I really enjoyed this snarky adventure story. Many of the plot elements would sound ridiculous if I tried to explain them - but they work! I especially loved the overly enthusiastic aeslin mice with their religious observations - my favourite one being the holy feast of ‘I swear, daddy, I‘ll kiss the next man that walks through that door‘ (even if I could guess where that was going 😂)

faelinwolf The Aeslin mice are my absolute favorite! 🐀🐀🐀 I love this series. Hail! 3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @faelinwolf, they are hilarious! Have you read them all? 3w
faelinwolf I'm a little behind. I've read through #5. I have 6 & 7 on my bookshelf! 3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @faelinwolf, cool cool ☺️ was the change of main character ok? 3w
faelinwolf Yeah, I think so! I think it's fun to get to know other characters more in depth. 3w

Suet624 I was doing that too and then discovered NyQuil. It cured me. 64 years old and had never tried it before. It‘s a miracle drug 3w
marleed Oh I‘m sorry. @Suet624, I agree NyQuil is a self administered anesthetic for me that I only use when desperate so as not become immune to its magical powers. 3w

I know the author so this was quite expected but... I loved it! It's funny, fast-paced, intriguing and the mice are adorable! A great start for an UF series!

I really enjoyed the start of Seanan McGuire‘s second Urban fantasy series. While very different from the October Daye series, it maintains the same wit & fun that got me hooked on the first series.

Recent #bookhaul from an outdoor rack of mass market paperbacks labeled “beach books” in Hawaii. The only Seanan McGuire I‘ve read is Every Heart A Doorway...anyone read this InCryptid series? #beachbooks

A thoroughly enjoyable romp through the world of bogeymen and dragons. Verity Price is a likable heroine with a penchant for rooftop running. The story was fast paced and the characters interesting and unusual. A big thumbs up from me 👍

Slow start,which is to be expected at the start of a paranormal series that needs to introduce characters & do some worldbuilding.The pace picks up halfway & we‘re squarely on the side of the heroine—waitress, dancer, & cryptozoologist Verity Price.Her opening act involves finding a sleeping dragon, saving some otherworldly creatures from a fanatical order of knights, and shtupping one of said knights.Sentient mice and excellent fight sequences.

Fantastic vacation read. It‘s like reading about Buffy if Buffy decided to make her alter ego Anne a ball room dancer instead of a waitress. Fun stuff!

And another sale! The first book in a really fun urban fantasy by Seanan McGuire. The boogeymonster is real and working at a club in NYC, along with dragons, werebeasts, and a cryptozoologist-slash-ballroom dancer.

Verity Price comes from a family of cryptozoologists. She lives in New York and is trying to take care that no magical creatures are harmed by humans. Or vice versa. She is very bad-ass. She's also the current high-priestess of the Aeslin mice, which are definitely worth the price of admission! She can also do a helluva tango. #badassheroines #riotgrams

#riotgrams #kissingbooks All my Romance-romance reading is digital (apart from library books), but there sure is kissing in urban fantasy romp Discount Armageddon, too. Here it is with my VDay present for my husband. We don't really celebrate this particular holiday, so it's chocolate, crockpot pork ribs, and no other plans. Our second anniversary is in May and that's the day we celebrate with a slap up dinner out.

I cannot tell you how little I care about competitive dance competitions or how much I despise NYC, and yet I still loved this book. Such is the power of Seanan McGuire. Toby Daye is still my homegirl, but I'd be down for a night with the Price girls.
