Title: The Great Pursuit
Author: Wendy Higgins
Date of Publication: March 7th, 2017
Lochlanach has traded the great beast for something far more terrible, a Lashed enemy veiled in beauty, deception, and a vengeance passed down through generations: Rozaria Rocato. And she’s offering the hunter Paxton Seabolt power and acceptance he could never receive in his homeland. Pax must decide how far he’s willing to go under her tutelage, knowing she is the opponent of Princess Aerity Lochson.
In a land where traditionalists dread change, the Lochlan throne must contend with mysterious foes and traitors, while attempting to keep revolt at bay. As dire circumstances strike the royal family, matters of the castle are left in Aerity’s hands. It’s time to put aside her fears and grasp the reign, taking actions that have the potential to save or destroy her people.
One hunt has ended, but the pursuit for love and justice continue. In this sequel to The Great Hunt from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, political intrigue and romance intensify in another thrilling fantasy. Princess Aerity embraces a quest for identity and passion before making the ultimate sacrifice for her kingdom.
This series is definitely not my favorite Wendy Higgin’s series, but it is still fun nonetheless. Different concept, but it still has a Princess Bride type feel, which was pretty cool.
I liked this one more than the first book. I felt there was more going on and more action with an interesting plot. The romance felt better in this instead of forced. I am still slightly annoyed with the ocean and sea slang, so I ignored most of that.
Also, I hated Rozaria in this, and the creepiness of her with Paxton. Lief was a douche, but he was also a douche in book one. Harrison is one of my favorite males in the book! Absolutely adored the ending! This was a super fun duology!
