Bowing down to a queen of urban fantasy
Night and Silence - Seanan McGuire

I requested to review this because, d’uh, it’s Seanan McGuire and I have a lot invested in this series, even if it had been making me cranky.  So I didn’t even read the blurb before I dove in. Imagine how much crankier I got when I saw that once again Gillian was being kidnapped. Eye rolling and foot stomping may have been involved.

 

Yeah, well, forget all that. Night and Silence firmly put Toby back as one of my favourite urban fantasy heroines and this series cemented in the must-reads. It’s got everything: heart wrenching romance, heart wrenching mother-daughter issues, awesome mythology, excellent adventures, and the exact right amount of twists, turns, and surprises.

It also nicely balances all my favourite characters, especially Toby and Tybalt and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.

 

If you love urban fantasy and haven’t yet started this series, get going already. As for me, I’m really looking forward to where things go from here. McGuire included a great novella at the end that set up some very interesting possibilities.

 

*squeeeeeeee*

 

Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group – DAW and NetGalley for an ARC of this book. This is my honest review.

Halloween Bingo 2018 - Cryptozoology
Discount Armageddon - Seanan McGuire

Well that was a whole heap of fun!

 

The insta-luv was a bit annoying, but the Aeslin mice more than make up for it.

 

And I'm pretty certain one of my work colleagues is a dragon princess. It would explain an awful lot.

Weakest in the series
Tricks for Free - Seanan McGuire

This book was 0% Aeslin mice.

 

It also seemed like it lasted forever. I kept reading and reading and then I would look down and see 42%. 

 

We did finally get a bit more information about Mary and Antimony's powers. However, I can't say that I've been as impressed with the last few books as I was at the beginning of the series.

 

I read this one for Cryptozoologist.
