Publisher's Summary

PRG Reviewer's Choice Award finalist for Best Urban Fantasy series.
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 award-winning, best-selling Ivy Granger urban fantasy series by E.J. Stevens. The world of Ivy Granger, including the Ivy Granger Psychic Detective series and Hunters' Guild series, is filled with action, mystery, magic, dark humor, quirky characters, bloodsucking vampires, flirtatious demons, sarcastic gargoyles, sexy shifters, temperamental witches, psychotic faeries, and snarky, kick-butt heroines.
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.

Fast paced action brings friends to Ivy's side!

Ivy escaped from the land of Faerie with her fiancé, Ceffyl, and a testy friend, king of the Cat Sidhe, Sir Torn. But as they return, they discover that an evil force followed them into Ivy’s home town, Harborsmouth. The Huntsman and his powerful Barguest are bringing the Wild Hunt to Ivy and her community. The Huntsman will blow his horn at sundown to loose the dark hounds on the city. Any bite from the hounds turns the victim into a new black hound.

Ivy would normally call on her witch friend, Kaye, to help prepare a defense but Kaye has gone off the deep end on a power trip and may be as dangerous as the Huntsman. Ivy has to deal with Kaye before she can gather allies to face the Wild Hunt.

I enjoyed the action and the usual characters, plus extra creatures, brought in to help in each of the crisis that Ivy faces. I was a little distracted by some repetition of Ivy sort of whining. Still, she is growing and those around her recognize her special ability to bring adversaries together to face a common foe. She’s done it before and hopes to do it again to protect the city from the Wild Hunt. She tries to protect those she loves but can she save all her friends, including Ceff when he gets caught by the hounds? There are threads from prior books, and a few surprises, that get tied in nicely here. I liked how the friends come together in this good adventure.

Audio Notes: Melanie A. Mason and Anthony A. Bowlin do a nice job with the character voices. Their back and forth combination works well to make this a fun and entertaining listen.

I received this audiobook from the author as part of release tour. My rating 4.25.

.Hound's Bite: Ivy Granger, Psychic Detective

What did you like most about Hound's Bite?
Eeeek! I feel like I have been waiting forever for this book to come out .I have been a HUGE E.J Stevens fan since the first book Shadow sight came to Audible UK in 2013!After the revelation in the previous book,Birthright,that Ivy ,our Ivy was Queen Mab's daughter. The queen of air and darkness' daughter !Lets just say I have been eagerly waiting for this book to be released.So what did I like most?the continuation of this amazing fae filled,realm jumping Myth to reality series.It was amazing!Its hard in reviews not to let any spoilers slip so that and hold on to your seats, grab some tissues and you may need a baby monitor at some time ;) Outstanding Urban fantasy.
What other book might you compare Hound's Bite to, and why?
Hmm if i were to compare this series to anything it would be October Daye series by Seanan McGuire .
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Absolutely and I did. Infact I went back and listened to all of the books again to get the full experience.Writing like this is worth it,you see and pick up things that the writer has planted in the ground work from the beginning and throughout the books that come to a head and make a glorious , magical sense.
Any additional comments?
Melanie A. Mason , Anthony A. Bowlin were very good and held me spellbound.This book was on my “ Pounce on it as soon as it comes out list” however I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review,as always , is my honest opinion.

It's not what you would expect.

Any additional comments?

I have to admit that I have not read or listened to the previous books in this series. However, as the story progressed the author explained somethings. I didn't feel that I was missing anything from not reading the others in the series.
I liked the main character Ivy, I thought she was mature and lead her team like a true leader. I have to say my favorite character has to be Torn. I found him to be really interesting. I didn't get much from Ceff, Ivy's boyfriend. I didn't see any emotional connection between him and ivy. I am surprised that they are in love because I did not feel it. I thought he would have been more involved but we don't get to see him a lot and sometimes I forget he is even there. It is a shame I would have loved to have gotten to know him as I got to know the other characters.

There are two narrators in this audio book. They worked really well together and gave the characters a more 3D effect. I also liked the sound effects, which I wasn't expecting and it gave the book something more.
