The Ghosts of Bourbon Street (InCryptid #3.1)
by Seanan McGuire
What is it About:
Verity Price and Dominic De Luca are currently putting their relationship through what can only be termed the ultimate stress-test: they're traveling from one side of the country to the other in a rented U-Haul, accompanied only by Verity's colony of Aeslin mice and the contents of her iPod. (Dominic is receiving a crash course in modern dance and pop music.)
But what's a road trip without a hidden purpose? Verity knows she's driving Dominic toward the biggest confrontation of his life—her parents—and that means she needs to start easing him in gently. What better way than with a stop in New Orleans to drink layered cocktails and meet her fun-loving Aunt Rose, who just happens to be a Predeceased American?
Poor Dominic didn't set out to become part of a ghost story, but it looks like that's exactly what's happening, as the old, new, and undead collide all over Bourbon Street.
(Best read after Half-Off Ragnarok.)
What did I think of it:
This free story is a bit longer and more of a story than the previous two shorts I read.
Th Incryptid series and the Ghost Roads series meet in this story as Verity introduces Dominic to her ghostly aunt Rose.
I liked getting to know Rose and to learn a bit more about ghosts in this universe. I also loved getting more Verity and Dominic. The adventure they go on is fun and much too short in my opinion. I wanted so much more of these characters and of the spooky things they encounter. I will continue the Incryptid series, and will add the Ghost Roads series to my wish list.
Why should you read it:
If you love the Incryptid series, you need to read this free stories as well.
