Awenasa Dawes thought that when she left the Reservation against the wishes of her father—who also happens to be the chief—she’d most likely never be welcomed back. But when a rash of very strange deaths occur, the detective must return to her home and her people. In the process she meets Uzumati, a suspect with a secret but who she feels an instant connection to.
As Awen’s investigation heats up, so do things with Mati. And as she finds out truth after truth, the legends of her people become reality, putting everyone she loves in danger and forcing her to realize that maybe only a princess can save them all.
