Banished. Cast out. Powerless. Y’keta is exiled to the small village of Esquialt as his father's punishment for his rebellious spirit. Village tradition gives him one Cycle, from spring to spring, to earn the right to stay.
The villagers have a legend about mighty beings called the Waki'tani, mythical lords of the wind and lightning who can shapeshift into human form. Y'keta knows the truth behind these stories. Could there be more to them than just tales shared around the campfire?
If Y'keta reveals what he knows to the villagers, it will tear their history and traditions apart...but sharing his secrets may be their only hope for survival when Esquialt is threatened by the brutal, ferociously destructive Utlaak.
Loosely based on the Thunderbird of North American legend, Y'keta is an epic fantasy set in an ancient world where legends walk and the Sky Road offers a way to the stars.
It's a quiet, moonlit night when Jackson Bartlett stops at a convenience store on his way to his cabin and crosses paths with the russet-haired firebrand, Mina Jensen, and her quirky little sister, Kylie.
After rescuing them from a werewolf, Jack discovers dark and creepy things are drawn to Kylie like moths to a flame. Battling otherworldly creatures at Mina's side, he desperately tries to untangle the mystery of Kylie's true identity before it's too late.
The Reckoning, the first book in the series Tabitha Grimshaw's Dark and Enchanted Tales: The Jackson Bartlett Journals, is pages of supernatural thrills filled with bloody battles, offbeat romance, heartfelt humor, gripping mystery, and valiant sacrifice. Read sample chapters...
