The Great Pursuit by Wendy Higgins 5 Stars Characters: Aerity: I did a complete turn around on my feelings for Aerity. Now I love her so much! Paxton: Same goes for Paxton. His character just blew me away in this one. Wyneth: My sweet Wyn!!! She's such a sweetie and I wish her all the happiness in the world! Harrison: Harrison was a side character who really shined in the sequel. I really enjoyed seeing more of him. Lief: My bad boy Lief. I will always have a weakness for him. *swoons* Overall: EEEEEEK!!! I loved this sequel with all of my heart. I don't know what happened but I fell in love with EVERYONE. I wasn't feeling a lot of relationships in book one but somewhere along the way I fell in love with ALL of them. So many characters really grew on me within this book. I didn't really enjoy Aerity or Paxton in book one but now they are my little squishes lol!!! Aerity and Paxton both grew so much in this book. I saw their struggles and sacrifices and it made me just love and respect them so much. Wyneth was always a favorite of mine. I loved her relationship with Furball. It just showed how big her heart was to take on this creature and make him a friend. You guys, I don't know how to even write this review. I'm gushing over here. How do I  make sentences?? How do I get my love for this book across???  The action was sooo good in The Great Pursuit. I never felt any dull moments and had trouble putting the book down for breaks. It was constantly moving forward and adapting to tell us the story. I also really enjoyed the villains! I felt myself sneering every time they would pop up lol!! I love that the author was able to make me feel such hatred for the bad guys. At the same time, I couldn't help but fall for the good guys. Characters and relationships you may not have loved in the first one, you definitely will in this one. They all just grew before your eyes and turned into such strong characters that will stay with you.  There's one character who I'm hoping we get to hear more from. I won't mention any names due to spoilers but PLEASE let this person have a book!!! I really hate that this was the last book in this series. I already miss it and I literally just finished the book. This is a book I definitely will be purchasing and adding to my collection asap.

The Great Pursuit is the second and final installment in the Eurona duology written by Wendy Higgins, author of Sweet Evil. 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. I thought it was great that we got third-person POV's in this books because with all that was going on I really enjoyed seeing the different perspectives from the other characters.

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** The Great Pursuit by Wendy Higgins Book Two of the Eurona duology Publisher: HarperTeen Publication Date: March 7, 2017 Rating: 3 stars Source: ARC sent by the publisher Summary (from Goodreads): In The Great Pursuit, the dramatic sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Great Hunt, Wendy Higgins delivers another thrilling fantasy filled with dangerous enemies, political intrigue, searing romance, and a princess who is willing to do everything to protect her kingdom. One hunt has ended, but the pursuit for love and justice continues. The kingdom of Lochlanach has traded the great beast that once terrorized the realm of Eurona for something far more dangerous: the ire of powerful Lashed woman Rosaria Rocato. Rosaria demands that Eurona overturn the laws prohibiting magic, or an innocent will be killed each day. Despite the king’s resistance, Princess Aerity believes they must make peace with the Lashed, and though she’s accepted a betrothal to the man who took down the beast, she cannot help thinking about Paxton, the Lashed man who stole her heart and disappeared. Aerity soon discovers that Paxton has joined Rosaria’s army in the war against her family. Though her feelings for him are still strong, her duty to her kingdom and her family is stronger—especially when her parents are kidnapped and she has to step up to the throne and once again put aside what’s best for her in order to do what’s best for her people. Paxton and Princess Aerity must fight to see what is more powerful: their love or the impending war between the magical Lashed and the non-magic humans. What I Liked: ***SPOILER-FREE REVIEW*** (Well, there will by The Great Hunt spoilers. But not The Great Pursuit spoilers.) One year ago, I read and loved The Great Hunt, with exception of the ending. I hated that Aerity is now forced to marry Lord Leif Alvi, because he (and not Paxton) killed the wild beast. But now, there are more beasts coming for Lochlanach, created by Rozaria Rocato, a powerful Lashed. Aerity and her parents must comply with her demands - burn the list of Lashed names - or face death every night. Meanwhile, Paxton has fled and stumbles upon Rozaria's army. He joins her in order to infiltrate her ranks and gain her trust. Though far apart, Aerity and Paxton are fighting to save Lochlanach from Rozaria - and another unseen dark force, Prince Vito. This novel is told in the third-person perspectives of many characters. Paxton, Aerity, Vixie, Wyneth, even Tiern have exclusive (third-person) POVs at some point during the book. Since the entire book is written in third-person, this wasn't confusing at all and I actually really enjoyed this method of narration. It was interesting because many of the characters were apart and doing their own (important) thing elsewhere, so it was crucial to know what they were doing and how it affected the story overall. Aerity is at the castle, trying to stave off riots and chaos and inevitable war. She is being forced to marry a young lord who is rather promiscuous and really doesn't care to marry her - though he has feelings for her cousin, Wyneth. Paxton, hunter and Aerity's love, has fled, and she doesn't know if he is safe or not. Aerity is on her own at many times during this book, which is critical to her character development.
