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.

Where Oh WHERE do I start? I LOVE THIS BOOK. Okay, SO Ever made me forget I was in college or ignore is the correct term. I did nothing NO homework ( woot!), no studying , no prepping, NOTHING. because this book had me hooked and obsessed from the very first page. I have been in the biggest reading slump since A Court Of Mist And Fury came out…in MAY. the first book that I read in a few hours before I read Ever The Hunted was Caraval by Stephanie Garber. IT WAS MAGNIFICENT, my blabbering review will be up soon!
Back to Ever, this is a majestic epic fantasy set in two kingdoms. It starts out with Britta the main character hunting in the forest for food, but not just any land it’s the king’s land. Hunting on the King’s land is forbidden and considered a crime worth killing for. Hence Britta hunts there and shoots an elk, that’s how it starts and I can’t say what happens next because this is where the story all starts picking up its pace and you’re just going to have to read it to find out!
Something that drove me quite insane while reading was that everytime there was a MOMENT, i was so happy then something would happen ( like action that makes you scream at the walls) and I just want to tear my hair out and say YOU ARE RUINING the moment. I mean talk about emotional roller coasters, I was either swooning or screaming while I was reading ETH.
SO , In my honest opinion I believe this is a really good fantasy book and I would reccommend it to anyone! There were somethings I could predict and they came true but that was because I am an analytic, I analyze everything. Like every detail, I analyze it, connect the dots. I took a Literature Analyzing class so it’s a habit for me to analyze and correctly predict outcomes of the books/ movies/ tv shows. Regardless of that I loved this book, it was so much fun to read and I hope you flail with me!
Guys just look at the cover, if you want an incentive, that’s a very good one!!! 🙂 The finished hardcover is glorious so make sure you pre order it! I need book 2, the ending of this books had me like :O OH MY GOD YOU DIDN’T ERIN. AT ALL. I don’t know HOW I am supposed to wait until next YEAR to read what happens but have mercy on my soul.
I would give Ever The Hunted 4 stars because I loved it A LOT, I just needed a little more JUST A LITTLE more. Cohen also pissed me off alot, I still love him though and Aorden. 🙂
If you read it please let me know that you think!! 🙂
