I really can’t get enough of the locations in these novels. They’re all so inventive and weird but in a believable way, and they’re all places you would absolutely believe are haunted. This one was fun and engaging as always, and I really want to see a garden like the one in the story.
This was an excellent entry in the InCryptid world. Lots of action and some really tense and dramatic events. It did end on something of a cliffhanger, which it really had to, but I really don’t love it. But it’s a really great read.
I really enjoyed the characters and learning more about them. The atmosphere and the way the town is almost a character were really good, too. There were several places where I felt like the story was moving really slowly, though, so I couldn’t go all the way to five stars.
I really enjoyed this story and all the mysterious happenings in this little town. The only reason I’m only giving it four stars is that there are a lot of unanswered and half-answered questions at the end. It does seem perfectly set up for a sequel, though.
This was another great adventure, fast paced and constantly twisting. I have really been enjoying the movement and almost ensemble cast feel of the Antimony stories, and I’m excited that it seems like we’re going to get to see more of at least some of these characters. I also really enjoyed the novella at the end that seems to be leading to the next story and also answered an important question that popped up during the novel.
This is the next bit of Antimony’s story, and it’s just as compelling and fast paced as Magic for Nothing. The only downside to these stories is that I can’t read fast enough to just pull it in all at once and completely immerse myself. Don’t tell Verity, but Antimony is my favorite, and I could read stories about her all day long.
This was so good! I couldn’t read fast enough, and I was so worried about the characters at the end, and I could not put it down even though I was so tired. I stayed up way too late, and I would do it again! Worth it. But it did break my heart just a little bit (okay, maybe a lot) there at the end.
This is my favorite InCryptid so far! The dancing and dialogue and relationships! It was fabulous, and I stayed up way too late reading, but it was worth it. And that ending! I have one little complaint–I think the end of the competition meant that Verity got off easy with making her decision, but she was already leaning that way anyhow, so it’s okay.
This was light and fun. A great book when you’re really busy and need something that gives you a fun story without pressure and angst. My one complaint is that many of the characters sounded the same, so it was hard to tell them apart from their dialogue. But I still enjoyed it.
Warning: this is a Charles de Lint book, so I am wildly biased because I love everything he does. But you should read this.
I found myself weepy in the early pages of this book because I was so happy to be back in Newford. Later, I was a little uncertain. It was Newford, but it was focused on new people and new locations. Then I remembered that places and people change and grow, and this has happened in Newford. And I got a delightful check-in with old friends and found some new ones. Oh, and the story? So good! Really full of adventure and excitement. I’m hoping to see more of Juniper Wiles at some point.
