From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Resistance Reborn comes the highly anticipated first book in the Between Earth and Sky Trilogy. Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse was released today and this epic story of adventure, exploration of power, and unforgettable characters is being heralded as the most original series debut of the decade.
The Hugo Awards, the annual award for science fiction, will announce their winner later in the week, but for now, there are two finalists which are the first in their series—so you can start reading right now, and be ready for the winner this weekend.
Trail of Lightning, by Rebecca Roanhorse

Maggie is a post-apocalyptic Navajo monster hunter, and that’s just the beginning. When a girl goes missing in a small town, she’s forced to team up with a medicine man to travel the reservation, uncovering secrets and coming closer and closer to a monster more terrible than either can imagine. An immersive flooded world, filled with gods and monsters, and characters with enough sarcasm and attitude to bear the weight of a dark plot and devastated world.
This has already swept a few awards, and is sure to be a good pick for anyone who likes any supernatural or speculative genres.

You may have noticed by now I’m A LITTLE OBSESSED with Naomi Novik, but hey, the experts back me up. This is sort of a fairy tale, related to Rumpelstiltskin, but you always get much more than you can possibly foresee with Novik.
Since her father is running the family business into the ground, Miryim takes matters into her own hands. For better or worse, she’s very good at debt collecting, and ends up catching the attention of the supernatural—the icy Staryk—and it only gets more dire from there. You can expect gloriously lush world building and characters who feel like real people.
