Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Midnight Blue-Light Special (InCryptid, #2)

Midnight Blue-Light Special - Seanan McGuire

A fun, entertaining read that I found myself lost in and didn't want to put down. All the characters in this motley crew were likeable (except the female dragons, and we don't see them much); I think Islas might be my favourite; she had some of the best lines in the book.  The writer used humour to soften what could have been some dark scenes - something I appreciated as I don't really go for the dark stuff.

 

The plot was very fast-paced with constant movement; not a lot of time was wasted with unnecessary dialogue, there was always something happening to forward the storyline.

 

The writer mentions at the end of the book that the next book will focus on another member of the Price family, so I'm not sure I'll pick up the next one or not. I really grew attached to Verity, Sarah, Dominic and the Freakshow crew.
