Summary: Some people have the Sight. Genevieve Scelan has the Scent.
They call her "Hound", and with her unique supernatural sense Evie can track nearly anything - lost keys, vanished family heirlooms... even missing people. And though she knows to stay out of the magical undercurrent that runs beneath Boston's historic streets, a midnight phone call from a long-vanished lover will destroy the careful boundaries she has drawn. Now, to pay a years-old debt, Evie must venture into the shadowy world that lies between myth and reality, where she will find betrayal, conspiracies, and revelations that will shatter ll she believes about herself and the city she claims as home.
Review: It's funny - if I had to describe the atmosphere of Spiral Hunt I'd say it reminded me more of Neil Gaiman's American Gods than anything else, but whereas I was bored to tears by AG, I loved SH. The plot was fascinating although at times a tad hard to follow, as I'm not too well versed in mythology. Unfortunately apart from Evie, the characters weren't as fleshed out as I would have liked, but as it's the first book in a series, one can always hope that'll come in the sequels.
