Waiting on Wednesday: The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that hilights upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.

Title: The Great Hunt
Author: Wendy Higgins
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: March 8, 2016

Description from Goodreads: A strange beast stirs fear in the kingdom of Lochlanach, terrorizing towns with its brutality and hunger. In an Act of desperation, a proclamation is sent to all of Eurona-- kill the creature and win the ultimate prize: the daughter of King Lochson's hand in marriage.
Princess Aerity understands her duty to the kingdom though it pains her to imagine marrying a stranger. It would be foolish to set her sights on any particular man in the great hunt, but when a brooding local hunter, Paxton Seabolt, catches her attention, there's no denying the unspoken lure between them... or his mysterious resentment.

Paxton is not keen on marriage. Nor does he care much for spoiled royals and their arcane laws. He's determined to keep his focus on the task at hand-- ridding the kingdom of the beast and protecting his family-- yet Princess Aerity continues to challenge his notions with her unpredictability and charm. But as past secrets collide with present desires dire choices threaten everything Paxton holds dear.

Inspired by the Grimm Brothers' tale, "The Singing Bone," New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins delivers a dark fantasy filled with rugged hunters, romantic tension, outlawed magic, and a princess willing to risk all to save her people.

"Rugged hunters,
romantic tension,
outlawed magic,
and a princess willing to risk all to save her people"

What part of that DOESN'T sound absolutely enthralling?

I'm super excited for this one. I love the fairy tale element, and for whatever reason, GREAT HUNT is giving off some Disney's Brave-type vibes, so I'm ready to see what Wendy Higgins gives us! I'm really hoping to snag an ARC, seeing as I'm very curious as to what this story will entail and how it's going to be executed. GREAT HUNT is definitely on my list of most anticipated reads for next year!
