Series: Eurona Duology
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Romance
Release Date: March 7, 2017
My Rating: 3.5 Stars
Summary From Goodreads: 
Lochlanach has traded the great beast for something far more terrible, a Lashed enemy veiled in beauty, deception, and a vengeance passed down through generations: Rozaria Rocato. And she’s offering the hunter Paxton Seabolt power and acceptance he could never receive in his homeland. Pax must decide how far he’s willing to go under her tutelage, knowing she is the opponent of Princess Aerity Lochson.
In a land where traditionalists dread change, the Lochlan throne must contend with mysterious foes and traitors, while attempting to keep revolt at bay. As dire circumstances strike the royal family, matters of the castle are left in Aerity’s hands. It's time to put aside her fears and grasp the reign, taking actions that have the potential to save or destroy her people.
One hunt has ended, but the pursuit for love and justice continue. In this sequel to The Great Hunt from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, political intrigue and romance intensify in another thrilling fantasy. Princess Aerity embraces a quest for identity and passion before making the ultimate sacrifice for her kingdom.

My Thoughts 

The Great Pursuit is the second novel to the Great Hunt, and follows the story of Aerity and her kingdom in their hunt for the Lashed.

While the overall pacing of the novel was a bit slow, it did have a few plot twists that kept me engaged. I'm usually not a fan of multiple POVs, but I liked the use of them in the Great Pursuit because it made the plot more interesting since it let the reader see what the other characters were involved in. I especially enjoyed reading about Paxton and his undercover adventures.

The characters were well developed, and I liked the different relationships between them. The romance between each of the characters was cute and the family dynamics between Aerity, Wyn, and Vix was nicely done.

Overall, the Great Pursuit is a solid conclusion to the duology and another good read by Wendy Higgins. I highly recommend it for fans of fantasy and retellings with some romance.
