“Highly recommended for fans of Dana Stabenow's Kate Shugak series, this follow-up to McGrath's debut, White Heat, offers a view of the life of Inuits in Alaska. Half-Inuit Edie Kiglatuk is another strong heroine who has a troubled past but tries to do what she can to make things right. I look forward to learning more about what drives her in future books in this series.”
