Set in a post-apocalyptic version of the Navajo reservation, the series follows Dinétah monster hunter Maggie Hoskie, who is just trying to get by in a world filled with reborn gods and monsters. When a small town needs help finding a missing girl, Maggie is their last best hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much more terrifying than anything she could imagine. She teams up with unconventional medicine man Kai Arviso (I have A LOT of feelings about these two, FYI), and together they travel the rez, unravelling clues from ancient legends, trading favours with tricksters, and battling dark witchcraft in a patchwork world of deteriorating technology.
Over the course of the first two books in the series, Maggie will have to confront her past if she wants to survive, and realise that there is more to life than survival.
They’re brilliant novels, full of vivid characters, remarkable worldbuilding and gorgeous writing. I can’t wait to share them with you.
TRAIL OF LIGHTNING and STORM OF LOCUSTS will be available at all good bookstores from NOVEMBER 28TH. Waterstones, Amazon, Book Depository, Goodreads
