She finds that she and her snake-invoking, storm-gathering, demented twins are byproducts of Dustin's research.Then the new weapon returns and really hits the fan.Naomi turns to Dustin in the inimical world of the Navajo reservation. In the wars that follow they must finally destroy everything his weapon has let loose on the world. Perhaps even themselves.____________________________Naomi asked, "Will these clamps hold the acid off their skin?""If these men sit very still.

"Yes.""If either of them moves, blow off his nuts.""OK.""Just pull the trigger.""OK.""You can get sick afterword."It is 1965: there's war in Vietnam. In Berkeley, a chemist touts the use of his new weapon without crediting his Navajo partner. A simple whiff of Peacspore, he claims, will turn people kind, peaceful, cooperative and smart.

She lives on the run, hounded by Federal agents and made pregnant by its brilliant Navajo co-inventor. Someone else wants Naomi too, and whoever he is, is crazy enough to bring about the end of the world to get her. Peacspore has made her a monster...but her loving twins, and their lovable spawn, are really scary.No Reservation takes the reader on a supernatural thrill rideall the way to the stunning finish.
