Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Interesting back story regarding this novel; Garth self-published it in 1998. It then went out of print and in 2010 was published by a publishing company. This story takes place in Alaska and revolves around folklore of the Tlingit Tribe. Garth's heritage is part of this Indigenous tribe which adds a richness to the novel and honours the folklore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different Some may consider this horror a book, a genre I generally don't like. It has nightmare-like creatures, but somehow having them be part of the Tlingit culture makes it different and OK for me. I like the shaman and shape shifting part of the story. It has a feel of science fiction, where anything can happen. The messed up lives of Jenna and Robert does not make them easy to like, but that is necessary for the story. It kept me wanting to read on to the finish.
