The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity - and humanity from them. Meet Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she'd rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan to pursue her dream career in professional ballroom dance. That is, until talking mice, telepathic mathematicians, and a tangle with the Price family's old enemies, the Covenant of St. George, get in her way.

The story itself was very enjoyable. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is the delivery of the narration was irritatingly slow for my taste. I ended up listening at 1.25 speed which I have never felt the need to do before. That is just a minor complaint so overall I definately recommend giving it a listen. I'm just about to get stuck into book 2!
