Editorial Reviews

Review

“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.” (Strange Horizons)

From the Back Cover

Genevieve Scelan thought she was done with magic.

She was wrong.

Sure, six weeks earlier Evie—bike messenger, supernatural tracker, and avid Red Sox fan—had been instrumental in bringing down the Fiana, the organization of magicians that had ruled Boston's undercurrent for hundreds of years. But now they were gone, Boston could breathe easy again, the Sox had a chance at the pennant, and Evie was ready to relax.

Except it turns out that when you take down the guy on top, everyone assumes you're going to fill his spot, and now Evie finds herself at the center of a whole lot of unwelcome magical attention. On top of that, a new client needs her to call up a family ghost and ask about a stolen inheritance; Evie's friend Nate has a supernatural problem of his own; and a legendary pack of hounds has been terrorizing Boston's undercurrent. And try as Evie might to deny the legacy that runs through her blood, when the Hunt is called, the Hound must run . . .

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I disliked the prior book _Spiral Hunt_, but for some reason I rather liked this one. It seemed more subtle. Less Karen Chance and Laurel K. Hamilton, more Tim Powers and Charles De Lint.

This series is urban fantasy set in a world where magic is hidden in the corners and edges, unkown to most. The author creates a rich setting, that exudes an air of the supernatural boiling in the background everywhere. It also gives us lots of details of Boston life that are fun for people who've lived in the area. (Although it amused me that they described a character as horribly poor and had him living in Allston. Either the author has a diferent idea of what constitutes "dirt poor" then I do, or doesn't know what apartments in Allston are going for right now.)

The main character is descended from the hunting dog of some supernatural creatures, and possesses a supernaturally enhanced sense of smell, tracking ability, and running ability. The plot revolved around the dead, not in the standard vampire sense, but in the forms of ghosts and the past. The way this was handled was evocative and atmospheric. Having recently read lots of books that hit me over the head with an overwrought romance subplot, and borderline erotica, I found this book somewhat refreshing. The love interest was actually a nice guy, there were no weird dominance games and it wasn't a "taming of the shrew" remake. Lots of urban fantasy books have filled their pages with erotica, but I found the one erotic scene in this book much more intriguing then anything in the Laurell K. Hamilton books.

One drawback of the book is it is the sort of book that takes the viewpoint that magic is never actually useful. The main character is one of those heroines who is always poor, and never finds a way to really cash in on her magical abilities. The books teeters on the edge of excessive protagonist self-pity, but never actually goes there.

Genevieve "Evie" Scelan has a power, she uses her olfactory senses the same way that other's use their second sight, hence her nickname "The Hound". This "second scent" gives her so much power and influence that she has to work two jobs to pay the rent. The first is as a bicycle messenger, and second as a finder of lost objects.

About six weeks previous to this novel, in Spiral Hunt (Evie Scelan), Evie had, with help, destroyed the major power base of Boston's magical underground, here called the "undercurrent", and Evie's still trying to adjust to the fact that she is now a legend in her own time. She also has to adjust to the fact that she now has "juice", and that the people in the undercurrent seem to have two attitudes about her. On one hand they either respect, or fear, or both, her and who she's become, while on the other hand there seems to be a growing faction that wants to challenge her for her power and new-found, and unwanted place in the undercurrent. Nice idea, but it's mentioned, then glossed over, then forgotten as Ronald dumps it for something else. It seems that Evie's friend Nate is having problems; he's having restless nights, and seems to be on the verge on changing into something at nighttime. One guess as into what. What THAT is will come as no surprise to anybody who has ever read a horror or supernatural novel before. These nightmare nightimes of Nate's seem to have something to do with a recent Boston immigrant, the greasy, oily, and shady Karl Janssen. Janssen it seems wants to be Evie's go-between, (Go-between what you might ask?

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Know for her incredible olfactory sense that enables her to find missing persons and things, Evie "Hound" Scelan helped her former lover Frank McDermott escape from under the dictatorial control of the Fiana a cabal who controlled magic use in Boston (see Spiral Hunt). However Evie who is still upset with what the Fiana did to prevent the Sox from winning a World Series was so successful she left the city with no one in charge of magical practitioners although most users expected Evie would take over.

Chinese-American Yuen asks Evie for the favor of witnessing his death and to insure his father's spirit residing in a jar that he gives her is gone when he is gone; she owes him so she pays him back by being there for him. He dies a few minutes later; Evie checks the jar, which she tells his daughter Elizabeth is empty. However, Elizabeth fails to heed her father's directions, a major haunting mistake. Meanwhile Abigail Huston asks Evie to find out what her great-great-grandmother stole and who owns this item. Evie agrees to take her on as a client; not understanding what she has accepted as soon the trail leads to her own "messenger"-ancestor and the undercurrent Hounds.

Readers will enjoy the latest adventures of Evie who most of the Red Sox Nation expects her to take over from the cabal she toppled as successful coups always do. However, all she wants is to ride her bike, decide on how she feels about Nate Hunter who has his own paranormal problems, and take on clients needing her wonderful nose. Traders will enjoy her escapades in the urban fantasy noir landscape as Evie is a unique protagonist unlike most people who communicate through sight or hearing, her prime sense is smell.
