Obsidian Tears by Doug Lamoreux & Daniel D. Lamoreux [5 stars]

From the Description
Mother Earth is crying. Yellowstone is dying.

New troubles are stacking up like cordwood for Chief Ranger Glenn Merrill, as Yellowstone’s existence is threatened by earth tremors and an imminent super-volcano. After a series of gruesome deaths claiming animals, tourists, and a ranger, it’s clear that something’s gone terribly wrong at the nation's oldest national park.

But putting an end to these mysterious deaths is more than just the chief ranger’s job
it may be his end.

Obsidian Tears plunges Glenn, his Shoshone friend, an aggressive young seismologist and an Arapaho healer into a world of Indian mysticism. Will man and nature join forces, or risk losing all of humanity to an ancient evil?

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.

Obsidian Tears is the second part of the Apparition Lake series. When I picked it up I expected a good book because I enjoyed Apparition Lake so much. It exceeded my expectations! This is the kind of book that sucks you in until your surprised when you look up to find that you're back in the real world. Filled with intense action, sparkling dialogue and terrifying scenarios the story moves along at a super fast pace and keeps you hooked on every word. I loved revisiting Glenn, Johnny Two Ravens and Snow On The Mountain as they join new friends to face an old terror that threatens not only Yellowstone but people everywhere. I was moved to tears several times as I read because I was so invested in these characters. This one is highly recommended. I wish that I had more than 5 stars to give this phenomenal book!
