Waiting on Wednesday 01/17/18

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse (June 26, 2018 by Saga Press)

This book has been described as a Max Max: Fury Road inspired dystopian starring a monster-hunting Navajo heroine. I haven’t looked forward to a book this much in ages, and I just have one thing to say: please let this be as good as it sounds.

“While most of the world has drowned beneath the sudden rising waters of a climate apocalypse, Dinétah (formerly the Navajo reservation) has been reborn. The gods and heroes of legend walk the land, but so do monsters.

Maggie Hoskie is a Dinétah monster hunter, a supernaturally gifted killer. When a small town needs help finding a missing girl, Maggie is their last—and best—hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much larger and more terrifying than anything she could imagine.

Maggie reluctantly enlists the aid of Kai Arviso, an unconventional medicine man, and together they travel to the rez to unravel clues from ancient legends, trade favors with tricksters, and battle dark witchcraft in a patchwork world of deteriorating technology.

As Maggie discovers the truth behind the disappearances, she will have to confront her past—if she wants to survive.

Welcome to the Sixth World.”

  2. I just saw this at Tammy’s and I think we all got the same newsletter notification. I almost featured it too and would have had my post not already been drafted. There’s so much to love about this one I just don’t know if I can wait that long!


  3. For some reason I knew you were going to pick this book😉 The cover is stunning and I was not expecting to see a pick up truck! And I agree, I HOPE it’s as good as it sounds.


    • Specifically dealing with Native American culture? Hmm, I can’t think of many either. Though I know series like Mercy Thompson and Jane Yellowrock have touched upon it in certain books/storylines because of their Native American heroines.
