The Great Hunt by Wendy higgins Book Review

When a monstrous beast attacks in Eurona, 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. The princess 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-Amazon
This book is one of my favorites that I have read so far! The writing is fast paced and great along with the storyline! I loved Wendy Higgins’ Sweet Evil series and I was very excited to get to this one and as I expected, it did not disappoint!
I loved the diverse characters in this book as well. I rally liked how the author separated her characters from the Sweet Evil series. What I mean by this is, the characters in her books are all unique. For example, the male lead character in the Sweet Evil series is very moody, sarcastic and has a bad boy vibe while Paxton in The Great Hut is silent and conservative. (The Great Hunt and The sweet evil series are set in two totally different worlds)
BUT THE ENDING!!! IT KILLED ME AND RIPPED OUT MY SOUL AND HREDDED IT IN TO PIECES. But the thing is…weirdly enough, I liked it. I saw that a lot of people complained about the ending but people this is a SERIES! There will be more so I hope that out hearts will be cured in a year’s time:( ANOTHER YEAR of waiting…sigh. #BookNerdProblems
I rate this book a 4/5 stars. Such a fun, romantic and action packed read! Highly recommend this to anyone who likes The Selection (IDK why but it has that selection vibe to it) and the Hunger Games! I will be having an interview with Wendy Higgins so stay tuned! Thanks for reading!
