Rose Petal Graves (The Lost Clan Book 1) by Olivia Wildenstein Narrated by Stephanie Fritz.



I wasn't the type of girl who believed in fairytales, much less tales about faeries, but that changed the day the fae walked into my life.

Staying away from my lakeside hometown was the plan, but Mom died suddenly. Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient Native American graves in our backyard.

Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.

As we made preparations for her burial, unnervingly odd and beautiful newcomers poured into my small town. A coroner with emerald eyes and black hair, much too young for the job. An arrogant blond socialite, who lived to get under my skin. And a tattooed Native man, who wasn’t supposed to be alive.

By dying, my mother had inadvertently revived an age-old feud between the fae and the tribe that hunted them.

A feud that was about to tear my world apart.

I quite liked this book overall. The fusion of fairy lore and Native American legends was quite a unique and very interesting premise. It certainly caught my attention and imagination. The world-building was good and the magic system was explained well.
The insta-love triangle that seemed to develop didn't do it for me. I couldn't see the chemistry between the characters and I would have liked to see more of Catori establish herself as a force to be reckoned with rather than a pawn of hunter and fae. Maybe she will understand her role better in the next book. I am interested enough to find out and I am looking forward to reading/listening to it.
