If you don’t like details and indepth explanations, then you might want to rethink reading Cryptid. It does get bogged down in the details for us action oriented readers, but I am still so curious about the outcome between the cryptids and the humans, that I must read on.
I took a lot of notes, but will be winging it instead.
The characters….well, they are not your ‘normal’ people and I’m not just talking about the cryptids and crypto humans. They need human blood, so you could call them vampires. Even the humans are off the charts. Smart doesn’t begin to cover the brilliance of the characters, but they definitely lack skills in the sociability department. There are sociopaths and sadists hidden amongst them. Is there more to them than that? Of course. Their minds take them, and the rest of us, to places we would never reach without them.
I do like books that include Earth’s ecology and those that want it to be there for future generations. But the cryptids, at least some of them, want more. They want it all.
I am still trying to figure out how much to tell without spoiling anything and how to rate Cryptids. To me, that is the problem with a series that must be read to the end. It can take a long time to get there, Sometimes I had to make myself power through the long explanations of things I didn’t understand (think Big Bang theory). Just because I don’t understand, doesn’t mean I can’t pick up the necessary bits and pieces to tell the story. Then, there were the times when I felt like racing through the pages because…
Uh uh uh, I’m not saying.
I have only finished the first trilogy. Will I be reading the next one? You bet. I gotta know.
