Publisher's Summary

In The Great Pursuit, the dramatic sequel to the New York Times best-selling The Great Hunt, Wendy Higgins delivers another thrilling fantasy filled with dangerous enemies, political intrigue, searing romance, and a princess who is willing to do everything to protect her kingdom.

One hunt has ended, but the pursuit of love and justice continues.

The kingdom of Lochlanach has traded the great beast that once terrorized the realm of Eurona for something far more dangerous: the ire of powerful Lashed woman Rosaria Rocato. Rosaria demands that Eurona overturn the laws prohibiting magic, or an innocent will be killed each day.

Despite the king's resistance, Princess Aerity believes they must make peace with the Lashed, and though she's accepted a betrothal to the man who took down the beast, she cannot help thinking about Paxton, the Lashed man who stole her heart and disappeared.

Aerity soon discovers that Paxton has joined Rosaria's army in the war against her family. Though her feelings for him are still strong, her duty to her kingdom and her family is stronger - especially when her parents are kidnapped and she has to step up to the throne and once again put aside what's best for her in order to do what's best for her people. Paxton and Princess Aerity must fight to see what is more powerful: their love or the impending war between the magical Lashed and the nonmagic humans.

Different and very enjoyable

I’ve not read this author before but very much enjoyed the ingenuity and came to love each of the characters as they were developed over the two books. I’m glad I didn’t have to wait in the second since really it’s more of one long novel.

Dragged on too long.

I wished it had more romance than there was. It seemed to concentrate too much on multiple and I mean more than 6 or 7 different POV's that I don't like and I really don't like it when authors feel like the H or h have to seduce the villain, but in this case it was him having to do things, kiss and touching to the bitch that made me want to throw up! The names are weird in this book too so I can't remember but the main love interest weren't hardly together for about 75% which was sad. Narrator did an okay job, I thought. Had a HEA ending for everyone, even Furball (guess I can remember easy names. lol) except the villagers.
