Storm of Locusts
Storm of Locusts | Rebecca Roanhorse
Kai and Caleb Goodacre have been kidnapped just as rumors of a cult sweeping across the reservation leads Maggie and Hastiin to investigate an outpost, and what they find there will challenge everything theyve come to know in this action-packed sequel to Trail of Lightning. Its been four weeks since the bloody showdown at Black Mesa, and Maggie Hoskie, Din monster hunter, is trying to make the best of things. Only her latest bounty hunt has gone sideways, shes lost her only friend, Kai Arviso, and shes somehow found herself responsible for a girl with a strange clan power. Then the Goodacre twins show up at Maggies door with the news that Kai and the youngest Goodacre, Caleb, have fallen in with a mysterious cult, led by a figure out of Navajo legend called the White Locust. The Goodacres are convinced that Kais a true believer, but Maggie suspects theres more to Kais new faith than meets the eye. She vows to track down the White Locust, then rescue Kai and make things right between them. Her search leads her beyond the Walls of Dintah and straight into the horrors of the Big Water world outside. With the aid of a motley collection of allies, Maggie must battle body harvesters, newborn casino gods and, ultimately, the White Locust himself. But the cult leader is nothing like she suspected, and Kai might not need rescuing after all. When the full scope of the White Locusts plans are revealed, Maggies burgeoning trust in her friends, and herself, will be pushed to the breaking point, and not everyone will survive.

Picking up not long after the events in book one, Storm of Locusts is an equally fast-paced read full of adventure, wry humor, and fantastic mythology.

My only quibble is the publisher did a poor job with editing, at least in the e-book format. So many little grammatical mistakes. It doesn't wreck the story but it's sloppy and inexcusable for a big name publisher.

I'm reading by oil lamp this evening, while everyone else sleeps around me in the livingroom. Hurricane Dorian is still wreaking its havoc outside, the power hasbeen out since mid-afternoon, and we distracted the boys with a family sleep over in the livingroom. I've had lots of time to read today, and I'm not ready to put it down yet. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! #WhenTheTitleSuitsTheWeather

Grabbing a little mommy time before I need to get supper ready. I've been anxiously awaiting this book to come in from the library, and the timing couldn't have been better. I wasn't sure I'd recall enough of the previous book. It dove right back into the action, and I'm all in. #SixthWorld #ThisSeriesIsSoGood

I enjoyed this book, but I suspect there are many nuances I am missing or not understanding because of lack of cultural knowledge. I highly recommend this and first book if you like dystopia, kick ass female, Native American folklore and culture, Supernatural. #bfcr3 and I‘m finally catching up with my #booked2019 Spring challenge (Native American Author) @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

The sequel to Trail of Lightning is a fast-paced adventure in an interesting post-apocalypse world. Roanhorse refers to her creation as “a solid bitch” and dedicates this volume “to all the women who are hard to love, and to the people who love them anyway,” and part of me was very “She‘s not that bad!” But she does remind me a bit of Nyx from Hurley‘s Bel Dame Apocalypse series... so maybe she is that bad. In a good way.

So I like the post-apocalyptic world Rebecca Roanhorse has built and I obviously like the three emotionally stunted badass female protagonists who really drive this book but something just didn‘t sit this one firmly in the “love it” category for me. The final showdown felt incredibly rushed and I had questions that weren‘t remotely addressed but as book 2 in a series I guess I should have expected those things.

The second book in the Sixth World series picks up just four weeks after the climax of Trail of Lightning and finds Kai missing, apparently under the sway of the White Locust, who is stockpiling explosives. Like the first book, this one is well-paced with good action and adds to the world-building of the world after the Big Water. Even though this just came out, I can't wait for the next one. Recommended.

I‘m a fan of this series, and number 2 didn‘t disappoint.

The big flood that destroyed most of the world also gave rise to the gods & monsters of Navajo legend, & clan powers to some. Monster hunter Maggie Hoskie has survived Black Mesa, but a new monster is on the loose in Dinétah. To find the person she loves Maggie will have to team up with friends against body harvesters & a powerful cult.

I feel odd about these books. I enjoy the use of lore and the setting, but the actual characters and story feel a bit par for the rather grim course. It's a fast read and it's great to see a set up that isn't all white people, but. Hm. I just don't love it.

Finally got my hands on the sequel in this post apocalyptic series enriched with Navajo folklore. This time, Maggie, a Diné monster hunter, comes up against an evil that takes her beyond the Wall, where she walks with gods and legends and tries to save her home from a catastrophic flood. I have an abiding affection for well written anti-heroines, so not only did this check that but it worked for
