Spotlight on Ever the Hunter by Erin Summerill, Plus Excerpt & Giveaway!

Today we're spotlighting Erin Summerill's novel, Ever the HuntedRead on for more about Erin and her novel, plus an excerpt, and giveaway!

 

Meet Erin Summerill!

After completing a B.A. in English, Erin had aspirations to knock out the next great American novel. Her mom always taught her to dream big. Well writing proved tougher than she first thought. Tougher than chewing on a two-year-old gummi-worm that's been hiding under a car seat. Plans changed. She didn't write the next great American novel. No, she grabbed a Nikon and became a professional wedding photographer. During the day she posed brides and in the evenings she put scenes into action. Word by word. Manuscript by manuscript. Erin kept on writing.

The scenic detour of photography took her across the United States and even over to Australia and New Zealand, where she picked up world-building inspiration. After seven years, eight failed manuscripts, and a life-altering kidney donation experience, Erin finally had the vision to draft her debut young adult fantasy, EVER THE HUNTED.

 
 
Meet Ever the Hunted!
 

Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, the legendary bounty hunter for the King of Malam—that is, until her father is murdered. Now outcast and alone and having no rights to her father’s land or inheritance, she seeks refuge where she feels most safe: the Ever Woods. When Britta is caught poaching by the royal guard, instead of facing the noose she is offered a deal: her freedom in exchange for her father’s killer.

However, it’s not so simple.

The alleged killer is none other than Cohen McKay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart.

She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer. But Britta wields more power than she knows. And soon she will learn what has always made her different will make her a daunting and dangerous force.

The cover is beautiful. It makes me think of the new adult coloring books!
The synopsis sets up the story in an interesting way. The fact that this is based around a father-daughter relationship makes me want to read it.

A fantasy lover teen boy said the cover was a bit girly for him to take to school to use during reading time but he liked what I told him about the book.

The cover and story line both lure me in for an absorbing adventure -- I love to get away from stress by entering a story completely. With stories like these, presented so vividly to stir the imagination in every particular from the cover design to the prose inside, I am confident I'll be satisfied with the experience of this read. Thank you! Cheers, Kara S
