This was a really great read ÛÒ full of action, bloodshed, excitement and heroism. It moves at a fast pace and I felt I was transported back to a time when nature ruled the pace of living. Siki is a very believable character with an authentic narration. ( )

After fourteen-year-old Siki witnesses her families’ murder, she turns to the path of the warrior to get revenge, a rare choice for an Apache girl. As she becomes more proficient as an Apache warrior, she faces the dual challenges of the enmity of a fellow young Apache warrior and the mysterious, possibly dishonorable circumstances surrounding her father’s death. This is a work of historical fiction and parts of the story are loosely based on actual events. The author admits that she was not trying be completely true to history although she has tried to stay mostly authentic in the details of the time period and Landman does supply a list of resources she consulted in writing the book. Despite any historical inaccuracies, it is an excellent glimpse into what life would have been like for an Apache girl living on the edge of Mexico as the white man began to covet and steal the Apache’s land. Siki is a clever, proud, and determined protagonist despite being a bit dense when it comes to things like romance. This book does deal with a few mature themes such as revenge, death, and war so it would be more suited to girls 13 and up. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763636649, Hardcover)

A young woman seeks to avenge her brother's death by becoming an Apache warrior — and learns a startling truth about her own identity.

After watching helplessly as Mexican raiders brutally murder her little brother, fourteen-year-old Siki is filled with a desire for vengeance and chooses to turn away from a woman's path to become a warrior of her Apache tribe. Though some men, like envious Keste, wish to see Siki fail, she passes test after test, and her skills grow under the guidance of her tribe's greatest warrior, Golahka. But Keste begins to whisper about Siki's father's dishonorable death, and even as Siki earns her place among the warriors, she senses a dark secret in her past — one that will throw into doubt everything she knows. Taking readers on a sweeping and suspenseful journey through the nineteenth-century American Southwest, Tanya Landman draws on historical accounts to imagine the Black Mountain Apache as a tribe in a fight for survival against the devastating progress of nations.
