Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World #1) Reviews
I had an incredibly hard time sorting out my feelings on this book and I don’t know if I can say that I succeeded. There are many aspects of it that I absolutely loved, but also ones that I really disliked. And the two overlap one another, leaving me conflicted and with a frown line that’s about to become permanent.
Let’s just begin with all the things that I loved. A Trail of Lighting is a post-apocalyptic fantasy that revolves around Native American culture and history, written by a Native Amer ...more
This book is full of images that linger in my head after I'm finished. I am eager for the second book.
Mad Max: Fury Road.
Native American cast.
Hunt for monsters.
I have only 3 words: PLEASE BE GOOD.
My expectations for Trail of Lightning were extremely high, and this wonderful story exceeded them all.

4.5 stars and going on my list of favourite reads for 2018.
Trail of Lightning was one of my most anticipated books in 2018, and happily, it did not disappoint. A few months ago I read Roanhorse's most amazing short story, Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience, and it made me excited to see what she would do with a full novel.
Trail of Lightning delivers a fast-paced story in a completely unique setting. Roanhorse has taken a familiar UF storyline and remade it with a fresh telling from an i ...more
I'm not huge on urban fantasy, but I am really looking forward to this one
I got this book from the author through a Give Away and I'm so excited! I wanted to sit down and read this is one sitting but life kept getting in the way. This just meant I got to savor every moment of the journey. A lot of people are describing this as a Mad Max Fury Road esque book and I definitely agree but it made me think that this is where the Western Genre should be going. Righteous Women traveling the land striking out against those who would mean to do harm.
I think the ultimate descri ...more
