I loved Firekeeper’s Daughter. It was a gripping, fast-paced thriller that is balanced out with slower moments of character development. Firekeeper’s Daughter teaches so much about Ojibwe culture in an interesting way that doesn’t affect the pacing. The characters felt so real and I loved watching Daunis, the protagonist, grow throughout the story. Although I personally thought everything potentially triggering was dealt with sensitively, I would still recommend looking up content warnings before reading this book, as it brings up heavy topics that aren’t mentioned in the blurb. Overall, I flew through this novel and would highly recommend.
