Publisher's Summary

Could you find a hotel for a harpy? Or a bar for a Bigfoot?Following the disaster that was her last job, Zoë is searching for a fresh start as a travel writer in New York City.
After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position, though, Zoë is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can't take off her résumé - human. Not to be put off by anything - especially not her blood-drinking boss or death goddess co-worker - Zoë delves deep into the monster world. But her assignments turn deadly when the careful balance between humans and monsters starts to crumble with Zoë right in the middle.

Fun and fluffy

Would you listen to The Shambling Guide to New York City again? Why?

Probably not - it was a junk food kind of book, something you veg out with rather than savour. I'm also not the biggest fan of urban fantasy, which I always forget until I read some, but it held up well.


Did Mur Lafferty do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Yes she did, with her varied voices. I will say that her accent is quite jarring, however, especially for a British audience.


Any additional comments?

The romance was obviously predictable, but the zombie problem took some interesting turns, as did the Big Bad. Overall, it surprised me by subverting my expectations.
