#Review: THE WILD HUNT by Ron C. Nieto

4 of 5 stars

This was an exceptionally well written fantasy, but it ended abruptly without tying up any of the story lines. I'm not a fan of authors who end their books on a major cliffhanger such as this. My first response is frustration which is not the best emotion to have after reading the book. That's the bad news.

The good news is that this is an engaging story full of magic, myths and legends about the fae. When Lily Boyd goes to visit her grandmother, she has no idea that she will be thrust into the middle of a faerie battle between two courts. When her grandmother goes missing, Lily stumbles around making mistake after mistake while her would-be savior kelpie Troy tries to guide her in her quest. Troy was an intriguing and well-written character and I'm sure there's much more to be learned about him. I didn't find Lily as likeable as Troy, but then again, the poor girl has been through so much in such a short time. I hope in the next book, the author will paint her in a stronger light. Fans of fantasy and all things faerie will enjoy this book, but be warned that it ends on a major cliff hanger.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
