Publisher's Summary

The seventh book in the funny and fast-paced InCryptid urban fantasy series returns to the mishaps of the Price family, eccentric cryptozoologists who safeguard the world of magical creatures living in secret among humans.
Penance, noun:
1. Punishment for past actions.
2. An attempt to pay for what can't be bought.
3. See also "exile."
Antimony Price is on the run. With the Covenant on her tail and her family still in danger, she needs to get far, far away from anyone who might recognize her - including her own mice. For the first time in a long time, a Price is flying without a safety net. Where do you go when you need to disappear into a crowd without worrying about attracting attention? An amusement park, of course.
Some people would call Lowryland the amusement park. It's one of the largest in Florida, the keystone of the Lowry entertainment empire...but for Annie, it's a place to hide. She's just trying to keep her head down long enough to come up with a plan that will get her home without getting anyone killed. No small order when she's rooming with gorgons and sylphs, trying to placate frustrated ghosts, and rushing to get to work on time.
Then the accidents begin. The discovery of a dead man brings Annie to the attention of the secret cabal of magic users running Lowryland from behind the scenes. They want the fire that sleeps in her fingers. They want her on their side. They want to help her - although their help, like everything else, comes with a price.
No plan. Minimal backup. No way out. Annie's about to get a crash course in the reality behind the pretty facade. If she's lucky, she'll survive the experience.

Verrrrryyyy slow... feels like it has alot of filler

This book was very hard for me to finish. I even stopped listening to this book to start and finish another book. This story did not have much action... it goes on and on about the main character missing her family and how much it sucks to have to hide. The author explains EVERYTHING in painful detail... feels like to drag the story along. This story could have been done in 2 hours if not less.

I was anxious to hear more of “Melody’s” story... now I dont care to ever hear her story Again...

An excellent addition to the Incryptid series.

I will be honest I want more. I wish October daye wasn't a thing and Incryptid was up to Book 15 and that Seanan McGuire was teaming up with Jim Butcher to write side books about his female characters in his world.. like a whole series on Elaine.

At their core, her main characters are people I have absolutely nothing in common with. Professional dancing, Roller Derby, Marrying an attractive woman from Australia... the wonderful world of cryptozoology! that's it I'm an absolutely huge fan. I knock one star off overall for a lack of mice.

I especially like that this is not a Fellowship of St George orientated story. The lack of new Incryptid folks and animals worked because it wasn't necessary for the story that was being told, though it would have been awesome if there were a lot of Chupacabras - because that's just a weird awesome thing.

good stuff five stars all around except for the four stars.
