Publisher's Summary

Fifth book in Seanan McGuire's funny and fast-paced urban fantasy InCryptid series, featuring ballroom dancer and monster expert Verity Price.

Verity Price is back on the West Coast and getting back into the swing of the family business: cryptozoology. She's rescuing cryptids from bad situations, protecting them from monster hunters, and generally risking life and limb for the greater good, with her ex-Covenant partner/husband, Dominic, by her side. Her ballroom dance career is behind her - or so she thinks.

When Verity gets the call from the producers of Dance or Die, the reality show she almost won several years before, she finds the lure impossible to resist, and she and Dominic are off to LA for one last shot at the big time. Of course, nothing is that simple. When two contestants turn up dead, Verity will need every ally she can find with the investigation, without blowing her cover....

    "This series continues to deliver!"

    In the latest volume of the Incryptid series we return to the perspective of the original main character, Verity Price. She is as fun and engaging as ever and this book is a very enjoyable continuation of the series. More details of the Price family, both past and present, unfold in the background like a second setting for the story. I can't wait to hear more. I hope that Ms. McGuire continues to work from this world for some time to come.

    Emily Bauer gives a skillful performance making for a great listen. I punched the air with joy the first time I heard her cry "Hail!" I have no complaints about her work, but I will admit I wish they would team Ms. Bauer and Mr. Porter, reader for the preceding two books, up as a team. That would be a freight train of fun listening in the urban fantasy world.

    Story
    "Fun, but not my favorite InCryptid book"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was a fun story overall. The Dance or Die crew was a little too obviously the SYTYCD host/judges with different names. For me it detracted from the story. For some people it would probably be a plus.


    What did you like best about this story?

    McGuire gets into what it is like to be a dancer on reality television which I enjoyed. The Aeslin mice are always great.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Unfortunately she constantly mispronounces words (tarot, catechism, obligate, Cthulu, to name just a few), and her accents are atrocious (the British judge/producer was bad, the Irish witch was beyond bad, and I couldn't even tell what kind of accent Dominic was supposed to have). She does a decent job differentiating between who's speaking and does a great job with the Aeslin mice,


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If Joss Whedon was producing it, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy the book, but this will likely be the last InCryptid audio I listen to. I'll switch to print for the next book, because the narration is getting too frustrating for me.

    Story
    "I have really enjoyed this series."

    The series talks about things that I am not necessarily familiar with, like dancing, but it's enjoyable. The series comes from two perspectives, one of a sister and one of her brother. I enjoy the writing and the pace and the bits of humor

    Story
    "Still love it!"

    It was wonderful to be back with Verity Price! I have a bias for this series. We get a wonderful surprise with the appearance of the famous Grandma Alice. This is the time when Verity must make the choice for her life. Will she be a dancer or a cryptozoology? This decision not only affects her but Dominic as well. They are now happily married. Remember they had to leave New York because of the Covent.

    So I am happy as a two-year-old playing in the rain on a warm day. Verity/Valerie is dancing! That has never played a large part of the plot. We meet her friends, she actually has a BFF and her dance partner. Of course when you have dancers, there is always a bitch and that is no difference here. We are taken on a view of the world of competitive dancing. To document the adventure, we have the Aeslin mice! I love them and how every day is a day of celebration. A one point where Verity and Dominic wants a little privacy, they offer the mice food. A mouse said, “you are doing that to get rid of us” LMAO … Hail

    The Price never goes anywhere where there is not a problem. That holds true here. With bodies showing up Verity/Valerie is torn between dancing and saving lives. Of course she can do both. We have dancers, dancers who are monsters (really), Dominic (he took the last name of Price… my man!), mice (Hail) and Alice (grandmother/sister), dragons, and displaced races. We have got a great Price story. As I said, I am biased. Some of the reviews are negative, it is your choice in the end. Hey when is Antimony Price, the younger sister of Verity and Alex get her story?

    "Fun"

    The story is lots of fun. Seanan McGuire has created a fun and unusual counter world full of cryptid/monsters with lots of quirky personalties. The reading is good, very listenable. I'm finding it a little disconcerting that Verity's (now) husband has gone from being a Brit, with a British accent, to something vaguely Indian sounding. But by and large the characterizations are very good.

    "Highly Imaginative! Immensely entertaining!"

    Once again the author creates a highly entertaining story the narrator delivers with an impeccible performance! The partnership between Seanan McGuire and Emily Bauer is one of the most successful parternerships in audible.They never fail to deliver. Once again this is a must listen!

    "good story but I didn't like the male voices"

    I am happy with the story and like having Verity and Dominic back in action. I thought the narrator did well on the female voices but the men were awful and spoiled the feeling for me.

    "Do her books have to end?"

    Great book, of course. I am always so invested in the characters, plot, world that I dread when Seanan's books come to a end.

    Story
    "Entertaining... but"

    Very entertaining but the Narrator was beyond horrid... the accents were very very bad. The story was ok... I was kind of annoyed that Verity kept talking about her dance alter ego describing how different she was from Verity...
    I also found it annoying that Verity pretty much outed her whole fam on live camera... saying she put out a warning to the Coven... really all she did was put a bullseye on everything price... that was a stupid move. Im also really tired of lazy authors writing from one point of view... one person guessing what everybody else thinks... Another thing that is annoying but seems to be a trend.
    The series is really good except for Verity's brother's books... I adore Alice!! So I will not give up on this series due to minor irritations... but if Emily narrates again then I will buy the book...
