Overview

Trapped in a world where the legends of Tewa mythology walk free, a young girl must solve an ancient mystery in order to return to her own world.

It is the beginning of summer, and twelve-year-old Maggie is angry about her family's move from San Diego to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Lonely and resentful at her new circumstances, Maggie and her dog Jack explore their new neighborhood and soon find the shady trail leading up to the Rio Grande.

While playing by the river, Jack startles a strange young boy, Ash. Maggie is slowly drawn away from the real world of her family and into Ash's land, one populated by myths and legends. Threatening all is Shriveled Corn Man, a powerful sorcerer in search of vengeance for wrongs long past.

Guided by the trickster Coyote and the cryptic Spider Old Woman, Maggie and Jack must travel across Ash's world in order to free her new friend and his people.

Meet the Author

I didn’t grow up planning to be a writer. I was never one of those kids scribbling stories in a notebook, or submitting to the school paper. But I’ve always been a voracious reader. A few years ago, I realized I had some of my own stories to tell. I’ve been lucky enough to have participated in some fabulous crit groups, and to have attended the Taos Toolbox Workshop. I love reading. I love stories of adventure, stories that grab me and won’t let me go. Stories that will stay with me for years. Old and new, paper books, digital and comics – anything with a good story is fair game. And I love writing, telling stories, creating worlds and people and histories… and then doing terrible things to them! My background is in medieval history (Spanish manuscripts of the apocalypse, if you were wondering), but as I’m fond of being able to pay the bills, I work at our local university, as well some freelance work as a web designer. I live in Las Vegas, New Mexico (the smaller, older, and much quieter one) with my husband and our two cats and two dogs. We travel as much as possible, and are active with our local animal rescue group.

This was a good read. While billed as young adult, with a teen protagonist, this is one that worked for me as an adult, too. The interaction of the modern day with Native myth seemed both well done and also very respectful of the traditions used. I don't know enough of the culture to report on accuracy, but the level of respect for it approached that of Tony Hillerman's Navajo novels. Different genre and style, obviously, but the same care and respect and (as far as I can tell) appropriate handling and interaction of the cultures.

This is an excellent story full of action and mystery.  I read this to my daughter and we finished it in a week just reading at night.  I recommend it without exception.
