Urban Fantasy on the Post-Apocalyptic Rez.

In Trail of Lightning, Roanhorse expertly weaves bits of urban fantasy and apocalyptic fiction into a brilliant tale of humans, monsters, and gods set against the background of a post flood southwest.

Maggie Hoskie is a monster hunter. When the big waters rose and the walls cut what was once rez land from the rest of the world, her clan powers manifested, turning her into a brutally efficient killing machine. We first join her months after she has been abandoned by her mentor and shortly before she is sent on a quest by none other than Coyote.

Roanhorse creates spectacular characters and places them in a setting that is both familiar and wonderfully strange. The tale is epic and tragic at the same time. I for one, can't wait to grab the next book and continue the tale.
