New Release: Hound's Bite Audiobook Urban Fantasy

Hound's Bite (Ivy Granger Psychic Detective #5) by E.J. Stevens.  Narrated by Melanie Mason and Anthony Bowling.

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.

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Mystery, Supernatural Suspense

 Ivy Granger has returned from the journey of a lifetime only to be faced with a battle that will test her skills and her new found magical abilities.  With her boyfriend Kef and best friend Jinx by her side, will Ivy win the fight over evil or will evil take its toll?

Ivy and the gang have come full circle now with fighting battles, winning in love, friendship and respect but they have also gained more to lose.  When Ivy returns after discovering who she really is, she now faces the challenge of controlling that power yet still keeping her loved ones safe.  When the hounds come howling, Ivy gathers the troops and prepares for an epic battle, and in the process shit goes wrong, very wrong.  Ivy is a born leader, she knows just how to call the shots when the chips are down like a true leader.  The story, the battle only strengthens the bonds and seals an emotional attachment for the reader.  How could you not love Sparky, the demon she has adopted, or Kef, the Kelpie King boyfriend who never judges her but just loves her and Sparky.  It has been my pure pleasure to read as Ivy comes into a wonderful and powerful leader as well as a strong, brave woman.  The ending left me with questions, but ones that show how fascinated I am with Ivy’s life and where it will go from here.

Narrators Review

Narrated by Melanie A. Mason and Anthony A. Bowlin.  Both Mason and Bowlin have done a wonderful job with their narration.  The sound quality was excellent, the tone was pleasant to my ears, and the emotion/acting was most entertaining!  I can honestly say that listening to this duo was a treat, and made the story come alive.  Thank you for a job well done.

 Not every Valentine is a saint . . .

Corruption. Greed. Illicit sex. Murder. Private investigator Valentine Shepherd thinks she's seen it all, and her strange ability to glimpse the future gives her an edge no one else in the world has. But when her fiancé is killed trying to exonerate his client, billionaire Max Carressa, Val makes it her personal mission to bring the people responsible to justice, no matter the cost. Convinced the two men are linked by more than attorney-client privilege, she enlists Max's help in her investigation and gets more than she bargained for.

 Private Investigator Valentine Shepherd has got skill, (ex-Army Sergeant) brains, and oh, she can see the future.  Her ability to see others’ emanate demise has haunted her since she hit puberty, and with the help of her best friend Stacy she has honed in on that gift.  When her fiance Robby is mowed down with a car right in front of her own eyes, she is on a mission for VENGEANCE!

Robby and Valentine were a team to be reckoned with, until that faithful day Robby lost his life while in route to meet an informant.  Robby was a lawyer representing a rich bachelor charged with murdering his own father, Lester Carressa.  Valentine’s first order of business on her new mission, find out what the fuck this guy Chet, (informant) knows.  That of course leads her to Max Carressa, Lester’s accused son.  She never actually met Max until after Robby’s death, and had no idea how earth shattering handsome and tempting to the senses he was.  The heat that radiated off of him when she stood close to him was unbearable for Valentine both emotionally and physically.  These two mis-matched pair team up to uncover the truth both for different reasons.  When the heat is turned on by the officials, there is no denying Valentine and Robby were brought together by fate.

Valentine’s character was unique, I have never read about a character having such an unusual way of tapping their ability like Valentine and if I told you how, I don’t think you would believe me!  LOL!  She chose to use her gift for good by becoming a P.I. after leaving the Army, which really suited her well.  With her best friend by her side in (personal and business), along with a lawyer boyfriend, they made a sweet Scooby gang.  Robby made his exit early on so his character didn’t leave me with much to get attached to, but I felt the pain through Valentine.  Max was full of surprises!  I was cautious with him at first but as soon as I got to know him, I knew he was a good guy.  The story is a paranormal thriller that lived up to that title all the way to the end.  I can’t tell you how shocked I was at various points in the book by an unexpected twist, or how I laughed my ass off when Georgie shit his pants, literally!  This story is straight up television material that I would definitely watch.  The one moment that brought me back to my reality was the Soundgarden reference.  I have always been a big fan of the band and Chris since the 1990‘s and Chris’ death is and forever will be felt deeply in my soul.  Next book on my tbr...Retribution,  Need the link to one click this bad girl, scroll baby, scroll.
