My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I haven't picked up Seanan McGurie well known October Daye series, so I came into reading Discount Armageddon a total newbie to this author. And while I was a little leery at first due to the very off leading back blub that did nothing for the overall kickass-ness that is this book.
