The 1st in the ‘InCryptid’ series. This starts out so well. Verity Price lives in a tiny apartment in NY, works in a titty bar, plans to be a ballroom dancer and protects humanity from monsters. Then she meets a member of he family’s arch foes: The Covenant of St George.
The Covenant are a humourless pack of people who kill anything they deem unworthy of life. So what does Verity do? She jumps into bed with the man. Sigh. At this point what had been fun and witty turns into a typical ‘Anita Blake’ shag and angst pile of crap. This was a disappointment. It could and should have been so much better.
