The Consort: A Fae Hunters Novella (The Fae Hunters Book 1)
by Suzanne Johnson
What is it about:
Summoned to the Royal Palace of Faerie, Liandra arrives full of hope—only to learn that Florian, the Summer Prince, has purchased her as his annual consort. The price charged by her father? A horse.
Fleeing through the veil into the human world, Liandra knows she must not only escape the prince but also the fabled Fae Hunters, ruthless faery warriors whose job it was to track escaped members of the fae and return them to Faerie dead or alive.
Falconer, eldest son of Autumn, gave up his seat on the throne of the Autumn Court to become Captain of the Fae Hunters. Setting up his base in New Orleans, Faulkner—as he now calls himself—runs The Hunt Club, a fantasy nightclub that makes the most of the fae’s illusion magic and serves as a hangout for off-duty Hunters. All is going well…until Prince Florian stalks in, demanding the return of his lost consort.
Faulk takes the case, but soon finds his duty at odds with his heart when he’s ordered to capture Liandra, the grown-up version of a shy, awkward girl he remembers from his youth. Can Faulk turn Lia over to a certain death at the hands of the prince, or will he risk a war with Faerie in order to save her?
From the author of the award-winning Sentinels of New Orleans urban fantasy and Penton Legacy paranormal romance series comes the first in a new novella series, The Fae Hunters.
What did I think of it:
After finishing Belle Chasse I wanted more, so I picked up the novella The Consort.
And I can tell you it's a fun read.
I loved learning more about the fae, both those living in Faerie and those who live in New Orleans.
The story is less dark than I expected, but very enjoyable. I really liked Liandra, and cheered her on while she tries to make sense of the world outside of Faerie. Faulk is the perfect hero for this story and his hunters are cool as well. I'm already curious who the lead character will be in the next novella.
All in all this is a really fun and entertaining novella that will delight fans of the Sentinel series and will make a great introduction for those unfamiliar with Johnson's writing.
Why should you read it:
It's an very enjoyable Paranormal Romance read.
