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.

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.
