    1. This cover is entirely gorgeous even if the book didn't entirely work for me. It has female trackers (awesome) but lots of sexism (unawesome) and lots of walking.


    2. I finished edits with my editor, and I'm so excited for this to come out. It's a dream come true to know you're going to be published. I hope ya'll like it, and if not that's fine too because everyone has their preferences. I just want you to know this book means the world to me, and I'm just grateful to anyone who picks it up. Thank you! Luv, erin


    3. This reminded me of several other YA books I love (like Ruined by Amy Tintera), but was also totally its own story. I don't want to say much in terms of summarizing the story, though, because even the most basic plot points don't get revealed until like 65%. The first half of the story set the tone for the series by establishing the war, the two kingdoms, and that one kingdom accepts magic while the other persecutes it. Britta wanders around the wilderness a lot with a guy, but there's no instal [...]


    4. This books was my first 2017 read, so yeah I am out for blood snark.Actual rating: 2.5 starsA guide "How to ruin potentially good fantasy story"Rule #1. First of all, you need to create two Kingdoms and send them to war with each other. Give as little information about these Kingdoms' history and culture as possible. To make sure you've done a proper job, set any other country in place of your Kingdom and if there's nothing distinguishable about the two, then you have truly succeeded in not crea [...]


    5. A solid 4 star read! I really really enjoyed this book! It was definitely a great fantasy novel I would recommend. The magic system was clearly introduced and not at all overbearing to the rest of the story. I did enjoy our main set of characters, though I wish we had a few more important side characters. (Ultimately, there's about 7 or 8 significant characters, 2 are dead, and all but three are barely in the story). I think my only other main issue was that I frequently loss interest in reading [...]


    6. At first I was amazed to see HMH BFYR publish a fantasy book, but then I started reading EVER THE HUNTED, and with every new chapter read, my amazement decreased a little more in amount until there wasn’t any left and I just couldn’t read anymore. Bouhoohoo. I hate you cover, because you're so pretty.


    7. WrensReads Review:This was such a slow burn of a book. Literally 70% of the book was travelling and trying to get from point A and point B. Little Easter-Eggs were thrown here and there and it kept you trying to put things together but the puzzle doesn’t fit until the last 30%.I went into this knowing that it was a girl who loved to do archery and who braided her hair and loved to be in the woods and blah blah blah sounds like a knock off of The Hunger Games, right? Because that was what I was [...]


    8. ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Ever the Hunted surrounds Britta and her search to find her father's murderer. Unfortunately, she is not on this quest because of her own free will; she made a deal with the King's regent. The King of Britta's land is sick, but the King's regent is making some questionable choices that are starting a war with a neighboring kingdom, who are already shunned because a small percentage of the population can use magic. This [...]


    9. THIS. BOOK. HOLY. I loved everything about it and honestly want to cry because what am I suppose to do now with my life now?!?!?Even days after reading this book it is still on my mind. From the world to the characters, I truly loved the entire experience of reading this book. It sorta gave me a little Robin Hood vibe which I wasn't complaining about. My favorite thing about the book is probably the setting. I feel like I don't usually comment on that in books but this setting NEEDS some raving [...]


    10. **FULL REVIEW UPDATE**WHAAAT DOES THAT ENDING MEAN?? So this was quite slow and mostly a traveling book. But honestly, I still really liked it and the end has me going nuts- seriously! Basically we have Britta (yay, her nickname is my name Britt!) who is a cute scrawny little thing with a backbone for survival. Her father (the King's bounty hunter) was killed and she literally has no choice but to hunt (or poach) on the King's land to survive (because women have no inheritance rights.) Of course [...]


    11. *I received a free ARC copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Big thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing!*Rating ~1.5ishWhile this book had a promising premise, it fell victim to far too many YA tropes. And often felt less like Fantasy and more like a teen romance novel with bits of magic and political issues thrown in. The author spent far too much time telling us, rather than showing us, that Britta was a strong, capable, independent young woman. Nothing she did sold [...]


    12. ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Ever the Hunted by Erin SummerillBook One of the Clash of Kingdoms seriesPublisher: HMH Books for Young ReadersPublication Date: December 27, 2016Rating: 4 starsSource: eARC from EdelweissSummary (from ): Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow.

    13. I wanted to like this one so much. Just look at that pretty cover. Unfortunately, there's more to a book than its cover. And inside Ever the Hunted you'll find most, if not all, of the YA tropes out there:✔the beautiful female MC who doesn't consider herself as such: Meet Britta Flannery, a 17 years old girl, with skin as white as snow, as fair as moonlight basically the white, slim girl with pretty skin, light blond hair and blue eyes. She lacks in the boobs department, but that's ok because [...]

      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestFirst, EVER THE HUNTED is nothing new. It's a generic YA teen girl fantasy novel, with a wallpaper background that hints at conflict and magic without really expanding on the world much at all. The bulk of the novel is about the heroine's love-angst with her childhood friend, and whether or not he loves her back and, oh, yeah, whether or not he actually murdered her father.Our heroine's name is Britta. She is the daughter of a bounty hunter and su [...]


    15. Das Buch hat mir zum Ende hin immer besser gefallen ich bin mir aber nicht sicher ob ein Folgeband notwendig ist. Wäre super zufrieden wenn das Buch als Einzelband in sich abgeschlossen wäre - hätte statt 3,5 dann 4 Sterne bekommen !


    16. I thought this one had good writing, but for the majority it felt pretty slow. I did like Britta and felt she was a likeable character. But it took a long time for things to start happening. Like several other books I have read lately, it felt like an opening book for the next one where stuff will get more gripping.


    17. As a YA fantasy Ever the Hunted is perfect for fans of Morgan Rhodes' Falling Kingdoms series.Written lusciously, it is a book that sucks you in right away just because of the wrising itself. It's not complex and hard to follow along. It's magnificently beautiful while maintaining a simplistic flow that grabs readers attention and holds it.Ever The Hunted is the story of 17 year old Britta Flannery who spent her days hunting down criminals alongside her father until he is murdered. All fingers p [...]


    18. Well hello gorgeous. She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer.I think you'll probably be awesome.


    19. 3.5 stars?I was intrigued by the premise of this and even though I usually shy away from fantasy, I couldn't resist. I think it was the hint of a BFF to more plot point. I liked Britta well enough. We're in her head and yet, I still didn't feel like we got to know her. Same with her gift. I chalk all of that up to her not really knowing her ability and us going along for the ride. And yet, somehow it made me not really connect with her. Her relationship with Cohen is tangled up and getting those [...]


    20. DNF @ 20%I tried so hard to get into this book. I got over the writing style. I got over the main characters infuriating name. What I can't get over is how my mind rebels when I want to read, that as soon as the story picks up it drops instantly. At 20% nothing has happened to the special snowflake main character. She hasn't been stabbed. She got shot at once. She couldn't fight the kings men. She's weak. I'm sure there's character development but currently I am not feeling this. Also, I think s [...]


    21. Papa said I had a talent for knowing the honesty of a man's word. A sort of heightened gut instinct. When someone speaks the truth, a warm sensation starts in my belly and spreads beneath my ribs.Welcome to the newest addition of 2017's Special Snowflakes 4Eva list. Here, you will meet Britta, a hunter in her own right but the renown daughter of the bounty hunter of the king. Here, you will also meet a confusing magic system and a cardboard cutout love interest that made me want to hurl.Inge req [...]


    22. If I were ever the hunted, you'd find me. —CohenThe moment I saw Ever the Hunted online, my stomach churned with the desire to buy it. We really should applaud the cover designer for doing a fantastic job. I actually had to buy this book on because it wasn't available in my country when it came out last year. So when it arrived at my doorstep after 12 days of waiting, I couldn't contain my happiness.Ever the Hunted is about an empowered girl named Britta Flannery, whose father has recently di [...]


    23. 2,5 Sterne Vielleicht liegt es an der Anzahl der von mir gelesenen Jugendromane Vielleicht liegt's an mir generell Vielleicht aber auch nicht.Ich hatte ziemlich große Hoffnungen in Auf immer gejagt gesetzt und es ist nicht so, als wäre keine davon erfüllt worden. Im Gegenteil: Ich hatte erwartet, dass Auf immer gejagt eine Geschichte sein würde, die mal ohne Prinzen auskommt, bei der die Protagonistin nicht auserwählt ist, in schicken Ballkleidern durch Paläste zu stolzieren und den Thron [...]


    24. DNF 45% NO RATING I wanted to read this book because, frankly, I saw so many mixed reviews and I feel almost compelled to read books that have mixed reviews to see if my experience is different. I have ended up liking many books a lot of my friends haven't. So, I wanted to find out for myself.The story itself intrigued me. A young girl, Britt, raised by her father to be a hunter has to try and find his murderer. Her father's old apprentice and Britt's childhood/teenage crush is the accused, Cohe [...]


    25. Solid debut with potentiel to get better. The plot was pretty straight forward. We follow Britt as she searchs for her fathers killer in a kingdom on the brink of war. We spend a lot of time waiting or traveling from one place to another which isnt exactly captivating but I did like the chase and trying to evade capture. I also like stories where the characters have to live off the land but the lack of gripping action slowed down my reading pace. I wish the story would have had more action to ba [...]



    26. Edit 50% dnf. 2.75*OK so hear me out. I really tried but I couldn't go any further. It started to feel like a task at like 30% but I forced myself to continue.This book really started off well. I liked the hunting scenes etc but as soon as Cohen coughs*ass* coughs enters, it went downhill. All the cliches popped right out. You know what I am talking abt. I could guess everything from a mile away. Cohen was so freaking boring. I think this book was ruined becaz of him and some things our idiotic [...]


    27. So this book was just a super cute fun adventure. I have high hopes for this author if this was her debut book.So we have Britta, all alone in the world after her father dies and her one and only friend Cohen left before her father died to become an apprentice and hasn't been heard of or seen since. When Britta is found and charged  to the highest degree for poaching-an offense punishable by death, Britta is found at an impossible decisiondie, or exchange her life for Cohen whom she finds out [...]


    28. I obviously got an early copy of this book! Summerill's worldbuilding is stellar and her artful prose tells a captivating story that is emotionally engaging and hard to put down. Excited for a sequel. Totally picture the love interest as Kristoff from Frozen even though I know that's not what he's supposed to look like
