    1. I always wondered how the Healys discovered the cuckoos I never expected it to be the cause of a family tragedy along the way Years ago Jonathan and Frances came across a strange cryptid capable of telepathy That encounter led to one happy event the marriage between those two and one tragic event the murder of their young son By targeting the youngest Healy that cryptid ensured that she would be hunted to the end of the world and beyond And now the Healys have finally caught up with her The expe [...]


    2. Finally Finally, they can get justice for the unimaginable wrong that was done to them This was an incredibly emotional story for me I ve been waiting for this since Daniel died.It s hard for me to be objective and actually talk about the story, because I was so invested in what was happening But I did love that we learn about the cuckoos here, and even see how it came to be that the Healys to be Prices learned so much about them.


    3. 3.5 StarsRead all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes Another short in the InCryptid series Jonathan and Fran have finally tracked down those responsible for the death of Daniel It is a harsh reminder that some of the things they have been trying to protect are indeed real monsters It was good to finally see the characters get their revenge As always nice to see the Aeslin mice again.



    4. It s been a long time coming five years in terms of the storyline but several short stories for us readers LOL but the Healy family have FINALLY tracked down the person responsible for baby Daniel s death This is one hunt that will need the entire family to work together if they want a chance of success so young Alice is left with a babysitter while her parents and grandparents set out for revenge.I don t want to say too much about who they re up against or what happens but things get and cree [...]


    5. Finally Frannie and Jonathon got the vindication they needed for what happened to Daniel It couldn t have happened to a nicer person.


    6. Even though it s been years since Daniel was killed, his family has never stopped trying to find his killer This new lead just might be the one to point them to her Great short This story gave a little background on Alexander and Enid too.


    7. Finally.The Healys have caught up with a person responsible for the death of a three year old Daniel Healy They have to leave baby Alice with a babysitter now, that is another interesting bit thrown in because the babysitter is not quite what she seems In Oh Pretty Bird you get about the grandparents past, why they had to run from the Covenant, who was left behind, why they have to hide and so on If I liked Alex and Enid before, I love them now.The build up is perfect I was even worried a bit w [...]


    8. It s interesting to find out the history behind the discovery of cuckoos by the Healys and read about Mary, whom I read about the first time in Sparrow Hill Road, and her history with the Healys This short story is a satisfying conclusion to the tragedy of Daniel At least justice has been served Though I must say that a sad feeling remains in my heart even after finishing the short story I wonder if this is what the Healys feel like This short story is highly recommended for fans of Seanan McGui [...]


    9. Reviewed by Rabid Reads0.10 Oh Pretty Bird4 stars SO I finally learned where all the hatred the Healys are harboring for most Cuckoos comes from It s justified.The less said about this one the better Pretty much everything about it was a surprise, including the babysitter o.O


    10. These short stories are really interesting It s interesting to read about the first encounters between the Healy family and cuckoos


    11. The Healys find out who was responsible for the death of Daniel Healy, and set out to get revenge.Seanan, as always, excels at horror The town entirely under the control of two powerful mind manipulators is chilling in a Camazotz sort of way However, I found that the mind control aspect was diluted slightly by the fact that they never actually take over any of the Healys minds in this particular story They try with Fran, but she s immune to them, somehow, and don t think I don t want an explanat [...]


    12. It s a free short story from Seanan McGuire, 0.10 in the InCryptid urban fantasy series, and revolving around a family of renegade monster hunters seeking vengeance for the assassination of their young son and grandson.If you re interested, there is a chronological listing of the InCryptid books on my website of the live and let live Healys who have seen the error of their ways when it comes to huntin down monsters.My TakeI already know how easily McGuire kills off characters, and I was terrifie [...]


    13. I was so excited to see that McGuire had put out another short about Fran and Jonathan This story was bittersweet because we revisit the story of what happened to Daniel, but it was nice in the fact that we see that Alice is doing fine which we know from the other books, but still it s nice to see and we get some closure on what happened to Daniel We also see how the Healy family found out about Cuckoos, which of course is very important later on in the series with cousin Sarah and the adopted G [...]


    14. Review first published on My Blog Check out all my reviews there.The continuing adventures of Fran and Jonathan Healy It s been several years since their first child, Daniel, was murdered in his bed They have moved forward with their lives and have had a little girl, Alice, but they have never stopped looking for the person who cost them their firstborn Now it looks like Jonathan s parents, Enid and Alex, have a lead but the odds are not in favor of their surviving this trip.It was nice to see s [...]


    15. Episode covers a time in the Healy family history when they get a sort of resolution for their son s death and discover a new species in the process A little longer than many of the other InCryptid shorts, it creates an interesting setting More horror eerie feeling than the novels, it is in keeping with the tone of the early Healy stories A satisfying entry into the series.


    16. Nice to know who killed Daniel RIP Daniel Nice to know about Enid Wish we could learn of the last names of the families that are were in the Covenant Nice to finally see the first cuckoos Are those Sarah s parents


    17. I didn t get all the Cuckoo hate in the main set of books until a read a few shorts with cuckoo s gone bad and well after that you could see why the family is so careful about them.It has been five years since the death of their son and finally the person responsible has been located The family has to hurry and get to Indiana to make sure this is the right person and maybe close the page on this horrific part of their lives.I love how the Healy s always use teamwork and really work well together [...]


    18. I ll lose control of the truck if you stab me, dear You want to know about the history of the Healy clan This is the story you read The family has only encountered cuckoos once before and that s a shaky memory at best Now, it looks like they re up against a few that might have actually mind controlled an entire town I love this family.



    19. This book was really great, getting revenge and vengeance for Daniel, and yeah, of the family first learning about cuckoos


    20. Dang it I wish I had read Stingers and Strangers when they first met Heloise Maybe some day I love Fran and Jonathan.


    21. On the one hand, this is my favorite kind of Incryptid short, one that actually tells a story On the other hand, the events rely heavily on familiarity with a short that is an anthology that I don t own although, brilliant means of getting me interested in buying it, Seanan, well done and so, although it s perfectly easy to put the pieces together without having read the previous story, the completist in me is disgruntled and feels like I m missing things that I would rather know As well, the e [...]


    22. So I thought this was where they discovered the baby, the cuckoo that is part of the family But it just ends IDK but a little off, for some reason.


    23. Originally read November 16, 2014Why is the Price family so terrified of the Cuckoos when some have married into the family Well the very first Cuckoo that the family met killed David to make a point Oh Pretty Bird tells the story of what happens when the Healys track her down, and what she s been up to Turns out the Cuckoos are even terrifying when they deign to tolerate each other s presence McGuire once again shows readers just how weird and scary the creatures in her world can be Sure, most [...]


    24. If you are reading a Seanan McGuire book and you meet a mysterious woman with pale white skin and dark black hair, run the eff away because she is evil Unless you are reading Indexing, in which case you should run away, but not because she s evil, just because you could be collateral damage This story was a bit predictable of course we knew why the whole town was taken, of course we did but it fit so neatly and wonderfully into the series as a whole, and emotionally it did just what it needed to [...]


    25. For anyone who has been reading the Incryptid series these short stories available on the author s website are must reads These stories are great on their own but also provide a lot of back story into some of the characters that are in the books either directly or indirectly and also provide additional information on some of the Incryptid This particular book needs to be read after the others in the series as reading it first would spoil too much


    26. I really liked how this short story fleshed out how the Healy family became aware of one of the notorious Cryptid breeds and how it dealt with the residual connection between Alexander and Enid Healy and the Covenant I d be lying if I said it wasn t satisying seeing the Healy family getting a little payback for earlier events, too and the interactions with the Aeslin Mice were touching, with something of a different tone to those that ve been shown before.


    27. This short story is available on Seanan McGuire s website as a free download Although Fran and Jonathan are fun, and the mice are always humorous, Oh Pretty Bird reminds us that not all cryptids are friendly and interacting with them can have horrendous consequences This story is creepy, but, it really is creepy.
