Book Review ~ Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse is the first book in The Sixth World series and kicks off with an amazing start.

When I first received an email about the opportunity to read Shadow’s Bane, I felt a moment of panic. Have I missed keeping up with this series? Did something happen that I forgot about?
