Title: EVER THE HUNTED
Author: Erin Summerill
Pub. Date: December 27, 2016
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
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.
Thank you HMH for sending me a copy of Ever The Hunted for review. This in no way affected my opinion.
I decided to reread Ever the Hunted for this review since I read it back in May and it is more breathtaking the second time around. Britta is a survivor and has been raised to be that way. Unlike journey's where the character learns to take care of herself. I appreciate that Britta already knows how to survive. The hunting scenes in this book are spot on. The romance gives you enough tension that you keep wanting more.
Britta thinks the only person she has left in the world to care about has killed her father. She has the ability to sense if someone is lying or telling the truth. She can sense desption. So when she is told that Cohen killed her father as much as it pains her she is determined to seek revenge for the life taken from her.
Erin Summerill gives you a beautifully woven story full of adventure, action, magic, romance, and the unknown. Page 148 dives into this scene where Britta is asked to dance and visually this scene just brought these characters and their chemistry to life. Also for spoiler reasons I will not say too much but page 224 -225 really turns up the swoon. I had been waiting for that moment and let me tell you it was worth the wait. Now I will tell you I love a good Cliffhanger that leaves me wanting more. I know some do not. This story does have a very big twist at the end. I am giving Ever the Hunted 5 Out of 5 Stars and this is one of my favorite books this year.

Erin 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.
3 winners will receive a signed finished copy of EVER THE HUNTED, US Only.
