Rebecca Roanhorse is a Science Fiction & Fantasy writer and Nebula/Hugo?campbell Finalist living in Northern New Mexico with her husband, daughter, and pug.

Plot synopsis: While most of the world has drowned beneath the sudden rising waters of a climate apocalypse, Dinetah (formerly the Navajo reservation) has been reborn. The gods and heroes of legend walk the land, but so do monsters.

Maggie Hoskie is a Dinetah monster hunter, a supernaturally gifted killer. When a small town needs help finding a missing girl, Maggie is their last-- and best-- hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much larger and more terrifying than anything she could imagine.

As Maggie discovers the truth behind the disappearances, she will have to confront her past-- if she wants to survive.
