Verity and Dominic have left New York, and got married in Vegas while travelling with Verity’s stuff cross-country. Verity has given up on her alter ego Valerie Pryor and her career in ballroom dancing and is fully committed to cryptozoology with her new husband and the rest of her family. Then she gets a call from the producer of “Dance or Die”, the reality show that she came runner up in a few years ago and she’s asked to return for a “former contestants” edition. While she’s unsure of what to do, her family encourage her to go and make sure, once and for all, what career is the one she’s meant to devote herself to.
Posing as Valerie again, with Dominic hiding out in a motel a ways away, Verity reunites with old friends and gets serious about dance again. Then she discovers that the contestants who have been voted off the show are being killed and their bodies used in some sort of sinister, arcane ritual. Verity is going to need help, more than just Dominic is able to give her. Luckily, her grandma Alice is willing and able to lend a hand, and together they start investigating, only to discover that the danger is greater and more immediate than they feared.
