Hound's Bite is a solid urban fantasy that swiftly moves from one action sequence to the next. Although it relies on readers' familiarity with the characters from previous novels, Hound's Bite is still easily accessible to newcomers. The central characters are boldly drawn - Ivy Granger the daughter of Mab and Will'oWisp newly come into her immense powers, Ceff the king of the Water fae and Torn the King of Cats. Their personalities are exactly what urban fantasy readers have come to expect.
Hound's Bite pits Ivy and her allies against both the Wild Hunt and a former ally gone mad with power. No worries. No matter how dire the situation appears, readers know Ivy will find a way to overcome the odds demonstrating both her power and leadership abilities. In the end, it is always Ivy who comes up with the answers while her pals cheer her on.
Hound's Bite is the paranormal fiction equivalent of an action movie. You are guaranteed lots of fun, dastardly bad guys, and plenty of explosions.
I received a copy of Hound's Bite from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Ivy Granger thought she left the worst of Mab's creations behind when she escaped Faerie.
She thought wrong.
In a cruel twist of fate, Ivy has unleashed a powerful horde of Unseelie beasts upon her city, turning her homecoming into a potential slaughter of innocents. Now Ivy must gather her allies to fight a reputedly unstoppable force—The Wild Hunt.
Will the training Ivy received in her father's court be enough to save her city, or will Harborsmouth be forced to kneel before the Lord of the Hunt? She is willing to risk her own life, but some sacrifices come at a cost worse than death. When an ally is bitten by one of The Wild Hunt's hounds, Ivy must face the possibility that winning this battle may mean killing the one person she has come to love most.
Hound's Bite is the fifth full-length novel in the bestselling Ivy Granger urban fantasy series by E.J. Stevens. The Ivy Granger series has won numerous awards, including the BTS Red Carpet Award for Best Novel, the PRG Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Paranormal Fantasy Novel, Best Urban Fantasy Novel, and finalist for Best Urban Fantasy Series.
