Review: Be the Serpent by Seanan McGuire

I can’t believe it – we’re already at the sixteenth (sixteenth!) novel in the October Daye series. And that’s not even counting all the short stories set in this world (if you haven’t read those, then you’re missing out!). Be the Serpent is the latest installment of this series, and it promises to be yet another groundbreaking novel. As with the last several installments of October Daye, Be the Serpent comes with a new novella – Such Dangerous Seas. Continue reading

Review: Seasonal Fears by Seanan McGuire

Seasonal Fears is the second novel in Seanan McGuire’s Alchemical Journeys series, and once again, I find myself transported to a world full of dangers and delights. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, I highly recommend you do so right away. McGuire has such a way with words. Seriously, I didn’t think it was possible to surpass Middlegame’s brilliance, and yet here we are. Continue reading

Review: Into the Windwracked Wilds by A. Deborah Baker

Eee! I am SO excited about the latest installment of The Up-and-Under series. The series is a spin-off from the world of Middlegame. As such, it is written by one of Seanan McGuire’s pseudonyms, A. Deborah Baker. Adorably, the latest novella is titled Into the Windwracked Wilds. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Blocked by Seanan McGuire

The short stories within Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series are plentiful, for which I am grateful. Blocked is my most recent read and the first short story to give Antimony Price the lead. This is set following the second novel in the series – so before Antimony even got her own novel. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: What was I meant to do? By Seanan McGuire

What was I meant to do? Is another short story written by Seanan McGuire, and it fits in her InCryptid series. 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. 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. Alice is the daughter of Fran and Jonathan Healy and a familiar character to those that have read the main series. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: The Star of New Mexico by Seanan McGuire

Ouch. If you thought the last short (Broken Paper Hearts) hurts, get ready for The Star of New Mexico. This is the fourteenth short in Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series, and it tells the story of Jonathan and Frances Healy. 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
