Review: Midnight Blue-Light Special - Seanan McGuire


The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity--and humanity from them. Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she'd rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and when her work with the cryptid community took her to Manhattan, she thought she would finally be free to pursue competition-level dance in earnest. It didn't quite work out that way...

But now, with the snake cult that was killing virgins all over Manhattan finally taken care of, Verity is ready to settle down for some serious ballroom dancing—until her on-again, off-again, semi-boyfriend Dominic De Luca, a member of the monster-hunting Covenant of St. George, informs her that the Covenant is on their way to assess the city's readiness for a cryptid purge. With everything and everyone she loves on the line, there's no way Verity can take that lying down.


My thoughts:
I will always just compare these with the Toby books, cos they are just not as good. They are still good, just not AS good.

Here Verity fights the wicked Covenant, Sarah has her own POV for a time, lots of cool cryptids, Dominic has to make up his mind where he belongs and the MICE! Yes I adore the talking Mice.

So there is action, a bit of romance/drama and just life in general for a woman saving good guys and hunting baddies.

I was a bit disappointed at the end, not cos of the book, but because I read that book 3 will be about Alex. Who we have only heard about so far. So no more Verity, I guess this was goodbye. I only hope he has some mice too ;)

  2. They aren't my type of books. I get you how some books in comparable genres/stories aren't as good as others but still good. They can't all be fantastic, unfortunately!

  4. I have been wanting to read this series, but the second isn't getting stellar reviews. Maja wasn't overly impressed either. What is the deal with the mice?

    1. The mice are awesome! They talk, they are overly religious, they are just the best.

      Not as good, and I just do not know

  11. I'm determined to give this series a try even though it seems like book two isn't as good as book one. It just sounds like a cool premise. Great review!

  15. Aw, sorry you'll have to say goodbye to Verity, but maybe Alex will be amazing

  16. O_O! I've just started this one, Blodeuedd! I agree this series will never be as good as Toby but then Toby will never be as good as Newsflesh - these all just very different series. I'm sure there'll be mice in book #3 :)
