Review: Light in the Mountain Sky by Misty M. Beller

Book Three in the Call of the Rockies series

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


Determined to prove her worth, Meksem fiercely fought to earn her place among the warriors in her Nez Perce camp. When her half-sister is captured by an enemy tribe, she refuses to trust the rescue to anyone else. But her new friends insist on joining her mission, and she battles between relief and frustration at their presence. Especially the white man who peers at her as if he can see through the face of the warrior she struggles so hard to maintain.

Spaniard Adam Vargas thrives on adventure wherever his travels take him. He’s fallen in love with this Rocky Mountain wilderness, as well as the spotted horses the Nez Perce tribe raise. His fascination with this Indian maiden-turned-warrior catches him off guard though, including the way she seems to be fighting for more than her sister’s safe return.

The journey proves more perilous than any of the group expects, and the secret Meksem hides becomes impossible to conceal. If they live through this mission, the life they knew will never be the same again.

My Review

I've enjoyed the adventure in this series and the author's trademark hostile wilderness setting. We've followed a group of friends as they traveled to find Adam, with three women joining along the way. I've eagerly anticipated learning Adam's story and what compelled him to search after the elusive spotted horses. His biggest flaw is how impetuous he is! Sometimes it works in his favor, but more often than not it brings difficulties and complications since he acts single-mindedly before considering the possible consequences. Meksam is a stalwart female warrior, but inside she is a hot mess of suppressed emotions and tragic memories. She internalizes her grief and it influences her outlook on life and her decisions. They are a disparate pair, but the consideration and compassion they show each other indicates deep feelings and a partnership that defies their different worlds. Their journey is filled with harshness and danger, tempered with spiritual longings and growth, and I'd expect nothing less from this author!
