Fifty-six years ago, Thomas Price was taken by the crossroads to pay a debt that allowed his love, Alice, to live. Since that day, Alice Price-Healy has been searching for him, sacrificing nearly everything else she had, including her relationships with her children and grandchildren. While underneath it all Alice knows there is the chance Thomas is alive, now, with the crossroads destroyed, she will give everything she has left to bring him home. Drawing on all of her resources and the allies she has met along the way, Alice is ready to crash through every dimension to find where Thomas was hidden. Except some of her allies carry secrets, and there is the open question of whether Thomas would even remember her anymore after a half century.
VERDICT McGuire’s characters are equal parts sass and sarcasm, set in an ever-expanding interdimensional world where Alice is on a journey highlighted by emotional chaos and roller-coaster pacing. Fans will be delighted by this “InCryptid” installation.
