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.

As if Ivy Granger doesn’t have enough problems with her mom being Queen Mab, her father is Will of the Wisp, her fiancé is The king of Kelpies, her adopted son is full on demon and she’s a full blown fey; but now one of her trusted friends has gone evil rogue and The Wild Hunt is on the prowl. Can she save her friends and the town she loves? Who amongst her friends will suffer if she loses?
EJ Stevens crafts an action-packed tale which challenges each character to do what is right instead of what is expected. I loved how the various forms of fey/supernaturals were involved demonstrating that differences can be put aside for the good of all.
Character development was solid as was the plot. There were a couple of times where things seemed to take a leap and she had more aces up her sleeve than a casino has chips. That phrase was overused however the story itself was solid and engaging.
This was a bit of a theatrical presentation with sounds and music; often getting in the way of the story. Narrators Melanie Mason and Anthony Bowling did an amazing job of owning the book with their talented and crafted voices. They never stumbled over one another and their voices fit each character.
There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook. Although I felt the sound effects are more of a hindrance than a help.
