Read Irresponsibly
In the past three days, I've read Pocket Apocalypse, Vision in Silver, and Dead Heat. Yum yum yum. The first one reminded me that anyone and anything can be a monster. The second reminded me that sometimes monsters have complex motives and are trying to be better than they are. The third one just made me cry for love across boundaries of time and pride (and yes, there were more monsters, including a horrible horse).

I think it is time to take a brain-break, though. I'm getting hot and tight across my face.

Dead Heat is on my 'soon' list, as I am currently re-reading through the Briggs wolf universe.

Good deal. This one is an obvious sequel in the Alpha & Omega universe, and is timeline placed "after Silver Born" (but less specific) in the Mercy Thompson series.

Just finished Vision in Silver and Dead Heat. They made my week Better.

Yay! Vision in Silver didn't really go where I was expecting it to, and didn't disappoint me either. Dead Heat was ok on the good side. It's not my favorite, but certainly not a bad job. I do like some of the character continuity from the previous book. And it made me cry twice.

I never got past the 1st InCryptid book. What do you think of the series as a whole? Is it worth it for me to give them another try?

The InCryptid books are rather silly and more of an urban fantasy romp... until they aren't. The first one stays just about as comic-book adventure as it starts. So if you didn't like the beginning, I recommend you don't go on because it doesn't really change tone, only body count. Books 2 and 4 try to end happily, but they both have a lot more serious tag ends to pick up later.
