the land of the faery, is in an uproar. An evil queen has
been replaced with a more trustworthy ruler, Shay Lee. No
less dangerous than the last, Shay Lee is bent on finding
faery folk and changelings and returning them to their
homeland. Meanwhile, goblins seek to kill off the faeries in
both the human and Fae world.
Bloom’s opted out of Breena’s battle. As a Fae-hunter, she’s
been sent to the human world to track down lost and hiding
faery folk. She also has to battle the evil creatures
seeking to harm the Fae. This includes Adolf, a goblin and
former gigolo to the deposed queen.
Unfortunately, Adolf’s presence puts a damper on the
blossoming relationship between Miki and her would-be lover,
the human Peter Thornton. Well, that and falling in love
with a human is against the Fae law. Becoming entwined in
Peter’s life leads her to his niece, Ciara, a child Miki
suspects is half Fae.
Who in the
Fae world would sleep with Peter’s brother, Roger, an
obvious Fae-hating man? And worse, why would the Fae woman
leave her child behind? The ante is upped when Ciara is
discovered missing and Miki fears the goblin has her. Can
Peter accept Miki for who she is? And even if he does, will
Queen Shay allow their love to continue?
fastest paced story, The Hunter is an original
tale set in Sydney and sprinkled with faeries, goblins, and
sprites. Yolanda Sfetsos has an engaging voice and her
depiction of Peter, by no means an alpha male and yet not
spineless, is enchanting. While Miki is a trained killer,
she’s also not a stereotypical ball-busting action heroine.
Some parts of the plot are left unclear and hanging, but it
is nonetheless, a satisfying afternoon read. On a side note,
I enjoyed the discreet and yet well-done cover art.
