It has flaws, e.g. there are dimensions including a literal Hell in which one of the family is trapped (this seems counter to the general scientific approach albeit not inconsistent with a “fantasy” world of magic). So this is an unpretentious book that’s great fun to read and will not offend those who like their fantasy relatively undiluted.

Synopsis

"The only thing more fun than an October Daye book is an InCryptid book." —Charlaine Harris

Ghoulies. Ghosties. Long-legged beasties. Things that go bump in the night... The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity—and 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. When a Price girl meets a Covenant boy, high stakes, high heels, and a lot of collateral damage are almost guaranteed. 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...

Discount Armageddon is the first installment of the highly praised InCryptid series.

Before I write this particular review, I have something to confess. It is something of a fluke that I read Discount Armageddon. If I had realized who wrote it, I wouldn%u2019t have done it, but the...
