“Houck's first novel is part Indiana Jones, and part fairy tale… she tells a good story that will keep readers turning pages.” --Booklist “One of the best books I have ever read. An ultimate thrill ride. A roller-coaster ride from the beginning to end, this book has action, history, poetry, romance, magic- everything you could ever want. A book with so much passion and thrills you won't be able to put it down. This saga is going to be one of the best yet.” --RT Book Review “Houck has clearly done a great deal of research on Indian culture, and she is adept at including details that allow readers to understand the story's setting…Twilight fans will appreciate the supernatural, star-crossed romance.” --School Library Journal “A smart, vibrant adventure romance wrapped in a quest…takes the protagonists through adventures that would make Steven Spielberg proud…Full of danger, dash, allegory, and love under the banana tree.” -Kirkus Reviews
