Review- Puha by J. Bradley Van Tighem

I received an e copy of Puha by J. Bradley Van Tighem from storycartel.com in exchange for an honest review.

I haven't read a good Indian/Native American tale in many years. I loved how the author showed the growth of Hollow Leg/Many Wolves/Wild Man/. There was plenty of action and adventure. I loved the relationships between Many Wolves, his hawks, the wolf Rojo and his friend Ten Arrows. The character Laughing Crow was well fleshed out. In the beginning, he was a cruel man who cared only about power. Throughout the story, he became more humanized. He was still cruel, but he did care
for those close to him, especially his sons. There is violence in the story, but I think it enhanced the story and was a necessary part of the plot.

Overall, Puha was an entertaining read that I would highly recommend and I look forward to reading the next book.

Pros: very detailed, interesting characters
Cons: Some of the hunting scenes were a bit repetitive and there are a lot of characters to keep up with.
