UF Wednesday is a
stolen borrowed idea from the Time Lord Extraordinaire turned into a Weekly feature by the Book Wielding Harpie
Basically, is about sharing which UF/Paranormal book we’re starting to read that day.
Chaos Choreography (InCryptid #5) by Seanan McGuire
Fifth book in Seanan McGuire’s funny and fast-paced urban fantasy InCryptid series featuring ballroom dancer and monster expert Verity Price.
Verity Price is back on the West Coast and getting back into the swing of the family business: cryptozoology. She’s rescuing cryptids from bad situations, protecting them from monster-hunters, and generally risking life and limb for the greater good, with her ex-Covenant partner/husband, Dominic, by her side. Her ballroom dance career is behind her—or so she thinks. When Verity gets the call from the producers of Dance or Die, the reality show she almost won several years before, she finds the lure impossible to resist, and she and Dominic are off to L.A. for one last shot at the big time.
Of course, nothing is that simple. When two contestants turn up dead, Verity will need every ally she can find with the investigation, without blowing her cover…
After a week off (Christmas and Holidays and whatnots), the UF readings are back to normal. With a slight problem… We’re back to Verity’s voice. Well.. is not really a problem, but I enjoyed last book so much and love Alex so much that changing back to his sister is almost painful. Of course, Seanan McGuire knows best, meaning, after this one I’m pretty sure I want to stay with Verity instead of switching to Antimony’s POV. Which I actually can do immediately after reading Chaos Choreography BECAUSE THE NETGALLEY GODS APPROVED ME FOR THE EARC!!!!! Ahem… bragging rights used, back to the point.
Things I’m dying to see on this book:
(if you have not read Verity’s & Dominic’s short stories, better to skip this part)
1)Dominic meeting the Price clan. After hearing Alex being called “Covenant Boy” the entire book – totally undeserved, since that branch of the family left the dark side of the force generations ago – I’m curious to know how the Prices will react to a true covenant (or ex-covenant) boy
2)Verity informing her parents that they have eloped. I’m pretty sure that will make for some funny moments
3)And since we’re on wishing mode, can I have Alex & Shelby on this one too?
Oh oh… and the mice, of course. *covers Simba’s ears* I need me some Aeslin Mice. I adore them. It broke my heart what happened to them in Australia. No amount of feathers and bones and stones will compensate their lost. I like them SO freaking much that I spent a whole hour speaking like them and saying random things and then adding a lots of “HAIL TO THE GOD OF SNAKES OF SILENCE!” … even my little niece asked *politely* for me to stop. Everybody is a critic.
