Hunter Deceived (Wild Hunt #1) by Nancy Corrigan



Review on Goodreads





He was born to kill her...but he'll risk all to save her.

Wild Hunt, Book 1

Every day, Harley fights the urge to embrace the dark heritage that could turn her Unseelie. Evil. "Bad." A nightmarish monster like the ones that wiped out her family. The only thing keeping her on this side of Seelie is a promise made to the ghostly man who saved her that terrible night.

Whenever she's tempted, she calls up a vision of his eyes. Hears his voice calling her back from the brink of madness. Years later, when she returns to the scene of her living hell, he's her only hope for salvation.

Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court, not love one of them. He never expected the rightness he felt with her all those years ago would explode into desire.

But saving her from a fate she can't escape could damn them both...and leave the world open for destruction.

Warning: Contains a half-fae woman who could really use a Seelie version of AA to stay clean and monster-free. And a rider of the Wild Hunt who'll take any risk to keep her safe from her enemies. Including himself.




3.5 Hunter Deceived Stars.

The Wild Hunt has begun but due to a trap, the Huntmen/Huntswomen have been suffering for a thousand years. Amongst those are Calen, the leader of the Hunt, his twin Rhys and their sister Teagan.

Calen has been inprisoned and has been waiting for his mate, Harley to return after he helped her escape. He must be set free so that the curse can be reversed and that the Fae, King Dar who has turned Unseelie can be killed by his hand.

Harley born of human and of Dar is so far Seelie but is always on the brink of becoming Unseelie. Her salvation? Her blue eyed ghost that saved her so long ago.

Ms. Corrigan is very talented. She builds a beautiful world with myths and legends that blends into our modern day. The story is well written. At times though the world building was too good and too extensive. There was great character development between the main MCs it was intense and although they had chemistry I felt the focus was solely on them and it took away from the overall plot.

They are all pawns in a game and in the end there can only be one winner.

I loved Ian and can't wait to get me hands on his book.
