33:120 Midnight Blue-Light Special by Seanan McGuire

The 2nd book in the Incryptid series.  Verity's sometime boyfriend and Covenant of St. George member, Dominic, has just informed her that more senior members of the Covenant are being sent to NY to check on his work and to determine if the city is right for a purging.  Verity must now place herself and her friends on the line in order to save the Cryptid population from complete and total destruction, all while being unsure which side of things Dominic comes down on.  To make matter more complicated, when the Covenant members show up, one is Verity's cousin from the branch of the family that stayed with the Covenant and considers the rest traitors.  With almost no family in town, can Verity keep those under her protection safe from harm or at least slow down the Covenant long enough to get them all to safety or has she finally been outgunned?

I really like Verity and the Aeslin Mice.  OMG!  The Aeslin Mice which are just too awesome for words.  I like the Price family in general.  The one thing I was sad to see what the lack of her dance career as that has now fallen by the wayside as her dedication to the Cryptid population has soared.  It was one of the things that made her truly unique both in her family and simply in the Urban Fantasy genre.  I understand the reasoning for it but I was still sad to see it go.  It will be interesting to see how things go with the next two books as those will be from Alex's POV although I'm hoping that just because they will focus on a different main character with a different voice doesn't mean that we won't still see Verity.
