This was a fun read. The story had a good pace to it.I really liked the Indian legends and customs.
This is the story of Wray Sky. A girl with blond hair and blue eyes that was given to and adopted by the Ute tribe. Her parents couldn't have children. Her parents were murdered and she now lives with her great grandmother. So from the beginning there are questions you want answered. Who left her and who murdered her parents?
She finds that answer and much more as the story progresses. She has a little bit of a crush on Kanaan and has a best friend in Amaya. I love legends and I love her great grandmother Amaya who seems to be a bit of a mystery herself! Everyone seems to have secrets and no one wants to get anyone else hurt so they all keep them. If that seems odd then you'll have to read this book. I loved it! I recomend this to anyone who likes the paranormal and likes Indian cultures and traditions!

A recommended read for all Young (and older) Adults. It's not only for the young, it's for all that are young and magical at heart. I've read reviews that compare this story with Harry Potter...I say it's one better. The subtle magic makes the story more realistic than the magic in the Potter books. The author has a way of convincing the reader that magic is REAL. You'll find yourself falling in love with Wary, Kanaan, and most of all with MawMaw. Even though this book is part of a series, it can stand on its own, but before the end of the book, you won't want it to end. You'll want to read more about these wonderful characters and just wait till the end...you'll be on pins and needles waiting for the next installment. I had the pleasure of being a beta reader for this book and am begging Ms. Luke to allow me the privilege on her next book.

Review by: Helmy Kusuma on Aug. 10, 2011 :
This a fun YA read that reminds me of Disney's movie. Not-overly-serious-and-light tone will get you easily turning pages after pages. Lexus builds events slowly and innocently in the most teenage way imaginable.
I am not fond of the turn by turn navigation of the story but spiritual is my favorite genre, so I willingly gobbled this one up.

Review by: Paul Clayton on Aug. 03, 2011 :
Manitou (The Sky People Saga) by Lexus Luke is a nice new addition to the popular YA fantasy-adventure genre. But unlike most of these offerings, Manitou brings more to the table than just a plucky heroine, mystical powers, mystery, suspense and fun. Luke mixes in Ute (Native American) origin myths with some fun sci-fi, Ancient Astronaut twists, and the paranormal, to broaden and uplift that category. Combine this with her realistic and sympathetic characterizations of modern Native Americans and their Euro-American neighbors, all attempting to go about their daily lives after a mysterious McGuffin is unearthed, hidden away, and then, frantically searched-for by tough, sadistic goons— and you have a genuine page-turner. I especially enjoyed the characterization of Wray Sky, MawMaw, her grandma, standing in for the murdered mother, Kanaan, the hunk boyfriend, no player he, best girlfriend, the aunt— all could be people you know or wish you knew. A first rate read!

Review by: Marc Clubs on July 24, 2011 :
Move over Harry Potter!!! Manitou The Sky People Saga is a wonderful book that satisfies that mystery loving child in us all. Filled with loveable characters, drama, suspense, and the perfect amount of science fiction, I wouldn't know where to classify it other than to say it has something for everyone. I was a little thrown off by the title at first, but after reading the book I found it fits well. Couldn't put it down, eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!
