Sueamish alert Thar be cockroaches So Many CockroachesA lot of interesting things get revealed in this one including who killed Carlos and it was not what I was expecting at all It makes some things even harder to swallow actually and makes me curious about what else is going on Was Carlos chosen for a reason view spoilerAnd who is Aisha I do suspect the Council had something to do with it even so after this book and maybe that s why Sasha doesn t trust them now hide spoiler

Midnight Taxi Tango Bone Street Rumba #2 review ç 3 The author of Half Resurrection Blues returns in a new Bone Street Rumba Novel a knife edge noir shaded urban fantasy of crime after death The streets of New York are hungry tonight   Carlos Delacruz straddles the line between the living and the not so alive As an agent for the Council of the Dead h. 3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Taxi Tango is the second book of the vividly imaginative Bone Street Rumba series I can honestly say I ve never encountered an urban fantasy uite like this and I said as much in my review of the first book last year which I enjoyed immensely I knew as soon as I was finished reading Half Resurrection Blues that I wanted to continue this cool and uniue seriesBut I won t beat around the bush while I had a good time with Midnight Taxi Tango and thought it was overall a fun and entertaining read there were a few issues that I thought made this seuel weaker than its predecessor First a uick rundown of the story to provide context for my points below The series main character is Carlos Delacruz a man who is not uite alive and also not uite dead His time before is a complete blank all he knows is that he died and was brought back to life into this state of in between Now he works as a kind of enforcer for the New York Council of the Dead tasked to hunt down and execute the city s errant ghosts or any supernatural denizens who misbehaveMost recently a string of paranormal related murders have been occurring around Brooklyn s Von King Park and naturally Carlos is sent to investigate On one such trip to the park his team actually manages to catch and stop an attack in progress and the would be victim happens to be someone Carlos knows Kia a teenage girl who works for one of his good friends The incident has terrified her especially now that she has been touched by the ghost sight opening her eyes to a whole other side of New YorkCarlos himself isn t in the best frame of mind either The events of the last year have left him heartbroken and depressed even though he tries hard not to admit it Sasha the woman he loves had walked out of his life following his act of unspeakable betrayal and he still lives with the guilt every day And herein lies one of my biggest issues with this book The coolheaded and capable Carlos I was first introduced to in Half Resurrection Blues is a shadow of himself in Midnight Taxi Tango As soon as he thinks about Sasha or anything related to her he turns into a complete and utter mess Even though I understood on multiple levels where he was coming from he would have gotten himself killed many times over had others not stopped him from rushing headlong into danger I knew something was wrong the moment Carlos became someone I could no longer root for and in fact many times over the course of this book I silently hoped to myself that Sasha would never forgive himInitially I was also excited when I found out Kia was a POV character in this book There was a real noticeable lack of female presence in the first book so if nothing else I was very happy that Daniel Jos Older beefed up this aspect in Midnight Taxi Tango I also remember meeting Kia from Half Resurrection Blues and she was one cool girl so I was looking forward to getting to know her better Turns out I was right in that there were many things I loved about her like her courage and her strength and resourcefulness But Kia is also a teenager and there were a lot of other things I found off putting like her petulance and her judgmental attitude I also have no problem with profanity in books especially in prose and in dialogue where they add feeling to the characters and story but Kia s chapters freuently uoted song lyrics riddled with F bombs and I felt these served little purpose other than to make want to me skip through large swaths of her narrative to be honestThere was a surprise third POV in this book however and that was Reza Now Reza I adored I loved absolutely everything about her from her backstory to the way she talks and operates I wish I could say but since this is the grand debut of her character and her colleagues midnight taxi service it would be way fun to discover her story for yourselves Suffice to say she is a force to be reckoned with cool calm and always prepared for anything I loved her take no prisoners attitude and the way she pretty much took over Carlos role in this book as the one who got things done I really hope she ll return for future books if not as a POV character again then at least in a supporting roleI have a few minor uibbles but in general they can be summed up by the fact I just didn t feel this book was as well put together as the first one I only found out after I finished that a few scenes in this novel were apparently drawn from a couple of previously published short stories by the author and maybe that had something to do with it In some ways this story did feel like an amalgamation of several parts cobbled together with the seams not too carefully hidden and the final product needed some detailing and polish For example I felt the villains in this book were crudely sketched and had a Monster of the Week feel to them like they were specifically written for this book and then meant to be thrown away never to be dealt with again Overall I also felt the prose in this seuel lost a lot of that poetic uality that made me fall in love with the writing in Half Resurrection BluesStill I thought Midnight Taxi Tango was a good book Technically you can also jump into it without having read the first book because Older does a fantastic good job recapping the story If you enjoy action you might even prefer this seuel because it contains a lot suspense and excitement As a series however I think the next book will have to step up its game if Bone Street Rumba is to distinguish itself from all the urban fantasy available out there No matter what though I m too invested in Carlos story to stop now so I definitely have plans to continue I m curious about the wider story arc and I have to admit a part of me is really looking forward to see Carlos and his pals rain hell down on the NYCOD
