A solid sophomore effort, this book pulls readers back into Evie Scelan's Boston, a city that is as much a character in the series as Evie or Nate. Evie, with her ability to track things by scent with frightening accuracy due to a mystical connection with an Irish legend, continues to be interesting and sympathetic. The plot is a bit loose, and in the end the threads of the story aren't as neatly woven as they could be, but this is still a corker of a tale that readers will enjoy.
Six weeks after bringing down the Fiana, the rulers of Boston's undercurrent for hundreds of years, Evie thinks she'll finally have a chance
to take things easy. Unfortunately for her, she's at the center of everyone's attention, since the assumption is that the person who took out the old boss
is now the new boss.
Additionally, Evie has a couple of clients who seem to be mysteriously linked, her friend Nate has a supernatural issue of his own, and she's compelled to run with the Wild Hunt that's been summoned to the city. (EOS, Jan., 320 pp., $7.99)
