    I think this novel has been a LONG time coming and I'm glad it's here. Now. My only concern is that this UF series came out so late in the whole UF cycle thing. I needed this a decade ago. I needed a full American Indian mythological romp with Coyote and so many fantastic supernatu...

    While this is only the first book in a series, I?m confident that Trail of Lightning will debut as a top Urban Fantasy book. The writing is absolutely captivating and my eyes were glued to the pages until 2 am in the morning, when I finally got to that climactic ending. Roanhorse doe...

    Okay- I think most of the buddies who were reading this are finished now so I?m going to get my thoughts down before I forget them all. For starters- this is YA/NA and suffers many of the problems I have with YA. The romance for one. I don?t have a problem with romances themselv...

    I think this novel has been a LONG time coming and I'm glad it's here. Now. My only concern is that this UF series came out so late in the whole UF cycle thing. I needed this a decade ago. I needed a full American Indian mythological romp with Coyote and so many fantastic supernatu...

    TRAIL OF LIGHTNING is the first book in The Sixth World series. The world has drowned after a climate apocalypse and the Navajo reservation, now Dinétah has been reborn. It's a new world where gods and heroes walk the land. But, it's also a world filled with monsters. Maggie Hoskie is...

    Okay- I think most of the buddies who were reading this are finished now so I?m going to get my thoughts down before I forget them all. For starters- this is YA/NA and suffers many of the problems I have with YA. The romance for one. I don?t have a problem with romances themselv...

    This was excellent! It straddles the line quite nicely between comfortable urban fantasy, and unique and different- with diversity in cast, and setting, that a lot of us are looking for. For me, the use of the Navajo legends to build the magic and setting was a huge draw and sa...

    Okay- I think most of the buddies who were reading this are finished now so I?m going to get my thoughts down before I forget them all. For starters- this is YA/NA and suffers many of the problems I have with YA. The romance for one. I don?t have a problem with romances themselv...

    I think this novel has been a LONG time coming and I'm glad it's here. Now. My only concern is that this UF series came out so late in the whole UF cycle thing. I needed this a decade ago. I needed a full American Indian mythological romp with Coyote and so many fantastic supernatu...

    A promising debut. The author has done her homework (and life-work!), knows the territory, and her award-winning "AUTHENTIC INDIAN EXPERIENCE" shows off her writing chops. Her heroine is a Monster-Slayer! How cool is that? (OK, it's gory.) Always a pleasure to find a new writer of m...

    What an astonishing tour de force with thrilling action, fascinating characters and a near future vision of America that I've never seen before. Urban fantasy just got a whole new lease on life. The character of Maggie Hoskie grabbed me from the very first page, and her unfinished busi...

    While this is only the first book in a series, I?m confident that Trail of Lightning will debut as a top Urban Fantasy book. The writing is absolutely captivating and my eyes were glued to the pages until 2 am in the morning, when I finally got to that climactic ending. Roanhorse doe...

    One cannot emphasize how important this book is in terms of representation in dystopian/urban fantasy literature. It is one the few UF novels set in America I?ve read where all the characters are poc. L. A. Banks? work is the only other work that springs readily to mind. It is the ...

    Trail of Lightning is clearly one of this summer?s fantasy book ?blockbusters?: fun, fresh, and exciting. This Urban Fantasy takes place on what was once a Navajo reservation in the United States. After the Energy Wars, and multiple terrible natural catastrophes, there?s li...

    I've never read anything by Roanhorse that I didn't like. Completely lives up to the hype, and then some. It's not the sort of book you savor slowly over a few days. You read it all in one shot, and then put it down feeling like you've been hit in the head with a sledgehammer. Than...
