Tanis Parenteau's spellbinding narration evokes the rugged authenticity of the postapocalyptic Navajo homeland of Dinétah. Her confident voice with its touch of snark deftly embodies the gritty charm of Diné bounty hunter Maggie Hoskie, who's trying really hard not to kill anyone. Parenteau's flawless narration builds with the story's dramatic tension as the White Locus rises from Navajo legend to destroy everything Maggie loves. Shifting chameleon-like between characters, Parenteau's easy use of pitch, intonation, and tempo makes Maggie, Rissa, Ben, and the gods themselves feel like fully formed characters with the occasional touch of wry humor. Parenteau's affection for Maggie and her team shines through, lightening the mood throughout a pulse-pounding tale that captures the imagination and redefines girl power for the postapocalyptic age.
