow teaches Jennifer more than usual shaman’s skills, but also a warrior’s magics.
As Kestral Hunts-Alone – apprentice shaman in the spirit world – and Jennifer Talldeer – young, female private investigator – she must use all her skills, both magical and professional, to solve a mysterious and potentially terrifying situation.
Fragments of human bone and Native Indian artifacts are discovered on the site of a new shopping mall, where there have been a number of strange and violent occurences.
The mall site is not the only desecration claiming Jennifer’s attention: for the grace of her great ancestor, the medicine man Watches-Over-The-Land, has been destroyed, and a great evil freed to walk the land.
Jennifer must stand against the darkness. If she wavers even for an instant, she will be annihilated – and the world will fall into oblivion.
