Product description:

What would you die for?
Samantha Danroe doesn’t believe in magic. Her ex-husband cured her of happily-ever-after when he cheated on her three days after saying I-do.
She doesn’t believe in ghosts. Until her mother’s ghost rises from a Halloween bonfire with a warning of death from beyond the grave.
And she certainly doesn’t believe in witchcraft. Until she becomes the prey in an ancient war waged between good and evil. A war whose rules she must scramble to learn to stay alive.
In need of protection, Samantha turns to the mysterious Nicholas Orenda, a sixth-generation witch on the trail of a creature who is systematically killing off his family. According to his family’s prophecy, three will be sacrificed to the dark. His mother and grandmother are already dead, and Nicholas doesn’t have time to play by the rules.
Samantha finds herself in the center of a deadly hunt for a mysterious foe. Can she find the strength to defeat a supernatural killer and prevent the third sacrifice? Or will she be the catalyst that opens the gates to the Underworld?

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. I don’t think that I have read a pagan book that has been so thoroughly researched by the author since the late Dion Fortune. The native American spiritualism was a big hit with me and I really enjoyed the fusion of native American language and mythology.

Of course, I fell in love with the red-headed main character immediately ( she did make me think of someone I know).  I liked the setting of Sedona Arizona. It is hard to find something to dislike about this book. Simply put, it’s a good read that I highly recommend. I give Song of the Ancients 5 stars out of 5.
