Waiting on Wednesday (7) The Great Hunt

Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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.

Why I am waiting?

Have you read anything from Wendy Higgins before? If you have then you know why- if you haven't pick up one of her books. Besides who doesn't love it when a princess tries to break from the script of her life?


  1. I like Wendy's writing, so yeah, I'm waiting on this one too.

  2. I love that this one is inspired on a Grimm Brothers tale ! Great choice :)

  3. I like Wendy Higgins's books and i'm waiting for this one.

  4. Oh yes! So looking forward to this one! I couldn't get into her first series despite all the love I saw for it, but this one sounds like my kind of read for sure! Hope we both love it!

    Here's my WoW

  11. I've never read Wendy Higgins before, or heard of the singing bone either -- will have to check out her books and the story. But you're right, a princess doing her own thing makes for a compelling tale. Here's mine:

  12. I'd not read anything by Higgins before this book, but I loved this book (minus the cruel ending). I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!
