This is the fourth book in the Incryptid series and the 2nd book in this series from Alex Prices’s point of view. This was an excellent continuation of this series. It was a very fun read and I really enjoyed it a lot. The fifth book in this series will be titled Chaos Choreography and is expected to release in 2016. Chaos Choreography will feature Verity Price again.
Alex knows it’s time to get worried when his girlfriend Shelby start asking questions about werewolves. Ends up Shelby’s home country of Australia is having some trouble with werewolves and Shelby’s family needs Alex’s expertise. Against his better judgement Alex journeys to Australia in hopes of preventing a widespread outbreak of werewolfism. Hopefully he can survive the werewolves and, even tougher, survive meeting Shelby’s family.
This book again follows Alex, Verity’s brother. This time the story takes us to Australia where we meet tons of new and intriguing creatures. Additionally we get to meet Shelby’s family, they are just as crazy as the Price family.
There is a ton of action in here as well as some wonderful cryptozoology. I truly enjoyed this book, it was just a great pleasure to read. This book deals more with werewolfism as a virus, so at times it has a bit of this viral outbreak panic feel to it. We do still get to meet some fascinating creatures as well though.
Most of the story is a sort of mystery where Alex and Shelby (and her family) are trying to track down patient zero and figure out who has and has not been infected.
I love both Alex and Shelby as characters; they have a lot of depth to them and are fun to read about. The Aeslin mice play a huge role in this story as well; they are hilarious and intriguing little beasts.
The story wraps up nicely and I just really enjoyed the whole book. In fact I have really loved this series as a whole.
Overall this is a wonderfully fun and creative addition to the InCryptid series. This whole series is recommended to urban fantasy fans; it’s more light-hearted than McGuire’s October Daye series but just as wonderful. I can’t wait to see what Chaos Choreography holds for us. I also highly recommend McGuire’s October Daye series; it is less action-packed than this one but still wonderfully creative urban fantasy.
