Oak & Thorns: The Wild Hunt, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Caught between the worlds of Light and Dark Fae, Ember Kearney was born with the mark of the Silver Stag. Rejected by both her bloodlines, she's turned her back on her people to become a freelance investigator. Ember and her best friend, Angel, are led into a glittering world of conspiracy and danger when they are recruited to join the Wild Hunt, run by Herne, son of the god Cernunnos and the Faerie goddess Morgana. Now, Ember must not only face her heritage, but she's bound to preserve the balance between the Fae Courts, for if order isn't maintained, war and chaos will spill out into the mortal realm.
Oak & Thorns: When Herne and Ember are approached by the matriarch of a group of water-horse shifters to help find her cousin's murderer, the Wild Hunt is drawn into a dark and shadowed world of the Ante-Fae. But as the team delves into the details of the grisly death, they uncover evidence of a string of murders that leads them directly into the court of Blackthorn. Caught in a mire of political intrigue and shadow magic, will Ember and Herne be able to bring the serial killer to light, or will the King of Thorns manage to silence them forever?

What felt refreshing and different to me was the pacing and plotting of the mystery. The first book had a mystery element too - bad things happening with no explanation to hand, but the mystery part of this book felt a little more suspenseful and drawn-out.
The strongest part of this book is the professional and personal interaction between the employees of The Wild Hunt. Everyone's work is interconnected. Their lives depend on everyone being skilled and present. They require honesty from each other, which they don't always get to the fullest degree. I'm really enjoying how Ms. Galenorn is building that community, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the characters grow, both individually and as a unit.
Great installment in the series. (Yes, you should start with the first book, The Silver Stag.)
Yasmine Galenorn delivers another pulse pounding ride in her next book in her thrilling new series, The Wild Hunt, in Oak and Thorns. The story is full of new characters and species, a mystery that hints at even more danger and a blossoming romance between Herne and Ember as they navigate the world of the Ante-Fae while trying to keep their necks out of the King of Thorns noose. I just absolutely love this series. Its full of intriguing and diverse characters, a world that is just so fascinating and a storyline that will eave you on the edge of your seat till the very end. This is an author who knows how to reel her readers in and captivate them from the start of the book to the very end. I couldn’t put this book down, even to eat or sleep. I just needed to know what was going to happen to Ember, Herne and the gang.
OAK AND THORNS continues a little bit after The Wild Stag (book one) left off and we got to see more of this world Ms. Galenorn created and it is just amazing. Filled with characters and creatures I never really knew much about, this author brings them to life in a way that left me eager for more after each page I turned. I have to say though besides this masterful world building, the characters are what deliver the most in my opinion. In this second book, we find Herne and Ember trying to navigate a personal and professional relationship, try to figure out a mystery of killings that hint at something bit more terrifying and more. The reader will be on the edge of their seat after chapter two and the action, twists and turns don’t let up till the very end. Then as you close the book, you long for more in this wonderful world. The characters-main and secondary-are all well written and complex individuals that fairly step off the pages and into your room. This is an author who knows how to capture her characters essence and personality perfectly within the pages of a story and keep them fresh and unique. I love how this author just keeps upping the bar in each book she writes and delivers a few more twists in a world that is still evolving within the series.
If you haven’t tried this author’s work before, I highly recommend her newest series, The Wild Hunt, if you enjoy action, mystery and romance that will make you wish for air conditioning or your partner to jump. I do caution in this series her romances are more explicit than some other books she has written so be warned if you don’t care for explicit sex scenes in your stories. The Wild Hunt series is a it darker than her Bedlam series, but it works and is one I am eager to read more about. I can not wait for the next book, Iron Bones, and see where the author goes next in this marvelous world.
This series must be read in order. The first book is "The Silver Stag". This is the second book. I can't wait to read "Iron Bones"!
Ember and Angel are settling in at The Wild Hunt. Now they have to find a house because there just isn't enough room for them in Ember's condo. With a cold case on Whidbey Island it seems like a great time for everyone to get some downtime in nature, so they all are going on a case for once... Even Angel and Talia. Is there a serial killer on the island? Why are all the murders being covered up? What about the missing persons? Who kills humans and sub-cult alike? Will they ever get to the bottom of this huge cover up?
There were a surprising number of typos. The one I found the funniest was when the baddie starts shouting epitaphs instead of epithets. I pictured her yelling "a beloved mother and wife"!
