REVIEW OF BOOK 1 RECAP OF BOOK 1 (SPOILERS)
While this review is spoiler-free, if you haven’t read Trail of Lightning yet, I’d recommend not reading this review or book synopsis as both have spoilers for book 1.
“You know much of what you want, Battle Child. Careful it is not your undoing.”
Friends, when I say that I had high expectations for the second installment in Roanhorse’s Sixth World series, I mean it. I was so pleasantly swept away into this world during the first book that I was confident that my expectations for book would be too high. I have never been so happy to be wrong before: Storm of Locusts is action packed, fast paced, and full of heart. If you’re a fan of witty banter and found families, this sequel is definitely for you!
“Lightning without a cloud in sight means one thing. Visitors.”
What an incredible debut from Roanhorse! I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the world that Roanhorse crafted, engaged from the first page to the last. If you are looking for a fast-paced story that is both character and plot driven, I highly recommend Trail of Lightning!
This urban fantasy is set in an alternative America. Most of the world has been destroyed due to cataclysmic flooding, bringing about what the gods call the Sixth World (kind of like a new era for humanity), and the Navajo have taken back their own land and built a wall to survive. In the Sixth World gods walk among humans, but so do monsters… and everyone has their own agenda.
