The Lay of the Land

The Lay of the Land

Thomas Price has seen the world, has studied and fought unbelievable creatures on every continent, and knows more about cryptids than almost anyone else alive. But he's never seen anyplace like Buckley Township, Michigan, and he's certainly never met anyone like Alice Healy, who is far too young for him, far too much a Healy for him, and far too wild to disregard. This is Thomas Price has seen the world, has studied and fought unbelievable creatures on every continent, and knows more about cr...

    I've been dying for some Thomas and Alice and to get more backstory on them. This was just what the cryptozoologist ordered! Here's hoping it's not too long before the next installment in their story! ...

    I'm so excited that Seanan McGuire decided to write another story about Alice and Thomas, I'm actually hoping that she'll write a whole series of shorts about their early years together just like we got for Fran and Jonathan. Then I'm hoping we get at least one full length book about A...

    I really have to say that Alice is easily one of my favorite characters in the Incryptid world. The only characters ranking higher have whiskers and shout "Hail!" in tiny, fervent voices. ...

    Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com Somehow I missed this short story in the InCryptid series until now. As you may or may not know, almost all short stories can be downloaded for free from the author's website and they fill in the gaps about the family and ...

    5 stars Good to see that Alice and Thomas are getting to know each other better. Glad that Alice was able to show Thomas some of the inhabitants. Can't wait to read more stories with Alice and Thomas!!!! ...

    UNCLE NAGA, you guys. Alice mentions Naga from Snakes and Ladders, and she calls him UNCLE Naga, which means they've kept in touch. That is amazing. This story follows directly from The Way Home. Jonathan yells at Alice about being at Thomas Price's house, and forbids her from ever ...

    I love these little shorts, love that we get more with characters that we only know as ancestors. It's interesting to see Alice as a teen, to see her a bit timid at times, but when in her element she shines. Thomas watching Alice seems to open his eyes in many ways. ...

    Another 'Incryptid' short story - it's a little slight and doesn't really cover new ground, as it fleshes out something we already know -but it was a quick and engaging read. ...

    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads 0.21 - The Lay of the Land 4.0 stars Yay! Finally an extra about Thomas and Alice. It's just the beginning of their acquaintance, and their age difference is currently inappropriate for a romantic relationship, but the foundation gets laid, so hooray f...

    "I had a very nice time Mr. Price I'll be back as soon as I can to check on the tailypo I hope he'll be okay I won't blame you if he's not okay bye!" Ah, Alice. Okay, so Thomas Price has decided to stay and buck the system. He's far too old for a sixteen-year-old Alice, but you know...

    The beginning of the courtship of Alice Healy and Thomas Price. This was a cute short that picks up right after Alice & Thomas's first encounter, which is nice because I very much wanted this part shaded in. ...

    It's interesting because I never realized that Johnny would get as weirdly conservative as he did--I thought he grew up with the risks, you know? Also I'm not sure how I feel about a ten year age gap....but I'm excited for what happens next! ...

    Great short story! I enjoyed seeing these two together, they were so cute! Can't wait to read more! ...

    ????? ...

    Alice properly meeting Thomas and new cryptids... Fantastic. ...

    Alice & Thomas! ...

    This was fun. Glad to see Mary is still about. Poor Jonathan. He's really going to have to work out his pain. ...

    Good, more Alice and Thomas. Interested to see how this progresses -- oh, there are only 3 shorts. Sigh. I hope their story unfolds more later. ...

    Any story featuring crossroads ghost Mary Dunlavy gets my thumbs up! Plus, Alice is a super cute character who goes along so well with Thomas that I'm getting my hopes up for some romance, later, like some years down the road... ...

    More Alice and Thomas! Finally! This is a pretty sedate story. Alice goes to visit Thomas. They save a Tailypo. Alice plays with knives. Looking forward to something with a bit more plot and excitement next time, but it is nice to see where the characters start and who they are. ...

    Yay, another story in the Price family's escapades... this time Seanan McGuire is following Alice Healey and Thomas Price... and it takes place right after the story The Way Home... So get in on the beginning of this story arc by grabbing the ebooks right off Seanan's webpage... ...

    I'm really digging what Seanan is doing with Jonathan's character arc here. You can see how he ended up making the decisions that he is, and also you can see how they're still all the wrong ones for Alice. Being a good man and a good husband doesn't mean he's necessarily a good father....

    I've been dying for some Thomas and Alice and to get more backstory on them. This was just what the cryptozoologist ordered! Here's hoping it's not too long before the next installment in their story! ...

    I'm so excited that Seanan McGuire decided to write another story about Alice and Thomas, I'm actually hoping that she'll write a whole series of shorts about their early years together just like we got for Fran and Jonathan. Then I'm hoping we get at least one full length book about A...

    I really have to say that Alice is easily one of my favorite characters in the Incryptid world. The only characters ranking higher have whiskers and shout "Hail!" in tiny, fervent voices. ...

    Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com Somehow I missed this short story in the InCryptid series until now. As you may or may not know, almost all short stories can be downloaded for free from the author's website and they fill in the gaps about the family and ...

    5 stars Good to see that Alice and Thomas are getting to know each other better. Glad that Alice was able to show Thomas some of the inhabitants. Can't wait to read more stories with Alice and Thomas!!!! ...

    UNCLE NAGA, you guys. Alice mentions Naga from Snakes and Ladders, and she calls him UNCLE Naga, which means they've kept in touch. That is amazing. This story follows directly from The Way Home. Jonathan yells at Alice about being at Thomas Price's house, and forbids her from ever ...

    I love these little shorts, love that we get more with characters that we only know as ancestors. It's interesting to see Alice as a teen, to see her a bit timid at times, but when in her element she shines. Thomas watching Alice seems to open his eyes in many ways. ...

    Another 'Incryptid' short story - it's a little slight and doesn't really cover new ground, as it fleshes out something we already know -but it was a quick and engaging read. ...

    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads 0.21 - The Lay of the Land 4.0 stars Yay! Finally an extra about Thomas and Alice. It's just the beginning of their acquaintance, and their age difference is currently inappropriate for a romantic relationship, but the foundation gets laid, so hooray f...

    "I had a very nice time Mr. Price I'll be back as soon as I can to check on the tailypo I hope he'll be okay I won't blame you if he's not okay bye!" Ah, Alice. Okay, so Thomas Price has decided to stay and buck the system. He's far too old for a sixteen-year-old Alice, but you know...

    The beginning of the courtship of Alice Healy and Thomas Price. This was a cute short that picks up right after Alice & Thomas's first encounter, which is nice because I very much wanted this part shaded in. ...

    It's interesting because I never realized that Johnny would get as weirdly conservative as he did--I thought he grew up with the risks, you know? Also I'm not sure how I feel about a ten year age gap....but I'm excited for what happens next! ...

    Great short story! I enjoyed seeing these two together, they were so cute! Can't wait to read more! ...

    Alice properly meeting Thomas and new cryptids... Fantastic. ...

    Alice & Thomas! ...

    This was fun. Glad to see Mary is still about. Poor Jonathan. He's really going to have to work out his pain. ...

    Good, more Alice and Thomas. Interested to see how this progresses -- oh, there are only 3 shorts. Sigh. I hope their story unfolds more later. ...

    Any story featuring crossroads ghost Mary Dunlavy gets my thumbs up! Plus, Alice is a super cute character who goes along so well with Thomas that I'm getting my hopes up for some romance, later, like some years down the road... ...

    More Alice and Thomas! Finally! This is a pretty sedate story. Alice goes to visit Thomas. They save a Tailypo. Alice plays with knives. Looking forward to something with a bit more plot and excitement next time, but it is nice to see where the characters start and who they are. ...

    UNCLE NAGA, you guys. Alice mentions Naga from Snakes and Ladders, and she calls him UNCLE Naga, which means they've kept in touch. That is amazing. This story follows directly from The Way Home. Jonathan yells at Alice about being at Thomas Price's house, and forbids her from ever ...

    I'm really digging what Seanan is doing with Jonathan's character arc here. You can see how he ended up making the decisions that he is, and also you can see how they're still all the wrong ones for Alice. Being a good man and a good husband doesn't mean he's necessarily a good father....
