I am definitely curious where this is going. It is not a premise that is at all familiar to me, which automatically makes me want to read it. I appreciate the fact that he is tying in Native legends and myths, as well as modern struggles tied to reservation life. These are important issues and stories that aren't told nearly enough. When every other horror movie or book seems to be a rehash, this kind of new territory is undoubtedly refreshing. It's helped all the more by Jones' command of language and ability to paint evocative scenes without beating you over the head with detail. His writing is rich and layered and is worth reading for its own sake. I want to read it primarily because it already feels like a book that will turn out to be a transformative experience.
