Waiting on Wednesday (#192): The Great Pursuit by Wendy Higgins


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


The Great Pursuit by Wendy Higgins
Book Two of the Eurona duology
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: March 7, 2017

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.




Good grief, this cover looks so fake and stock-image-y. Come on, Harper! Nevertheless, I'm excited for the STORY! I hope Higgins delivers a satisfying ending, after breaking readers' hearts with The Great Hunt

    1. I think that's a great idea, especially given the cliffhanger at the end of The Great Hunt! Less painful waiting. :D

  4. I'm glad there will only be two books. I still need to read The Great Hunt, but I'm in no rush now that it's about to conclude. Great pick!

    1. It's probably better that you might read them close to the pub date of book two! The Great Hunt has a nasty cliffhanger. :D Thank you!

  8. That cover is pretty bad. I haven't read anything by this author before. I hope you enjoy reading this book, Alyssa.
    Thanks for stopping by My WoW earlier.

  10. LOL, I agree about the cover, it's one of the reasons why I'm not really excited about this series. I might read book one some day, though.
    I hope you enjoy it!

    1. Regardless of the cover, the book does sound great, as you said!

  12. You know, this cover reminds me of the covers of two Amanda Hocking books -- "Frostfire" and "Ice Kissed". It's the same type of thing -- a girl is standing in the woods, and is halfway turned toward the viewer. This book's cover designer(s) sure didn't show much originality! Still, I do like the story -- A LOT, in fact. So I'm adding it to my Goodreads shelves. Thanks for featuring this book, since I had not heard of it!! Hope you're having an AWESOME week!! :)

    1. Hmmm, I could see it. Except I like the detailed borders on those books, whereas this book doesn't have any. *sigh* Hopefully the story itself is amazing. :D

      Thank you, Maria!

  13. Remember when Harper had such nice covers??? What happened?
    I heard the first book this week but really struggled with the audio. I think I need to relisten or try to read it instead.

    1. RIGHT?! O_O

      It's good that you might relisten so close to the pub date of book two! The ending of book one is really mean. :/

  14. Ohh awesome pick Alyssa! I didn't read the synopsis too this one because I really do want too read the first book, and hopefully I can read the first book soon. I just know I will really love and enjoy the first book. I hope you enjoy this one Alyssa. Thank you for stopping by my WOW pick.
