Desperately Wanting Wednesday: Discount Armageddon!

Each week, Parajunkee.Com hosts Desperately Wanting Wednesday, a meme that spotlights books that you’ve been desperately waiting on.   Whether they haven't been published yet or you haven't had a chance to get to them, it's an opportunity to showcase the books you just can't wait to read.

I am really looking forward to this one.  I can't think of a better author to tackle cryptomythology than Seanan McGuire.

Discount Armageddon (Incryptid #1) by Seanan McGuire

Cryptid, noun:

1. Any creature whose existence has been suggested but not proven scientifically. Term officially coined by cryptozoologist John E. Wall in 1983. 
2. That thing that's getting ready to eat your head. 
3. See also: "monster." 
The Covenant of St. George was founded to uphold one simple ideal: anything that was not present on the Ark—anything they deemed "unnatural"—needed to be destroyed. Monsters. Creatures of myth and legend. All of them would be wiped from the Earth in the name of Man's dominion. Unfortunately for them, not all the monsters agreed with this plan...and neither did all the human beings. 
After their rather abrupt departure from the Covenant, Alexander and Enid Healy found themselves alone in the world, but with a simple mission of their own: to protect the cryptids of the world from those who would harm them without just cause. It was a cause that would eventually claim both their lives, leaving their children, and their childrens' children, to take up the fight. Now in the modern day, their descendants struggle to stay beneath the Covenant's radar, while defending the cryptids from humanity—and humanity from the cryptids.
