My Rating: 4 of 5 stars
So this was quite slow and mostly a traveling book. But honestly, I still REALLY liked it and the end has me going nuts- seriously!
Basically we have Britta (yay, her nickname is my name… Britt!) who is a cute scrawny little thing with a backbone for survival. Her father (the King’s bounty hunter) was killed and she literally has no choice but to hunt (or poach) on the King’s land to survive (because… women have no inheritance rights.) Of course this is illegal, and she gets caught. She’s given a choice- she can either hang for her crime or help them hunt her father’s murderer, Cohen. She and Cohen have a history too. She was in love with him before he supposedly killed her father.
So off Britt goes on a journey to try and track Cohen.
Even though this book is 99% travel… there were some redeeming factors. Yes it is slow, and a lot of it could have been skipped over, but at least the scenery and world building was fun throughout. Cohen was interesting and we find out a lot about Britta’s history and family along the way too. Turns out, her father kept several secrets from her.
But yes… as I mentioned, it was slow moving and not a ton happened. I liked some of the slow burn with her and Cohen but I got bored of that after a while too. I loved the writing, the only thing keeping it from 5 stars is it was just a little slow at times. But the ending changed everything for me. So now, I’m super intrigued. The last 10% is pretty action packed and things definitely didn’t go as I thought they would.
And then the last two sentences happened… and I’m over her going nuts… like WHAAAAAAT please tell me this means what I think it means?? I’m all for this drama.. YESSS lets do this lets do this….
But now I have to wait a year :(((
