The Great Hunt
by Wendy Higgins
Release Date: 3/8/2016
About the Book
New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins reimagines the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, “The Singing Bone,” with The Great Hunt, a dramatic, romance-filled fantasy in which hunters compete to kill a great beast and win the hand of the princess. When a monstrous beast attacks one of Eurona’s kingdoms, desperate measures must be taken. The king sends a proclamation to the best and bravest hunters: whoever kills the creature will win the hand of his daughter, Princess Aerity, as a reward. Fear has taken hold of the kingdom. Though magic has been outlawed in all five lands of Eurona, people blame the Lashed Ones for the creature that terrorizes their towns. Anyone found with the telltale lash marks under their fingernails is killed, by law. In the face of this upheaval, Princess Aerity recognizes her duty but cannot bear the idea of marrying a stranger–she was meant to marry for love–until a brooding local hunter, Paxton Seabolt, catches her attention. And while there’s no denying the fiery chemistry between them, Princess Aerity feels that Paxton’s mysteriousness is foreboding, maybe even dangerous. Paxton is not the marrying type. Nor does he care much for spoiled royals and their arcane laws. He is determined to keep his focus on the task at hand—ridding the kingdom of the beast—but the princess continues to surprise him, and the secrets he’s buried begin to surface against his wishes. Wendy Higgins delivers a dark fantasy filled with rugged hunters, romantic tension, and a princess willing to risk all to save her kingdom.
