Another wonderful addition to a wonderful series, a series I hope does not end for a while. Although characters from the first two books make appearances and there is a wedding coming up this book can still be read as a stand-alone, but why would you want to miss out on such a wonderful series.

Nathan Gordon has been hired by a rancher, John MacAllister who has bought a new ranch and needs help in locating his missing men. Men sent to check out the property have disappeared without a word and Nathan and his partner Peter Jursic are there to find out what is going on. Nathan and his best friend  own Bastion Enterprises, a security firm, and he is also friends with Jody, who is lovingly called the ghost whisperer, and Rainy, a Wiccan High Priestess, both of whom we read about in the first two books so Nathan would not be totally shocked if what is happening is far from normal.

Nathan is in Arizona not far from the Navajo Reservation where the woman he has fallen in love with lives. He dreams of Bright Flower and has only seen her in the flesh once but he has no idea that his dreams since childhood have always been dream quests and very real. Bright Flower has always known that Nathan would one day be her husband and he is the only man she will ever wed in spite of her grandfather’s insistence that because they are shamans she has to marry a Navajo.

The only one that knows the secret of the land and the curse placed upon it is Spirit Keeper, Bright Flower’s grandfather, a secret he has not shared with anyone including her. The time has come when the protective barriers around the land are breaking down and that could eventually mean devastation to humanity. I won’t reveal what the curse is or how it has to be destroyed but I will say it kept me on the edge of my seat. The various protocols that are part of the Navajo beliefs were fascinating whether true or not, and I choose to believe, made for a great read. There is also a chance that this venture could bring an end to the relationship between Bright Flower and Nathan.

I picked up the book and did not put it down until I finished it, dinner could wait but finding out the end couldn’t. I can’t recommend this series highly enough, spirits, superstitions, romance, secrets and suspense, what more could one ask for.
