Lochlanach has traded the great beast for something far more terrible, a Lashed enemy veiled in beauty, deception, and a vengeance passed down through generations: Rozaria Rocato. And she’s offering the hunter Paxton Seabolt power and acceptance he could never receive in his homeland. Pax must decide how far he’s willing to go under her tutelage, knowing she is the opponent of Princess Aerity Lochson.

In a land where traditionalists dread change, the Lochlan throne must contend with mysterious foes and traitors, while attempting to keep revolt at bay. As dire circumstances strike the royal family, matters of the castle are left in Aerity’s hands. It's time to put aside her fears and grasp the reign, taking actions that have the potential to save or destroy her people.

One hunt has ended, but the pursuit for love and justice continue. In this sequel to The Great Hunt from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, political intrigue and romance intensify in another thrilling fantasy. Princess Aerity embraces a quest for identity and passion before making the ultimate sacrifice for her kingdom. (Goodreads)

The Great Pursuit is the second book in the Eurona duology by Wendy Higgins, and is also a series that I was determined to read this year. I actually read The Great Hunt back when it was first released in 2016, but somehow forgot to follow up with The Great Pursuit when it came out in 2019. I am thrilled to have finally finished this series!

Last month I re-read The Great Hunt to refresh the story in my brain before starting this, and I’m glad I did, because not only was there a lot to the story that I had forgotten, but it also reminded me about everything I enjoyed when I read the book the first time. This book not only has an interesting storyline, but also has a great group of characters as well!

The Great Pursuit picks up right where The Great Hunt leaves off, and the adventure starts the moment you open the book. (I don’t want to give too much away and spoil anything in the story, so please excuse the vagueness in this review. Ha!) I very much enjoyed reading the story from the two main characters, Paxton and Aerity, viewpoints, and I really loved them both. The story is very fast paced, and full of action and adventure, and a few twists and turns as well! It all wraps up very nicely at the end, and made for a very enjoyable read.

Overall, if you’re looking for a quick fantasy series to check out, you should definitely look into the Eurona duology! The story was interesting, and with only 2 books in the series, it makes for a really quick read. I am now looking forward to reading more books by Wendy, and I’m thinking that I need to start her Sweet series soon! (The books have been sitting on my shelf for too long!)
