The Moon Tells Secrets by Savanna Welles

 "Don't trust nobody. Not family. Not friend. Don't let it get him like it got my son, not until he is ready to meet it. And remember that blood must pay for blood. A debt must be paid. Your boy can never forget. That is his destiny."

Raine is at her wits' end. Her eleven-year-old son, Davey, whom she has raised by herself, has the power to shapeshift into any animal—a "gift" from his dead father. As Raine struggles to control his abilities that are so clearly out of her realm, a darker threat moves closer—a skinwalker bent on killing Raine and Davey. But even if the skinwalker doesn't succeed, someone closer to Raine will become just as vicious…

Cade, still grieving the brutal murder of his wife, finds solace in Raine's companionship. But as the savage details of her death mirror the powers Davey is soon to have, Raine will have to fight to protect her son…
I’m not sure how to word this review.  I tried to like this book, but it just didn’t work for me. The switching POV from 1st to 3rd is one of my pet peeves.  So, that made it hard for me to want to read this book.

The good points about this book are the character development - seeing Davey’s transformation as he gains power and knowledge was great.  I love the tie in between the paranormal world and the Navajo History. That sets this apart from other paranormal/Urban Fantasy books.  I felt sadness for Cade and Raine’s losses. I was scared and concerned for Davey and his future. I was never on the edge of my seat, though, and couldn’t stay focused on the story until the end.

If you’re looking for a unique story with Native American History in an Urban Fantasy world, give it a try.
