Wow, best of the three! I couldn't get enough of Raven and Jude! I've always been a big fan of the Romeo and Juliet theme, and the Kabatay and Matawapit battle between the families and their beliefs and traditions throwing one roadblock after another for this couple took a lot of twists and turns and didn't disappoint. More importantly, once again gave healthy food for thought on how to respect others and learn to disagree in love, reminding us that we are all ultimately of the one family of man ...more

Their traditions and different ways of life are fascinating. Jude and Raven’s romance is a sweet ride with some heat. I liked how the romance balanced well with the story of the clans.

Author Maggie Blackbird’s MATAWAPIT FAMILY series is chocked with intense, multilayered plot lines entrenching enough to hook any reader. From spirituality to taboo relationships, substance abuse to criminal activity, these books detail the raw realities of those living in the Ojibway community.

In SANCTIFIED, the third installment of the series, Maggie does not disappoint as she masterfully creates yet another character’s struggle to earn familial redemption, career success, and most importantly

The stakes are super high in this family enemies to lovers story, where it's clear that one has to lose big in the external conflict and will necessitate some kind of betrayal. The story, though, tends to back off when it gets to these points and doesn't go in for the angst, which frustrated my expectations a bit.

To me, though, the strength of the book is in the really fascinating interplay between Jude and Raven's respective religions, how they negotiate them individually and together and in t

Can they be together when they are so far apart?

Sanctified is the third book in the Matawapit Family series and is Jude and Raven's story. Jude and Raven are on opposite sides in the political battleground for chief of the Ojibway tribe and their love is forbidden.

It is interesting to see the differences between the two Ojibway families and the traditional versus the non-traditional way. This story is well written, emotional, and compelling with the focus on the indigenous community in northern

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Maggie Blackbird; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Book three in The Matawapit Family Series, and the stories are just getting more intense with each new book. This is Jude Matawapit the oldest son of Decan Matawapit who is divorced and Raven Kabatay the two families are sworn enemies. I enjoyed reading this story.
