“Mateguas Island” by Linda Watkins is a fantastic, suspenseful read. The book is filled with Native American lore and legend, and I found it absolutely fascinating how the author wove the tales in with tradition. The informational part of the book wasn’t cumbersome, but supplemented the plot incredibly well. The characters are well developed and relatable. Their evolution throughout the book is believable and I could understand every move they made, even if I was shouting at them not to do it! The book includes plenty of suspense, thrills, mystery, and even horror. I truly enjoyed every minute of this book!
