The main character, Jennifer Talldeer, is a private investigator. She is also Kestral-Hunts-Alone, an apprentice shaman learning modified tribal magic from her grandfather. She is called in to investigate possible sabotage at a local construction site where Indian artifacts have been found. Much like Diana Tregarde, Jennifer is an independent woman and a powerful magic worker who also has mundane problems. In her short story After Midnight Lackey insinuates that the novel was an attempt to recover the spirit of the Diana Tregarde novels after the fiasco with a few fans believing the novels were based on real events. Note, a significant amount of text, and a couple of major characters in this work are adapted from stories written by Lackey in the Merovingen Nights shared universe series.

Jun 22, Carrie rated it really liked it I love this series. That being said, this is definitely my least favorite book of the series. It felt, for lack of a better word, rushed.
Obviously, Kiron notes the changes that he sees occurring in his wing, but it rarely is demonstrated in actual interactions with any of them that the reader can see.
There are obviously exceptions to this, but they just make the rest of the wing seem even more bland. For starters, the writing is very repetitive. After the first pages or so though, it just seemed like the story stopped and it was just details after details, things that had been repeated so many times before. This book to me felt like a This book is the second of the Jousters series.
This book to me felt like a sandwich with the bread being the best part of it. Also, the amount of characters in this book just seemed too much for the authors abilities. There were so many names and they all looked the same! I did give it 3 stars though because I do want to know what will happen next. The story itself is really good but I just wish the writing was more full of action.
