    Seized (The Pipe Woman Chronicles) by Lynne Cantwell Native

    Seized (The Pipe Woman Chronicles) by Lynne Cantwell




    Native American and old world mythos intertwine in a captivating story surrounding the winter of solstice 2012. Naomi has a pretty sweet life as a skilled mediator at a large legal firm in Colorado and she has just become engaged. When events from her past come to light, her whole world is turned upside down. It will never be the same again.




    I have a soft spot for Native American stories, I am not sure why, as far as I know I have no Native American blood. I also enjoy stories about old world gods and myths. This story combines the two in a unique way. This contemporary fantasy is told through Naomi's eyes. She is an intelligent, well-balanced character that you can't help but like. The story is well thought out, draws you in quickly and has a steady building plot that adds some interesting twists.




    Each character in the story is well developed and plays an important part in the development of the plot. I loved the way this story challenges all belief systems, this author has taken this on in a grand scale. The dialogue is realistic, entertaining, and humorous at times. I found it very easy to suspend my disbelief and become immersed in the story. I am excited to see where she takes us as this story continues to build in its ever-widening scope. Well done, Ms. Cantwell, well done. I think I have found a new favorite fantasy author.




    This book contains adult language and situations that may be offensive to some, but I don't feel they were added for shock value. I found no significant errors or issues.

    I really enjoyed the character's in this story they all were rea

    I really enjoyed the character's in this story they all were really strong and could handle themselves really well. I really liked how Naomi had to face off with her ex- fiance who in turn had a Norse God with him. Naomi did find the love she needed with Joesph which in turns is suppose to be her Guardian according to Half Pipe Woman. Joseph is a great guy he knows actually how to trick people into doing what they should be doing but also has a temper to watch out for.

    It was a really Great Mythology and Native American story, mixed really well I have never read one like this before. I felt like the author did a great job trying to stay true to both things in the story while at the same time making it Urban. I gave it 3 stars only because it took me awhile to finish it and I don't like taking a very long time to read something. Meaning it took forever for me to get too the main point of the story and that kinda bugged me. Yes, I understand that to make a good story you can't jump into the good stuff have to ease into it, but this just took to long to get their. This was a well written story.

    I did receive this book in a group read for free from Goodreads it just took me a little longer to finish I did however get it somewhat finished close to September. So I thank the author for letting me read her story.
