    One thought on “Midnight Taxi Tango

    1. Rick Riordan on said:

      Adult urban fantasy. Older's first Bone Street Rumba novel was very good. Midnight Taxi Tango kicks things up to the next level. It would have been easy and perfectly reasonable for Older to stay with his wisecracking, hard-boiled, half-dead hero Carlos Delacruz as the sole first-person narrator. Instead, Midnight Taxi Tango is told from three alternating perspectives: Carlos; his young friend Kia who works at Baba Eddie's Botanica; and Reza, an emotionally scarred and dangerous lady warrior who [...]

      3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/01/07/bMidnight 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 quite 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 unique series.But I won’t beat around the bush; while I had a good time wit [...]

      "The streets is hungry."It's official: Daniel José Older is now on my authors-to-watch list. I first encountered Older through his YA book, Shadowshaper. While Shadowshaper is a rich, vibrant story, Bone Street Rumba is right down my alley. I love urban fantasy, underpowered protagonists, and political skirmishes in the magical world. Add to that a set of complex, interesting characters, a gritty plot, and some seriously creepy roach dudes, and I was sold. TL;DR: Half-Resurrection Blues (Bone S [...]

      Yes, it's a sequel, but Daniel José Older's books are so much fun, I couldn't leave it out. If you have read the first one - HOORAY THERE'S A NEW BOOK! And if you haven't - GET ON THAT. These books are pure delight. Ghost detectives = awesomesauce. Tune in to our weekly podcast dedicated to all things new books, All The Books: bookriot/category/all-the-

      SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE********That sentiment remains even still, now that I've finished the book. OH MAN. I loved it. Thanks, Older, for using roaches for the persistent creep-out factor--even if there weren't any zombies or freaky long-limbed High Priests, the roaches still would have done the trick. *shudder*It was funnyI'm so used to Reza being a male Persian name--even when it was made clear that Reza was Puerto Rican--I still just assumed Reza was a he. I laughed so h [...]

      I enjoyed the ghost-hunting adventures of Carlos Delacruz in Half-Resurrection Blues and Salsa Nocturna: Stories, but to be honest, I was a bit hesitant to continue simply because SO MANY SERIES. But people were raving about Midnight Taxi Tango (and saying that it addressed the issues I had with the first book), so I picked it up.Honesty time again! It took me like a hundred pages to really get into this book. Midnight Taxi Tango splits the POV between three characters. Carlos, that same half-de [...]

      Look! This man- Daniel José Older- put his FOOT in this one! Wanted to hit him with the book after finishing, it was so damn good! Geez! I was here for Half Resurrection Blues (the prequel- though, it should be noted, MTT can be read as a standalone) even with how he had me reeling emotionally at the end- He been won me over as a fan of his writing but, believe it or not, his writing got even better with this one. Kia Summers (the melanin-filled goddess depicted on the cover) is the badass we a [...]

    9. Deera on said:

      The second in the Bone Street Rumba series. Older is an expert at creating a cast of complex, diverse characters. I loved them all; Reza was my favorite. Five stars for that. However, I couldn't follow the plot of this one as well as Half-Resurrection Blues. I didn't truly understand how the super-natural foolishness was sorted out. It just seemed like one minute beings were wrecking havoc and the next it was all done and everyone was eating breakfast. I'm going to go back and re-read at some po [...]

      Midnight Taxi Tango, which was published today, is the second book in Daniel José Older’s BONE STREET RUMBA series. Things have changed dramatically for Carlos Delacruz, the half-alive agent of the Council of the Dead, who monitors badly-behaving ghosts and spirits in Brooklyn. Carlos has learned a bit more about his pre-death existence, and the love of his life has left him.Carlos and his senior partner the ghost Riley are charged with investigating several strange “random” accidents at [...]

    11. Tammy on said:

      Right now you need to imagine me writing Kia's name over and over in sparkly glitter pen because she is just that wonderful. 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.

    12. Martha on said:

      My adoration for this book has rendered me even more inarticulate than usual, but GODDAMN it is good. Multiple, wildly diverse narrators, disgusting cockroach creatures, a soundtrack led by a ferocious female rapper, babies being born, relationships being repaired, relationships starting, no one giving a fuck about what anyone else does in bed, and a magnificent teenager who teaches all of her white babysitting charges the following call and response routine to check in: “WHAT WE GON’ DO WHE [...]

      Note: I received an advance reading proof of this book from the author for the purposes of research assistance for rights clearance of Argentine song lyrics. No spoilers contained below.I was already a fan of Daniel José Older's work, from his dreamy, lyrical short stories to his sharper, grittier noir-style work as part of the Bone Street Rumba series to his essays on the world of publishing, popular culture and activism. I found out that he began writing in order to contribute more characters [...]

    15. Joanna on said:

      I love that Older's characters are so well-realized: they are crisp in your mind, well-rounded, complex characters. The men and women who populate his fantasy worlds are real men and women--the men can love and the women can kick ass, and vice versa. They drink, they have sex, they love. This realness and rawness (also reflected in his dialogue) makes the fantasy elements somehow seem more possible.

    16. Chris on said:

      Good continuation of the series - this adds several other points of view, which was good, as Carlos definitely wasn't my favorite of the book.

      Got this book & would have devoured it overnight, but being social got in the way. So it took me a day and a half to read instead.That said, it's the much-anticipated sequel to Half-Resurrection Blues, but I'm curious as to how this is going to connect with Salsa Nocturna: Stories, which is how I originally learned about (and learned to love) Older's brand of storytelling.

    19. Sarah Carter on said:

      My goodness! I read this from cover to cover in half a day. And it only took that long because I had to have a nap and dinner. This is a brilliant, pacey, clever read, that builds on the brilliance of Half-Resurrection Blues and adds in even more wonderful characters.This is proper urban fantasy folks, diverse, engaging and breathtaking. So treat yourself. Read Half-Resurrection Blues if you haven't already then dive into this and watch you tea get cold as you get lost in the pages.

    20. Troy on said:

      I will not "OMG YASSSSSS" like I want to. I will restrain myself.I will say that this does not have nearly the cultural references that the previous had, but Older knows how to intertwine the lives and actions of three very different people into a scintillating read. This is more action-oriented than the last, but that's welcome. The surprise ending, the personalitiesis adds up to a great story.

    21. Mo on said:

      Only a voice like Daniel Jose Older's could have brought me back to reading horror after 30+ years, especially gory, bug monster kind of horror. This deliciously rich, nuanced, funny, twisty, vivid writing is worth every nightmare it gave me.

    22. Jennifer Stoy on said:

      This handled ALL the pacing and man pain quibbles I had with the first entry in this series, kept all the good stuff, and kept on world-building this "urban fantasy" Brooklyn. It was just great and entertaining and made me excited for the third book in the series.

    23. Camille on said:

      The book was high action and full of charismatic characters and earthy Brooklyn-ness. But I still found myself throughout the story seeking a raison d’etre for this piece. I couldn’t get the point exactly. It’s as if a well-dressed and engaging stranger just walked up and started telling you about how rainbows are formed. And while the information is interesting, you’re missing the key component: what exactly is this barrage of information in reply to? Also, Older narrated his own book. [...]

    24. Allie K. on said:

      This series just keeps getting better and better. I can't wait to read #3.

    25. Lauren Kelly on said:

      Badass second book in Older's "Bone Street Rumba" trilogy. Five stars for the characters, setting, and world building. Three stars for the plot. I wasn't clear on how it all resolved at the end.

    26. Suz on said:

      4+ starsThis one was a significant improvement over the first, which was pretty good. The story was pretty creepy and kind of horrifying, but there was great character development across all the main characters and most of the secondary. It stopped in the perfect place, with plenty of insight to the direction the story will move in without cliffhangers or next book bait.I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    27. Kimberly on said:

      This book was so much fun to read. There is some great action, and spooky ickiness. But I also, I laughed out loud so many times. Chapter 35. Chapter 35 - as if the author had to give us anymore reasons to believe that Kia is a badass. Daniel José Older crafted a vibrant, diverse world that jumps off the page. How long do we have to wait for the next book?
