I read a lot of books in this genre, but this has got to be one of the most original stories I've come across in a long time. It starts out a bit generic, but then things start to get interesting. The author has clearly done SO much research in order to make the world of the Navajo believable in this book, it is amazing. I loved the romance in this book, but also the rich history and sense of spirituality in the story. Shadow of Time has interesting and relatable characters, a gripping mystery, and a wealth of information about the Navajos and Native Americans. Don't miss this book if you like paranormal romance, get it NOW!
