About the Series: The Pipe Woman Chronicles
Naomi is a skilled mediator who has an uncanny knack for getting everyone to agree. And she is newly engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Brock. Life is pretty sweet. But on the winter solstice of 2012, she learns that a Native American goddess named White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman has drafted her. She has enhanced Naomi’s powers of persuasion so that she may mediate a peace agreement in heaven between all the pagan gods and goddesses and the Christian God.

The goddess has also given Naomi a team: Shannon, her Counselor and best friend; Joseph, a Ute skinwalker and her Guardian; and an Investigator who often causes more trouble than he is worth. Together, they embark on a journey that will change all their lives – one that will end in a time out of time, on a windswept plain, and with all life on Earth in the balance.

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.
