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.
Ever the Divided. Ever the Feared. Ever the Brave.
After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta only wants to live a peaceful life in her childhood home. Unfortunately, saving the King has created a tether between them she cannot sever, no matter how much she'd like to, and now he's insisting on making her a noble lady. And there are those who want to use Britta's power for evil designs. If Britta cannot find a way to harness her new magical ability, her life—as well as her country—may be lost.
The stakes are higher than ever in the sequel to Ever the Hunted, as Britta struggles to protect her kingdom and her heart.
These books were awesome to read! I loved the world, the characters, the writing, the plot, everything was just so freaking amazing! They were both such wonderful books, and I can't wait for the spin off/companion books staring King Aodren and Lirra!
To be honest, I was more captivated by Ever the Hunted than Ever the Brave. It was more exciting, and being introduced to this world, plus the whole, guy she was kinda in love with seeming to be the one who killed her father, thing. Yeah.
The Channelers, yeah, that was all so fantastic to read about! That most of the citizens of Malam are pretty prejudicial against them, yeah, that sucks. But things are looking up-that Britta saved Aodren and all!
Ever the Brave was different in that it had multiple POV's, so attention was spread a little thin. Though it was interesting being in Aodren and Cohen's heads! Because they both played important roles in the book!
Loved reading these two books, and I can't wait for Once a King!
