Priceless, book one: "My name is Rylee, and I am a Tracker." When children go missing and the Humans have no leads, I'm the one they call. I am their last hope in bringing home the lost ones. I salvage what they cannot. I'm on the FBI's wanted list. I have a werewolf for a pet, a Witch of a best friend, and no need for anyone else in my life. But when a salvage starts to spin out of control, help comes from a most unexpected direction.

Shannon Mayer has crafted an interesting paranormal fantasy series, with a kick ass female lead. There were plenty of reviews that found the narrator to be lacking skills. I discovered Emma Galvin was able to give an above average performance as she brought the story to life. By the end of book 3, I truly believed she was the voice of Rylee Adamson.
