‘Storm of Locusts might be the rare sequel that’s even better than the first’ Tor.com

‘A purely joyous reading experience. Roanhorse’s latest is a killer’ Kirkus Reviews

‘A must-read for anyone interested in own-voices or speculative fiction’ Booklist, Starred Review

Kai and Caleb Goodacre have been kidnapped just as rumours of a cult sweeping across the reservation leads Maggie and Hastiin to investigate an outpost, and what they find there will challenge everything they’ve come to know in this action-packed sequel to Trail of Lightning.


When the Goodacre twins show up at Maggie’s door with the news that Kai and the youngest Goodacre, Caleb, have fallen in with a mysterious cult, led by a figure out of Navajo legend called the White Locust, she knows what has to be done. The Goodacres are convinced that Kai’s a true believer, but Maggie suspects there’s more to Kai’s new faith than meets the eye and so she vows to track him down.

With the aid of a motley collection of allies, Maggie must battle body harvesters, new-born casino gods and, ultimately, the White Locust himself, and when the full scope of his plans are revealed, Maggie’s burgeoning trust in her friends, and herself, will be pushed to the breaking point – and not everyone will survive.

Reviews

Storm of Locusts might be the rare sequel that's even better than the first. There's nothing else quite like the Sixth World series and I never want it to end. Bring on book three!
Tor.com
A must-read for anyone interested in own-voices or speculative fiction
Booklist, Starred Review
Roanhorse is a groundbreaking writer, weaving Diné language and culture throughout her work in innovative and deeply important ways while at the same time providing a purely joyous reading experience
Kirkus Reviews
There's plenty of tension. Readers who enjoyed Roanhorse's first book will eagerly blaze through her second
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
Sharp, exciting, dramatic, and entirely rooted in a Navajo sensibility which is both strikingly new to the genre and should have been with us all along
NPR
Even better than Trial of Lightning . . . Maggie's travel is both emotional and geographical, cutting out of the safety of the known into the hard country beyond.
Barnes and Noble
American Gods meets Mad Max: Fury Road . . . There's plenty of action, but Roanhorse never strays far from the focus of the book: the characters
The Verge
The vivid cultural background of Roanhorse's series comes as a breath of fresh air, providing not only a change of genre pace but a voice still heard all too rarely in speculative fiction
