    Juicy squatter traveler punk fantasy to read in a sitting or two. Docked a point for missing the underlying existential angst of testing idealistic philosophy against traumatic reality that I've come to so love in Margaret Killjoy's work, or maybe just that I couldn't get emotionally i...

    Margaret Killjoy has such a way with words that if I started quoting from this we'd be here all day, and I adore all of the characters, but the end of the book sort of fizzles. (view spoiler)[It would've been nice to get more than "So Heather got to live" hooray! maybe a description of...

    Anarchist punk demon hunters take on a necromancer from a library being squatted in and run by punks who took it over when the state no longer funded it. It is the second novella about Danielle Cain, continuing in a dark, modern fantasy world in which sorcerous rituals allow us to cont...

    I read the first book in the series in a single sitting. This one is only slightly longer, but I had too many things distracting me, and it took longer ? I think it would be better read at a quick pace since the the forward movement of the plot keeps the more serious elements recogni...

    After I devoured The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion I was really excited to read another novella by Margaret Killjoy, featuring the punk, queer, homeless, anarchist Danielle Cain, fresh on the road with companions from Freedom, Iowa. They're headed out into the world with the loose idea ...

    The Barrow Will Send What it May is the followup to Margaret Killjoy?s first novella in the Danielle Cain series, The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion. The diverse cast of characters that Danielle found herself among at the end of the last book are now on their way across the US, seeking...

    2019 UPDATE This tale is a finalist for the 31st Lammy Award in Sci Fi/Fantasy! Awards presented 3 June 2019. You don't know how good an author's work is until you realize, when reading their new work, that you've missed these characters, this world, this skewed vision of life. That...

    Wow. I'm kicked in the head from out on left field. I got this through Netgalley based only on its cover and a single word in the blurb, but the tasting and devouring of the novella? SOOOO good. :) What to expect? ANARCHY! Woooh Hooo! The best description I can make is likening ...

    I needed this book, just like I needed the first one in the series. I love that these are quick, bite size, queer reads about a group of demon hunters. Actually, it's quite like supernatural, but for found family, instead of brothers, oh and did I mention queer? Danielle Cain should...

    Hella queer, hella good! Basically Supernatural, but on a whole new level. I very much love all these characters (PROTECT AT ALL COSTS!) and their murderous, witch-y, demon-fighting adventures. "I used to think I wanted a life of adventure. Now I just want to be left alone." #rel...

    Danielle and her new friends get messed up in some resurrections occurring in Montana. This is going to be an "I liked it, but" review. I enjoy the viewpoint of the characters - anarchists and travelers - that is very different from my regimented life. Part of the fun of reading fan...

    The Danielle Cain series continues to rock my world - I absolutely devoured this book. I'm already a sucker for the found family trope, and our merry band of punkish misfits continue to support and grow with each other as they continue on the road. And like any road, there's plenty of ...

    'There's only so far our thoughts can wander outside our ethics before something kicks in and brings us back.' Okay, so I definitely liked The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion better but this was still so good! I love this found family team (that doesn't have a name yet) and I can h...

    Margaret Killjoy remains one of the most interesting, capital "W" Weird authors of fantastical anarchist fiction out there. I found the first novella in this series, The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion , a bundle of fascinating Tarot trivia and occult influences, and Killjoy's sentences ...

    I'm a little confused about when these books are supposed to take place. For the most part, it seems like a slightly-shittier-than-now near future, but then there are references to Idris Elba and fairly contemporary scientific debates. While I certainly hope that Idris Elba survives an...

    I enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as the first one. Partly it is because the first book really focused on the moral ideals of the anarchists and the obvious question of how you maintain a society without law, while this book mostly had an obviously bad man doing obviously bad ...

    I'd like to echo all the reviews I've seen and say that I would happily fill a whole shelf with Danielle Cain novellas! I can't decide what I like more about these books, the world-building of the endless spirits or the character-building of the demon hunting team. This book in particu...

    A second installment in this cracking anarcho-horror series, where the supernatural threats barely outweigh the menace of human power systems. It picks up where #1 left off, with a ragtag mob of punk anarchist amateur demon-hunters on the run from a small incident involving multiple mu...

    This just wasn?t as enjoyable as the first for me, it followed a lot of the same script and just seemed too rushed. But my love for Danielle Cain and her comrades lives on. ...

    A kickass sequel to the already punk The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion, this short horror deals with our group of anarchist heroes encountering a town that seems too good to be true and a woman that casually makes small talk about returning from the dead. With introspective writing abou...

    Barrow features a fast paced plot, fully-rendered characters with real voices, and a compelling narrative arc full of emotion, conflict, and suspense. You won?t be able to put this one down. As the reader follows Danielle Cain?s band of wandering investigators as they push open...

    Ah, how do I even begin? By saying that this series is one of the most amazing thing I've ever read? That I love it so much I'm not sure I can write a proper review without praising it at every sentence? Well, yes, actually I should begin like this. I remember when I read The Lamb ...
