Seanan McGuire’s Discount Armageddon came out of nowhere and charmed the pants off me. That, and Cassie Alexander’s Edie Spence series, restored my faith that new urban fantasy aren’t just playing out the same old tropes and masquerading as urban fantasy when they’re really paranormal romance.

Well, good news: The second InCryptid novel, Midnight Blue-Light Special, is just as good as its predecessor, if not better. We even get bonus narration from Verity’s sweet little cuckoo cousin. And Sarah Zellaby really comes into her own here. She usually shies away from danger, but here she not only defends those she cares about, but she also launches a massive attack to save them…even at the cost of her own psychological wellbeing. Has Sarah regressed to the way she was before she was adopted? We’ll have to stay tuned for Half-Off Ragnarok, which will be narrated by Verity’s brother.

It’s so exciting to find a new series you’re passionate about, and InCryptid is just that.
