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.
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.”
I was privaledged to have been part of the journey for this book. It is one of my top books read this year.
The story really resonates with me as I love this style of book and also has a lot of what I love about reading about another culture.
I have always had a passion for the Native American arts and stories so this made sure it ticked all boxes.
In this book you got to see more of the past of Loki and her brothers which helps to flesh out why they are personality wise the way they are.
Linda Prather drew me into the landscape of this book with an ease of a master writer. She is one of the best and most talented authors I have read and i can’t wait to see what she does next.
