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.

    "Good series, when's the next one come out?"

    It was definitely worth a couple credits for. Idk if there is going to be another book in this series but I really hope there is. I've seen other reviews how people are saying it's another teen book series and I say to those people, no it's not... I'm in my 40s and I really liked both books. So there, take that...

    Story
    "Boring."

    While book 1, Hunter, was interesting, book 2, Elite, provided no real advancement of the story. It just repeated incidents of Joy fighting outsiders over and over and over again. The monotony was painful.

    How many times can I read that she used a magic technique to destroy outsider x? How many times will she cuddle with her hound? How many times is she going to investigate the same place and run into the same situation? How many times is she going to wake up to an emergency, go get her gear, jump into air transport, and protect the wall?

    I believe this will be a trilogy, but there really is no need. The author could have told the story in two books, maybe even one.

    "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.

    Story
    "it was good. story seemed slow at points."

    only complaint was that it seemed ether slow or we jumped from battle to battle with little story or character development in the middle. book felt like it had a bit too much filler content. BUT the book was not terrible and was worth the read.

    Story
    "Confused"

    I am so confused. I can't put my finger on the problem

    Is this series aimed at teenagers?

    Some really good ideas but I feel either parts of the plot are needlessly over detailed or possibly it is narrated weirdly. Strange pauses... to highlight... things. A female Christopher Walker possibly?

    But the story has me hooked. I need to know more and the negatives haven't put me off continuing the series when book 3 is released.

    "Love the story."

    Can not wait for the next installment. Great narration with feeling and great story. First person narrative isn't my favorite point of view for a book, but this really gets you involved in the story.

    "Strong ideas but shallow execution."

    Characters are one dimensional, several glaring continuity issues with the fist book. Cleary tween targeted.
