Publisher's Summary

Hunting monsters was supposed to be the hard part. When Joy came to Apex City, all she cared about was protecting the Cits from the dangers lurking outside protective barriers. She understood the need for the secrecy surrounding her hunts - no need to cause a panic by announcing just how real of a threat the Othersiders pose.

But as she quickly discovered, the conspiracies of the city run much deeper. And a dangerous new covert mission leaves Joy with a target on her back once more. Under the orders of her uncle, the city's prefect, Joy begins patrolling the abandoned tunnels and storm sewers under Apex Center. With her large pack of magical hounds, she can fight the monsters breaking through the barriers with the strength of three hunters. Then she starts finding bodies. Psimons are turning up dead in the bowels of the city, with no apparent injury. Reporting the incidents makes Joy the uncomfortable object of PsiCorps' scrutiny, and the organization appears more interested in keeping her quiet than investigating. Joy's situation grows more precarious, and her relationship with her Psimon boyfriend, Josh, begins to fray. Long-held tensions between PsiCorps and the Hunters seem to be reaching a breaking point. While infighting threatens the stability of Apex City, Othersider forces are gaining strength and momentum outside the borders. Joy desperately seeks answers to figure out who her real enemies are before she and everyone she cares about are locked into an all-out war.

    "Great 2nd book in the series"

    Not quite as good as the first book (Hunter) but pretty close.

    One of the things I've appreciated about both books are that they don't end on a HUGE cliffhanger. You know there's another book to come because there are unanswered questions, but each book has a satisfying ending.

    All the characters from the first book are back (unless they died in book 1) and not only do we learn more about them but also more about everyone's abilities (the hunters, the simons, the hounds).

    So once again, well-paced, well-written, well-developed characters, interesting plot. Although I will say there was more action in this one, and I could have use a bit less action.

    "Fantastic"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Joy's story is a great one and Amy Landon does a fantastic job. I'll be listening to this one again and again.

    "Hunter first the Elite"

    I am a Lackey fan. The second volume in the Hunter series does not disappoint.

    Conclusion ties up many story elements but points the way to the continuation.

    "Good story - Narrator Needs Work"

    I enjoy this series. The monsters and the hounds are fun and creative. I just wish that the narrator could read with feeling and emotion. This series is fun and has its comic side, but you'd never know that from the reader's voice. Her delivery is flat and somewhat mechanical although her voice has a bit more life to it in this book than the previous one in this series. Come on, Ms. Landon - have some fun with this. Check out James Marsden and the Dresden series if you need a hint.
