While most of the world has drowned beneath the sudden rising waters of a climate apocalypse, Dinétah (formerly the Navajo reservation) has been reborn. The gods and heroes of legend walk the land, but so do monsters.

Maggie Hoskie is a Dinétah monster hunter, a supernaturally gifted killer. When a small town needs help finding a missing girl, Maggie is their last best hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much more terrifying than anything she could imagine.

Maggie reluctantly enlists the aid of Kai Arviso, an unconventional medicine man, and together they travel the rez, unraveling clues from ancient legends, trading favors with tricksters, and battling dark witchcraft in a patchwork world of deteriorating technology.

As Maggie discovers the truth behind the killings, she will have to confront her past if she wants to survive.

Welcome to the Sixth World.

Don’t miss this terrifying, magical, and electrifying journey into the legends of the Diné

It’s amazing to see the Native American voice in urban fantasy. We finally have stories from an entire lengendary human lexicon that has been silent for far too long. Thank you Mrs. Roanhorse for opening up the door into your world and giving us a glimpse of the beauty, terror, and otherworldliness that lies beyond our own known world.

Amazing

I bought this book on Monday for my iPad and just finished it today. It was very hard to put it down when having to leave for work or class. Never have I read a book that quickly. Geared up and ready for the second book in the series
