Seventeen-year-old Anna Horn is always looking over her shoulder. For the bullies who torment her, for the entitled tourists who visit her Tribe’s casino and resort…and for the disembodied entity that stalks her every step—an ancient tribal myth come-to-life, one that’s intent on devouring her whole.
With strange and sinister happenings occurring around the casino, Anna starts to suspect that not all the horrors on the Takoda Reservation are old. As girls begin to go missing and the Tribe scrambles to find answers, Anna struggles with her place on the rez, desperately searching for the key she’s sure lies in the legends of her Tribe’s past.

When Anna’s own little sister disappears, Anna will do anything to bring her home. But the demons plaguing the reservation—both ancient and new—are strong, and sometimes, it’s the stories that never get told that are the most important.

Part gripping thriller and part mythological horror, Sisters of the Lost Nation is an incisive and timely novel of life as an outcast, the cost of forgetting tradition, and the courage it takes to become who you were always meant to be.

“With the excellent Sisters of the Lost Nation, Nick Medina expertly balances Native mythology, a grounded coming of age story, and a modern, all too real and terrible mystery of Native girls going missing. Gripping, heartbreaking, and vital, this is a novel you won't soon forget, and Anna Horn will no doubt become one of your most cherished fictional characters.”
