Young Adult Fantasy
Kai and Caleb Goodacre have been kidnapped just as rumors
of a cult sweeping across the reservation leads Maggie and
Hastiin to investigate an outpost, and what they find there
will challenge everything they’ve come to know in this
action-packed sequel to Trail of Lightning.
It’s been four weeks since the bloody showdown at Black
Mesa, and Maggie Hoskie, Diné monster hunter, is trying to
make the best of things. Only her latest bounty hunt has
gone sideways, she’s lost her only friend, Kai Arviso, and
she’s somehow found herself responsible for a girl with a
strange clan power.
Then the Goodacre twins show up at Maggie’s door with the
news that Kai and the youngest Goodacre, Caleb, have fallen
in with a mysterious cult, led by a figure out of Navajo
legend called the White Locust. The Goodacres are convinced
that Kai’s a true believer, but Maggie suspects there’s more
to Kai’s new faith than meets the eye. She vows to track
down the White Locust, then rescue Kai and make things right
Her search leads her beyond the Walls of Dinétah and
straight into the horrors of the Big Water world outside.
With the aid of a motley collection of allies, Maggie must
battle body harvesters, newborn casino gods and, ultimately,
the White Locust himself. But the cult leader is nothing
like she suspected, and Kai might not need rescuing after
all. When the full scope of the White Locust’s plans are
revealed, Maggie’s burgeoning trust in her friends, and
herself, will be pushed to the breaking point, and not
everyone will survive.
