    Wow. I'm kicked in the head from out on left field. I got this through Netgalley based only on its cover and a single word in the blurb, but the tasting and devouring of the novella? SOOOO good. :) What to expect? ANARCHY! Woooh Hooo! The best description I can make is likening ...

    A second installment in this cracking anarcho-horror series, where the supernatural threats barely outweigh the menace of human power systems. It picks up where #1 left off, with a ragtag mob of punk anarchist amateur demon-hunters on the run from a small incident involving multiple mu...

    Danielle and her new friends get messed up in some resurrections occurring in Montana. This is going to be an "I liked it, but" review. I enjoy the viewpoint of the characters - anarchists and travelers - that is very different from my regimented life. Part of the fun of reading fan...

    Hella queer, hella good! Basically Supernatural, but on a whole new level. I very much love all these characters (PROTECT AT ALL COSTS!) and their murderous, witch-y, demon-fighting adventures. "I used to think I wanted a life of adventure. Now I just want to be left alone." #rel...

    I'd like to echo all the reviews I've seen and say that I would happily fill a whole shelf with Danielle Cain novellas! I can't decide what I like more about these books, the world-building of the endless spirits or the character-building of the demon hunting team. This book in particu...

    The Danielle Cain series continues to rock my world - I absolutely devoured this book. I'm already a sucker for the found family trope, and our merry band of punkish misfits continue to support and grow with each other as they continue on the road. And like any road, there's plenty of ...

    A snappy, fantastical plot, intriguing characters, and world building that's impressive for a novella-length work. Killjoy can flat-out write. Very enjoyable. ...

    Ah, how do I even begin? By saying that this series is one of the most amazing thing I've ever read? That I love it so much I'm not sure I can write a proper review without praising it at every sentence? Well, yes, actually I should begin like this. I remember when I read The Lamb ...

    I read the first book in the series in a single sitting. This one is only slightly longer, but I had too many things distracting me, and it took longer ? I think it would be better read at a quick pace since the the forward movement of the plot keeps the more serious elements recogni...

    Anarchist punk demon hunters take on a necromancer from a library being squatted in and run by punks who took it over when the state no longer funded it. It is the second novella about Danielle Cain, continuing in a dark, modern fantasy world in which sorcerous rituals allow us to cont...

    I loved this so much! I loved the first book a touch more for various reasons but dang, this was exactly the followup I wanted. I love forever the way Danielle Cain and the rest of her squad speak, interact and feel, it's so real in a way I don't get to read very often. Also, Margaret ...

    Sequels always have it hard. The aura of new and surprising twists is gone. You're dealing with known quantities. So, I had a hard time getting into Danielle Cain #2. But boy am I glad that I kept going. The idea of Danielle and her friends being demon hunters seemed like a bit of a st...

    Anarchist-run public library that was basically stolen from the state! I love how conscientious Danielle is. I love how her conscientiousness is not the lawful-good version I'm used to. I love Vulture because he's hilarious. This novella is less gory than the first, for what...

    Second in the Danielle Cain series. I definitely think this is one the Tor.com novellas that receives far less attention than it ought. Highly underrated. The characters are really the gems in these novellas. They have almost every gender or sexual orientation, race, etc but never feel...

    My opinion on this book is a bit like my opinion on the first one - where is my character growth? Ostensibly I found out nothing about the gang that I didn't already know in "The Lamb will Slaughter the Lion". There were some nice character moments, like I enjoyed Vulture in this book ...

    Margaret Killjoy delivers in this sequel to "The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion." Our merry band of demon hunters are at it again, and come face to face with another moral crisis. What is a life worth, and how far away is the apocalypse, really? This novella continues everything I lov...

    This book reads true to the "punk" communities I know and love across the US (and indeed the world) which is too rare a thing. (Not quite sure why I put "punk" in quotations, but it's a strange word/concept to write on a screen. Feels forced.) I felt at home in this book. The writi...

    The Danielle Cain series continues to rock my world - I absolutely devoured this book. I'm already a sucker for the found family trope, and our merry band of punkish misfits continue to support and grow with each other as they continue on the road. And like any road, there's plenty of ...

    A snappy, fantastical plot, intriguing characters, and world building that's impressive for a novella-length work. Killjoy can flat-out write. Very enjoyable. ...

    Anarcho-punk fantasy is the genre I didn't know that I needed. In the first Danielle Cain book, readers are introduced to a group of anarchists who get themselves wrapped up in demon hunting. This second book features their first encounter with magical beings after setting out on the r...

    Enjoyed this as a sequel, really liking the set up of the novellas. Self contained problem for each book but with an over arching plot of trying to understand magic in the world while living by anarchist ideals. The characters feel like they're getting a little more fleshed out now ...

    I loved this so much! I loved the first book a touch more for various reasons but dang, this was exactly the followup I wanted. I love forever the way Danielle Cain and the rest of her squad speak, interact and feel, it's so real in a way I don't get to read very often. Also, Margaret ...

    Sequels always have it hard. The aura of new and surprising twists is gone. You're dealing with known quantities. So, I had a hard time getting into Danielle Cain #2. But boy am I glad that I kept going. The idea of Danielle and her friends being demon hunters seemed like a bit of a st...

    Anarchist-run public library that was basically stolen from the state! I love how conscientious Danielle is. I love how her conscientiousness is not the lawful-good version I'm used to. I love Vulture because he's hilarious. This novella is less gory than the first, for what...

    Second in the Danielle Cain series. I definitely think this is one the Tor.com novellas that receives far less attention than it ought. Highly underrated. The characters are really the gems in these novellas. They have almost every gender or sexual orientation, race, etc but never feel...

    A snappy, fantastical plot, intriguing characters, and world building that's impressive for a novella-length work. Killjoy can flat-out write. Very enjoyable. ...

    The Barrow Will Send What it May is the followup to Margaret Killjoy?s first novella in the Danielle Cain series, The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion. The diverse cast of characters that Danielle found herself among at the end of the last book are now on their way across the US, seeking...

    Ah, how do I even begin? By saying that this series is one of the most amazing thing I've ever read? That I love it so much I'm not sure I can write a proper review without praising it at every sentence? Well, yes, actually I should begin like this. I remember when I read The Lamb ...

    I read the first book in the series in a single sitting. This one is only slightly longer, but I had too many things distracting me, and it took longer ? I think it would be better read at a quick pace since the the forward movement of the plot keeps the more serious elements recogni...

    Anarchist punk demon hunters take on a necromancer from a library being squatted in and run by punks who took it over when the state no longer funded it. It is the second novella about Danielle Cain, continuing in a dark, modern fantasy world in which sorcerous rituals allow us to cont...

    After I devoured The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion I was really excited to read another novella by Margaret Killjoy, featuring the punk, queer, homeless, anarchist Danielle Cain, fresh on the road with companions from Freedom, Iowa. They're headed out into the world with the loose idea ...

    Anarcho-punk fantasy is the genre I didn't know that I needed. In the first Danielle Cain book, readers are introduced to a group of anarchists who get themselves wrapped up in demon hunting. This second book features their first encounter with magical beings after setting out on the r...

    Enjoyed this as a sequel, really liking the set up of the novellas. Self contained problem for each book but with an over arching plot of trying to understand magic in the world while living by anarchist ideals. The characters feel like they're getting a little more fleshed out now ...

    I loved this so much! I loved the first book a touch more for various reasons but dang, this was exactly the followup I wanted. I love forever the way Danielle Cain and the rest of her squad speak, interact and feel, it's so real in a way I don't get to read very often. Also, Margaret ...

    Sequels always have it hard. The aura of new and surprising twists is gone. You're dealing with known quantities. So, I had a hard time getting into Danielle Cain #2. But boy am I glad that I kept going. The idea of Danielle and her friends being demon hunters seemed like a bit of a st...

    Second in the Danielle Cain series. I definitely think this is one the Tor.com novellas that receives far less attention than it ought. Highly underrated. The characters are really the gems in these novellas. They have almost every gender or sexual orientation, race, etc but never feel...

    My opinion on this book is a bit like my opinion on the first one - where is my character growth? Ostensibly I found out nothing about the gang that I didn't already know in "The Lamb will Slaughter the Lion". There were some nice character moments, like I enjoyed Vulture in this book ...

    I'd like to echo all the reviews I've seen and say that I would happily fill a whole shelf with Danielle Cain novellas! I can't decide what I like more about these books, the world-building of the endless spirits or the character-building of the demon hunting team. This book in particu...

    I read the first book in the series in a single sitting. This one is only slightly longer, but I had too many things distracting me, and it took longer ? I think it would be better read at a quick pace since the the forward movement of the plot keeps the more serious elements recogni...

    Anarchist punk demon hunters take on a necromancer from a library being squatted in and run by punks who took it over when the state no longer funded it. It is the second novella about Danielle Cain, continuing in a dark, modern fantasy world in which sorcerous rituals allow us to cont...

    After I devoured The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion I was really excited to read another novella by Margaret Killjoy, featuring the punk, queer, homeless, anarchist Danielle Cain, fresh on the road with companions from Freedom, Iowa. They're headed out into the world with the loose idea ...

    Anarcho-punk fantasy is the genre I didn't know that I needed. In the first Danielle Cain book, readers are introduced to a group of anarchists who get themselves wrapped up in demon hunting. This second book features their first encounter with magical beings after setting out on the r...

    Enjoyed this as a sequel, really liking the set up of the novellas. Self contained problem for each book but with an over arching plot of trying to understand magic in the world while living by anarchist ideals. The characters feel like they're getting a little more fleshed out now ...

    I loved this so much! I loved the first book a touch more for various reasons but dang, this was exactly the followup I wanted. I love forever the way Danielle Cain and the rest of her squad speak, interact and feel, it's so real in a way I don't get to read very often. Also, Margaret ...

    Sequels always have it hard. The aura of new and surprising twists is gone. You're dealing with known quantities. So, I had a hard time getting into Danielle Cain #2. But boy am I glad that I kept going. The idea of Danielle and her friends being demon hunters seemed like a bit of a st...

    Anarchist-run public library that was basically stolen from the state! I love how conscientious Danielle is. I love how her conscientiousness is not the lawful-good version I'm used to. I love Vulture because he's hilarious. This novella is less gory than the first, for what...

    Second in the Danielle Cain series. I definitely think this is one the Tor.com novellas that receives far less attention than it ought. Highly underrated. The characters are really the gems in these novellas. They have almost every gender or sexual orientation, race, etc but never feel...

    My opinion on this book is a bit like my opinion on the first one - where is my character growth? Ostensibly I found out nothing about the gang that I didn't already know in "The Lamb will Slaughter the Lion". There were some nice character moments, like I enjoyed Vulture in this book ...

    Margaret Killjoy delivers in this sequel to "The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion." Our merry band of demon hunters are at it again, and come face to face with another moral crisis. What is a life worth, and how far away is the apocalypse, really? This novella continues everything I lov...
