Bhotta's Tears

"J.D. Lakey's story shines with beautiful writing, a creative plotline, and vivid characterizations. It is a joy to read." - S. Harrison, Top 1000 Reviewer and Vine Voice Life under the dome is simple. Work hard, follow the rules, be safe, do what is expected of you and you will be rewarded. Easy. But the Blackwind Pack has two problems: Tam - the alpha - aspires to greatness, and Cheobawn - his Black Bead Ear - is profoundly gifted, with a psi ability so advanced the elders of the village have yet to understand it. Following their nearly disastrous first foray together outside the dome, the newly-formed Blackwind pack is just getting used to their new lives together, and their bonds continue to strengthen. But Cheobawn can feel something ominous about to happen, something that will put her entire village and everyone she loves in mortal danger. A creature has climbed the Escarpment and now wanders in the southern forests. She knows she must find it before the elders get wind of its presence and go hunting it with deadly intent. But her pack would never let her go alone. Together, they set out on a dangerous race toward an unknown enemy, hoping Cheobawn can find a way to save not only their way of life, but their very existence on the lush, savage planet they call home. The epic adventure that began with "Black Bead" continues in Bhotta's Tears. Journey along as Cheobawn unravels the mysteries embedded in the deceptively bucolic life of her village under the dome.

About the Author

Born on the high plains of Montana and raised wild in a silent land surrounded by infinite horizons, essayist, philosopher and author of many short stores, J.D. Lakey goes back to her roots with her first book. Her lyrical writing style and passionate connection to her characters pull you in and take you on an emotional journey of discovery in a world where futuristic technologies reside amidst primordial landscapes.


"Cheobawn is a girl who, since age three, as been seen by her tribe as a child of chaos, a possible bringer of bad luck. The black bead in her necklace marks her as such. But is she truly different, or has she become different because how she is treated? Cheobawn is definitely an independent little girl, a bit of an iconoclast, but it soon becomes apparent that she has very unique skills that are not necessarily appreciated or even tolerated by the adults in her life. I thought that Bhotta's Tears was going to be a fairly basic "coming of age" story, wherein a misunderstood child is shown to have heroic qualities, but it is much more than that. JD Lakey's story shines with beautiful writing, a creative plotline, and vivid characterizations. Even animals shine with rich inner lives and distinct personalities. It is a joy to read. JD Lakey is an author to watch." - S. Harrisson, Top 1000 Reviewer, Vine Voice "I read this in one sitting, the day after finishing "Black Bead." I would put this author in a league with some of my favorite science fiction writers, like Ursula Le Guin or Orson Scott Card. Excellent writing, enthralling story. I am definitely a fan, and can't wait for the next book to come out!" - Kim Shank, Reviewer
