I read this before reading Thunderstone, which I'm happy about. Honestly, while I'd love to read more books about Ice and the Obijwe culture, I didn't care for the excerpt of Thunderstone included with the book. It fell into too many Teenage Fiction tropes in the first chapter alone. But I loved this novel, and would love to read more books from Ice's perspective. He was a great character, and the plot was solid.
Set in Minnesota on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation; Ice (16, Ojibwa, medicine man's apprentice) was about to embark on his vision quest.
He lived with his single mom (Catholic) & was home schooled. He had a chance to go to the University of Minnesota (Golden Gophers). His Ojibwa biological father had left long ago.
1 day by chance after Hockey practice he meets Lynn Ballentine Troy sister).
Troy Ballentine is the Captain of Cass Lake HS hockey team. Lynn is a little more daring & ask Ice out to a HS dance.
Ice quest (spiritual guidance) he was taken on the journey by an otter to meet his ancestors. Not this time it was a Manitou then transformed into a bear (spirit).
What is the tale of the Windigo about?
Ice went to see Nik (medicine man, Niski’gwun, aka Ruffled Feathers). Nik fed
Ice breakfast & the 2 talked about his ordeal. Nik explained that Ice (aka Shattered Ice) had witnessed the North Wind (Windigo curse).
Nik made several inquiries around town & Mr. Nesbitt (teacher) had been suspended for sexual harassment.
Could the tale of the Windigo be true in this case!?
Nik wanted Ice to keep an eye out for/on Mr. Harrison Nesbitt.
Ice along with Corey (BMF, hockey team's goalie) was headed out to a cabin out by Itasca State Park (Park Rapids) that Harrison owned.
What would the 2 uncover?
Ice relayed the information back to Nik Dale’s great grandfather).
It was Friday & the 4 of them; Ice & Lynn Ballentine & Audrey Hayes (Corey ex-G/F, Lynn BFF) & Dale Quinn (Aubrey B/F) were going to the HS dance.
Nik & Ice were headed to the Leech Lake Tribal Police department. They were greeted by Officer Rondele.
The slow process of interviewing the Cass Lake HS staff/students about Mr. Harrison Nesbitt was about to begin.
Will Harrison be found guilty & brought to justice?
Will Ice go to college?
Will Lynn & Ice fall in love?
Does Dale Quinn have any deep dark secrets?
I loved the philosophical words of wisdom at the top of each chapter.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written exciting, adventurous fascinating Native American book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make great Ojibwa Native American movie, or mini TV series. A book I could not put down. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
Thank you for the free book (Smashwords)

many blanks about the past and lead in seamlessly to Thunderstone. I bought both for my granddaughters but might well be a
closet young adult fan. Refreshing and thought provoking.
