Wild Hunt

HarperEros, February 2010

In the wake of the Fiana’s fall, the undercurrent of Boston is a chaos of adepts jockeying for power. Evie, in the midst of to balancing her unwelcome notoriety and her new relationship with Nate, takes on a job to find the thieves responsible for a series of strange burglaries. Following the theft of a “harlequin horn” from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, one of the thieves asks Evie for protection — protection which Evie is ultimately unable to provide. To recover the horn, Evie must call up the dead from beneath the Quabbin Reservoir, hunt down the man she’s begun to love, and outrun the Gabriel Hounds themselves. But none of it may be any good, for all these events have played out once before, and a dead man is determined that they will turn out the same this time. And only the dead, she knows, can kill the dead.

 

“WILD HUNT continues to showcase [Ronald’s] talent for combining drama, chills, and hilarity into a compulsively readable caper . . . Crammed with plots, characters, and heady descriptions, [WILD HUNT] can make you a little dizzy at times, but treasures—even revelations—await those who don’t mind a bit of exploring.”
