Loki Redmond swore she’d never return to the reservation, but two missing hunters and the ancient Choctaw myth of Nalusa Falaya take her and her brother, Dadron, on a dangerous trek through the wilderness.
Meanwhile, her partner Jake Savior, heads to Tunica, Mississippi, to investigate the second mass killing by a Choctaw police officer.
Are the cases connected?
The only thing they know for sure is innocent blood has been shed, and unless they can find the source more are going to die.
This is the second book in a series, but can be read as a standalone. But it’ll make you want to read the entire series. So be ready for that.
This book has a great mystery – especially for this time of the year: it’s gruesome, creepy and with just enough of a paranormal edge to be believable. This book really doesn’t hold back with the gory details. And I really liked that. The revelations and action come fast and furious, so buckle up!
But the true gold in this book is the characters- hands down. Loki, her brothers, Jake, Grace, I loved them all and I found myself not only reading to find out what was going on with the central mystery, but to find out what was going to happen to the characters. I’m totally ready to read book three in this series just to see what happens with all the couples. They were all lovable, believable and I found myself rooting for each of them.
I also cried during a certain scene with a character. Read it and you’ll know. It’s intense and I took the emotional bait, lol.
Also why I want to read book three: [Minor Spoiler alert!!] Tim and Neta hooked up right? Right?!
I highly recommend this book and am seriously waiting for the next in the series.
About the Author
Linda S. Prather is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author of 8 novels including two legal thrillers, a paranormal FBI series, one romance, and her current series involving Loki Redmond, a Choctaw private investigator and Jake Savior, a former police officer. Linda lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband and grandchild, along with the “king” of the house, a Shitzu name Popcorn. Her latest release, Innocent Blood is her second in the Loki Redmond/Jake Savior series. In Linda’s own words: “This book is my favorite so far. My grandfather was a full-blooded Native American, and my mother half Native American. Prior to my marriage and children I studied Shamanism and developed a true love for nature. Studying the Choctaw history, customs, myths and religions was fascinating. Taking the facts I learned and weaving them into Loki’s story and her investigation into the disappearance of two hunters on the reservation was an emotional roller coaster for me. I found myself crying quite often.”
