Episode 71: Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

Andi and Lise chat about Rebecca Roanhorse’s debut novel, Trail of Lightning, the first in her Sixth World series.

“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 best hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much more terrifying than anything she could imagine.” –Simon and Schuster

Roanhorse builds a post-apocalyptic world in what was the American Southwest, populated largely by Indigenous people. In this world of Dinétah, resources are in short supply, and myth and mythical beings roam freely among the humans.

Verge: “Trail of Lightning is a breathtaking Native American urban fantasy adventure
Locus: “Rebecca Roanhorse: From Legend to Fantasy
Lightspeed: Interview with Rebecca Roanhorse
Indian Country Today: “Trail of Lightning is an appropriation of Diné cultural beliefs
