Throwback Thursday: The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins

“Fear was a dangerous, unpredictable weapon.” 

“If we act out of fear and hatred, then the enemy has won. Will you let your hearts be so easily betrayed by darkness? … Do not seek enemies of your neighbors, Lashed or Unlashed.” 

“The truth of everything began to soak into her, like rain, each drop speaking to her. . . . A stranger. A hunter. Your husband.” 

“Do not rise up in fear against the unknown.” 

“Aerity…” Her father paused as if the words he was forming pained him. “I must ask you to sacrifice the promise of love for the sake of our kingdom.”

She could only stare back, frozen.

When a strange beast terrorizes the kingdom of Lochlanach, fear stirs revolt. 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 knows her duty to the kingdom but cannot bear the idea of marrying a stranger… until 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 the marrying type. 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—but the princess continues to surprise him, and the perilous secrets he’s buried begin to surface.

Inspired by the Grimm Brothers’ tale “The Singing Bone,” New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins delivers a dark fantasy filled with rugged hunters, romantic tension, and a princess willing to risk all to save her kingdom.
