WIND CATCHER is  a suspenseful, wonderfully written story that will capture your attention and hold it prisoner.  A book that you won't want to escape from, Braavva!
-Stephen Fisher, Readers' Favorite Book Reviews

Juliet Wildfire Stone hears voices and sees visions, but she can't make out what they mean.  Her eccentric grandfather tells her stories about the Great Wind Spirit and Coyote, but he might as well be speaking another language.  None of it makes any sense.

When she stumbles upon a series of murders she can't help but worry her grandfather might be involved.  To discover the truth, Juliet must choose between her new life at an elite private school and her Native American heritage.  Once she uncovers and ancient secret society formed over two hundred years ago to keep her safe; she starts to wonder whether there is some truth to those old stories her grandfather has been telling her.

All she wants is to be an average sixteen year old girl, but she has never been average - could never be average.

Betrayed by those she loves, she must decide whether to run or risk everything by fulfilling her destiny as the Chosen.


Jeff Altabef
WIND CATCHER is a joint project between the father/daughter team of Jeff Altabef and Erynn Altabef.  Jeff is an award winning author with two published thrillers.  He has a a column on The Examiner focused on writing and volunteers at the local community college.  Erynn is an avid reader, dancer and community activist who has just earned her Girl Scout Gold Award.  When she's not in high school, she loves reading, performing in school musicals, baking and watching movies with friends.  
WIND CATCHER is about Juliet, the protagonist, who is trying to cope with her double identity, white girl and Native American and yet trying to be one of her white peers.  Juliet begins to learn the values of her Native American inheritance by her grandfather, some very scary and odd things start to happen.  These things take her into another realm. The authors wrote such an interesting book that you don't won't to stop reading.  You want to keep going until the end.This thriller is very unique with a fast paced plot.  You can't seem to turn the pages fast enough.  The characters were very well written and developed.   The relationship between Juliet and her grandfather, Sicheii was very enjoyable.  It's nice to read about good relationships between grandparents and grandchildren.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Native American reads.

I was given a complimentary copy of WIND CATCHER from the authors, Jeff Altabef and Erynn Altabef for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
