Improbable, adjective: 1. Not very likely to happen; not probable. 2. Probably not a very good idea anyway. 3. See also "bad plan." As the youngest of the three Price children, Antimony is used to people not expecting much from her. She's been happy playing roller derby and hanging out with her cousins, leaving the globe-trotting to her older siblings while she stays at home and tries to decide what she wants to do with her life. She always knew that one day, things would have to change. She didn't think they'd change so fast . Annie's expectations keep getting shattered. She didn't expect Verity to declare war on the Covenant of St. George on live television. She didn't expect the Covenant to take her sister's threat seriously. And she definitely didn't expect to be packed off to London to infiltrate the Covenant from the inside...but as the only Price in her generation without a strong resemblance to the rest of the family, she's the perfect choice to play spy. They need to know what's coming. Their lives may depend on it. But Annie has some secrets of her own, like the fact that she's started setting things on fire when she touches them, and has no idea how to control it. Now she's headed halfway around the world, into the den of the enemy, where blowing her cover could get her killed. She's pretty sure things can't get much worse. Antimony Price is about to learn just how wrong it's possible for one cryptozoologist to be.

The newest Incryptid novel follows Antimony "Annie" Price as she travels to England to infiltrate the Covenant of St George after the disasterous giant snake incident in Chaos Choreography. Annie will need to use all her skills, including those learned both in the Brown Family Circus and in the roller derby rink to carry out an investigation right under the nose of the Covenant.

I have been eagerly awaiting this book since I read the short story featuring Annie in Glitter and Mayhem. She's very different from both Verity and Alex, who narrated the previous books in this series. She's sarcastic and tough and when she gets angry, fire tends to erupt from her fingers. I also find it amusing that her attitude towards Verity mirrors my own. One of my favourite things about the Incryptid series is that you can read them individually, though I would recommend reading the various narrators in order. So if you tried Discount Armageddon and were annoyed by Verity's selfishness, go ahead and try Half-Off Ragnarok (Alex arc) or Magic for Nothing (Annie arc). It's a funny series about cryptozoologists and you will fall in love with the Aeslin mice - HAIL!
