Book Review: That Ain’t Witchcraft: Seanan McGuire

Dear reader I just finished reading “That Ain’t Witchcraft” book #8 in the “InCryptid” series by Seanan McGuire; There’s a mini review for “The Measure of a Monster” novella at the bottom of this review since they both come together.

I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because I had to know what happens next with “Annie ” and the rest of the Price family(Although they don’t show up in this book in the series). My personal review of the book is as follows:

I really liked how Annie added to her family(The story line arc of Annie especially in my personal opinion shows that you don’t need blood ties to be family to someone)and found not only who she was within herself and (in my personal opinion) becoming sure of who she was within the wider framework of her family and (in my personal opinion) deciding for herself to take on the “family business” so to speak and the risk that entails for herself and not just because she was “born into it”.

I also loved how(in my personal opinion) realistic the growth and development of “Sam” and Annie’s relationship was. Overall I can’t wait to see where the series goes from here. I personally rate it a 7 out of 10.

I am adding a mini review of “The Measure of a Monster” to the end of this review because it was at the back of “That Ain’t Witchcraft”. My personal review of the novella is as follows:

I personally really enjoyed seeing more of “Sarah” and the “mice” however I still personally feel like the main storyline for the novella was very rushed. I also personally feel like the novella was a way to set up this next book in the series, especially given how it ended which I am still looking for to. Overall I personally rate it a 5 out of 10.


Tell me what you think.
