Official Summary: “In 1995, at the age of eight, Una Waters survived a terrifying encounter at 30,000 feet aboard Flight 564 from Dallas to Las Vegas. It changed her forever. After 21 years, and a decade away from the Hopi Reservation where she grew up as a child, a surprise plea for help brings Una back, to solve a mystery that threatens their traditional way of life. The U.S. Army’s sudden interest regarding a cave discovery in the Sacred Peaks has triggered alarm, leading to violence. With the help of friends, new and old, Una must confront her painful past, seek proof to qualify the ancient site for protection under law, and stand up to a stiff-necked general, whose agenda is more concerned with retrieving a mysterious power source.” – Goodreads
Review: The Scifi element to the story is very subtle. It hints at it throughout the door and only near the end do you see it in full effect. The history and the whole Native American element was just so interesting for me. I have zero clues whether the stories in this book are true or completely made up, either way they hooked me in.
The dialogue and some scenes in places did feel a little odd. Other characters were making Una out to be this amazing awesome person, yet she hadn’t really done a lot to earn that yet.
