The Great Hunt

The Great Hunt

Wendy Higgins
Thursday, May 25, 2017

When a dangerous beast begins to terrorize the kingdom, fear panics the citizens. But soon a proclamation is sent out: kill the creature and win the ultimate prize: the daughter of the king’s hand in marriage. Princess Aerity understands her duty to the kingdom, but she can not bear to marry a complete stranger, until a mysterious young hunter catches her eye. She can’t deny her attraction to him, or his strange resentment against her. As they both continue to surprise each other, Paxton’s perilous secrets he has so meticulously buried begin to surface.

Fast paced with beautiful writing and filled with romance, fantasy, action, and magic. This was such an enjoyable read!

I should probably include a disclaimer where I let you know I have never read the Grimm Brothers’ story “The Singing Bone,” so I had no prior experience with the tale that inspired the author to write The Great Hunt. This may have made the story feel a bit more fresh than it may have for someone who really knows the original story.

If you are a fan of fantasy or fairytale retellings, I highly recommend you read this. You won’t regret it!
