Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, the legendary bounty hunter for the King of Malam—that is, until her father is murdered. Now outcast and alone and having no rights to her father’s land or inheritance, she seeks refuge where she feels most safe: the Ever Woods. When Britta is caught poaching by the royal guard, instead of facing the noose she is offered a deal: her freedom in exchange for her father’s killer.
However, it’s not so simple.
The alleged killer is none other than Cohen McKay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart. She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer. But Britta wields more power than she knows. And soon she will learn what has always made her different will make her a daunting and dangerous force.
I love the font on the book cover very much! I'm such a cover person! Reading the first sentence of the summary gave me the feel of Hunger Games. Guess it's the bow and arrow thing. I've just read some of the reviews written by other reviewers--there are mixed reviews going on. It seems like the world building done by the author is good, just that the plot is somewhat typical of a predictable YA book. I guess it's worth a risk to read the book for the world building and that adventures.
