Waiting on Wednesday 09/05/18

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!

Storm of Locusts by Rebecca Roanhorse (April 23, 2019 by Saga Press)

Trail of Lightning was one of the most exciting urban fantasy openers I’ve read in a long time, and I can’t wait to see where the series will take us next.

“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.”

  1. That cover kicks so much ass. So does the Trail of Lightning one, though. 😀 I’m actually reading Trail of Lightning right now, and it’s fantastic so far. But I’m also 40 or so pages left, and I keep hearing how the ending is “brutal,” so I’m like, “Oh no. What else could go wrong before – or at – the end?” XD :S

  2. I am really liking that cover! I didn’t particularly like the one for Trail of Lightning, but hey, it’s content that matters the most. 🙂 I hope to get around reading this series myself because it sounds fantastic!
