Wild Hunt by Erik Henry Vick is the kind of stuff I love to read; bold and wild, the kind of fantasy that creates worlds in the reader's mind. Hank Jensen sets out to save his family, and that is all that matters. At least, this is what he tells himself. But saving family plunges him deeper into a complex battle, one in which he faces vicious and powerful enemies, monumental challenges and obstacles thrown at every step of the journey. He has quickly realized that it wasn't just his family that was at stake, but the fates of Mithgarthr and Osgarthr. Does he have what it takes to keep control of the Rooms of Ruin and save the world from imminent oblivion?
The third entry in Erik Henry Vick's epic fantasy series possesses an originality that is fascinating and I enjoyed the world-building. The setting features well-imagined landscapes, images that suggest magic and the supernatural — there is even a magical feel to the names of characters and places. Fast-paced, and told in an engrossing narrative voice, Wild Hunt becomes a gripping story packed with intense action. It features characters that readers want to stick with, from mythical creatures to unforgiving villains and a hero forging a path through the impossible.
The writing is superb, tight and crisp, with beautiful descriptions that are punctuated with exciting dialogues. The deft handling of conflict is one of the things I enjoyed in this book, and I was keen to see how the protagonist evolved as the conflict escalated through the narrative. Wild Hunt is strong and phenomenal, characterized by physical clashes between powers, yet there is a deeper level of conflict, especially the one taking place in the protagonist's mind that adds to the strength of this narrative. A great read, indeed.
