Everything has a cost. And every act of magic exacts a price from its user--maybe a two-day migraine, or losing the memory of your first kiss. But some people want to use magic without paying, and they offload the cost onto an innocent. When that happens, it falls to a Hound to identify the spell's caster--and Allison Beckstrom's the best there is.

Daughter of a prominent Portland businessman, Allie would rather moonlight as a Hound than accept the family fortune--and the many strings that come with it. But when she discovers a little boy dying from a magical offload that has her father's signature all over it, Allie is thrown back into the high-stakes world of corporate espionage and black magic.

Now, Allie's out for the truth--and the forces she finds herself calling on will overturn everything she knows, change her in ways she could never imagine...and make her capable of things that powerful people will do anything to control.

WOW! This book was amazing! I loved every minute of it. It fit perfectly into the category I've mentally setup for myself, which involves urban fantasy books that make me feel relaxed and cozy whenever I sit down to read them. It's an amazing thing for a writer to be able to suck in a reader so much they feel this way. And, I love it when that happens!

OMG! Devon Monk did a fantastic job with this book. I was sucked in from the very beginning. Actually, since I read the first chapter in a sampler she sent me. Allie is just one of those characters that I know I'm going to love reading about for a long time to come. And Zay. Yikes! I need to know more about him. More about this wonderful world of magic she's created. More, more, more!

I can't wait for the next book.The chemistry between Allie and Zay was awesome. And Devon's writing was terrific. I love her voice and style. Yep, this book's a winner!
