Storm of Locusts by Rebecca Roanhorse
It is expected to be released on April 23, 2019, by Saga Press.
I am so excited about this book. I haven’t read the first book, Trail of Lightning in The Sixth World series but I have been hearing wonderful things. That leads to the excitement for this book. I am planning on asking for the first book for Christmas.
When I thought they couldn’t even beat the cover for Trail of Lightning, I was wrong. This cover! It is so beautiful. I cannot wait to see this in person. It is so beautiful. I love how the fire didn’t distract us from the characters. My only issue is the colors via the typography. I am not sure if it fits well with the rest of the picture. What do you think of the typography?
Warning: This is a sequel, please read the synopsis if you have read the first book or this will be a spoiler for you.
It’s been four weeks since the bloody showdown at Black Mesa, and Maggie Hoskie, Diné monster hunter, is trying to make the best of things. Only her latest bounty hunt has gone sideways, she’s lost her only friend, Kai Arviso, and she’s somehow found herself responsible for a young girl with a strange clan power.
Then 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. 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. She vows to track down the White Locust, rescue Kai, and make things right between them both.
Her search leads her beyond the Walls of Dinétah and straight into the horrors of the Big Water world outside. With the aid of a motley collection of allies, Maggie must battle body harvesters, newborn casino gods, and, ultimately the White Locust himself. But the cult leader is nothing like she suspected, and Kai might not need rescuing after all. When the full scope of the White Locust’s plans are revealed, Maggie’s burgeoning trust in her friends and herself will be pushed to the breaking point, and not everyone will survive.
