Review: Lord of the Hunt - Shona Husk

She Wasn't Cut Out for His World...
The realm of the fairies might be unbelievably beautiful, but its people are notoriously treacherous. Raised among mortals, Taryn hoped to avoid her fairy heritage her whole life. But now she must cross over to Annwyn and appeal to the King to pardon her exiled parents, or they're sure to die. And to get to the King, she'll first have to face the Lord of the Hunt...

He Can't Imagine Life Without Her...
Verden, Lord of the Hunt, is sworn to serve to King. But the moment he sees Taryn, the attraction is instant and devastating. How can he not help the beautiful, brave young woman who refuses to bend to the will of the court? Yet the power in Annwyn is shifting, its magic failing. No matter how much he may love Taryn, the Hunter knows that abandoning his duty could bring down the mortal world forever...

My thoughts:
Verden is Lord of the Hunt, poor thing, I did feel sorry for him later on in the book when I realized that he is not truly free in a way. He does his job and guards Annwyn and looks after the mortal world.

Taryn is a fairy who grew up in the mortal world. Now she is a court to plead for her parent's life and she will do anything to get what they want---To be back. She had a great spirit and I liked her.

These two should not fall in love, he has his duties and she should focus on her quest at hand. Later on you will see why they should have let it be as things evolve. But passion can't be stopped.

I look forward to the next book when the prince finds love :D

Conclusion:
Passion, court intrigues and two lovers caught up in the middle of it all.

  3. Yeah... that cover, I gotta say sometimes a cover can make it or brake it for me. But then I'm also not a fan of fairies. :)

  4. I'm (justifiably, I think) scared of the faeries, but this romance sounds great nevertheless. People falling in love when they really shouldn't. Awesome.

  9. I do love when passion can't be stopped, it usually makes for a delicious story! :-)

  10. Unbridled passion, eh? sounds interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Unstoppable passion, who can refuse that?!

    The hero sounds like he's in need of serious redemption and of course, we all love the tortured ones. Hopefully the Prince finds a love he deserves... damn that sounded sappy!
