On December 26, 1862, thirty -eight full-blooded and mixed blood Sioux Indians were hanged in Minnesota for various crimes against white settlers during what was known as the Great Sioux Uprising. The crimes were in retaliation for corrupt and questionable actions on the part of the government concerning treaties that were not honored. The hangings are known as the largest mass execution in United States history.

Deep within the tiny town of Moccasin Flats lies a sinister past that has threatened the lives of its inhabitants for over 140 years. A legendary curse spoken from the gallows in 1862 is the only clue to the murders that go unsolved.

Kyle is a 7th generation Ghostkiller whose ancestor was convicted and hanged during the Great Sioux Uprising. With the fate of the town resting in his hands, Kyle returns to Moccasin Flats after a long absence only to find himself accused of the latest murders and his jilted,childhood sweetheart sabotaging his every move.

The time has arrived for Kyle to face the dreaded curse head on, which pits him against dark forces. It's a fierce battle between good and evil; which will win?

Can the help of his uncle and a seasoned police officer save Ghostkiller from the hangman's noose and forever alter history for all Plains Indians?

Scattered Leaves had me at the first few paragraphs where Prince creates the mystery of the haunting leaves and lets your imagination run with thoughts of the paranormal and the presence of spirit! The fact that true historical facts were used and intertwined with fiction makes it more of a high interest. The feeling tone is is a wow factor here as you not only feel each emotion for each character but feel a deep sadness for the despair that the Native Americans had to endure. One of the supporting characters here becomes a Round character and I love how he evolves into this brave soul that also has to help the main character save Mocassin Flats from the curse.The love story is written with such passion it touches you to the core. This story had me excited to do research on the 1862 Sioux Uprising due to Prince's strong point of view on the subject. I can only say I cannot wait until the next series!
