pocketThis is the latest in a series about a family of “cryptozoologists” whose self-appointed job is to protect both humans and monsters. As opposed to The Covenant, whose self-appointed job is to wipe all the monsters off the face of the earth. If you haven’t read the earlier books – it’s all too complicated to explain.

In Pocket Apocalypse Alexander and his girlfriend are off to Australia to help her family and their Covenant splinter group fend off werewolves.

Once you get past the truly annoying wittiness of the characters and their obsession with threatening each other with sudden death, this series provides some light-weight amusement. But the forced wittiness is really annoying and I think the only reason I’ve stuck with this series is that I read Seanan McGuire’s October Daye series first. Now that’s a good series.
