Post-apocalyptic monsters? Disaffected monster Hunter? Mysterious strangers? A tapestry of Navaho tradition & folklore? Well, sign me up. Excellently written, fast-paced, mystery to really dig your teeth into. Funny and scary and all around delightful. Highly recommend.

Liatrek Great book! Love the cover and the second book was great too. Just waiting on book 3 🙂 3mo

Genuine, unique, strong female protagonist AND a great story from an indiginous perspective? Sign me up twice!

This fiction adventure puts some spinning Navajo concepts in to a world where only the Diné have survived. Excellent author, excellent read. (Check out her children‘s series, too!)

I really liked a lot of things about this book—the world especially, a realistic-feeling apocalypse with Diné (Navajo) magic and creatures. The characters were also a lot of fun, but they felt shallow, and some of the events seemed like they took place only to cram in YA tropes. That wouldn‘t have bothered me except that Maggie didn‘t feel like a YA character to me. The ending didn‘t work for me—a lot of crucial points were only implied.

ravenlee I expected to really like this one, and while I did like it it still felt kind of…blah. It could have been amazing and it wasn‘t. Several months later I haven‘t really been inspired to pick up the sequel. I kinda hope it improves my impression, but I‘m worried it will leave me kind of wanting again. 6mo
shanaqui @ravenlee I think I had a similar experience to both of you! It was fun enough to read, but it didn't super take off for me. I had the same experience with the second book: very readable, fun enough, but I was left wanting. 6mo

My last audiobook of March! I‘ve had this one in my audible library for so long. A fairly dark, gritty dystopian fantasy that somehow also manages to be lots of fun, very clever, and even a little sexy. Great writing, excellent world building, and fascinating characters. It‘s also that elusive YA-labeled book that did not make me roll my eyes at all. 🙌🏼

Good audio narration, and I‘m definitely continuing the series.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Prairiegirl_reading I‘ve had this in my library for a long time too. If I remember correctly I got it around the same time as She Rides Shotgun (which I thought was too violent) and also Dread Nation which I didn‘t love. So now they are all connected in my brain so this never makes it to the top of the tbr. Maybe I need to rethink that. 😄 6mo
sprainedbrain @Prairiegirl_reading I wish I could remember whose review got me interested in this book, but I can‘t! So many books that I‘ve bought on an impulse that sat around too long after. 😳😂 6mo
Prairiegirl_reading @sprainedbrain I‘m pretty sure I got all three because of book riot podcasts but who specifically recommended them I don‘t know. They are all linked in my memory anyway. That‘s unreliable at best! Lol! 6mo

I finished on Friday and have been too busy to review! A good post-apocalyptic urban fantasy, set in a world in which Navajo gods and monsters meddle in the lives of mortals. It was a little more grim and violent than I expected, but good. I got hints of Kate Daniels and Mercy Thompson, in a good way. And now I have my first #BookSpinBingo of the month!

Mid- #DashingDecember update: I read Dionysus and Well Matched, am about halfway through my section of Tehran, and am about halfway through the tagged.

Crazy week for kiddo (and mom!) - she had recital on Saturday, swim class on Monday, speech evaluation and ballet class yesterday, and violin lesson and first COVID shot today (plus mandatory ice cream treat). So any reading done is kind of amazing. Hopefully more time soon. 🤞🏻

This is a very different kind of urban fantasy book and I'm here for it. The world, mythology, characters were all amazingly written and it was easy to get immersed into the book

My only complaint is that sometimes it felt like half a book. There could easily have been 100 more pages but it does make me excited to read the second in the series

This was my #bookspin for September, really glad it was picked

Here‘s my Halloween/fall #spookyaesthetic for #hauntedhollowswap #hhs

I‘m all about urban fantasy + ALL the supernatural creatures / magic. Pictured some of my favorite tv shows, movies + book series. I don‘t mind if my supernatural leans in to dark/horror/blood/gore but no scary horror movies for me. I also like gothic romance + cozy mystery.
I also love hygge/ cozy fall stuff, pumpkin pie/spice, plaid + jewel tones. See also my witch aesthetic

I'm not big on urban fantasy and I pretty much stay away from dystopian/post apocalyptic anything really, but I've enjoyed other stories by Rebecca Roanhorse, so thought I'd read this. Wow! This book was so fast-paced and had incredible characters. I just absolutely loved it. After reading 2 short stories and 2 books of hers, Rebecca Roanhorse is now on my favorite authors list. Looking forward to reading the second book.

Update on my #20in4 progress: I read for a total of four hours yesterday. I slept in a bit this morning and had errands to run today, so I've only gotten 1 1/2 hours in today. I'm going on a sunset/moonrise hike with a few friends in a little bit, but I have about an hour to kill before getting ready, so I'm going to read more. One of my errands was picking up these two books I had on hold at the library.

7/100, 5 ⭐ I loved this book and I am downloading the sequel as I write this. I don't even know what to say, it left me with such a deep feeling in my gut. The characters were very well written and the world was fascinating. Twists I saw coming and twists I didn't. Going to keep this short so I can start book two: Storm of Locusts now.

Excellent read! Interesting world, good characters, and a really slowly built exploration of the main characters background and why she‘s broken, which is a nice change. Maggie is essentially a deadly super hero and must work with someone who is very much her opposite to stop people eating monsters and contest with crafty immortals in a new world shaped by magic and disaster. 4.5/5 stars; read if you enjoy Kate Daniels and female killer heroines.

I am wavering between a pick and so-so. I found it good in parts, but Maggie could be very annoying. My hope would be that she had enough growth in this book to make the next book better, but I'm not sure I will read that. As always with post-apocalyptic fiction I wonder how society is supposed to work. Where's the gas coming from, food, clothes? To trade goods is one thing, but who is producing it? I found that more unrealistic than the gods.

I‘ve always enjoyed the gods-walk-among-us trope, and while I still read and love the Rick Riordan books, it‘s nice to read an adult version of the trope. There was a lot going on in this book. It‘s a fantasy as I mentioned. It‘s also a post-apocalypse novel. And there is a little bit of a romance element. I really enjoyed it all. I liked both main characters, and I loved learning about Navajo myths.

Roanhorse did something here, so although the writing was textbook storytelling, she found different. Indigenous fantasy is mostly an underground genre that has never or quite rarely seen the mainstream. But Roanhorse does it, she brings this unique genre to the public with lovable characters, entertaining action and the most alluring and colorful backdrop of Navajo Culture and lore.

Bk10 of my #MarchBookHaul & #BirthdayBookHaul is the 1st book in a dystopian series set in North America. After a supernatural disaster destroys most of America in the 21st century, Navajo monster slayer Maggie Hoskie must navigate a world of monsters and gods after her grandmother is murdered by witches. It combines fantasy with Native American folklore and sounds fascinating.

Somewhere between a pick & a so-so. This was an interesting post-apocalyptic story. I enjoyed the world-building and the Navajo-inspired aspects, as that‘s not something I‘ve really seen explored, but the story itself dragged a bit for me. I don‘t know if it‘s just the meh mindset I‘m in, given the current state of affairs in the world, but it took me a while to get through this audiobook. I will probably pick up the next book, but not right away.
