Cryptid, noun: Any creature whose existence has not yet been proven by science. See also "monster."

Cryptozoologist, noun: Any person who thinks hunting for cryptids is a good idea. See also "idiot."

Ghoulies. Ghosties. Long-legged beasties. Things that go bump in the night...and that’s just the beginning. The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity—and to protect humanity from them. Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she’d rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in professional ballroom dance.

Sounds pretty simple, right? It would be, if it weren’t for the talking mice, the telepathic mathematicians, the asbestos supermodels, and the trained monster-hunter sent by the Price family’s old enemies, the Covenant of St. George. To complicate matters further, local cryptids are disappearing, strange lizard-men are appearing in the sewers, and someone’s spreading rumors about a dragon sleeping underneath the city...

A lifetime of training wasn’t enough to prepare Verity for what’s ahead—especially not Dominic De Luca, the Covenant’s newest operative. When a Price girl meets a Covenant boy, high stakes, high heels, and a lot of collateral damage are almost guaranteed.

5.0 Discount Armageddon (InCryptid #1) by Seanan McGuire
Verity Price’s family is not like many others. She grew up dodging her sister’s habit of booby-traps and ambushes and dealing with her grandmother’s regular visits into hell to find her grandfather. Oh and her cousin isn’t human. Her family has worked with monsters, protected humanity from them – ...

4.0 Discount Armageddon
Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuireI loved Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, Book 1) and the entire October Daye series. Nonetheless, when I started this book today I initially had reservations that it might have been written for the younger adult crowd and would eventually leave me out in the cold....

4.0 Discount Armageddon
Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant is scheduled to be the Principal Speaker at Philcon 2017. So enjoying Urban Fantasy from time to time and never having read Ms. McGuire in either of her guises, I decided to give her a try. Discount Armageddon, first published in 2012, is the first volume in the InCrypti...

3.5 Discount Armageddon
After finishing St Mary's I was looking for a new series to read, and InCryptid had been suggested earlier to me. Since I already had the books (and there are a lot of free stories, which you can find free at the author's website), I decided to give it a try despite the very ugly cover. I was initia...

2.5 Flaky Armageddon
I know some of my friends liked this book, but I didn’t. It was OK but too flaky for my taste. The plot was acceptable and the pace quick, but the characters were all flat, without even an attempt by the writer to make them alive. I didn’t care for any of them and didn’t believe in their suffering. ...
