|Summary, etc.:|| "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 between them. 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." -- (Source of summary not specified)

*Starred Review* When Maggie Hoskie's most recent bounty hunt goes badly wrong, she finds herself acting as Auntie to a strong-willed 16-year-old, Ben, with clan powers and a thirst for revenge. Then the Goodacre twins show up at her door looking for help finding their youngest brother, Caleb, who's gone missing along with Kai, a man Maggie would do anything for. The Goodacres are convinced that Caleb is dead and that Kai was in on it, under the influence of a doomsday cult led by a mysterious figure calling himself the White Locust. But Maggie knows Kai would never hurt Caleb, even if his last words to her (via surveillance footage) were unsettling: I love you. Don't follow me. Expanding on the richly detailed world she built in Trail of Lightning (2018), Roanhorse deepens our appreciation for the postapocalyptic landscape while enriching our understanding of the indigenous customs and legends that have come alive within it. Maggie Hoskie is as complex a heroine as you could wish for, and everything about this installment sings. A must-read for anyone interested in own-voices or speculative fiction.
