Verity (Very) Price is a cryptozoologist/competition dancer, her family comes from a long line of cryptozoologists, rogue cryptozoologists in fact. Living for a time in Manhattan to pursue her professional dance career Very also uses this as a chance to keep an eye on the East Coast cryptid populations, protecting when needed and well eliminating as necessary. Her family went rogue from the Covenant (of St George) when they realized that not all cryptids are bad, the world is not necessarily a better place without cryptids (apparently unicorns kept cholera at bay!) and not all cryptozoologists can think outside the box (ahem Covenant i am looking your way). This was a fun little intro to a new series by one of my fav authors, check it out!
