Land of Echoes is the second in the Lucretia (Cree) Black series. While lecturing in New Mexico, Cree is approached to consult on the case of a very sick student, Tommy Keeday. Tommy is a talented student and artist at a boarding school for gifted Navajo teens who has suddenly become afflicted with an illness no one understands.
In desperation the founder and principal of the school, Julieta McCarty seeks help from Cree, who is a paranormal investigator to try to solve the problem. Tommy is displaying numerous odd symptoms which the doctors at the hospital believe to be a somewhat drastic psychological problem, while the Navajo’s believe he has been inhabited by a hostile spirit from the past.
The main characters have quite a bit of history themselves along with the area where the school is situated. Therefore, Cree’s job is increasingly difficult. Although she detects much paranormal activity in the area, it is very hard for her to try to pinpoint what might entity might be affecting Tommy.
The book is filled with vivid descriptions of the area and wonderful characters. I would highly recommend this book to others who enjoy mysteries with a supernatural twist to them. I look forward to reading more in the Cree Black series.
