Series: InCryptid, Bk 5
Obtained: Library ebook copy
Why this book?:
I've enjoyed this series, needed an ebook to read, and the timing finally worked out.
Verity has a second chance at dance, although she had already decided her cryptology and helping people - humans and cryptids alike - was more important. But she can't always wonder what if, so she pulls her cover identity 'Valerie' on and heads down with husband (under an alias of his own). But things are off from the beginning, and Verity finds a mess (murder does tend to be) larger than just she and Dominic can handle. So her dad sends unexpected backup.
With new characters and repeats as well as interactions with new cryptids and the more familiar, this was another fun read in the series. The ending that was startlingly chaotic (to match the title) and, while settled generally, sets up for future books; it appears the next book will be Magic for Nothing. I look forward to reading it.
