In the dramatic, romance-filled sequel to The Great Hunt, New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins’s YA fairy tale inspired by the Brothers Grimm's “The Singing Bone,” a new evil emerges as the hunter Pax and Princess Aerity fight to see if their love is more powerful than the war between the magical Lashed and the nonmagical humans.
One hunt has ended, but the pursuit for love and justice continues in the sequel and conclusion to the Great Hunt duology by New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins.
Lochlanach has traded the great beast that once terrorized the realm for something far more dangerous, 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 his true love Princess Aerity.
Aerity believes that without allowing the Lashed to return to the kingdom, revolt is inevitable. And though she’s accepted a betrothal to the man who took down the beast, she cannot help thinking about the Lashed man who stole her heart and disappeared.
But as dire circumstances strike the royal family, matters of the castle are left in Aerity’s hands. And though her feelings for Pax are strong, her duty to her kingdom and her family is stronger. She must put aside her desires to grasp the reins, and take actions that have the potential to save or destroy her people.
The Great Pursuit is a thrilling fantasy filled with political intrigue and searing romance.
