  • Steven
    Thanks to Netgalley and Berkley for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.Seanan McGuire is one of my favorite authors. Seriously, she's on my auto-buy list. I love the worlds and characters she creates.Incryptid 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 re...

    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 instan...

    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 BB&B.Originally I rated this 4 stars but the more I thought about it the more 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 s...

    Antimony, Annie, Price is on the run hiding from her enemies and her family. If she went to her family the Covenant could use her magical signature to find them. Her only chance. Find a massively populated area and hope it masks her magic. What better place then one of the happiest places on earth…a Florida amusement park.Little did she know that the amusement park is ran but a magic using cabal, just waiting to use Annie for their own means. T...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyTRICKS FOR FREE, the seventh book in the InCryptid series continues this series' trend of high adventure, exciting storylines, and unique worldbuilding. I am constantly impressed how each book comes off as fresh and full of thrilling plots, thought-provoking social commentary, with warm bonds of friendship and family at their core. I'm never bored reading these books! TRICKS FOR FREE continues Antimony's...

    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...

    Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewI really like this series and I was eager to discover another of the novels. Besides, I was very happy to see that we were once again following Antimony because I loved having her as the main character in the previous volume. And then after all the events, I wanted to know how this young woman was going to act!Annie is on the run, she knows that finding her family would put them in danger. So to try to blend ...

    Loving Antimony's voice in this one.
  • Marzie
    Tricks for Free is the seventh entry in the InCryptid series and one of my favorites, in spite of the novel’s lack of Aeslin mice. (Aeslin Mice fans, take heart! Included with this novel is the account of Mindy and Mork’s perilous journey back to the Price compound, following Annie’s difficult decision to send them home at the conclusion of Magic for Nothing, in a story previously only available to McGuire’s Patreon supporters.) Over the ...
  • Karissa
    This is the seventh book in the InCryptid series a was a wonderful continuation of the InCryptid series. This book continues to follow Antimony Price and her adventures.While Antimony isn't my favorite character follow in this series, I did think this was the best book about her yet and I really, really enjoyed it. We finally get to see more of Antimony’s magic and watch as she struggles to learn to control it. I loved the new characters introd...
  • Alex Can Read
    This review first appeared on my blog. Tricks for Free is quite possibly the best installment in the InCryptid series so far, which I am sort of surprised I’m saying. I love Verity and loved the Hollywood aspects of her books, while Antimony, the main character in Tricks for Free, reminds me of my own little sister and I’m just not that into theme parks. But somehow, the combination of Antimony, theme parks and a special kind of Seanan magic,...
  • Amyiw
    3.5 stars maybe on the high side. Much better than the last with Antimony as the lead.Wow this is like a whole new world at first, and not in a good way, lots of new characters and world building. She is at a theme park as an employee trying to fit in. Really coincidentally she meets up with a couple of old friends, one from high school and one from roller derby days. Still there is no real story except back story and world building at the theme ...

    “Thanks for the vote of murder-confidence,” I said.She flashed me a bright, toothy smile. “I always have faith in you when it comes to murder.”So, I'm in Antimony's corner now. All in. I started out being annoyed with her all the time because she's the little sister and, as such, has all this ferocious jealousy/scorn that she feels toward Verity. Verity's the first character I identified with in this world. Call me protective?Ms. McGuire ...
  • princesspwny
    I enjoy the Incryptid series, and am a huge fan of Seanan McGuire's writing. This is the first book that I have read and not been entirely pleased with; the second half of the book was strong, but the first half was a little meandering and depressing. This is not surprising given Antimony's situation, but those looking for another Incryptid romp with the Price family are likely to be somewhat disappointed. It is, however, a good continuation of t...
  • Devann
    Once again I'm not sure what to say about a Seanan McGuire book other than IT'S AWESOME GO READ IT. Before the last book came out I was kind of worried about Antimony being the new protagonist but I should know better than that honestly and now I absolutely love her [Alex is my least favorite, sorry Alex]. This book had a lot of familiar faces from the previous book as well as several new ones and it was just a really great time overall. I'm actu...
  • Shana
    Absolutely loved this newest installment! I miss the Aeslin mice this time around, so it was great that there was a bonus story about Mork and Mindy! I don't think there is anything that this author could write that I wouldn't enjoy. Antimony is on the run, and is hiding in a knock-off Disneyland. Luckily, she still has her dead Aunt Mary watching out for her, as well as a couple of old roller-derby buddies. And maybe there is still romance in he...

    Antimony Price is hiding from the Covenant of St. George in a theme park in Florida (but not the one you're thinking of), where the sheer mass of humanity can keep her safe. She can't go home without endangering her family, but she does have friends with her. And she may have even found someone to help her control her magic. But then the accidents begin.Recommended.
  • Fate's Lady
    This was basically fun fluff and McGuire's signature brand of snark. Annie gets a job in an amusement park I what I can only assume must have been an excuse for the author to spend lots of write-off time at Disney parks. The behind the scenes angle was pretty cool even though it got a little repetitive. Her antagonists had a sound concept, even though none of them was ever really developed as a character.Honestly, this book was objectively probab...

    **Galley received through a Goodreads Giveaway**Wow. Just, wow.Let me start by saying how much I love Antimony. Of three Price siblings, she's my favorite by far. I was pretty happy marking MAGIC FOR NOTHING as my favorite of the InCryptid books, but TRICKS FOR FREE blew it out of the water. There were more than a few plot points I found easily predictable, but that didn't detract from the excellent storytelling, and I loved the characters. They ...
  • Darlene Cruz
    Unbelievable read. Thank you!
  • Marie
    I truly love Antimony. This book gave us personal growth for her and I'm excited to see what happens when she comes back to her family having these experiences. I missed the mice.
  • Jennifer
    Although I really didn't like Antimony Price in the previous title in the series (Magic for Nothing), I did appreciate her more in Tricks for Free. Antimony is in hiding from the Covenant in an amusement park in Florida, where she has unexpectedly finds friends from her earlier years, and believes she has found someone to help her learn to control her magic. A series of accidents indicates that all is not as it first seemed in Lowryland, and Anti...
  • Lauren
    ARC provided by Goodreads and NetGalley. I like pretty much anything that Seanan McGuire writes, and am always excited to see a new book come out. The InCryptid series took me a few books to really get into, but in retrospect I think that was just because the published book series starts out following Verity, who is not my favorite character. For those who feel like I do, I would recommend trying out some of the InCryptid short stories that Seana...
  • Cristina (a book away from an episode of hoarders)
    No mice? :( or just not her family’s mice? Because the Aeslin mice will be sorely missed (by me, at least) if they aren’t around. Hail!
  • Lauren loves llamas
    If you’ve asked me to recommend a book to you before, you have probably had to live through me squeeing and fangirling over Seanan McGuire before. So, I was initially acquainted with her when Rosemary and Rue, the first October Daye book, came out, uh, a very long time ago, and while I’ve kept up with that series religiously (at this point, my husband knows that I will be utterly useless the Tuesday in September the books annually come out on...
  • Jennifer
    Thanks to Penguin Random House and Berkley for providing me with an advanced copy.I really enjoyed this book. Antimony is my least favorite Price. I can't relate to her, but this book really hooked me and kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. Before reading this book, it had been a while since I read the last Antimony book. I didn't really remember that book, but Seanan McGuire has just enough of a call back to the book that impo...
