The Great Hunt, #1
Expected: March 8th, 2016
Description from GoodReads:
Kill the beast. Win the girl.
A strange beast stirs fear in the kingdom of Lochlanach, terrorizing towns with its brutality and hunger. In an act of desperation, a proclamation is sent to all of Eurona—kill the creature and win the ultimate prize: the daughter of King Lochson’s hand in marriage.
Princess Aerity understands her duty to the kingdom though it pains her to imagine marrying a stranger. It would be foolish to set her sights on any particular man in the great hunt, but when a brooding local hunter, Paxton Seabolt, catches her attention, there’s no denying the unspoken lure between them…or his mysterious resentment.
Paxton is not keen on marriage. Nor does he care much for spoiled royals and their arcane laws. He’s determined to keep his focus on the task at hand—ridding the kingdom of the beast and protecting his family—yet Princess Aerity continues to challenge his notions with her unpredictability and charm. But as past secrets collide with present desires, dire choices threaten everything Paxton holds dear.
Why I Want to Read It:
I fell in love with Wendy Higgin's first series quite some time ago, and even if it wasn't a retelling I would have rushed to the store on release day to get it anyway! But as you all know, it is a retelling, and I am quite a sucker for retellings;)
I know The Great Hunt releases next week, but boy it feels like it's been forever since it was first announced and I can not wait to read it finally!
That's my Waiting on Wednesday this week! Will you be picking up The Great Hunt? What are you waiting on this week?
