My binge through Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid short stories continues here with Oh Pretty Bird. We’re still on Jonathan and Frances Healy, and I adore them so much. It’s been refreshing getting to know some of the older Healy/Price members for obvious reasons.

In a way, this short story still feels somewhat somber, though they’re getting better. They’ll never be fully healed, of course. But it’s something. What will be better is finding and killing the woman/monster responsible for their son’s death.

On that note, we have Oh Pretty Bird. This involves the hunting and vengeance upon a Cuckoo – one who is infinitely more dangerous than the counterpart we’re all more used to seeing in the series. It’s a darker short story, but one very much at home with this series.
