About the Book
Title: The Raven’s Daughter
Author: Peggy A. Wheeler
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Expected Publication Date: February 29th, 2016
Synopsis: A Murdering Demon and a Myth Come to Life
After a police shoot out where she killed a man, criminologist Maggie Tall Bear Sloan retires from the force to enjoy some peace and quiet in a rural California town. But when children are murdered, she is recruited by the local sheriff to solve the gruesome killings.
As the manhunt intensifies, Maggie will do whatever it takes to keep her family safe from the killer. Awake or asleep, Maggie is faced with a difficult choice: embrace her heritage, even if that means turning into myth itself. Or deny that heritage and lose everything.
But to catch a killer, Maggie must accept her true nature as a “pukkukwerek”- the shapeshifting monster killer of Yurok legend-or more children will die.
Maggie must find a way to trust herself again, learning along the way that not all things are as they seem, and that some myths really are true.
