The seventh book in the funny and fast-paced InCryptid urban fantasy series returns to the mishaps of the Price family, eccentric cryptozoologists who safeguard the world of magical creatures living in secret among humans. Penance, noun: 1. Punishment for past actions. 2. An attempt to pay for what can't be bought. 3. See also "exile." Antimony Price is on the run. With the Covenant on her tail and her family still in danger, she needs to get far, far away from anyone who might recognize her--including her own mice. For the first time in a long time, a Price is flying without a safety net. Where do you go when you need to disappear into a crowd without worrying about attracting attention? An amusement park, of course. Some people would call Lowryland the amusement park. It's one of the largest in Florida, the keystone of the Lowry entertainment empire...but for Annie, it's a place to hide. She's just trying to keep her head down long enough to come up with a plan that will get her home without getting anyone killed. No small order when she's rooming with gorgons and sylphs, trying to placate frustrated ghosts, and rushing to get to work on time. Then the accidents begin. The discovery of a dead man brings Annie to the attention of the secret cabal of magic users running Lowryland from behind the scenes. They want the fire that sleeps in her fingers. They want her on their side. They want to help her--although their help, like everything else, comes with a price. No plan. Minimal backup. No way out. Annie's about to get a crash course in the reality behind the pretty facade. If she's lucky, she'll survive the experience.… (mais)

If ever there was a cautionary tale for, "Measure twice, cut once," It's this one. ( )

Antimony is on the run from the covenant as well as hiding from her family, so she goes to ground and goes undercover as an employee at LowryLand, a Disney-like theme park with equally soul-destroying working conditions.

It wouldn’t be an InCryptid novel if she wasn’t surrounded by cryptids and the supernatural. Her dead aunt Mary hangs around to make sure she’s safe, and her roommates are a sylph and a gorgon. She doesn’t have her mice or her boyfriend Sam, but plenty of weird stuff keeps happening around her no matter what she does and how much she tries to hide.

When Antimony runs afoul of magic users in the park, she jumps at the chance when one of them offers to teach her how to control her magic. Everything seems great until strange, unexplained accidents start happening around the park and Antimony decides to investigate even though it might blow her cover.

This was yet another highly enjoyable entry in the InCryptid series. I did get a little frustrated late in the book when it felt like the characters were constantly rushing into danger without much of a plan, but it wasn’t enough to kill my momentum. The ending sets up further complications that will surely pay off with dividends in the third Antimony book, That Ain’t Witchcraft. ( )

Part of why it's taking me a while to slog through Antimony's books is that she is isolated from her family (and her mice), which is a big part of why I enjoyed the earlier books in the series. ( )

Entertaining and satisfying, kept me up too late a few nights, another neat slice of the world McGuire’s built (and a cool theme park), but ultimately, neither a novel that wowed me nor my favourite in this series. I’m not turned off the books by any means. This was just … a book that lived up to my expectations.

McGuire’s pretty true to form here. There’s an awesome heroine doing awesome and occasionally stupid things, being proactive about helping people and fixing the problems she creates, witty banter, the power of friendship, mentions of social inequalities and general unfairness—all in a kind of kooky but believable world of magic and cryptids.

I liked that there was less focus on the cryptids here and more insight into the magic, and that the relationship between Antimony and Sam is slow and tentative compared to her siblings’. I liked seeing behind the scenes in the theme park and was wondering for whole parts about who was behind things or why, and how Antimony was going to solve things—but again, that’s me with McGuire’s novels. I think I’m getting complacent. Maybe jaded.

So ultimately, I think I recommend this book if you’ve read the rest of the series, or at least the other Antimony book. I don’t think I can rec it as a stand-alone or starting point. It’s solid, as McGuire always is, but not the book to make you a fan.

Warnings: Dead bodies which, though not graphically described, you’re continuously reminded are dead.

6.5/10 ( )

I loved this book, and enjoyed it a lot more than the previous book. Antimony on the run, hiding in a low budget Disneyland, is a great set up. Better still, this made more sense to me than the last. Learning more about how magic works in this world was also interesting. Can't wait to read the next. ( )
