The Obsidian MirrorThe Obsidian Mirror by K.D. Keenan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Obsidian Mirror is a fantasy surrounding Native American mythology and mixing it with modern day environmental issues. Sierra Carter has just been fired from her job in PR at Black Diamond a company who make silicon conductors.

She then finds herself chosen by mythical Gods to help save the planet. Given magical feathers, a guide called Chaco who can morph into a coyote and befriended by a creature called a Mannegishi, Sierra is taken to meet an ancient God known as Quetzalcoatl. He sends her on a mission to wipe out the evil that Black Diamond is spreading around the world.

I enjoyed learning about the Native American mythology and the healers who helped Sierra. In places the book slowed with the environmental issues and domestic scenes too much for me. Chaco and Fred were well written characters as was Mama Labadie, but I didn’t always feel a connection to Sierra’s character.
