In New York Times bestselling author Mercedes Lackey's action-packed sequel to Hunter, a storm is headed to Apex City, and unless Joy and the Hunters put up the fight of their lives, it might just sweep them all away.

Joy knows she'll be facing more dangerous Othersiders than ever before as a new member of the Elite Hunter unit, but if anyone is up to the challenge it's her. Then the rules change. The leaders of Apex must come together to protect the city, but tensions have never been higher between the Hunters and the powerful PsiCorps, with each group competing to be the primary protector of the city. 

Chaos erupts when Ace, the murderous Hunter who tried to kill Joy at her Elite trials, escapes from the Army's captivity and defects to the Othersiders. Joy has no idea what Ace might be capable of with the help of the cunning Folk, but she may be about to find out as Othersider forces are gaining strength and momentum just beyond the barriers. 

  • Praise for Elite:
    "Another fascinating chapter in Joy's saga that successfully marries fantasy and science fiction for teen readers."
  • "Avoiding a second-volume sag with plenty of charisma, this outing proves to be a satisfying read that takes the baton neatly from the first and leaves readers ready for more."
    Kirkus Reviews
  • Praise for Hunter:
    *"Joyeaux's narration is spellbinding, the prose easily balancing the technology of the future with the tradition of the past. Captivating, dynamic, well-paced, and thrilling."
    Kirkus Reviews
  • "Fans of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games series who like a little more magic and fantasy with their dystopia will appreciate this new series."
  • "Lackey successfully mixes dystopia and fantasy in this series opener . . . the novel is exciting, entirely entertaining, and sure to please her fans."
