This is a mystical fantasy. You know there’s something weird going on from the first page, but it takes a while to realize that you’re not reading too much into it. The mythology of the Navajo forms the basis of this novel which takes us on an epic journey with battles that no one knew were being fought.
The crows are acting weird, but maybe that’s okay. Ben Dejooli thinks. It’s fall and crows flock in the fall. One dead gambler is a sad story, but too often on this part of the rez, people die for no reason. The problem is that the crows just keep acting weirder. They follow him around and seem to be keeping their eyes on him.
Carolyn knows there’s something wrong with Ben. She can see the colors of sickness on patients, and Ben is in real trouble. When Owen agrees with her they set out to convince Ben to get tested. That’s where everything goes sideways.
I recommend this to anyone who loves mystical stories that challenge the way you look at the world.
