The Silver Stag tells the story of fae bounty hunter Ember, whose life is suddenly turned upside down when her best friend’s brother is missing. What follows is an introduction to the Wild Hunt Agency, a paranormal team focused on ensuring the balance between all paranormal elements in Seattle led by Demi god Herne.
I liked the concept of this book, and the world building was decent however I found the writing and editing poor with almost too descriptive and procedural at points. There are whole paragraphs with driving directions. The author also seems to get stuck on certain concepts and imagery repeating both to ridiculous levels: the word balance in particular is over used. The characters felt very two dimensional to me, and I wasnt compelled enough to want to read the sequel to find out if they are developed further. The main character made no sense to me. She was a paranormal bounty hunter however she had never met any supernaturals beyond goblins before. She also blushed every two minutes except for when she stood naked in front of her love interest.
This is the first book that I’ve read by this author. I can see she has excellent reviews so perhaps it’s just me.
