This pulled too much from Harry Potter - orphaned and sent to live at a magical school...and from there it was just boring. Spirit is mopy, understandably since her family died, but that's all really. And the plot is thin, so so thin. Anyone who has ever heard of the Wild Hunt will be annoyed at how long it takes to come up with the answer and it was too convenient that the hunt happens to be composed of ghost riders, fae SUVs, and a demon hunter, just so that each of the three pairs has some part in its destruction. And other than that there was not too much to keep a reader engaged. The characters were barely developed and stayed 2-dimensional. Burke was more interesting than most, but cast in a very simple light. Never got why Muirrin had all the weird cat nicknames and don't care. Also, every other line someone was smiling, grinning, smiling, tensely smiling...as a writer this happens, but the editor should have taken more out - make the dialogue do its own work. And there was something on page 89 I think that could have been taken very dirty and I don't think it was meant to.
