Book Review: Thundered Hearts

Everyone knows the truth except her. Nineteen-year-old Beth lives in a world of Creek Indian myth, magic, and lies created by her family to keep her Power weakened.

Spirit Walkers harness the elements. Storms brew spewing her electrical energy over her hometown. Weaved into her spiritual journey is her birthright, but her family and the Native American Mandate bars her from fulfilling the destiny set by The One Above.

She saved his life once before. Three years ago, her best friend stormed from her life, ridiculing her and leaving invisible gashes sliced into her heart. Persevering on the surface, she dreams of fighting the terror haunting her town and the man who stole and broke her heart.

Her chance arises in the wake of The Green Corn Festival. Lucien arrives sick on her doorstep, but she isn’t a medicine woman. Despite the pain he causes her, she cannot let him die. Faced with the truth of her world, Beth must decide. Save the man she hates or fulfill her birthright.

Wow...this book was not what I was expecting at all. It focuses a lot on Beth and her powers and how her "family" has keep them secret from her. Reading some of the Native American lore was really interesting and I love how it just added to the story. Somehow though, when I finished the book, I just felt like it wasn't over, that there was more to come. There isn't any mention of a follow up book, but this one does read as if it's book one in a series. Overall, I'd say it's an interesting and enjoyable read, but be prepared to feel like you have some unanswered questions at the end of it.
