Book Review: Ever The Hunted by Erin Summerill


Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, the legendary bounty hunter for the King of Malam—that is, until her father is murdered. Now outcast and alone and having no rights to her father’s land or inheritance, she seeks refuge where she feels most safe: the Ever Woods. When Britta is caught poaching by the royal guard, instead of facing the noose she is offered a deal: her freedom in exchange for her father’s killer.

However, it’s not so simple.

The alleged killer is none other than Cohen McKay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart. She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer. But Britta wields more power than she knows. And soon she will learn what has always made her different will make her a daunting and dangerous force.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

The first time I saw Ever The Hunted I fell in love with it already. The cover was stunning and the combination of white and gold is perfect. As I started reading, I already knew I won't be able to put the book down easily.

As a reader one of the things I love reading is about a female character who can defend herself from her enemies and this book has that character. Britta Flannery, smart hunter,  strong and beautiful. She became the king's bounty hunter when she was arrested by the guards for poaching on the king's land, she had reasons why she did that but it wasn't up for discussion. And since she's known as one of the great hunters trained by her father Saul, she was hired to capture her best friend Cohen Mackay in exchange of her freedom. Cohen was accused of killing Saul, and he's hiding since that incident happened. His dagger was found together with her father's cloak. Britta's mission began when she had no other choice but to accept Lord Jamis' offer.

Did that summary catches your attention? I tried my best to give you all a hint. LOL

Another thing that I loved about this book is not just the medieval set up but also the magic and other secrets that this book can offer. I think it was amazing at least it's not just a normal castle soldiers. The twists of the story is something worth reading for! I can't avoid the curiosity on some parts of the book so I had to read it again. THE ENDING THOUGH! that's mind boggling!

Anyway,  I had a really great time reading this book. It was one of my best read in 2016! and with that, I can't wait for the next book .... I don't mind waiting *tries to be patient*. This book is a MUST READ!

My Ratings Summerill was born in England. After spending years bouncing between Air Force bases in Hawaii, England, and California, her family settled in Utah, where Erin graduated with a B.A. in English from Brigham Young University. She had aspirations to write the next great American novel, but writing proved tougher than she first thought. So she grabbed a Nikon and became a professional photographer while crafting manuscript after manuscript. The scenic detour of shooting weddings across the United States, as well as internationally, provided world-building inspiration. It gave her the vision to draft her debut YA fantasy, EVER THE HUNTED. Now when she isn’t writing, or shooting a wedding, she’s chasing her four kids, two dogs, one cat, and five chickens. This could be why she downs massive amounts of Coke Zero and Hot tamales.
