“With a cleverly written, imaginative plot and a cast of otherworldly, colorful characters set in the streets of New York, Midnight Taxi Tango takes urban fantasy to a thrilling new level.”—RT Book Reviews (top pick)
Praise for Half-Resurrection Blues
“Daniel José Older is here to save your soul. But he might just terrorize it first…a fabulous talent.”—Victor LaValle, author of The Devil in Silver
“All the best dark urban fantasies are about matters of life and death. Half-Resurrection Blues takes that to the limit. A hard-core, hard-driving fantasy.”—Simon R. Green, New York Times Bestselling Author of Tales from the Nightside
“As real as fresh blood and as hard as its New York streets. A Lou Reed song sung with a knife to your throat.”—Richard Kadrey, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Getaway God

Older's books are a John Woo movie set to a rumba beat, with poetic prose that will have you laughing your ass off as it breaks your heart. You will want to read the preceding book, Half-Resurrection Blues, before you pick up this one.
Dammit, Older. I have STUFF TO DO and I've spent the day reading this. Now getting Book 3. God knows when/if I'm going to sleep. But please, keep writing. :)
While I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as I did the first in this series--but, hey, this is a 4 star book so I obviously enjoyed it very much--I really love the path it put Carlos and his friends on.
As always, Older is a poet. I could devour his words all day long. When he's writing Carlos, his words make my heart ache and soar simultaneously. Just beautiful.
It's a mad dash, like you've been thrown and you are hurtling toward something. Something frightening. Something insane. But you are not alone, and luckily there are other folks who can handle themselves. There's nothing to be done, except keep reading, and wait for the next book...
