"fans of the series will enjoy"
In 1843, naturalist Daniel Tolliver dies from a fever at
Fort Meyers near the Utah-Wyoming border. Daniel and his
daughter Dayanara were searching for the "monster bones" at
the request of their former employer the Smithsonian
Institute. Partially out of honoring her beloved father
and just because she is intrigued, Dayanara continues the
Dayanara rescues Little Fox, a white boy raised by
Indians. He takes her to the sacred grounds to show her
the dinosaur bones. His father Cree Chief Quick Fox is
irate that a white desecrates holy grounds, but recognizes
the golden haired woman as the person haunting his dreams and
visions. As Dayanara and Quick Fox fall in love, society
taboos pressure both to end their relationship before it
can truly form.
Though Cassie Edwards has used the underlying theme of star
crossed lovers consisting of an Indian and a white about
thirty times, the prehistorical remains provide somewhat of
a fresh twist to these old bones. The lead couple is a
charming pair albeit a bit too perfect in a world that
loathes interracial mating. Still, fans of the series will
enjoy the latest Cassie Edwards' entry.
