    I Also Recommend:

    A mix of Celtic myth and magic with a mystery.

    This book starts six weeks after Spiral Hunt ended. This book starts off with a few different things going on.

    First, Evie is summoned to Yuen's side was he passes on. But her job here is to verify, by scent, the ghost of his father is gone when Yuen passes too.

    Then you start to see Evie seems to have a new found respect from... or at least response from the undercurrent now after taking out the top man of the organization named Fiana, of Magicians and ran the undercurrent (at the end of Spiral Hunt). Those of the undercurrent seem to be sizing her up, for one reason or another... Also, her world of normalcy seems to be colliding with the undercurrent work she does, which bothers Evie as she doesn't want to put her friends in harm.

    Finally, Evie is visited by a potential client, an older woman who recently inherited chests of her Great-Great Grandmothers and believes they hold stolen items she would like to return to the rightful family.

    The main thing I would like to say I enjoy about these books so far is the way Margaret Ronald starts off with a few different happenings and how they come together in the end. All the ties get connected and the lose ends tied up. And the mythology used in doing so.

    Scent is Evie's ability to find anything, the descriptions used for scent are great. With Evie being part Hound and the way scent identifies everything to here I could really tell what she was smelling by the descriptions in words.

    To me Evie seems to have grown more in this book. Not only does Evie seem to be accepting the Hound in her which is becoming stronger and helping those who need helping, but she seems to be starting to figure out what she is to do to help. Boston is changing or at least the undercurrent of Boston is. She still doesn't want to be involved in the undercurrent world, and the struggle to keep her normal life and the magic life separate is a big one for her. But she seemed to accept that the undercurrent is there and she is not going to be able to stay out of in completely. Although, Evie is a strong enough character in the end of this book that she decides the friend that don't want to know of this world or be around it, that she will protect them anyway she can - verbally not talk of it or physically fight to protect them.

    In the end, I loved what happened with Evie and Nate. On all angles.

    Great sequel!

    This book picks up shortly after the ending of Spiral Hunt, the first book in the series. Evie is still trying to keep her head above water, only now she has to deal with unwanted outsiders coming to town, and others expecting her to step in to fill the power vacuum she helped create. While no one will admit to wanting the Fiana back in power, at least with them, everyone knew where they stood. Now there's a little too much uncertainty in town, and Evie is once again dealing with unwanted attention. Poor Evie...

    The story starts off with an unusual job for one of the few people Evie trusts. Yuen had helped Evie get her start as a Finder many years ago. As one of Evie's strengths is her loyalty, when he calls, Evie answers. Now Yuen is dying and he has one last job for Evie that seems pretty straightforward, but Evie soon learns that nothing is straightforward when dealing with the undercurrent. There are ghosts, rumors of a wild hunt, shapeshifters, possible possession, a historical mystery, and a whole host of other issues for Evie to wade through, all while trying to keep her day job. Never a dull moment for Evie Scelan!

    Am really enjoying this series, as Evie is learning more about her powers and is actually growing as a character. Thought the story was interesting, the action was well paced, and the series is noticeably evolving. Gave this a 4/5 rating, and am looking forward to seeing where Ronald goes next and how Evie will deal with whatever is thrown her way!
