Re-Release: Ep025 – Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

Re-Release: Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

Imagine a world after the oceans have risen and the gods of the previous times have taken physical forms. In Roanhorse’s Trail of Lightning we follow monster hunter Maggie as she seeks to find the witch who is creating people-eating monsters. Along the way Maggie meets up with unconventional medicine man Kai and they hunt down the mystery while unfortunately entering police feuds, betting brawls, and enter into the middle of the feud of the gods. Isaac and Reid discuss how this book perfects the young adult dystopia genre as well as discuss how to open a book with twenty pages of intense action. The least we can say is we recommend it, and get ready for a dissection of how books should and ought to be written.
