The Good Luck Girls are free. Aster's sister and friends have new lives across the border in Ferron, while Aster remains in Arketta, helping more girls escape. But news of a new welcome house opening fills Aster with a need to do more than just help individual girls. And an unexpected reunion gives her an idea of how to do it. From there, grows a wildly ambitious plan to free all dustbloods, who live as prisoners to Arketta's landmasters and debt slavery.
When Clementine and the others return from Ferron, they become the heart of a vibrant group of fearless fighters, working to unite the various underclasses and convince them to join in the fight. Along the way, friendships will be forged, lives will be lost, and love will take root even in the harshest of circumstances, between the most unexpected of lovers.
But will Arketta's dustbloods finally come into power and freedom, or will the resistance just open them up to a new sort of danger?
What would you do if you spent the day with Aster and Clementine? Where would you go to eat, hang out, relax, etc.?
I would love to take them around NYC! It was such a shock to me coming from the middle of the country, and I imagine it would be for them too, coming from the Scab.
If Aster and Clementine were to hang out with characters from other books, who would they be and why?
I mentioned this earlier, but I think they would love Maeve from Westworld — it’s not a book, but it pairs really well with this series.
If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be and what would you talk about?
The djinni from THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND, by Johnathan Stroud. That’s been one of my all-time favorite series since I was a kid. I’d ask him all about his history, the things he’s seen and the people he’s met.
If you buried a time capsule with three items inside, what three items would you choose and why?
A PS2, some sour gummy worms, and a hoodie with thumb holes, to preserve the essence of the 2000s.
What was your favorite bit of research you ended up not using?
I feel like I ended up using all my research! Even if it didn’t come up in the story, every detail I learned about the Old West helped me build the world of Arketta. But my favorite statistic I like to tell people is that almost 50% of cowboys were Black, Latinx, and/or Indigenous. The idea that they all looked like John Wayne comes from a very whitewashed, Hollywood version of history.
What is your favorite quote, scene, or moment from Sisters of Reckoning?
There’s a scene where the gang robs a casino and kidnaps a landmaster, and that was a ton of fun to write. I’m excited for readers to experience it.
