Hunter Forsaken (Wild Hunt #2) by Nancy Corrigan




Review on Goodreads









"A vow to the dead...the mark of the Hunt...a love with one chance to survive."

"Wild Hunt," Book 2

In the slice of a moment, Ian Callahan lost everything he cared about-a deed done by his own hand. He awakens on the edge of sanity, chained in his own personal hell. He is to be the newest rider in the Wild Hunt, if he can learn to control the rage and guilt that consume him.

Then...a whiff of vanilla. The face of a lover he's seen only in his dreams. He doesn't know her name, only that she stirs the hungry beast within him.

For a millennium, Tegan and her sibling riders of the Wild Hunt were imprisoned, suffering under a curse meant for the Unseelie Court. Though her body is free, she carries the curse with her-and the additional burden of finally knowing the name of her destined mate. A human named Ian Callahan.

He's her Trojan horse, the only one who can heal her heart. Just one last challenge stands in the way of claiming each other, once and for all. Failure means facing eternity the incomplete halves of a whole.

"Warning: Contains a hero who's more than just the total...package. And a daughter of the Underworld who thought she knew what Hell was...until she fell in love. Boundaries of monogamy pushed, pulled, stretched-but never broken."




Ms. Corrigan is a talented writer who has the strong ability to build a world full of paranormal mystery. I just unfortunately can’t get along with her writing style which means that this is most certainly me and not the book.
We meet Ian in book 1 he is Harley’s brother, to avenge his former fiancée he joins the Wild Hunt. But he experiences the rage and needs to be locked up until he can be calmed down. For the past 3 years though he has been dreaming about a blonde woman who haunts him.
Tegan has escaped hell, thanks to Harley and Calen in book 1. She is tasked with helping Ian, Ian has been her saving grace for the past three years.  They have their struggles but they get through them together and there are always tough choices and sacrifices that must be made.
This is a reoccurring theme in Ms. Corrigan’s books but there is just too much sex that takes away once again from the overall plot.
For some reason I can’t get above the 3 star mark. This is also the point where I say that I am grateful for receiving the books but I won’t continue. Please note that this is my personal opinion and that it doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things.
