From the New York Times bestselling author Mercedes Lackey comes contemporary fantasy Sacred Ground―now back in print!
Jennifer Talldeer is Osage and Cherokee, granddaughter of a powerful Medicine Man. She walks a difficult path: contrary to tribal custom, she is learning a warrior’s magics. A freelance private investigator, Jennifer tracks down stolen Native American artifacts.
The construction of a new shopping mall uncovers fragments of human bone, revealing possible desecration of an ancient burial ground. Meanwhile, the sabotage of construction equipment at the site implicates many activists―particularly Jennifer’s old flame, who is more attractive and dangerous than ever. Worst of all, the grave of Jennifer’s legendary Medicine Man ancestor has been destroyed, his tools of power scattered, and a great evil freed to walk the land.
Jennifer must make peace with the many factions and solve the mystery of her ancestor’s grave before the world falls into oblivion.
“Skillfully weaving a tale of fantasy, mystery, and Native American folklore, Lackey has written a unique novel sure to appeal to YAs.”–School Library Journal
