Magic for Nothing

Magic for Nothing (InCryptid #6) - Seanan McGuire 8.00   1

Sixth book in Seanan McGuire’s funny and fast-paced InCryptid urban fantasy series

As the youngest child of the current generation of Prices, Antimony Price has always been looking for her place in the world. She lacks her sister’s single-minded drive toward stardom, and her brother’s comfortable desire for knowledge. Instead, she has a restless spirit, a fierce temper, and a tendency to set things on fire with her mind when she gets uncomfortable. Not the best combination for a young cryptozoologist trying to make a name for herself.

With war looming between the Price family and the Covenant of St. George, an ancient society of monster-hunters and witch-finders, Antimony is the best choice to go undercover and infiltrate her family’s ancient enemy... except for that whole “starting fires” thing, but no one needs to know about that, right? She quickly finds that the Covenant is bigger and wilder than she could ever have believed, and is sent undercover again, this time to find out whether a small traveling carnival is harboring inhuman creatures. Will she betray her family’s need for information, or the very cryptids she has sworn to spend her life protecting? Worse yet, if she blows her cover, will she make it home alive?
