    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...

    I have been excited for this book ever since I found about it ? and it did not disappoint me at all. Rebecca Roanhorse has created a seriously cool, very much needed different Urban Fantasy here that makes me very excited for what is to come. Living in a post-apocalyptic Dinétah ...

    4.5 stars and going on my list of favourite reads for 2018. Trail of Lightning was one of my most anticipated books in 2018, and happily, it did not disappoint. A few months ago I read Roanhorse's most amazing short story, Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience, and it made me ...

    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...

    A dystopic urban fantasy set in a future where a good part of the world has drowned, resources are scarce and violently fought over, monsters and supernatural entities of various nature prowl around, with a Native American heroine written for a change by a Native American author? GIMME...

    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...

    Loved this, can't wait for the sequel, GIVE ME MORE KAI AND MAGS (SORRY, MAGGIE) ...

    I had an incredibly hard time sorting out my feelings on this book and I don?t know if I can say that I succeeded. There are many aspects of it that I absolutely loved, but also ones that I really disliked. And the two overlap one another, leaving me conflicted and with a frown line ...

    Mad Max: Fury Road. Native American cast. Hunt for monsters. I have only 3 words: PLEASE BE GOOD. ...

    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...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review and lots of fangirling can be found on *Milky Way of Books* If you've been following my reading progress then you know why I am going to rant about this book. As a historian with a tiny obsession with mythol...

    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...

    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 ...

    Very well written with strong narrative voice. Immersive, original and engaging. Longer review will probably come soon but in case it doesn't (because I'm lazy / too busy with work) the hype is real, guys. It's worth trying. ...

    I got this book from the author through a Give Away and I'm so excited! I wanted to sit down and read this is one sitting but life kept getting in the way. This just meant I got to savor every moment of the journey. A lot of people are describing this as a Mad Max Fury Road esque book ...

    First, a confession: I haven't been reading much in the UF genre lately, outside of the established series I?ve been following for years. Mostly though I?ve felt a bit burned out on vampires, werewolves, witches, shifters, and the like so I?ve generally taken passes on the new of...

    Sometimes Twitter really, really comes through. I?m thinking, ?I would love to read more works by Indigenous writers? and also ?I would love to read some more science fiction and fantasy this summer? and the people I follow must have picked up on that because everyone was all...

    This sounds really good! Have a look at this article, where the author answers some questions: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/s... If you want to check out her writing, read this free short story: Welcome to your Authentic Indian Experience, at https://www.apex-magazine.com/w...

    There were lots of amazing things in this novel, but also some that left me meh. I love the post apocalyptic world (giant flood), the setting on a native american reservation separated from the rest of the US by a big magical wall, the supernatural monsters and gods walking and talk...

    My expectations for Trail of Lightning were extremely high, and this wonderful story exceeded them all. Rebecca Roanhorse ticks all the boxes: compelling, authentic characters (including a mighty but damaged heroine whose self-image is more than a bit problematic); exquisite world buil...

    OH MY GOD I was fortunate enough to read a super early copy of this and HOLY SHIT. ...

    This book is full of images that linger in my head after I'm finished. I am eager for the second book. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) The very first thing that struck me about Trail of Lightning is how smart and spirited out main character, Maggie, is. Maggie immediately grips you because of her ho...

    TW: child death Trail of Lightning is perhaps the most anticipated urban fantasy release of the summer, and I?m here to say that it doesn?t disappoint. When climate change caused the oceans to rise faster than anyone expected, Dinétah (once the Navajo reservation) was reborn...

    I?m ignorant when it comes to indigenous people and culture (shameful, I know), so I jumped at the opportunity to read a fantasy novel where indigenous culture was the focus. Trail of Lightning is an exciting introduction to an interesting world with a kickass main character. One ...

    Trail of Lightning is the first book in the Sixth World series, set in a post-apocalyptic America (our America as we presently know it would be the Fifth World) in which a reformed Navajo nation, Dinétah, tries to forge a future. Resources, including fresh water, are scarce. Magic, go...

    4.5 stars and going on my list of favourite reads for 2018. Trail of Lightning was one of my most anticipated books in 2018, and happily, it did not disappoint. A few months ago I read Roanhorse's most amazing short story, Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience, and it made me ...

    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...

    A dystopic urban fantasy set in a future where a good part of the world has drowned, resources are scarce and violently fought over, monsters and supernatural entities of various nature prowl around, with a Native American heroine written for a change by a Native American author? GIMME...

    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...

    Loved this, can't wait for the sequel, GIVE ME MORE KAI AND MAGS (SORRY, MAGGIE) ...

    I had an incredibly hard time sorting out my feelings on this book and I don?t know if I can say that I succeeded. There are many aspects of it that I absolutely loved, but also ones that I really disliked. And the two overlap one another, leaving me conflicted and with a frown line ...

    Mad Max: Fury Road. Native American cast. Hunt for monsters. I have only 3 words: PLEASE BE GOOD. ...

    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...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review and lots of fangirling can be found on *Milky Way of Books* If you've been following my reading progress then you know why I am going to rant about this book. As a historian with a tiny obsession with mythol...

    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...

    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 ...

    Very well written with strong narrative voice. Immersive, original and engaging. Longer review will probably come soon but in case it doesn't (because I'm lazy / too busy with work) the hype is real, guys. It's worth trying. ...

    I got this book from the author through a Give Away and I'm so excited! I wanted to sit down and read this is one sitting but life kept getting in the way. This just meant I got to savor every moment of the journey. A lot of people are describing this as a Mad Max Fury Road esque book ...

    First, a confession: I haven't been reading much in the UF genre lately, outside of the established series I?ve been following for years. Mostly though I?ve felt a bit burned out on vampires, werewolves, witches, shifters, and the like so I?ve generally taken passes on the new of...

    Sometimes Twitter really, really comes through. I?m thinking, ?I would love to read more works by Indigenous writers? and also ?I would love to read some more science fiction and fantasy this summer? and the people I follow must have picked up on that because everyone was all...

    This sounds really good! Have a look at this article, where the author answers some questions: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/s... If you want to check out her writing, read this free short story: Welcome to your Authentic Indian Experience, at https://www.apex-magazine.com/w...

    TRAIL OF LIGHTNING by Rebecca Roanhorse is an exciting start to a new series by debut author, Rebecca Roanhorse. This urban fantasy/dystopian story takes place after the Big Water ? a catastrophic event that destroys much of the Earth with unending rains and subsequent flooding. It m...

    There were lots of amazing things in this novel, but also some that left me meh. I love the post apocalyptic world (giant flood), the setting on a native american reservation separated from the rest of the US by a big magical wall, the supernatural monsters and gods walking and talk...

    My expectations for Trail of Lightning were extremely high, and this wonderful story exceeded them all. Rebecca Roanhorse ticks all the boxes: compelling, authentic characters (including a mighty but damaged heroine whose self-image is more than a bit problematic); exquisite world buil...

    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...

    I have been excited for this book ever since I found about it ? and it did not disappoint me at all. Rebecca Roanhorse has created a seriously cool, very much needed different Urban Fantasy here that makes me very excited for what is to come. Living in a post-apocalyptic Dinétah ...

    4.5 stars and going on my list of favourite reads for 2018. Trail of Lightning was one of my most anticipated books in 2018, and happily, it did not disappoint. A few months ago I read Roanhorse's most amazing short story, Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience, and it made me ...

    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...

    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...

    I had an incredibly hard time sorting out my feelings on this book and I don?t know if I can say that I succeeded. There are many aspects of it that I absolutely loved, but also ones that I really disliked. And the two overlap one another, leaving me conflicted and with a frown line ...

    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...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review and lots of fangirling can be found on *Milky Way of Books* If you've been following my reading progress then you know why I am going to rant about this book. As a historian with a tiny obsession with mythol...

    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...

    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 ...

    Very well written with strong narrative voice. Immersive, original and engaging. Longer review will probably come soon but in case it doesn't (because I'm lazy / too busy with work) the hype is real, guys. It's worth trying. ...

    I got this book from the author through a Give Away and I'm so excited! I wanted to sit down and read this is one sitting but life kept getting in the way. This just meant I got to savor every moment of the journey. A lot of people are describing this as a Mad Max Fury Road esque book ...

    First, a confession: I haven't been reading much in the UF genre lately, outside of the established series I?ve been following for years. Mostly though I?ve felt a bit burned out on vampires, werewolves, witches, shifters, and the like so I?ve generally taken passes on the new of...

    Sometimes Twitter really, really comes through. I?m thinking, ?I would love to read more works by Indigenous writers? and also ?I would love to read some more science fiction and fantasy this summer? and the people I follow must have picked up on that because everyone was all...

    This sounds really good! Have a look at this article, where the author answers some questions: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/s... If you want to check out her writing, read this free short story: Welcome to your Authentic Indian Experience, at https://www.apex-magazine.com/w...

    There were lots of amazing things in this novel, but also some that left me meh. I love the post apocalyptic world (giant flood), the setting on a native american reservation separated from the rest of the US by a big magical wall, the supernatural monsters and gods walking and talk...

    My expectations for Trail of Lightning were extremely high, and this wonderful story exceeded them all. Rebecca Roanhorse ticks all the boxes: compelling, authentic characters (including a mighty but damaged heroine whose self-image is more than a bit problematic); exquisite world buil...

    This book is full of images that linger in my head after I'm finished. I am eager for the second book. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) The very first thing that struck me about Trail of Lightning is how smart and spirited out main character, Maggie, is. Maggie immediately grips you because of her ho...

    I have been excited for this book ever since I found about it ? and it did not disappoint me at all. Rebecca Roanhorse has created a seriously cool, very much needed different Urban Fantasy here that makes me very excited for what is to come. Living in a post-apocalyptic Dinétah ...

    4.5 stars and going on my list of favourite reads for 2018. Trail of Lightning was one of my most anticipated books in 2018, and happily, it did not disappoint. A few months ago I read Roanhorse's most amazing short story, Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience, and it made me ...

    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...

    A dystopic urban fantasy set in a future where a good part of the world has drowned, resources are scarce and violently fought over, monsters and supernatural entities of various nature prowl around, with a Native American heroine written for a change by a Native American author? GIMME...

    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...

    Loved this, can't wait for the sequel, GIVE ME MORE KAI AND MAGS (SORRY, MAGGIE) ...

    I had an incredibly hard time sorting out my feelings on this book and I don?t know if I can say that I succeeded. There are many aspects of it that I absolutely loved, but also ones that I really disliked. And the two overlap one another, leaving me conflicted and with a frown line ...

    Mad Max: Fury Road. Native American cast. Hunt for monsters. I have only 3 words: PLEASE BE GOOD. ...

    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...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review and lots of fangirling can be found on *Milky Way of Books* If you've been following my reading progress then you know why I am going to rant about this book. As a historian with a tiny obsession with mythol...

    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...

    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 ...

    Very well written with strong narrative voice. Immersive, original and engaging. Longer review will probably come soon but in case it doesn't (because I'm lazy / too busy with work) the hype is real, guys. It's worth trying. ...

    I got this book from the author through a Give Away and I'm so excited! I wanted to sit down and read this is one sitting but life kept getting in the way. This just meant I got to savor every moment of the journey. A lot of people are describing this as a Mad Max Fury Road esque book ...

    First, a confession: I haven't been reading much in the UF genre lately, outside of the established series I?ve been following for years. Mostly though I?ve felt a bit burned out on vampires, werewolves, witches, shifters, and the like so I?ve generally taken passes on the new of...

    Sometimes Twitter really, really comes through. I?m thinking, ?I would love to read more works by Indigenous writers? and also ?I would love to read some more science fiction and fantasy this summer? and the people I follow must have picked up on that because everyone was all...

    This sounds really good! Have a look at this article, where the author answers some questions: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/s... If you want to check out her writing, read this free short story: Welcome to your Authentic Indian Experience, at https://www.apex-magazine.com/w...

    TRAIL OF LIGHTNING by Rebecca Roanhorse is an exciting start to a new series by debut author, Rebecca Roanhorse. This urban fantasy/dystopian story takes place after the Big Water ? a catastrophic event that destroys much of the Earth with unending rains and subsequent flooding. It m...

    There were lots of amazing things in this novel, but also some that left me meh. I love the post apocalyptic world (giant flood), the setting on a native american reservation separated from the rest of the US by a big magical wall, the supernatural monsters and gods walking and talk...
