Publisher's Summary

Hunting monsters was supposed to be the hard part. When Joy came to Apex City, all she cared about was protecting the Cits from the dangers lurking outside protective barriers. She understood the need for the secrecy surrounding her hunts - no need to cause a panic by announcing just how real of a threat the Othersiders pose.
But as she quickly discovered, the conspiracies of the city run much deeper. And a dangerous new covert mission leaves Joy with a target on her back once more. Under the orders of her uncle, the city's prefect, Joy begins patrolling the abandoned tunnels and storm sewers under Apex Center. With her large pack of magical hounds, she can fight the monsters breaking through the barriers with the strength of three hunters. Then she starts finding bodies. Psimons are turning up dead in the bowels of the city, with no apparent injury. Reporting the incidents makes Joy the uncomfortable object of PsiCorps' scrutiny, and the organization appears more interested in keeping her quiet than investigating. Joy's situation grows more precarious, and her relationship with her Psimon boyfriend, Josh, begins to fray. Long-held tensions between PsiCorps and the Hunters seem to be reaching a breaking point. While infighting threatens the stability of Apex City, Othersider forces are gaining strength and momentum outside the borders. Joy desperately seeks answers to figure out who her real enemies are before she and everyone she cares about are locked into an all-out war.

This IS a YA novel - but it still a good listen

I find most Young Adult novels that use the main character's POV to be whinny and unreadable. This book has points where it approaches whinny teenager but they pass quickly. I listened to book 1&2 back to bak and while they were a good listen with a interesting plot, I won't be hunting the pre-orders list hunting for book 3.
There are better books, but these were good enough for the commute.

Great 2nd book in the series

Not quite as good as the first book (Hunter) but pretty close.

One of the things I've appreciated about both books are that they don't end on a HUGE cliffhanger. You know there's another book to come because there are unanswered questions, but each book has a satisfying ending.

All the characters from the first book are back (unless they died in book 1) and not only do we learn more about them but also more about everyone's abilities (the hunters, the simons, the hounds).

So once again, well-paced, well-written, well-developed characters, interesting plot. Although I will say there was more action in this one, and I could have use a bit less action.
