Publisher's Summary

For years now, Scarlett Bernard has counted on two things: her ability to nullify magic, and Shadow, the bargest who guards Scarlett with her life. But after a sudden revelation turns Scarlett's world upside down, she panics and leaves town without warning, leaving Shadow with her partner, Jesse. In the chaos that follows, the bargest is stolen - and Jesse nearly dies from a brutal psychic assault. 

It seems that an old enemy has returned for revenge...and the attack on Shadow was only the beginning. As Scarlett races home to find the bargest and rescue her friends, she is dragged deeper into a terrifying legend that has somehow found its way to present-day Los Angeles. 

Now she will have to recruit every possible ally for a battle that will test her null ability to the limit. Scarlett has been in over her head before, but now she risks losing everything...and she's never had more to lose.

I must find the next one to read

Narration perfect, storyline intense, loving, unique, leaving you wanting more. The best trilogy I have read in the series so far.

A cliffhanger.....fantastic!

This series is one of the best written of any genre I’ve ever read. It has it all, danger, action, adventure, a little romance without all the gory details (I’m a great believer in ‘less is more’) and the supernatural.

I’m anxious now for the next book in this universe to find out what happens next.

If you like a good riveting well written and well narrated book then this is for you. A good strong storyline with characters you can embrace.

Harry Potter for Adults!

What made the experience of listening to Shadow Hunt the most enjoyable?

Melissa F. Olsen's characters are full of, well, character and very real. Or as real as characters set in a make believe world can be.

Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Amy McFadden is always super!active. I've listened to both Scarlet Bernard series and one or two others read by Amy.

Any additional comments?

To understand the relationship of the characters, I suggest reading the series in order. Though it doesn't matter if you read the Boundary series or the Scarlett Bernard series first. Melissa F. Olsen's books are fun, imaginative, and well written. Some of my favorite urban fantasy.

Cliffhangers, why does it have to be cliffhangers

apart from the ending which is open ended enough to give many more books, but a perfect place to end the series as well....

yeah apart from that I loved the book, it wasn't a certain part that got me but the sum of it's parts fitting together in a better whole...
Melissa and Amy really hit it out of the park with this one
great story and great narration both

Outstanding

I loved listening to this story. The performance was very good and the story wrapped up a lot of loose ends. It was exciting and action filled but still had good character growth.

Almost good

A frequent problem with readers: dialogue readings may be good, but in the expositive sections, the incessant and unrelenting up-lilt at end of sentences is excruciating to listen to. I am so happy to return to reading the text.

I've listened to this a few times now and just seems to get better every time. The story is great and detailed but not so much that you start to ignore all of the information. Can't wait for the next Scarlett book!

Hooked me from the beginning.

Characters were amazing. Vampires, werewolves, and the humans worked together to stop the fairy hunt. This third installment filled in all the why's needed to complete this good story. Listened through Audible. Worth reading/listening too.

Awesome

I am so glad I bought 5 and 6 together the cliff hanger at the end of 5 wow! Those last two words (mind blown) can’t say I did not wonder if it could happen during that scene in Las Vegas!

We are back in LA but we do pop to Boulder Colorado and we meet up with Lex, she is from another series that this writer writes set in the same world, but she is not a null. She has been in this series before normally on the phone. Sasha also comes back in this book as well. Scarlett and Molly meet maven (normally seen in Lex’s books) their reactions are amazing! Loved it!
There are a lot of moments in this book, where you can’t stop listening to as you need to know what’s going to happen. This became a problem for me when I was only going to listen to one chapter before bed and I couldn’t stop listening. I really enjoyed this story and am hoping to hear more soon.

If you could sum up Shadow Hunt in three words, what would they be?

Great story arc

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well Scarlett obviously but I’m also loving Shadow

What about Amy McFadden’s performance did you like?

Used to her doing these books. She always delivers with good timing distinct voices for the major characters and says the words with feeling

Any additional comments?

It’s a help if you have read or listened to the previous books as it pulls together characters from the original Scarlett Barnard series and also the Boundary Magic series. This is probably the best of the lot though with a great story with really good development of the characters. The Epilogue certainly sets up another book which I can’t wait for
