Vegas was fun, if a little more exciting than originally planned; more importantly, Dominic De Luca is officially gone, leaving Michael Delgado in his place. It's only a name, but a name can change the world in the right hands. A name can change everything.

Everything except for the heart of the one who wears it. No matter what he's called, Dominic loves Verity,

Recommends it for: serious InCryptid fans
Meh. Felt like a rehash of the emotional set-up ofPocket Apocalypse. In short, it is Dominic meeting Verity's parents at the family compound. Basically the same silly, over-cautious and paranoid behaviors, and similarly unable to be saved by the Aeslin mice.

I was really hoping to see Antimony's response to meeting Dominic for the first time, but Kevin and Evelyn will have to do. :)

We've been following Verity and Dominic's journey across the country to her hometown for a while now and I have to admit I was a bit disappointed that we never got to see her parent's reaction when she brings home an ex-covenant member and introduces him as not just her boyfriend but her husband so I was really glad when I found out that Seanan McGuire had added this extra short story to her website.

My Last Name is the perfect ending to this little series of short stories and it's another turning p/>My

Another charming Incryptid short story - in this case, a very small one.

One small quibble:

I liked getting to see Verity's parents meet Dominic when they finally arrived in Oregon. Dominic is awesome. The lengths this family goes to in order to ensure their anonymity and security sometimes amazes me. It also makes me a little sad that they have to go through all of this.

A Verity and Dominic Incryptid short; Verity and Dominic's roadtrip comes to an end and they finally arrive at the Price home. The Aeslin mice make an appearance, which is always catnip to me. As someone who is quite a bit older than Verity, I kind of want to shake her for the way she handled--or didn't handle--telling her parents about Dominic, and this fills in the missing bit as to how all the relationships stand in Chaos Choreography, which is definitely a piece I wanted...but the ending fee ...more

My Last Name and most of the other short stories from the InCryptid series can be found for free on the authors website.

This (too) short story bridges the gap between Waking Up in Vegas and the beginning of Chaos Choreography, where Verity and Dominic return to the Oregon compound and Verity hasn't told anyone yet of her recent marriage.

A nice short, although I would have loved it to be a bit longer, because I think this is the last of Verity we'll see for some time.

Another cute Incryptid short, made all the more charming thanks to Aeslin mice.

Dominic Price sounds pretty good to me.

Oh...the Prices, such a crazy family! Fun to see how both of Verity's parents reacted to meeting Dominic for the first time.

Glad that Dominic was able to meet Verity's parents. It's good that they accepted him. Hope they will be able to stop the Covenant of St. George soon.

Can't wait to read more stories featuring Verity and Dominic!!!!!

I was thoroughly engrossed by this story, I really wanted to read it, given that it's Dominic meeting the Price parents! So awesome!

Verity and Dominic finally make their way to the Price family home.

As newlyweds.

Yeah, that goes over about as well as you'd think.

BUT. Whatever the problem was that Verity was going to come back to? Never definitively addressed.

Oh, it could've been that he felt like she didn't need him as he hazily confessed while high on swamp bromeliad pollen, or it could've been that he's never had a family, while you can't swing a cat without hitting one of Verity's extended relations, but whReads

Verity finally makes it home to her family-just in time to surprise them with what she and Dominic have been up to. They're happy to see her and the mice, but are they happy she actually brought home a Covenant boy?

i really missed Verity and Dominic but i couldn't have expected a better first meeting with her familly, it may be short yes but it was wonderfully written and very funny a pure pleasure for those following the series
Boy, Verity's folks are weird. I feel like I want to know more about how they got that way.

A nice short with Verity and a bit of her family.

2.5 stars because it just was a little anticlimactic and too brief.

A nice and satisfactory end to their road trip :)

Short, cute and very well written, just as I expect.

Verity and Dominic's road trip comes to an end at the Price family compound, and somehow there is no blood! A nice little filler story that bridges a gap in the narrative left between the most recent book and previous short story. And possibly the last we'll see of Verity and Dominic for a while! Woe! Well, bring on Antigony :D

Fun short. Love the mice.
Follow-on to Waking up in Vegas. More Very and Dom.

Sweet. And anything with Aeslin mice always gets a minimum four stars.
