I read this as part of my Norton finalist packet.

What a fantastic YA book! Elatsoe has an urban fantasy vibe, kinda, but spins everything in a brilliant, original way. A big reason for that is the dynamic, smart heroine, Elatsoe aka Ellie. She's still a high schooler but she has big dreams of becoming a paranormal PI. She knows the paranormal well, as she was raised on the stories of her incredible Lipan Apache ancestress Six-Great, and her near-constant companion is the ghost of her beloved dog, who she raised herself. When her cousin is in a terrible car accident, he reaches out in a dream to tell her this was no accident, but murder. Ellie goes along with her parents to take care of her cousin's widow, and finds herself investigating not the murderer but an entire creepy town.

I loved how smart this book was. Ellie is a kid, sure, but she is competent, and she is respected for her competence by her parents and those who know her. That is so refreshing! That doesn't take away from the tension in the book, either, because Ellie still has a lot to learn. This is a story packed with twists and turns, and the world Little Badger established is endlessly fascinating. I mean, I tend to avoid books with vampires because I feel they have been so overdone, but the way they come across here feels fresh and new, and I LOVED a scene where Ellie and her mom banish an unwelcome vampire.

I hope there are more books set in this world. I would love to visit here again! ( )

"You okay?" Ellie asked. She shone her flashlight on the climber. It illuminated his backside, an awkward angle. The butt did look familiar. ( )

This book had such potential! I just couldn't get lost in its crazy/mish mosh/over saturated world. It had a lot going on like: vampires, ghosts, ghost whisperers, ghost pets (including a temperamental ghost dinosaur) bat people, coyote people and a nefarious, devilish deviant, most likely immortal, (human?) antagonist. Sounds pretty entertaining right? Nope! What a letdown. Now, I can't say with 100% certainty that this book doesn't deliver at the end because I threw in the towel ~ the 47% mark... but life's too short to spend time on a mediocre (imo) read when my TBR is begging for my attention.

This could be a case of It's Not You It's Me but I am too bored to find out.

Oh this was SO SO GOOD. The worldbuilding was just bonkers good--all kinds of magic going on, this balance of Lipan Apache knowledge (and refusal to share knowledge where it's not appropriate to share) and other knowledges and culture, the GHOST CREATURES, VAMPIRES, MAGIC, all of it was just so good. There was a part where I threw the book down and had to pace because it was SO GOOD AND SO CREATIVE AND I'D NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT LIKE THAT BEFORE. Just so good, such a beautiful story and I had such a good time reading it, I couldn't put it down. ( )
