Product description

"The monstrous fun continues." --"Locus" The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity--and to protect humanity from them. Verity Price is just trying to do her job, keeping the native cryptid population of Manhattan from getting into trouble, and doing a little ballroom dancing on the side. Enter Dominic De Luca, an operative for the Covenant of St. George, and Verity's on-again, off-again boyfriend. When he tells her that the Covenant is sending a full team to assess how ready the city is for a purge, Verity finds herself between a rock and a hard place. Stay, and risk her almost-certain death, or flee, and leave the cryptids of New York with nothing between them and the Covenant. With allies and enemies on every side, and no safe way to turn, it's going to take some quickstepping for Verity to waltz out of this one. There's just one question on everyone's mind: Is this the last dance for Verity Price?" Midnight Blue-Light Special" is the second installment of the highly praised "InCryptid" series.

Author information

Seanan McGuire is a California-based author with a strong penchant for travel and can regularly be found just about anyplace capable of supporting human life (as well as a few places that probably aren't). Early exposure to a vast number of books left her with a lifelong affection for the written word, and led, perhaps inevitably, to her writing books of her own, starting somewhere around the age of eleven. The "October Daye "novels are her first urban fantasy series, and the "InCryptid" novels are her second series, both published by DAW and bother of which have put her in the" New York Times "bestseller list. Seanan was the winner of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer; "Rosemary and Rue," the first novel in the "October Daye "series, was named one of the Top 20 Paranormal Fantasy Novels of the Past Decade; and her novel "Feed," written under the name Mira Grant, was named as one of "Publishers Weekly's "Best Books of 2010. She also won a Hugo for her podcast, and is the first person to be nominated for five Hugo Awards in a single year. You can visit her at www.seananmcguire.com.

Review quote

"The only thing more fun than an "October Daye" book is an "InCryptid "book. Swift narrative, charm, great world-building . . . all the McGuire trademarks." --Charlaine Harris #1 "New York Times" Bestselling Author "Verity is a winning protagonist, and her snarky but loving observations on her world of bogeyman strip club owners, Japanese demon badger bartenders, and dragon princess waitresses make for a delightful read." --Publishers Weekly "McGuire returns with book two in her "InCryptid" series, and if you loved the wisecracking dancer-cum-monster-savior Verity Price from "Discount Armageddon," it's a good bet you'll also love this second installment.... The developing relationship between Dominic and Verity is one to savor, by turns tender and sharp." --RT Book Reviews "McGuire has a way with words that transports the reader into the "Incryptid" world and doesn't let go of you until the end.... "Midnight Blue-Light Special "is a fantastic read, full of action, suspense, and humor. It's just flat-out entertaining." --Night-Owl Reviews
