Seanan McGuire's Midnight Blue-Light Special
The second book in the InCryptid series completely rectified any complaints I had about the first one--I won't get into a plot summary as it's too confusing if you haven't read the first one, but it's a GREAT follow-up. More romance, more intrigue, more bad-ass ladies (and bad-ass female creature-things), more humor, and more hilarious religious talking mice. You know what, usually I save my As for more highbrow books, but this was really super, so: A. And I am REALLY looking forward to the next one.
