Toby thought she understood her own past; she thought she knew the score.

She was wrong.

It’s time to learn the truth.

 

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

THE WINTER LONG is an outstanding installment to the October Daye series. Toby had thought her past was basically black and white, but when Simon Torquill is back in town everything changes. Simon is the one that turned Toby into a fish in the first book. Now he is back and he turns her world upside down. After this Toby’s life will never be the same. This book has such rich and beautifully well-developed characters that make the story outstanding. This book has so many twists and turns, and a surprising plot twist that will have you on the edge of your seat. Toby’s world will never be the same again. I love the world building in this series and Toby is a kick-ass heroine. She protects the ones she loves. I give THE WINTER LONG 5/5 stars. If I could give it more I would. I recommend this series and this book to everyone.

REVIEW FOR “DISCOUNT ARMAGEDDON” BY SEANAN McGUIRE

Product Details

Ghoulies. Ghosties. Long-legged beasties. Things that go bump in the  night… 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 is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in  professional ballroom dance. Sounds pretty simple, right? It would be,  if it weren’t for the talking mice, the telepathic mathematicians, the  asbestos supermodels, and the trained monster-hunter sent by the Price  family’s old enemies, the Covenant of St. George. When a Price girl  meets a Covenant boy, high stakes, high heels, and a lot of collateral  damage are almost guaranteed. To complicate matters further, local  cryptids are disappearing, strange lizard-men are appearing in the  sewers, and someone’s spreading rumors about a dragon sleeping  underneath the city..
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
This is the first book in the Incryptid series. Seanan McGuire really knows how to do world building and character development. I love the character of Verity Price. Her family has given her one year to make it as a dancer and to decide if she wants to continue or if she wants to be in the family business of being a cryptozoologist. This book is action packed, has talking mice, what more would you want. Oh yeah and a little romance. With monsters and mayhem you get a bunch of crazy Scooby action as things quickly spiral out of control. I give this book a 5/ 5 stars.
Here are the books in the series.

“MIDNIGHT BLUE-LIGHT SPECIAL” BY SEANAN McGUIRE BOOK REVIEW

Product DetailsThis is book 2 of THE INCRYPTID NOVELS. THE CREATURES THAT YOUR MOM TOLD YOU THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT, ARE REAL.   Verity Price moved to New York to make it as a dancer. The Price’s have studies monsters for generations, and her father has given her a year to make it as a dancer or come back home and continue in what the Price’s have done for generations.

When a snake cult starts killing virgins all over Manhattan, Verity’s on-again off-again boyfriend Dominic De Luca, that the Covenant of St. George is on their way to assess the city’s readiness for a cryptid purge.  When the price family did not follow the Covenant’s orders and destroy the cryptids, they were banished and a price was put on their head.

Now Verity has to save the cryptids from the Covenant, destroy the snake cult, and stay out of the line of sight of the Covenant.

This is a really good series with a lot of laughs to go with it. I really love the talking mice, they steal the show. I give this book a 5/ 5 stars.
