It’s set between the events of the first and second novels (Discount Armageddon and Midnight Blue-Light Special), but it doesn’t follow any of the main characters that we’re used to.

It’s here! The next Marvel book is here, and I couldn’t be more excited for it. Dark Avengers: The Patriot List is a bit of a long title – yet it is an evocative one for anybody paying attention. Written by David Guymer, it’s a quintessential Dark Avengers novel. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: The Lay of the Land by Seanan McGuire

Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series is far from over, and I’m far from getting through all of her short stories! Next up on the list is The Lay of the Land, the first Alice-centric short in this world.

Review: Horseman by Christina Henry

Fans of the tale of Sleepy Hollow are surely curious about Christina Henry’s take on the matter, Horseman. Christina Henry is well known for her fairytale retellings, usually with a horror twist, and that is why I just knew I had to give this book a try. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Broken Paper Hearts by Seanan McGuire

Broken Paper Hearts is the thirteenth short in Seanan McGuire’s Jon/Fran stories – part of the larger InCryptid series. It should have struck me that this number is an unlucky one long before I picked it up to read. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Snakes and Ladders by Seanan McGuire

Next up in my InCryptid read-through is Snakes and Ladders. Written by Seanan McGuire, this is one of the later Fran/Jon stories in the series – number 12, to be exact. The best part of this story, if you ask me, would have to be Alice and Mary. Continue reading
