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 of a comeback impossible to resist, and she and Dominic are off to L.A. for one last shot at the big time.
Of course, nothing is that simple. When two of her fellow contestants turn up dead, Verity will need every ally she can find—and a couple she wasn’t looking for—in order to navigate the complicated steps of both the tango and a murder investigation without blowing her cover. It doesn’t help that her official family backup is her grandmother, Alice Price-Healy, who thinks “subtle” is something that happens to other people.
Winning this competition may have just become a matter of life and death.

So, after the first four books, I expected to get to know Antimony in this one, but with the Dancing title, I should have known it was Verity. Verity and by extension Dominic are back as Verity stars in something like So You Think You Can Dance. I'm not a big fan of these talent shows, and reading a...
I confess, the less than stellar opinions I read about this book had me almost dreading it. It...wasn't bad actually. Granted, the whole dancing bit got a bit confusing at times, possibly because the timeline seemed to jump in fits and starts. What did bother me is the absolute lack of suspicion d...
Seanan McGuire is one of those authors that whenever I come across a book in a new series I wonder why I haven't been reading this series for years. Chaos Choreography was my introduction to the InCryptid series, and now I need to go read the first four books. Not to understand the story that I re...
Hey, wow, who'd have thunk it -- a positive review of a Seanan McGuire novel from The Irresponsible Reader?!? Next thing, I'll be telling you that the sky is blue, water is wet and J. J. Abrams likes lens flares. But what do you want from me? Seanan McGuire is a great author who consistently puts ou...
