Lochlanach has traded the great beast for something far more terrible, a Lashed enemy veiled in beauty, deception, and a vengeance passed down through generations: Rozaria Rocato. And she’s offering the hunter Paxton Seabolt power and acceptance he could never receive in his homeland. Pax must decide how far he’s willing to go under her tutelage, knowing she is the opponent of Princess Aerity Lochson.
In a land where traditionalists dread change, the Lochlan throne must contend with mysterious foes and traitors, while attempting to keep revolt at bay. As dire circumstances strike the royal family, matters of the castle are left in Aerity’s hands. It’s time to put aside her fears and grasp the reign, taking actions that have the potential to save or destroy her people.
One hunt has ended, but the pursuit for love and justice continue. In this sequel to The Great Hunt from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, political intrigue and romance intensify in another thrilling fantasy. Princess Aerity embraces a quest for identity and passion before making the ultimate sacrifice for her kingdom.
I was happy with this book, and thankfully I liked it a little better than the first book.
What kept this book from being a 5 star read was just all the love that drowned out most of the book for me. It wasn’t the worst thing in the world but it did distract me from the story, and for that I could only give this book 4 stars.
Aerity was sadly just not my favorite character. Her kingdom needed her, and she put herself first. So I had some qualms with that as well.
The ending was also predictable, but everything was written so well. And it was for the great writing that I settled on 4 stars.
