When Alex Price agreed to go to Ohio to oversee a basilisk breeding program and assist in the recovery of his psychic cousin, he didn't expect people to start dropping dead. But bodies are cropping up at the zoo where he works, and his girlfriend--Shelby Tanner, an Australian zoologist with a fondness for big cats--is starting to get suspicious.
Worse yet, the bodies have all been turned partially to stone...
The third book in the InCryptid series takes us to a new location and a new member of the family, as Alex tries to balance life, work, and the strong desire not to become a piece of garden statuary. Old friends and new are on the scene, and danger lurks around every corner.
Of course, so do the talking mice.
“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
"Discount Armageddon is an urban fantasy triple threat—smart and sexy and funny. The Aeslin mice alone are worth the price of the book, so consider a cast of truly original characters, a plot where weird never overwhelms logic, and some serious kickass worldbuilding as a bonus." —Tanya Huff
"Discount Armageddon is an exceptionally well-written tale with a unique premise, fantastic character work, and a plot that just pulls you along until you finish. This is one for the urban fantasy enthusiasts out there—as well as for anyone who wants something different from most anything else on shelves today. Easily one of my favorite books of 2012." —The Ranting Dragon
"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
“The story is fast-moving and enjoyable.... Assured and engrossing... will keep readers hooked.” —Locus
"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
