Back Cover Blurb:

He was born to kill her...but he'll risk all to save her.
Every day, Harley fights the urge to embrace the dark heritage that could turn her Unseelie. Evil. Bad. A nightmarish monster like the ones that wiped out her family. The only thing keeping her on this side of Seelie is a promise made to the ghostly man who saved her that terrible night.

Whenever she's tempted, she calls up a vision of his eyes. Hears his voice calling her back from the brink of madness. Years later, when she returns to the scene of her living hell, he's her only hope for salvation.

Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court, not love one of them. He never expected the rightness he felt with her all those years ago would explode into desire.

But saving her from a fate she can't escape could damn them both...and leave the world open for destruction.

Note: Originally published as Hunter Betrayed by Ellora's Cave. It has been re-edited, expanded and re-titled as Hunter Deceived.

Warning: Contains a half-fae woman who could really use a Seelie version of AA to stay clean and monster-free. And a rider of the Wild Hunt who'll take any risk to keep her safe from her enemies. Including himself.

My Review:

This novel is intensely poetic and wildly imaginative. Corrigan draws you into this vivid world of humans and fae and takes you on a wild ride. Her eloquently crafted descriptions bring this story to life in a larger than life, yet easy to picture manner. The storyline is unforgettable and one of a kind. Darkness and light battle in this well-crafted novel. Love, sacrifice and redemption will tug at your heart, keeping you coming back for more. It is a must read for lovers of all things fae.

I loved the characters in this novel. The main characters were quite well developed and easy to get to know. The differing speech patterns really draws a focus to their difference in origins. Corrigan’s development of the wild hunt, both as a single entity and as individuals, provides a very unique secondary cast as well as substance and magic to the story itself.

This is one new series that I’ll most definitely be following closely.
