As it seems with most of the books I read anymore Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse was a COYER book club pick for November. Thankfully when it was picked it was on sale.
Honestly I think I picked up Trail of Lightning at the wrong time. There was just too much going on in the real world. It took me two weeks to finish it. I think the story was incredibly original and I did enjoy it. I loved the insight into the Native American culture and how it was weaved in and around the storyline.
I really thought the way Maggie and her people survived was amazing. The biggest issue I had was the pacing. I really want to stress that it very well could have been what was happening outside of the story.
I really liked Maggie and Kai. I can certainly understand why Maggie is the way she is. Kai always remains a little bit of a mystery. Really all the secondary characters were pretty enjoyable except for the gods. The gods really seemed to be pretty disdainful of the “five-fingered”.
Tah is probably my favorite character. The bad guy had everything Maggie dished out coming his way and probably a bit more if I’m being frank.
Even though I didn’t love Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse I think it was unique enough that I want to continue with the series!
