Trigger warnings: death, blood, gore, violence, murder, death of a child, death of a loved one.

3.5 stars.

I've been anticipating this book from the second I heard about it. I mean, it's billed as a paranormal, Native American version of Mad Max. Which sounds AMAZING. And based on the first couple of chapters of this, I was hooked.

It's more urban fantasy than anything, although the majority of it takes place in the country. I loved the world and the worldbuilding. The initial stages of the story reminded me of Supernatural crossed with Kate Daniels and I was totally here for it.

That said, I felt like the second half dragged a little more than I would have liked, but I'm still REALLY interested to see where the series goes from here! (Also: nothing about this is YA, probably don't give this to teenagers it's super fucking gory)

Devon Munn I am very interested in this book, although it does seem to share similarities to a book called Killer Of Enemies (which btw you wouldn't mind if i recommended some books about Indigenous peoples to you?)
