Magic still lingers in the mist-covered corners of the world, wherever the Old Ways are remembered. However, as civilization and reason scoff at the Fair Folk, the paths to power have been forgotten by all but a few.
Lily Boyd was meant to become a faerie doctor, a warden of humans and a keeper of balance, until disbelief and pragmatism led her away from the hidden world and into a mundane life. But truth has a way to be Heard and she will be forced to face it if she wants to save her family.
Armed with nothing but her childhood memories and protected by a debt of gratitude she doesn’t understand, Lily must decide who to trust while she navigates a world that is darker and more twisted than she is prepared for.
And should she make the wrong choice, should she mistake friend and foe… the eternal balance between the Faerie Courts may shatter, and then there will be more than Lily’s life on the line.
Hello! Today’s post is my review of The Wild Hunt, by Ron C. Nieto.
If you’ve read this book, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
I had both high and low expectations for The Wild Hunt before I started reading.
Low expectations, since prior to this book I’ve actually never read anything from Ron C. Nieto. High expectations since the cover is so pretty. Isn’t that weird? This actually happens to me a lot, haha.
The prologue to TWH was very interesting and truly intriguing. I’m glad that I read the rest of the book.
The characters in The Wild Hunt were interesting. Lily is a character who has shown that she is willing to do a lot of things to get what she wants. What I like about Lily is that when she doesn’t have the answer to something, she makes up one of her own. Lily is intelligent, and I know it’ll be shown more in the second book.
Prior to reading The Wild Hunt, all I actually knew of this novel was what the synopsis reads. Obviously. However, as much as the synopsis doesn’t tell you, there’s way more in the story than the synopsis leads on.
Here are the things that I liked about this novel:
- The storyline moves incredibly quickly.
- Lily’s character growth is something short of fascinating.
- The rumoured bad guy is actually the good guy.
- I couldn’t predict anything beforehand, and the characters made some things in the most underhanded ways.
Although we don’t know much about Troy, I actually really like his character. That’s all I can say since I don’t want to spoil anything!
By the end of the book, the only thing that I didn’t like is that The Wild Hunt ends in the middle of a scene!! Which is a great way to get someone to buy the next book, which I’m totally going to end up doing.
The Wild Hunt captivated me and kept me intrigued in a way that I didn’t think it would. I’m thrilled to start reading the next novel. Hopefully soon!
I give The Wild Hunt, 4 of 5 stars on GoodReads.
