Put It to Rest by Erin Mullahy 

Recommended by Kristin DeGuzman, graphic designer: “In this story of magical realism, Helen learns of her connection to Uncegila — the water monster of Lakota legend. Only she can put the beast to rest, but it means she must choose to stand in her power rather than remain in her solitary life. This novel is a fast-paced, quick read full of suspense, fantasy, and horror.”
