Winner: Mom's Choice Award -- Silver Metal
Winner: Awesome Indies -- Seal of Approval
Recipient: Readers' Favorite -- 5 Star Review

Juliet Wildfire Stone hears voices and sees visions, but she can't make out what they mean. Her eccentric grandfather tells her stories about the Great Wind Spirit and Coyote, but he might as well be speaking another language. None of it makes any sense.

When she stumbles upon a series of murders, she can't help but worry her grandfather might be involved. To discover the truth, Juliet must choose between her new life at an elite private school and her Native American heritage. Once she uncovers an ancient secret society formed over two hundred years ago to keep her safe, she starts to wonder whether there's some truth to those old stories her grandfather has been telling her.

All she wants is to be an average sixteen-year-old girl, but she has never been average-couldnever be average.

Betrayed by those she loves, she must decide whether to run or risk everything by fulfilling her destiny as the Chosen.
"Wind Catcher is a suspenseful, wonderfully written story that will capture your attention and hold it prisoner. A book that you won't want to escape from. Brava!" - Stephen Fisher, Readers' Favorite Book Reviews

Check My Review!

Juliet Stone is a Native American who attends a private school with mainly Caucasian youth. She doesn't feel as though she fits in at Barten's, hasn't made more than one friend and hates it there.

She's started hearing voices and it seems strange things are going on including murders of people belonging to a secret society that her grandfather Sicheii is part of. Each member has a tattoo with a pair of twisted arrows with different arrowheads and the arrows are surrounded with a circle.

The Prologue is attention-grabbing. Chapter 1 is gripping.  After that, you can't put it down. These authors know how to write a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Their story moves along with fluidity through its twists and turns and amazing surprises until the end which is totally unexpected.

The characters are well-developed so that we care about them and what happens to them. It surprised me what some of these characters that I liked could do that I don't approve of. I guess it surprised Juliet too and that is why she said her life was a lie. But then she didn't find out who she was until she was almost 16.

Wind Catcher was certainly not quite what I had expected. This is the second book I have read with Jeff Altabef as the author and I am beginning to think that when you pick up a book where he is the author, you'd better expect the unexpected. That's a good thing because it's a pleasant surprise how he can twist things in his stories to go in directions you wouldn't think he would take the story. Thats what keeps it so fresh and exciting. And now that he's teamed up with his daughter Erynn, I'm sure the creativity and unexpected will be even greater.

I totally enjoyed Wind Catcher. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense or thriller novels. I gave it 5 stars out of 5. Im looking forward to book 2 of this series.

Thank you to the authors for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
