Publisher's Summary

The sixth book in New York Times best-selling Seanan McGuire's witty urban fantasy InCryptid series about a family of cryptozoologists who act as a buffer between humans and the magical creatures living in secret around us.

"The only thing more fun than an October Daye book is an InCryptid book." (Charlaine Harris, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Sookie Stackhouse series)

Improbable, adjective:

1. Not very likely to happen; not probable.
2. Probably not a very good idea anyway.
3. See also "bad plan".

As the youngest of the three Price children, Antimony is used to people not expecting much from her. She's been happy playing roller derby and hanging out with her cousins, leaving the globe-trotting to her older siblings while she stays at home and tries to decide what she wants to do with her life. She always knew that one day, things would have to change. She didn't think they'd change so fast.

Annie's expectations keep getting shattered. She didn't expect Verity to declare war on the Covenant of St. George on live television. She didn't expect the Covenant to take her sister's threat seriously. And she definitely didn't expect to be packed off to London to infiltrate the Covenant from the inside...but as the only Price in her generation without a strong resemblance to the rest of the family, she's the perfect choice to play spy. They need to know what's coming. Their lives may depend on it.

But Annie has some secrets of her own, like the fact that she's started setting things on fire when she touches them, and has no idea how to control it. Now she's headed halfway around the world, into the den of the enemy, where blowing her cover could get her killed. She's pretty sure things can't get much worse.

Antimony Price is about to learn just how wrong it's possible for one cryptozoologist to be.

    "Fantastic Ending!! Unexpected Plot Twist"

    I do enjoy this series and those amazing characters!!! And there are so many different characters and each one is amazingly unique.

    In this book we get to know a new sister who we expect she will do A, B, C, then end at Z. But no way!! This book has one of the best endings so far in this series, and if you enjoyed the series so far, you will love this addition.

    Narration is great, Emily Bauer does a great job in this series.

    Story
    "Antimony hit the field!"

    Finally, we get to hear from Antimony. Yes, she is the little sister, but she does grow up. She made the ultimate sacrifice for any Price and finds it is easier to critique than being in the field. We learn more of the original renegade Price who left the Covent and the mice that stayed with them. If you have gotten this far in the series, you know that it is a wonderful book.

    "Another wonderful book"

    I have yet to read a book by this author that I didn't love. Smart, funny characters and a complex storyline.

    Story
    "Introducing the Youngest Price!"

    We finally get a story about the youngest of the Price siblings, and Seaman McGuire does not disappoint. This story is obviously told from the point of view of someone with less life experience than her older siblings, but well told from "youngest of the family" point of view. Narration was great (as always in this series). I hope we get more of the humorous but very literal Aeslin Mice in the next book though!

    "Darker than the rest"

    I really enjoyed reading incryptid novels period and this one was no exception. it was, however, a lot darker than most of the others and I really felt for the characters and their not so happy endings.
