A huge shout-out to both Mike Finn - Audiobook Junkie and Chris' Fish Place, whose reviews of this book were so compelling that I couldn't resist picking up Trail of Lightning. I've linked to their reviews - and they are both so well written that they've left me with little to say!
Let me just talk about my reaction to the book. First, reading an own voices book focused on the Native American legendarium was amazing. Roanhouse's world building was so good. The main character, Maggie, was complex, layered, interesting and developed over the course of the book in a way that felt very organic and natural. Kai is a fantastic character, and I can't wait to see where Roanhorse takes his character in the next book.
He'd BETTER be in the next book!
This book would fit right into Halloween bingo, qualifying for Cryptozoologist, A Grimm Tale (Native American folklore/legend), New Release (published 6/26/18), Deadlands (zombie type creatures), Terrifying Women, Supernatural, Doomsday, Spellbound and Shifters.
