The newest Incryptid novel follows Antimony "Annie" Price as she travels to England to infiltrate the Covenant of St George after the disasterous giant snake incident in Chaos Choreography. Annie will need to use all her skills, including those learned both in the Brown Family Circus and in the roller derby rink to carry out an investigation right under the nose of the Covenant.

I have been eagerly awaiting this book since I read the short story featuring Annie in Glitter and Mayhem. She's very different from both Verity and Alex, who narrated the previous books in this series. She's sarcastic and tough and when she gets angry, fire tends to erupt from her fingers. I also find it amusing that her attitude towards Verity mirrors my own. One of my favourite things about the Incryptid series is that you can read them individually, though I would recommend reading the various narrators in order. So if you tried Discount Armageddon and were annoyed by Verity's selfishness, go ahead and try Half-Off Ragnarok (Alex arc) or Magic for Nothing (Annie arc). It's a funny series about cryptozoologists and you will fall in love with the Aeslin mice - HAIL!
