After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta only wants to live a peaceful life in her childhood home. Unfortunately, saving the King has created a tether between them she cannot sever, no matter how much she'd like to, and now he's insisting on making her a noble lady. And there are those who want to use Britta's power for evil designs.
If Britta cannot find a way to harness her new magical ability, her life-as well as her country-may be lost. The stakes are higher than ever in the sequel to Ever the Hunted, as Britta struggles to protect her kingdom and her heart.
Synopsis from Chapters.Indigo.ca
I recently read Ever the Hunted and was not a fan (as you can tell from my review here), but I don't like leaving a series unread and I felt like I owed the books a chance to redeem themselves. While I was pleasantly surprised by the ending of this book, overall this series wasn't a winner for me.
What I Thought:
I liked Ever the Brave better than Ever the Hunted, but a big part of that might have been just because I wanted there to be a resolution. We can also be grateful that this wasn't a trilogy because I can only imagine how much wandering would've taken place if we had a whole other book to fill with a plot. I honestly don't know if these books needed to be longer so that Summerhill had more time to develop her characters and storylines, or shorter so that we're not stuck reading about people traveling back and forth across borders that are supposed to be impassable! Either way, the series is done and at least Britta and Cohen are happily together in the end...
FINAL RATING: 3/5
Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
