Emma Horserider is known as a horse whisperer and telepath and someone is killing wild mustangs using a drone sending her to calm the horses and find out who is responsible.
While investigating Emma herself is shot at and it was one of the horses that stood in front of her and saved her life. Emma’s brother Bert Blackfeather is the Director of Homeland Security’s Anomaly Defense Division and the shootings are leading him to believe it could be an act of terrorism.
Bert sends one of his agents, Brandon Winchester (Bronco) with orders to find out what is happening in Montana at the Crow Reservation and to not allow his sister to bully him. When Bert and Emma first see each other there are definitely sparks but neither of them is willing to give in to those feelings, there is a job to do. Emma wants to be part of the investigation but Bert will only allow her to be a consultant, she got shot at once and he was not going to let it happen again if he can help it.
Bert sends Emma and Bronco to the Hotel LaBelle to see Lucius and Tallulah Stewart who we met in book one and who I absolutely fell in love with. Now Tallulah is pregnant and she and Lucius have been married for a year. I don’t want to go into any details as to what transpired with them in the first book but highly recommend you read it. Bert has a powerful medicine stick giving him the ability to disappear something that could be very helpful in finding the guilty parties. Bronco is a remote viewerand between him and Bert they should be able to get the job done except for the fact that Tallulah is due to give birth in a few weeks and taking Bert away from her now would not be the right thing to do, so that is all the opening Emma needs to assist Bronco.
Neo-nazis seem to be the likely culprits and Bronco has a first hand knowledge of them because of his insane father and his hatred. He was taken away by his mother when he was about seven years old but his fraternal twin Jack refused to go with them and was left behind to be raised by a monster. The story of Bronco and his family is heart breaking but scary in as much as these things go on every day all over the country.
I loved book one and loved book two just as much, in book one we had little Franny the dacshund and in this book we have Gaucho the bobcat. All the characters both human and animal are wonderful and all I can say is read this series to find out what happens because I have said all I am going to say about this book for fear of giving too much away. I will say that how Emma and Bronco go about finding the one’s responsible for the killings is quite a story.
