Overview

In The Lamenting, Emme and her friends Jack, Ollie, Bets and Charlie are Spirit Warriors—teenagers who merge with spirit animals to fight the evil Machayiwiw, who’s brought tragedy to their families for generations. 

At the opening of Book Four of the Spirit Warriors series, we find Emme reeling from dehydration and hypothermia while Charlie recovers from a stab wound to the heart. The friends vow to use their special abilities to conquer the Machayiwiw once and for all. 

Emme musters the courage to instigate a battle, but what she thinks will be a clean solution spirals out of control. Charlie has become more grizzly bear than human and his rage results in a canyon full of dead poachers while the Machayiwiw flees yet again. As the friends struggle to bring Charlie back from the wild, Emme realizes it’s Jack who she’s loved all along. Threats and perils escalate along with Emme’s romance. 

In this story of suspense, tenderness and tragedy, the friends, in both their animal and human forms, face the ultimate question: What are they willing to sacrifice to save one another?

This is book 4 of a 5 book series.

Meet the Author

Della Connor (D.E.L. Connor) was born in South Dakota and raised in Southeastern Montana where she acquired a keen appreciation for Western and Native American culture. She moved to Texas as a young adult and acquired her honorary Texan status. She became a registered nurse, a nurse practitioner and eventually earned her PhD in nursing. She still works as a nurse educator and as a nurse practitioner. Her nights and weekends, however, are filled with her stories and books.

The Spirit Warriors story evolved from a short story she wrote for a college English class in the early 1990's. The professor read it, loved it and asked her to stay after class and discuss it. During this discussion, he told her that a "dark" story like hers, that was written for older children, would be unmarketable and unsaleable. The story kept floating around in her mind. Finally, J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyers and others stepped forward with amazing "dark" stories to create a new genre called Young Adult. The time was finally right for her to write the story that had consumed her imagination for so long.

As book three in the Spirit Warriors Series, I was hoping to get answers; I did, but not to the right questions. After reading all three Spirit Warriors books, I must say, I am disappointed. I pushed through them because I was intrigued with the story, but there comes a point to where, I just don’t care anymore. The books were repetitive and WAY TOO wordy to be read smoothly; unfortunately, I am still left with no satisfaction and ANOTHER cliffhanger. I am not continuing on with this series; they are just too much work for so little satisfaction. I rate The Burning with 3 Boundless Stars....Beth

I was given a book in exchange for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book. The story continues with a wedding coming and the friends recovering from the aftermath of homecoming night. That night weighs heavily on everyone and no one came out unaffected. The love triangle between Emme, Charlie, and Jack is still strong. They continue to get ready for their final battle with the Machayiwiw. Once again I found myself devouring this book. I have been in love with this series since the first chapter. I feel so attached to these characters. My feelings for them are so strong. I hurt when Emme, Charlies, Bets, Jack, Archie, or Ollie hurt. I'm happy when they are happy. The author has bonded me to these characters and I feel like I'm apart of their friendship. I think this book is a perfect for the rest of the series. You get a better insight to each of the characters. My favorite character is Jack. I think he has such a pure soul. I love to watch him fall and stay in love with Emme. He is thoughtful and generous. I was skeptical of him at first but now he seems to belong. The wedding was my favorite part. I was bawling from happiness during the flower exchange. It was a pure and raw moment that I plan on remembering forever. I can't wait to see how Boreas turns out out. All the animals have a special place in my heart and feel like I need to pick a favorite animal. My favorite animal is Hercules. He is strong and powerful and plays a major role. I just really like him. I can't wait to read the final showdown and I'm sad it will end. I'm scared what will be lost during the showdown. I will have a hard time saying goodbye to these characters.
