The Huntress Kindle Edition
The year is 1585. As a mysterious comet blazes across the sky, one woman embarks on a dangerous mission that could determine the fate of two kingdoms.
Cast out from her clan, fiery Irish warrior, Catriona O'Hanlon has pledged her fealty to the Lady of Faire Isle. But Cat's courage and devotion will be put to the test when Ariane asks her to find the young girl known as the Silver Rose.
Megaera's mystical abilities have become legend, making her a threat to two powerful women, Elizabeth of England and Catherine de Medici, France's Dark Queen. Skilled as a huntress, Cat must bring Meg to Faire Isle where she can be shielded from those who would exploit her supernatural gifts.
Catriona traces Meg to London, only to cross swords with an unexpected obstacle, the girl's own father. Street thief, adventurer, spy; Martin le Loup has played many roles in his life. But he vows that his beloved daughter shall lead a normal, respectable life, far away from the magic of Faire Isle.
As she clashes with Martin over Meg's future, Cat fights her passionate attraction to the handsome rogue. Betrayed in the past, Cat has learned to guard her heart. But the longer she is forced to remain in London, the more deeply she loves and trusts Martin, only to discover that he harbors a dangerous secret that puts them all in jeopardy.
Facing enemies, intrigue and sinister forces unlike anything she has ever known, Cat must risk her life to save those she loves.
The Huntress is the fourth book in Susan Carroll's acclaimed Daughters of the Earth series.

I felt The Huntress was paced very well, the history behind the story is fascinating and I truly admire Susan Carroll's ability to create memorable characters whose fictional lives are woven so well into actual history. Cat is a feisty, independent character who does not grate on the nerves, nor becomes an Irish stereotype. Cat's backstory is a welcome revelation, her friendship with Ariane endearing, her romantic chemistry with Martin spot on, and her budding relationship to Meg enjoyable. Perhaps most of all I love that Cat is a woman who doesn't let either Martin nor Meg get away with much and usually sees right through their tendencies of drama or self-delusion. It makes her believable and sharp witted. Martin's development was also fun to read. Since The Courtesan, we have known Martin as a scrappy, resiliant thief prone to grandiose romantic gestures. As a father, Martin finds himself entering the perfect role, his heroic demeanor no longer a pretense as he honestly seeks to give his daughter the life she deserves. After his disastrous attempts at wooing Ariane's youngest sister Miri, his relationship to Cat is honest and refreshing.
Well paced and with characters that made me truly care about their fates, The Huntress is a wonderful book that helps the series transition its focus from the Ladies of Faire Isle to the next generation. Five stars and highly recommended!
Catherine's short appearances were another weaker point in the book. It did not add much in terms of plot development and the way she was written made her seem as threatening to the characters as a parakeet.
The Cheney Sisters were barely mentioned and Ariane only made a cameo appearance. Miri and Gabrielle, were absent for all of the book with a few short sentences making a few statements about Miri's life. Maybe the author is setting up for Book 5 by not discussing them in this book. Since the series is really about the Cheney Sisters I would have liked for them to be interwoven into the plot.
I have to be honest that I am a little surprised with all the 5 star reviews. The book carries a great deal of flaws. All in all a decent afternoon read but not a book I would recommend or give it a glowing review.
