Staff Reviews

Darcie Little Badger has the unique ability to write a story so compelling and natural that the world she creates is more convincing than our own. Perhaps Sheine Lende did once walk the land of the dead and reclaim her home after it was stolen from her, and this is the first time I'm hearing about it. Perhaps there are fairy rings that can transport you anywhere, and I simply have not been paying attention. Or perhaps not, and we're all simply very lucky to be living in a world where we get to read books written by Darcie Little Badger.

Shane works with her mother and their ghost dogs, tracking down missing persons even when their families can’t afford to pay. Their own family was displaced from their traditional home years ago following a devastating flood – and the loss of Shane’s father and her grandparents. They don’t think they’ll ever get their home back.

Then Shane’s mother and a local boy go missing, after a strange interaction with a fairy ring. Shane, her brother, her friends, and her lone, surviving grandparent – who isn’t to be trusted – set off on the road to find them. But they may not be anywhere in this world – or this place in time.

Nevertheless, Shane is going to find them.

Darcie Little Badger’s Elatsoe launched her career and in the years since has become a beloved favorite. This prequel to Elatsoe, centered on Ellie’s grandmother, deepens and expands Darcie’s one-of-a-kind world and introduces us to another cast of characters that will wend their way around readers’ hearts.
