That Ain’t Witchcraft Reviews
Some time has elapsed since Antimony (Annie) Price and her misfit crew of friends left Lowryland and her deal with the Crossroads. It begins with them Annie & Sam hunting a murderer in a corn maze before they settle into a property in New Gravesend, Maine but trouble hasn’t stopped following them.
James Smith is on a quest for revenge. His friend made a crossroads deal, and it requires researching books from his Uncle’s house…but people are renting it. Annie catches him, and I enjoyed what tr ...more
Team Seanan forever!
I interrupted my TOB Shortlist reading to fly through this. And even without Aeslin mice (all hail!), it was of course the right thing to do. No one makes my heart glow like she does. Because every one of her books that I’ve read ( which is many!)has been imbued to its core with the greatest feelings of inclusion that even the oddest of ducklings have found their perfect tribe. Le sigh. Big love. Team Seanan forever! This was my favorite InCryptid book yet!
Thank you to #NetG ...more
I'm really not sure what happened with this book because I really liked the first two books that featured Antimony as the protagonist, but I just could not get into this one. It might be because this is the first one where I have listened to the audio the first time around and I don't know if this uses the same narrator as the Verity books but I just apparently do not like the narrator[s] for this series at all. I know I'm probably being pretty unfair but the tone and pitch of her voice just mak ...more
If you've been digging deeper and deeper into Seanan McGuire's InCryptid world, both with this series and her Rose Marshall/Ghostroads series, you've probably begun to have a lot of questions about the Crossroads, both as a place and an entity. Well, do we have a book for you. You may not have all your questions answered in this outing- you won't be getting Thomas Price back for Alice Healy-Price- but you're going to find some satisfying answers in this eighth book in the InCryptid world.

This eighth InCryptid book picks up right from the end of the previous volume, Tricks for Free, and follows Antimony and her intrepid companions from their escape from Florida, through the wilds of Ohio (?), and to a fairly convincing resolution to their situation in a very King-ish Maine setting. There is plenty of supernatural mayhem along the way, mostly of a supernatural ghostish variety rather than of a crypto-zoological nature. (No mice are around for this episode... rather a shame.) There ...more
Annie, AKA Antimony Price, and a group of her incryptids friends are on the run for the covenant. They thought they found a safe hide-a-way in Maine, only to discover that not only did the future leader of the covenant, Leo track Annie down. But they are also sitting on a serious crossroads, with the crossroads ready to claim the debt Annie incurred when they saved her and Sam.
That Ain’t Witchcraft is one of those white knuckle, packed full of everything you’ve been waiting to find out, McGuire ...more
Let me just warn you up front, that I am an InCryptid fan and cannot be expected to be too critical of my beloved series. I enjoy the Price family, in their weirdness and their oddly chosen purpose, to protect the cryptid species in their vicinity. I love the wide selection of creatures than McGuire has dreamed up for them to interact with and run interference for. I enjoy their opposition to and reluctant engagement with the Covenant of St. George. The Prices fight against prejudice in all of i ...more
I received a free ARC of this book via NetGalley.
Seanan McGuire is an amazing writer, and any ratings I give on her work are only in relation to her other works, and how much I enjoyed them.
I liked the setting for this one, and the focus on the crossroads, and the fact that (spoiler) we're coming to the end of the Antimony-on-her-own part of the series, because I find Antimony kind of tiresome. She's not as boring as Alex, but she is a little whiny, and I'm ready for a new character focus. I'm ...more
