Ever the Hunted (Clash of Kingdoms #1) by Erin Summerill (Review)

    In a medieval world of magic and espionage, Britta Flannery is the daughter of the hunter for the king. Well taught in tracking and archery, Britta herself is a force to be reckoned with. When her world is thrown into chaos with the murder of her father, she is forced to hunt one of the two only people she has ever loved in exchange for her own life. Things are made even more complicated with the risk of mysterious magic in the rivalling kingdom. On the journey she will learn of many dark secrets about her father, her past, and the future of her kingdom; and will have to decide if her life is worth killing the man she loved and lost.
     I enjoyed Ever the Hunted quite a bit. I found the narrative voice of the author to be clear and solid, making for some very engaging storytelling. Britta Flannery is a brave character, while remaining human and emotional enough to not be so strong that readers could not empathize with her. Plot wise, the story was chock full of mystery and twists and turns to keep readers engaged with it. I found the partial magical element to the story to be almost unnecessary to the plot but gave a certain spice to the novel that I will not complain about. I enjoyed Ever the Hunted and give it the rating of FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS!
