Summary 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.
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, outlawed magic, and a princess willing to risk all to save her people.
I like the cover, I'm not in love with it but it can pass. I reminds me of BRAVE the Disney Character. The summary completely and effectively sucked me in. Add plus I'm such a Wendy Higgins Fan.
To be honest, one of my first book reviews was the Sweet trilogy by Wendy, and that was amazing.
I love retelling of stories, it makes me appreciate the original piece much more. I'm so curious by this book and the way it turns out with a Hunter and a Princess. I feel like Wendy is following the path of Marissa Meyer with the Lunar Chronicles, but with a whole new and different perspective.
And there is nothing wrong with that, I mean you have to draw your inspiration from somewhere and plus I adore the Lunar Chronicles series.
I can't wait!!!
