In this novel, Reagan seems to have it all. She is a cheerleader who is dating the star quarterback and getting ready to start her senior year of high school with her best friends. Her father decides to take the family to Yellowstone for a last vacation before school starts. The vacation is going well until one night something goes terribly wrong. Regan is sleeping in a tent with her younger brother and her parents are sleeping in the tent beside them when Regan wakes up to a terrible scream. She goes looking for her brother but can’t find him then everything goes black. She wakes up in a hospital bed where her parents tell her she and her brother were most likely attacked by a bear and her brother has been killed and the body never found.
As the family grieves and tries to move on Regan begins to have flashbacks of the night that her brother disappeared and also is hearing voices. Regan’s grandmother, who has come to stay with the family to help them grieve, has her own way of trying to protect Regan but Regan’s mother doesn’t agree with her mother’s Wiccan ways. Regan isn’t sure who to believe but she knows that no one is telling her the truth about that night.
Regan has to make a decision of how far she is willing to go to learn the truth about her brother’s death even if it means losing everything she knows.
This is the first book in the Tala Prophesies by Tia Silverthorne Bach and I will definitely be reading the next installment. The book started off a little slow for me but I connected with Regan and became frustrated for her as she was searching for answers and wasn’t able to get them. I found myself rooting for her and can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment of this series.
I give this book 4 stars.
