This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review The thing I really like about Seanan McGuire is she is different  I might not always be completely into everything she is writing but as an author I think she takes chances and delves into topics other authors shy away from  For instance in this book alone there are Ghosts of various shapes and sizes Witches Humanoid Creatures that are definitely not human A Non Disney Theme Park and just to top it all off Roller Derby GirlsAntimony Price is a Cryptozoologist from a long like of Cryptozoologists  What that means is she hunts monsters and things that go bump in the night  Not to kill them; some of them are really nice but mostly to study them  The killing comes only if necessary  She is currently in hiding and laying low at an Amusement Park from the Covenant a band of fanatics that kills all the things Antimony is trying to study and the rest of her family since they defected a few generations backThis is book seven of the Incryptid series and there is no way you can go into it without reading the others and know what is going on  I think this is a series that even though the main characters change each story builds into the nextAntimony is actually one of my least favorites characters of the Price family even though I really like the first book with her as the MC and I really enjoyed both Verity and Alex’s books although the book I’m totally waiting for is Alice’s since she has been looking for her true love Thomas for 60 years  The one issue I have with this entire book is that this felt like a filler book  Honestly it just killed some time and one really ‘big thing’ happens at the end but I kinda got the feeling this book was just to facilitate that ‘big thing’ happening so other stories could move on from thereThis is my least favorite book of the series so far but that is mostly because Antimony is pretty isolated and on her own no Aeslin Mice with her either  Some of the magic of the other books is the Price family and all the shenanigans that go along with them  While Mary a Crossroads ghost can be a bit fun she isn’t the rest of the uirky Price family and I found myself really wanting some time with Verity Alex Grandma Alice Sarah or the Aeslin Mice even   I was happy to see Sam and a few other characters that were in Antimony’s short stories like Fern a sylph criptid but this book suffered a little from info dumping in a few sections and had a few pacing issues throughoutStill McGuire did come through on the unusual and interesting in trying out a few new things in her story including luck manipulation fighting on roller skates and a monkey man boyfriend I look forward to the next book in this series and what new and interesting plot lines it will bring  Notable uotables “Ain’t no party like a pity party because a pity party only ends when you bury the bastards who made you feel sorry for yourself” –Frances Brown   “Huh” said Fern She paused before asking delicately “Has he actually met you when you were being you or did he only ever meet you when you were pretending to be somebody else Because you can be really sweet when you’re pretending to be somebody else” I threw a biscuit at her Fern laughed as she dodged “You’re only angry because it’s true” Fern and Antimony Price   “Whoever he is marry him and keep us in the style to which we’d like to become accustomed” “He works in Public Relations” “Whoever he is murder him and make it look like an accident but make sure you get away with his wallet” Megan amended  Anitmony Priceand Gorgon friend Megan  

Seanan McGuire » 6 SUMMARY

Amusement park of courseSome people would call Lowryland the amusement park It’s one of the largest in Florida the keystone of the Lowry entertainment empirebut 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 timeThen the. 35 starsI love the Incryptid series the crazy Price family and the huge variety of weird and wonderful creatures particularly the Aeslin mice are just so much fun to read about so of course I was excited to read Tricks for Free even though Antimony is actually my least favourite of the siblings I enjoyed her first book a lot than I expected to but unfortunately this one just wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be Antimony is the youngest of the Price children and she shows a lot of immaturity here she tends to blame her family a lot and act like she was never loved as much as Verity and Alex but at the same time she complains that they're overprotective of her because she's the youngest Which one is it Antimony Either they don't care or they care too much they can't be both at the same time I can understand why she has to keep her distance from her family here but I missed them all in this story Mary pops up a few times but it's just not the same as having all the characters I love around and since she's also separated from the Aeslin mice we don't even have them to lighten the tone a bitWe do get to see a few of Antimony's old friends from her roller derby days but to be honest I've always found Antimony's endless talk of skating pretty boring in the short stories about her so that didn't really help me much Seanan McGuire has obviously spent a lot of time and energy creating her own theme park called Lowryland it's a full scale thing with it's own imaginary characters and lots of fun rides and Antimony is currently hiding out there as one of their newest employees I appreciate the effort that the author has gone into making somewhere that feels so real but the endless descriptions of the place started to get boring after a while It's a bit like having a friend come home from Disneyland and then wanting you to sit through a slideshow of the 600 photos they took the first few are interesting enough but it's not long before your eyes start to glaze over especially if you know you'll probably never be able to afford to go there yourself Some things are only THAT interesting if you're actually there at the time and I felt the endless descriptions really slowed down this storyThere wasn't really a huge amount happening in this book and for probably the first two thirds I was pretty bored which is unheard of for this series Things definitely got interesting when Sam finally turned up the last third of the book was far exciting and it's definitely set things up for the next instalment but I just didn't love Tricks for Free as much as I'd hoped to I still think Seanan McGuire is an incredible author this series is usually so much fun to read and I'm also a huge fan of the

    Thanks to Netgalley and Berkley for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest reviewSeanan McGuire is one of my favorite authors Seriously she's on my auto buy list I love the worlds and characters she createsIncryptid is one of those worlds and I struggle with deciding if it is my favorite or if October Daye is Every time I read one of the books in either series I decide that one is my favorite Seanan series Then I read one in the other and change my mindTricks for Free picks up with Antimony's story following the crazy events of Magic for Nothing There is a shorty included that takes place in between the two novels but I read that last year when it was a Patreon story and I highly recommend reading that one first since it takes up the story immediately while Tricks for Free's narrative starts a few months laterAntimony has been on the run and found her way to a theme park of course hoping to hide from the Covenant in the crowds But of course Seanan never lets her protagonists' plans work out like they expect so hijinks ensue We did see some returning characters both expected and unexpected and made a few new friends along the wayI'd like to say I was satisfied with this one I loved it but it wasn't and doesn't ever seem to be enough I'm already ready for the next book supposedly That Ain't Witchcraft starring Antimony again and can only hope that the next October Daye book's release usually a fall thing can tide Luidaeg joke me over until I can get my next Seanan fixAfter this Seanan has mentioned the next two will be Sarah Imaginary Numbers Calculated Risks and then ALICE Spelunking through Hell A Visitor's Guide to the Underworld Review to be published on release date but damn I need news from her that we are getting and who the POVs will be

    Seanan is my go to girl for Urban Fantasy goodness No matter what she puts her mind to it's always a treatAntimony is here again on the run and working at a rip off Disneyworld It's a bit of a step up from working in a circus and with these many people running around the park either as guests or employees It's slightly easier to get lost in the crowd too and that's kinda the point Our favorite derby girl has put away her skates to become a general employee of hellFortunately she's made some pretty good friends there Her roomies are a blast I especially love the Gorgon Of course even a long employment run can go down the toilet when the death toll rises and secrets get outed It's hard to keep secrets in this kind of world Surveillance everywhere rampant suspicions of employees Liabilities rampantSecret cabals of magicians running nefarious magic on a Disneyworld business modelshudder The horrorThis is popcorn fiction at it's best Try not to burn the park down

    Temporary rating to help counteract the guy who decided to rate this one star before anybody's read it I hate it when people do that Rating to be revised when I have read it

    It's cryptozoology time at BBBOriginally I rated this 4 stars but the I thought about it the I realized that it doesn't deserve it Don't get me wrong it's a good book but it's mostly a filler It sets things for what's to come but the only really relevant chapters were the last 2 3 Everything else was well not boring but unimportant Add to it the lack of Aeslin mice and I was really disappointed However as I said this sets the scene for some future adventures and provided some interesting information regarding Grandpa Thomas and the crossroads I greatly enjoyed the cameos from Mary and Rosie and I hope we'll get books in the Ghost Roads series

    This had pacing issues and no Aeslin mice and really that's all you need to know The previous book introducing Antimony was my favourite of the series so far but this was nowhere near as good Tied bottom place with the second of Alex's stories

    I picked up this paperback in the store on the day it was released but it took me a few days to get around to reading it I went in knowing that the Aeslin mice really didn’t feature in it Sam takes them to the airport and they head for home Would the magic still be there without the mice?I enjoyed the mouse less adventure just as much as the previous books It also helped that there was an adorable novella featuring Mindy Mork Annie’s mice at the end of the book I’m liking Annie better than I did in the previous novel and will look forward to her further adventures in the next one The presence of “Aunt” Mary the ghost also ties in one of McGuire’s other storylines combining the two nicely Obviously I read this because I love the series and I’m a big fan of Seanan McGuire But it also filled a space in my PopSugar challenge a book published in 2018
