Series: InCryptid #0.6
Author: Seanan McGuire
Released: April 9th, 2013
Next up for Short Story Saturday, we have Sweet Poison Wine, written by Seanan McGuire. This would be number 0.06 in her InCryptid series as we continue to follow Johnny and Fran’s adventures.
This time around, the duo have set off to deal to finally have their honeymoon. Naturally, that means they’re about to find themselves in the middle of a mess – it’s a talent. On the bright side, that means more entertainment for us readers!
I think this is one of my favorite short stories from this series – so far. I know I have a long way to go, so I shouldn’t be talking so soon. Yet I really enjoyed this little adventure. Not only did we get to see more of how this couple works, but we got to see more of the world and more of the creatures that live in it—all while having the right balance of tension and humor. In other words, it was pretty perfect.
