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 freaking loved this! I really think this is Wendy's best book so far! 

I knew about the Grimm fairytale "The Singing Bone" (if you haven't read it and want to go HERE) that the story was based off of so I kinda knew what to expect going in but, I didn't expect to love this so much! Wendy took the story and completely made it new! It still has the basics, kill the beast and win the princesses hand in marriage but that's where it ends. Wendy has built a whole world around this little story and I loved that she told it in multiple POV's! I fell hard for Pax and Leif and don't worry you love triangle haters there isn't one! I just love both of these guys for very different reasons! I also loved Aerity she was an amazing heroine and I truly mean that! She's no damsel in distress waiting for the hunters to kill the beast and save her. She's a fighter, maybe not in a physical sense but more of a political one, although she's pretty kick ass with her acrobatics and a bow and arrow.

I loved the world building and the nations/kingdoms and the magic oh the magic is so interesting! I wish there was more magic in the book but I get why there's not since magic is outlawed. But I hope we get more in book 2! Speaking of book 2 I need it now! I need it to be 2017 already!!!
