Staff Reviews


If you like books with a dystopian/post apocalyptic futures, advanced technology, mythology, and reality TV, then this book might be for you. Set in a distant future that's part futuristic, part post apocalyptic, humanity is trying to recover from a rip in reality that has caused monsters from every mythology imaginable (known as otherworlders) to spill into the human world. Humanity's only hope of fighting these monsters off is a small group of "hunters", humans with a magical ability to work with hounds the only 'good' monsters to come from the otherworld.
This book was a little tough for me to get into at first, but by then end I had fallen in love with this world. Lackey has created a unique magic system, with enough leeway to expand on the way the characters interact with this magic, but with enough rules to ground the magic in this new reality. I'm all for mythology done in new and interesting ways, and I can't wait to see where this new series goes. — Amy Williams

Description


They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares.Monsters.Long ago, the barriers between our world and the Otherworld were ripped open, and it's taken centuries to bring back civilization in the wake. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous monsters fighting to break through. Others are not so lucky. To Joyeaux Charmand, who has been a Hunter in her tight-knit mountain community since she was a child, every Cit without magic deserves her protection from dangerous Othersiders. Then she is called to Apex City, where the best Hunters are kept to protect the most important people. Joy soon realizes that the city's powerful leaders care more about luring Cits into a false sense of security than protecting them. More and more monsters are getting through the barriers, and the close calls are becoming too frequent to ignore. Yet the Cits have no sense of how much danger they're in--to them, Joy and her corps of fellow Hunters are just action stars they watch on TV.When an act of sabotage against Joy takes an unbearable toll, Joy uncovers a terrifying conspiracy. There is something much worse than the usual monsters infiltrating Apex. And it may be too late to stop them.
