Margaret Ronald's Wild Hunt continues the adventures of Evie Scelan begun in Spiral Hunt. Having freed Boston from the control of the Fiana, a cabal controlling magic use, the power vacuum left creates a new set of problems. Others expect Evie to fill it, but she doesn't want the responsibility. Called upon by a Chinese merchant, Yuen, whose services she has used in the past, she is to witness his death and to verify the extinction of his father's spirit imprisoned in a sealed jar. She has no inkling of where this simple service will lead her. From official release/information:
From back of book: 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....
