Midnight Blue-Light Special - Seanan McGuire
Midnight Blue-Light Special - Seanan McGuire

Since I have the series now (courtesy of the Hugo voter packet), I thought I'd push on and read at least this one and the next one (Half-Off Ragnarok) before I make a decision about whether to finish the series...

 

This book carries on in the aftermath of Discount Armageddon, with the dust having just about settled from the events described there - the bar where Verity has been working has now been turned into a modern-day freakshow to exploit the gullible and Verity herself is just about coming to terms with the fact that her dance career has stalled completely. She's also still shagging Dominic, who's been sent by the Covenant to see if New York needs purging of its cryptid populace, despite the fact that his character is still pretty much cardboard with a pretty face. 

 

Anyway, in this book, the Covenant decide to check up on Dominic's apparently half-arsed survey of the city and send along a bunch of more efficient operatives to see what's actually going on. This leads to a lot of time for Verity going round and warning the local cryptid populace that Bad Things Are Coming, while also angsting about her boyfriend and which side he'll choose when the chips are down. It also leads to her spending a chunk of the book either unconscious or naked and being tortured for information by moustache-twirling Covenant lackies, so if the latter is an issue for you then you might want to pass on by. 

 

So, I'm going to read Half-Off Ragnarok, as it introduces Verity's brother - we'll see if I find that less annoying and then I'll make a decision on the rest of the series...

Just a Guy: Notes from a Blue Collar Life
Just a Guy: Notes from a Blue Collar Life - Bill Engvall,Alan Eisenstock

 

I Picked Up This Book Because: Curiosity.

The Story:

Bill seems to be the definition of an all american guy. He grew up in a great time when kids went out to play and tv and movies were a treat. He had his bumps and bruises along the way, both literally and figuratively. I enjoyed hearing his story. From the time in the little league dugout to the frat parties to the beginning of his family.

The Random Thoughts:



The Score Card:

Another win
Midnight Blue-Light Special - Seanan McGuire

I love how the purge coming to town creates so much more drama.   With more Covenant agents ready to descent on NYC, Verity Price has to debate how much she can trust the Covenant agent already in town - Dominic DeLuca, whom she happens to be sleeping with in a sexytimes way.  

 

 

 

But when he's called on to choose between her life and his, he's honest enough to say he doesn't know where he'll land.  Can Verity protect her life, the cryptozoological species in NYC, and also land the guy?  

 

Sorry, guys, my description for this is not as good as the first book.  Luckily this book WAS as good as the first.

Going to Try to Get Some Reviews Done Today

Not fully back. Sorry. I managed to finally get my purse organized. I have been lugging crap from my house to work. I am glad we are going into the holiday since I hope I finally catch up on some sleep. Fingers crossed the contractor gets his proposal together so I can submit it to my insurance company and then can start on putting my house back together.
