Summary: Some people have the Sight. Genevieve Scelan has the Scent.
They call her “Hound,” and with her unique supernatural sense Evie can track nearly anything—lost keys, vanished family heirlooms . . . even missing people. And though she knows to stay out of the magical undercurrent that runs beneath Boston’s historic streets, a midnight phone call from a long-vanished lover will destroy the careful boundaries she has drawn. Now, to pay a years-old debt, Evie must venture into the shadowy world that lies between myth and reality, where she will find betrayal, conspiracies, and revelations that will shatter all she believes about herself and the city she claims as home.
When the Hunt is on, the Hound must run . . .
I honestly don’t have a lot to say about this book. It was just an okay read. I had no idea what was happening in the beginning and I don’t know if that was my fault or the authors. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood and was having trouble understanding or maybe the author didn’t explain things well enough. I also had trouble keeping track of the characters. There aren’t even that many but I didn’t care about any of them so I had to stop reading every once and awhile and try to remember who they were talking about.
Other than those problems, I enjoyed the book enough to read it in a day. Although, I don’t know if that would have happened if I wasn’t reading this during a read-a-thon. If it wasn’t for the read-a-thon it probably would have taken me a few days to get through it. It wasn’t that great. I didn’t like it, but I didn’t hate it either. I will be picking up the next book, Wild Hunt, soon. Hopefully it’s better.
