REVIEW: Fire Keeper’s Daughter

“It’s your identity, but it gets defined or controlled by other people.”


“The stilettos aren’t fme shoes. They are fyou shoes.”


What can I say about Fire Keeper’s Daughter?! I loved it! It’s Sadie meets Winter Counts and is full of gorgeous tribal stories and traditions weaved into a modern teen’s world. Daunis is transitioning from high school to college while balancing the politics of her heritage (half white and half Obijwe) while trying to figure out how meth is so suddenly killing off her friends. She goes from a hopeful teen to a ruthless CI trying to save her tribe and find herself in the process.

Daunis was everything you want in a heroine, she was strong, passionate, opinionated, kindhearted, clever and proud. Her love for her tribe and her family was so inspiring to read. She had the emotional ups and downs of a teenager but did her best to be wise and practical when faced with situations that should have absolutely floored her. The turns of the story will break your heart but her resilience will make you proud.

It was one of those reads where I was literally pacing myself because I don’t want it to end. This is the perfect read if you’re looking to be wholly entertained, solve a mystery and diversify your shelves. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this novel. All opinions above are my own.
