The stories told around the campfire taught us of legends—tales of demons and heroes. I thought they were only stories, but I was wrong. They were warnings.
My name is Pamoon and until recently I lived a normal life. Well, as normal as it could be growing up on a Cree reservation. My birth mom left me on the steps of the reservation medical center when I was just an infant. Being Cree is all I’ve ever known and all I ever wanted to be.
My life changed the night my friends disappeared. They vanished while reciting a ritual they didn’t understand. That’s when I found out the truth of who I was, or who I was supposed to be. I discovered that I am the subject of one of the stories the elders told: the story of a sixteen-year-old girl, whose skin is as white as winter’s snow, come to send demons back to the Netherworld. Come to save a nation.
That’s when I found out I was more than just a girl. I was to become a goddess. If my friends have any chance of being found, it’s up to me . . . me and Scout, my wolf cub. But I’m going to need help, help only the spirits can provide. I don’t know if I’m up to the task, but what choice do I have?
Instead of listening to me babble on, come and hear the entire story. The story of the Kiche—the Sky Spirit Goddess. My story.
