Hunted Review...

Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them. 

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. 

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?



This is an enchanting book that is kind of a mix of fairy tales meshed together.    You have a little bit of Beauty & the Beast, some Red Riding Hood and many other magical creatures and tales.  If you like retellings you will love Yeva’s story!
Yeva is the youngest of three girls, the favorite of her father and mother to her two sisters.  When her father loses everything he moves the family to his old hunting camp.  When he disappears Yeva goes in search of him, leaving her sisters in the care of a friend.  That is when she meets the Beast.  The Beast trains her in the art of hunting and tracking.  He shows her a completely different world and she soaks it all up.
I absolutely adored this book!  It was a unique and fun retelling.  The authors writing style was amazing.  This author has written a book that I couldn’t stop reading/listening to it.  I loved the characters and watching them grow together as a whole.  I adored the plot.  There were a few spots where I thought things got a bit off with the flow and the pace, but it didn’t truly affect the book for me.  I will definitely be looking for more books by this author soon.
5 stars!
