  • Another fantastic Incrypited book!

    This book picks up right where the last book left off, and like Jorlac math, you can't stop until it's finished!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Rest of Sarah's Story

    Originally posted on Tales to Tide You Over The book has a prologue of when Sarah first met Artie, a cute scene, but also one that grounds us in Sarah’s loss. The first chapter starts right where Imaginary Numbers ends, as though a year hadn’t fallen between the two releases. Imaginary Numbers and Calculated Risks form a duet, or perhaps more accurately, a two-part episode in the style of television shows. There are reminders of what happened before, but where the InCryptid series can be read as individual, if related, stories, these two cannot. Oddly, Calculated Risks can also serve as an introduction to the series as a whole. Sarah realizes in those first moments that the adopted cousins she’d grown up alongside, trained, and even fell in love with, no longer remember her existence. She’s gone from family and more to irredeemable cryptid that should be killed on the spot, cutting the emotional ground from beneath her feet. She’s not used to being isolated. The Prices are forever finding new people in need of family, always growing. But in her case, it shrank with Sarah on the other side. This is the heart of the story. Her trying to convince them she’s their beloved cousin while taking responsibility for the fact that they can’t remember her…or having consented to her using them for the equation. Without specifics, I’ll say the relationships form the foundation of this book. Not only those destroyed and built in these pages, but also those that came before. The biggest plot thread is how Sarah functions with her family, and the love of her life, having forgotten she exists while they still depend on her, as a cuckoo stranger, to get them home. Imaginary Numbers ended in a cliffhanger, but this one has a satisfactory conclusion. There are still consequences to be dealt with, but the big questions, the urgent questions, are all resolved one way or another. Still, this book opens the possibility for many more stories, whether novels or novellas, meaning the series still has room to grow. One such novella appears in the back of this book, even. P.S. I received this Advanced Reader Copy from the publisher through NetGalley in hopes of an honest review.

  • The best series to geek out on

    There is so much to love in this series and in this book in particular. Math, other dimensions, telepathy, sorcery, giant pets. All of this in one book and I still can’t wait until the next one. Calculated Risks is an excellent example of how Seanan McGuire uses her work to raise awareness about issues that come up in any world, including ours, and does it in a way that really gets you thinking in a meaningful way.

    Thanks for your feedback!
