Midnight Blue-Light Special: InCryptid #2
by Seanan McGuire
(urban paranormal fantasy)
This second book in the series was a lot of fun, and showed more of Dominic’s personality than I remember from the first one. (Maybe we get more of Dominic, or maybe we just get something closer to his true self. I’m not sure on that.) It also involves a lot more of Sarah, which I like because I really enjoy Sarah.
In general, I like this book better than the first in the series (though I did also like that one a lot). Now that we’ve been introduced to the cryptid world, it seems like there’s a lot more mayhem that the characters can get up to.
Plus. The MICE. While the first book introduced the Aeslin mice and gave us a nice glimpse at their religion, this second book uses them more and in a thoroughly endearing way. I could easily keep reading this series for the mice alone, even though the human(oid)s are also enjoyable characters.
All told, this story – and series – are worth a read. If the genre is at all your cup of tea, you should give it a shot.
Rating: 5 stars
