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
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.
There's plenty of tension. Readers who enjoyed Roanhorse's first book will eagerly blaze through her second
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
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
A must-read for anyone interested in own-voices or speculative fiction
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!
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
