IM ( InCryptid 3.2 ) By Seanan McGuire

Hello to all,

Since my mother's state didn't improve ( more the opposite if i want to see the reality which i don't) i didn't have a lot of reading time so i decided to focus on a couple of novellas or shorts story that i had in my pile and that i could read waiting for the appointment.

Thanks to Amber i've got the books i was missing in the Incryptid series so i didn't have to wait any longer to check the free novellas the author offers just made me even more impatient to go back to the main series so soon you will see more of my opinion on the InCryptid series.

Happy reading!

Description from goodreads :

 Arthur Harrington's situation is...special, thanks to having an incubus for a father and a semi-stable grasp of his "special powers" (if you can call them that). As a consequence, he's always been allowed to stay somewhat sheltered from the family business, communicating with the outside world largely via the computer and his cousins.

Then Sarah got hurt. He's been climbing the walls ever since, trying to think of something he can do to help—but when no one really understands the way a cuckoo's mind works, what can he possibly do to make things better? Especially when she's in Ohio and he's in Oregon?

All he wants is a sign that she's going to be okay...and that she's still going to be the girl he thinks no one knows he's in love with.

My opinion:
          I was really curious to read this novella because if we do hear about Artie in the series, we know nearly nothing about him, he is just cited once or twice and it made him quite mysterious.
This short is in fact his point of view about what happened to Sarah and the consequences since it takes place months after.

I really enjoyed discovering him that way and  i hope we will see more of him in the future.

It was very short, too short but a really moving story and i couldn't help and shed a tear

 Really a great bonus for those following this series but in this case i do recommend to read this after book 3 hall-off Ragnarok, it would make more sense ( yes i have read it in order i just need to write the review)

Score:  4,5/5
