really liked it

I've started this one right after I've finished the previous book in the series. I can tell that this is a much more fast-paced, action-oriented page turner then the previous one. I listened to an interview with the author and I've learned that she studied to be a writer, and it shows. It is very well written. I continued to bond with the characters and was involved in the story emotionally all the way. I liked this one too. This was a nice read, so I wholeheartedly recommend the series to any post-apocalyptic urban fantasy fans.

“Ah, now,” he says, his grin shifting to disarming, “you wouldn’t shoot a man who baked you a pie, would you?” “Didn’t anyone tell you, Gideon?” I growl, as K’aahanáanii rolls through my veins. “I’m the crazy one in the girl gang.” I pull the trigger.”
Rebecca Roanhorse, Storm of Locusts

“Don’t you want to be free?” “No! Free is lonely. Free is having no one who cares for you, no one who will sacrifice their own lives to protect you. Free is no one having your back even when you’re a solid bitch. I don’t want that kind of free!”
Rebecca Roanhorse, Storm of Locusts
