Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill
My review: 4 of 5 stars
An exciting read filled with tension and desperation, Ever the Hunted immediately draws the reader into its world. The story features a feisty, independent and intelligent heroine. Though not complex, the main characters are developed enough to create interest. The plot is simple but action-packed and fast-paced. The premise is not all that unique, but makes for an enjoyable read nonetheless. I picked it up and read it straight through in one day, unable to put it down. I appreciate that it contains no foul language or overt sexuality. It is what I call a clean read, appropriate for teens of all ages. I recommend it for teenage fans of fantasy, adventure and romance. The ending entices the reader to want to continue in the series.
