Because this book was just so so good.
I have so much love for it. The great Hunt left me wondering so much,and I was literally counting down days until I could get a copy of this one in my hands.
And let me just say... Wendy absolutely blew me away. It was so good... And had so much action and mystery. The keep you on your toes as you read sort of kind too.
I adored Wendy's Sweet series and See Me. And absolutely loved The Great Hunt. So really I shouldn't be surprised that this one was any different.
I loved Wendy's spin on the old Grimm Brothers tale this series is based on, and found myself so wrapped up in this book.
I fought so hard to wait out reading it. knowing I had other ARC'S to get to and such.
but I just happened to have a few free days I hadn't expected, and so I dove back in. (I had been slowly sneaking in a chapter here and there since getting the book)
Once I started The Great Pursuit, I really couldn't stop though. and this weekend was pretty busy with my older sisters baby shower. But I still managed to spend all my time I should have been sleeping buried in the pages of this beautiful and creative world.
Wendy spun such a beautiful world and set of characters, and only managed to expand on that more in this. While we heard of the other lands in the previous book, we really got a chance to step into them, and see the beauty and amazingness of this complex mythical world.I got such a better understanding of how the lands were all set up and connected(Yes I know there's a map at the front of the book. It just gives you a better image when the characters are actually exploring it and taking you through it all though)
But seriously. I just couldn't put this one down (And believe me I tried so hard hehe)
You know when you read a book and it is just so amazingly written that you can picture everything so clearly, like a legit movie in your mind?
That's what this book did.
At the times I did put it down I had to remind myself I was reading a book and not planted in front of my TV or something. the story was that vivid and detailed.
Plus the characters in this book! oh man!! I probably shouldn't even get started on them right now hehe (it's like 2 AM and I have to be up at 7 for class)
But I fell so hard for almost every character Wendy wrote. (well maybe except the despicable baddies that is haha)
Obviously Pax and Harrison were my 2 fav guys. But I also found myself liking Leif and Tiern (though I liked the other Seabolt brother from the start of book 1 too)
And it wasn't just Pax's protective caring either. It was everything about him. How he was willing to do whatever it took to protect Aerity and the kingdom. and his fierceness about everything. I just found this brooding man so incredible kind and sweet at times. And one of those characters you know is truly good to the bone.
Same with Harrison actually. The guy just screamed "I must adore you" lol
His gentle kindness and fierce protectiveness. I loved them both so much.
But I also really enjoyed the girls in this book as well (*Gasp! I know. Me like female characters. no I'm not running a fever I promise ha!)
But you give me some fiery strong girls and heck yeah! I'm on board.
But really, between Aerity, Vixie, and Wyneth, I had a serious girl crush.
They were so fun to get to read. And I know for sure that if these girls were real I would trust them with my life.
Talk about being the opposite of Damsels in Distress.
these 3 knew how to be strong and take care of themselves. and the way they were willing to lay it all on the line for their kingdom was pretty awe-inspiring.
All in all its safe to say I have nothing but good things to say about this book. I absolutely LOVE it (I need to start looking up synonyms for love, adore, and like I think hehe)
Also just let me add... Furball?? he was my favorite part forrealsies. I love that little beast so much!! I officially want one of my own hehe
That and that Wendy seriously knows how to wrote a bad guy. between the Dukes in the Sweet series and Rozaria and the others in this book.... I just I was quite impressed with the despicableness, and her ability to give me some bad guys that I seriously wanted to hate. and strangle. and maim. ya know. the good stuff haha
I give THE GREAT PURSUIT
I enjoyed The Great Pursuit a bit more than The Great Hunt, to me the plot had a lot more action to it and I really liked the story line. I absolutely loved The Brothers Grimm as a child and I think this duology is a very good spin-off of it. I love Wendy''s work and definitely wasn't disappointed!
Aerity goes through a lot of hardships in this book dealing with all the evil her and her kingdom through due to Rozaria Rocato. Not to mention that the one she loves is not the one she could be with. She and her parents try their best to appease both the enemy and the kingdom but doing so isn't an easy task. They have to post-pone the inevitable war to the best of their abilities. Aerity is forced to marry a young lord who's eye's like to linger, which makes things harder on her since she doesn't want to marry him in the first place.
