The Girl in the Green Silk Gown by Seanan McGuire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This second book in the psychopomp business of Road Magic is well worth sticking a thumb up for. Or two.
But beyond the wonderful ideas of putting on the miles to get more powerful or always having a place to stay in ghostly diners or being friends with a bunch of dead people and half-cognizant ocean gods, I have to say I kinda fell over backward for the wonderfully wicked twist on Orpheus and Euridice. :) Seriously.
Where else could we twist the events changing Rose's "life" into a quest to end it by literally going to Hades and making a similar deal?
Only with Seanan. Totally cool.
I really wanna see the pretty boy Bobby get his. Maybe the next book.
You know what? I think I may like this new UF of hers even more than the Incryptid series! It has so much solid going on and even though it IS tied to the Incryptid, at least obliquely, it certainly doesn't depend on it.
Go psychopomp, go! :)
