So today I am writing this blog post to review Lords of the Hunt Book 1 in the series of Wild Fae. This series is written by Kate King. I have recently discovered her and really liked her writing. This series hooked me from book 1. So let's go on journey of this amazing world of Wild Fae!!! 

Also I want to talk about the beautiful covers of this book. One is kindle edition and other one is paperback edition and both are just beautiful.

Blurb

Their games will change her. Their love will ruin her.

Lonnie Skyeborne is a human servant bound to the immortal court, until a cruel fairy tricks her into killing the High Fae King...and she finds herself next in line for the throne.

But in the kingdom of Elsewhere, the heir to the throne must defend their crown in the Wilde Hunts: A series of deadly trials where anyone may hunt down the new queen without consequence.

To survive her coronation, Lonnie must bargain with the ruthless fae princes she just dethroned. Prince Scion is arrogant, violent, and guards his own dark agenda. His cousin, Prince Bael, makes no secret of how much he hates Lonnie…but wants to strike a sinfully tempting deal.

Every full moon, the mortal queen fights for her life...all other nights, she guards her heart

MY REVIEW
This story gripped from this first book. The concept of the story the plot everything is just amazing. The story revolves around Lonnie(I don't like that name particularly). She is our FMC and she is a clever liar. Well, she has to be because she has to survive in a ruthless world of Fae and their hunt. So the story starts with her fooling around with a boy on the night of the hunt and she caught attention of the worst members of the Royal Family.

The hunt is kind of a game to chase the crown. Fae all over the realm participate in it and try to steal crown from the current king and the current king try to keep it safe. Whoever manages to have the crown and finishes the crossing line becomes king or queen. So Lonnie accidentally participates in it and kills the king and become queen....totally by accident. Now the real story starts.

She has to live in palace and face the royals. Name three princes who wants to unalive her and then wants to keep her close. I mean their is weird but awesome level of tension is going on in between Lonnie, Prince Bael and Prince Scion. The rest of story focused on how she is trying to survive within the palace and with no friends and no one to guide her.

There is as a matter of rebellion and the Rebel leader is seeking the queen out. But at this time of the story we do not know his identity and we do not know what he wants with her. There is a massive reveal in the last chapters and the book ends with a massive cliffhanger. haha....I cannot wait to dive head first in the next book.

There is no spice or anything romantic going on in this book....no wait......there is a little spice but I won't be spoiling it. The book on the whole is awesome. The world is amazing but ruthless, Fae are like worst of worst. Everyone in this first book is each other enemy...lol....but the slow burn and sexual tension is the best kind I have ever read. It's a 5 star read for me.
