Endangered, adjective: Threatened with extinction or immediate harm. Australia, noun: A good place to become endangered. Alexander Price has survived gorgons, basilisks, and his own familyno small feat, considering that his family includes two telepaths, a reanimated corpse, and a colony of talking, pantheistic mice. Still, he’s starting to feel like he’s got the hang of things
at least until his girlfriend, Shelby Tanner, shows up asking pointed questions about werewolves and the state of his passport. From there, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump to Australia, a continent filled with new challenges, new dangers, and yes, rival cryptozoologists who don’t like their visiting expert” very much. Australia is a cryptozoologist’s dream, filled with unique species and unique challenges. Unfortunately, it’s also filled with Shelby’s family, who aren’t delighted by the length of her stay in America. And then there are the werewolves to consider: infected killing machines who would like nothing more than to claim the continent as their own. The continent which currently includes Alex. Survival is hard enough when you’re on familiar ground. Alex Price is very far from home, but there’s one thing he knows for sure: he’s not going down without a fight.

One of the main attractions is the world fi...
I was really keen to read this 4th novel in the Incryptid series. After all, the adventures were coming to Australia! Unfortunately, for me, "Pocket Apocalypse" didn't have the energy, the crazy, delightful exuberance, that was so strongly part of "Discount Armageddon" that started the series. ...
I like this series. I also like that this series doesn't follow the same person exclusively. So we're at book 2 with Alex. He's off to Australia with his girlfriend, to confront werewolves. In this world, lycanthropy and shifter are not the same thing. Lycanthropy-w is a virus that affects mammals...
Airplanes: essentially buses that fly, and hence have the potential to drop out of the sky at any moment, spreading your insides -- which will no doubt become your outsides sometime during the collision -- across whatever you happen to have been flying over. Since we were flying mainly over ocean, I...
