typical of most the urban fantasy mix that is out there except Verity is a hot mess, in the worst connotation of that phrase. ( )

An inventive UF by Seanan McGuire, with a fun change in tone from her more serious October Daye books. I'm not wholly sold on the ballroom-dancer-who-is-also-a-monster-hunter angle, nor is Dominic on my Top 10 Hotties list, but the Mice are funny and the world McGuire created is one that I'd like to explore further.

Much too entertaining. I don't much care for urban fantasy and this proudly bears the hallmarks - but with enough self-conscious winks to the reader and sufficiently amusing pizzazz to win me over. The Aeslin mice and the fact 'cuckoo' cousin Sarah's surname is Zellaby were icing on the cake. ( )

Sadly I wasn't impressed in the least. It looked and sounded good, but failed to deliver quality. ( )

silly (although not as silly as anticipated) and entertaining ( )

First words
Verity danced circles around the living room, her amateurish pirouettes and unsteady leaps accompanied by cheers and exultations from the horde of Aeslin mice perched on the back of the couch.

Book description
Ghoulies. Ghosties. Long-legged beasties. Things that go bump in the night... The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity—and humanity from them. Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she'd rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in professional ballroom dance. Sounds pretty simple, right? It would be, if it weren't for the talking mice, the telepathic mathematicians, the asbestos supermodels, and the trained monster-hunter sent by the Price family's old enemies, the Covenant of St. George. When a Price girl meets a Covenant boy, high stakes, high heels, and a lot of collateral damage are almost guaranteed. To complicate matters further, local cryptids are disappearing, strange lizard-men are appearing in the sewers, and someone's spreading rumors about a dragon sleeping underneath the city...
