The Native Star by MK Hobson

4.5 stars.

This is a book that’s right up on the level of The Emperor’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker in terms of sheer entertainment, deadpan humor, and incredible world building. Its like the old west meets wizards meets magic meets zombies meets Native American lore meets steam punk. I’ve never encountered a world like this before, and its clear the author has done a lot of thinking out the world and the magic systems. Its well written, and the book takes a grittier, darker turn than I originally expected reading the summary, but it was not an unwelcome turn. The two main characters are snarky, sarcastic, and possess such a real chemistry you can’t help but fall in love with them. I laughed out loud and audibly gasped in a few tense spots. Its fast paced and action packed, so if you’re looking for something fun and incredibly entertaining, this is it.
