5.0 out of 5 stars Firekeeper Shines with Resilience & Hope
Reviewed in Canada on March 19, 2021
What a journey I’ve been on in this book. It was hard to put down and I often found myself engaged into the story longer than I meant to be - causing late meals and late bedtimes! I’ve learned so much. This book weaves in Indigenous culture & traditions, a crime mystery, and the strength of women. While I do love a good crime novel, it is the way Angeline Boulley shines a light to educating the reader about Indigenous communities, culture, language and traditions. While the book also reveals the negative effects colonization has had in Indigenous communities, resilience and hope is strong in Boulley’s words and through the story of Daunis, the young Firekeeper. I am a white settler and a teacher in Canada, on Treaty 4, and while the book’s setting is in an Indigenous community in the US, the learning and unlearning that I experienced in reading this novel is one that I’ll take with me in my community and into my classrooms. I’ll be sitting with what I’ve read and I’ll definitely be reading this book again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful and emotional to the end
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 7, 2022
Daunis is 18 and dealing with a lot of conflicting issues. She is of mixed-race which has left her feeling like an outsider, never truly belonging anywhere. She doesn’t fit in with her hometown people and is never properly welcomed or made to feel part of her Ojibwe tribe. As the sole witness to the harrowing and devastating murder of her best friend, she reluctantly agrees to help the undercover FBI agents who are investigating the crime, its ties to the illegal drug trade and several unsolved murder cases on the reservation. The deeper they delve into the origins of the mystery drug causing the deaths the closer the connection becomes to Daunis' family.

The local hockey is backed by wealthy boosters but not everything is above board. As Daunis looks closer she sees that there is a darker and more sinister power controlling things behind the scenes. As Daunis follows the orders of the FBI agents she is assigned to, she also decides to investigate things in her way. Utilising her skills in traditional tribal medicine and the chemistry knowledge she was thought by her uncle who died in tragic circumstances, she begins to uncover the origins of the drugs and the connection to the reservation.

Will Daunis protect her community from these deadly threats and will she prove to everyone that she is a true strong Anishinaabe kwe (Ojibwe woman) though she might save her people but destroy herself in the process. Will her growing closeness to one of the FBI agents hamper the operation and end with them both being killed?

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. A tense, thrilling and tough read. So many topics and issues were explored which made it a deep and fascinating narrative to read. Daunis was a strong, independent young woman and I was impressed with how she dealt with all the hardships in her life and still strove to make life better for others. I found the Native American aspects of the story compelling and they offered a different side to that community that I hadn’t read before. Suspenseful and emotional to the end. I highly recommend this story.
