Chaos Choreography (2016) Seanan McGuire

Chaos-ChoreographyThis is the 5th InCryptid book, and shifts back to Verity and Dominic.

Verity is offered the chance to return to Dance or Die–the reality show she was one before she retired her Valerie persona, and so she decides to take a chance, taking Dominic out to California to compete one more time.

Except it turns out that there is murder and intrigue on the show, and it’s the kind of trouble that Verity and her family are used to dealing with.

Every time I read an InCrypted book, I start it remembering that I was just so-so about the previous book, but hoping perhaps this will be the book I love.

And it’s not that I dislike this series, because I don’t. I think my problem is that everything is just a little to pat, and Verity is just a little to good at what she does, and that keeps distracting me.

On the one hand, it’s hard not to love how much Verity enjoys working with InCryptids.

If I had been able to wall-crawl, there would never have been a day when I couldn’t be found lurking on the ceiling. Never.

On the other hand, some things just seem a little too adorable.

I know you’ve been watching the show,” I said. “I know because your mice have been sending Facebook messages to my mice. They really like the caps lock key. Someone should teach them about proper email etiquette.”

So–although I’ll probably put the next book (because of course there is going to be another book) on my wishlist and pick it up if it goes on sale, I don’t think this series is ever going to be a mandatory pre-order.
Rating: 6/10
