Ever The Hunted by Erin Summerill is a book I took a little bit to get in to, but once the story started I found it both engaging and pedantic. The story centers around Britta and Cohen, two lifelong friends who find themselves on opposite sides after Cohen is accused of murdering her father. With the evidence overwhelming and the choice between the noose or catching her fathers murderer, Britta agrees to pursue Cohen. The only thing is that during her pursuit of Cohen she learns that everything may not be as it seems and that her life, hard though it has been so far, will soon grow a lot more difficult.
Ever the Hunted sets the stage well at the end of the first book for the rest of the story arc. Of course I do have questions and I look forward to seeing those hopefully answered in book 2 and whatever else the author has in store. I would give this book around a B- for a storyline that at times circled back too much in history and whose characters also seemed to be a little too wishy-washy. I like Britta and Cohen’s story but struggled with several of the side characters, especially the Captain and Tomas.
