Fright Court (2011) Mindy Klasky (Magical Washington)

Sarah Anderson has been bouncing from job to job for years now, while her best friend is settled down with a rewarding job and what seems to be a perfect family. But Sarah’s first night on the job she discovers that nothing on the Night Court is as she expected–vampires exist and part of her job is to be court clerk for not just the human night court, but for a vampire judge and other supernatural creatures.

“Those old movies were about fear of the unknown, about science taking over our lives. Everyone was worried about the atomic bomb, and nuclear radiation, and how we were all going to die a million different ways. The monsters were sort of victims, themselves. I always felt terrible when they died.”

I think what I enjoyed most about this book was how thoughtful and thorough the world-building was, and how Sarah found her place in that world. There were several times when I was kinda giving the story the side-eye, but then CHUNK CHUNK CHUNK things all feel into place.

I was quite impressed.
