Storm of Locusts by Rebecca Roanhorse
The Sixth World - Book 2
I loved it!
When I read the first book last July, I immediately pr-ordered this one and that's something I NEVER do. But oh, I'm glad I did!
We return to Maggie's story, some 4 weeks after the events of the previous book and our Maggie isn't really in a happy place. Kai has not returned to her and she's trying to feel hopeful, but worry and concern and her innate pessimism is kicking in. Suddenly, one of her bounties goes dreadfully wrong and she ends up responsible for a teenager with a strange clan power. And thus, the adventure begins.
We meet old friends and new friends as Maggie and her 'team' track the latest danger to Dinétah to try and stop him before he can cause a new apocalyptic disaster, as well as saving Kai from his grip, and are aided and hindered along the way by some very interesting folk.
It's wonderful getting to know the Goodacre twins better and the new addition of Ben, the teenage girl with strange powers does a lot for Maggie's growth. (I have to admit that because Ben is the name of my ex-husband, I had a bit of a struggle with it. *LOL*)
The world expands as Maggie grows and the author does a lovely job of telling the story of both. Her words are a joy to read, and as with the first book, there was more than one occasion of ... just one more chapter, just one more. :)
This is one of those books where I wish I was able to write amazing reviews, because it certainly deserves it. But, because I can't, take a look at this one... "And the waters prevailed" I just wish I was this good. *LOL*
So when do we get Book 3????????
