The Story Hunter

Redeeming the past is a fatal quest.

In the wake of a deadly coup, the capital city of Urian has descended into chaos. Heartbreak and bloodshed await Tanwen and her friends as they discover the unlikeliest leader now rules Tir.

If they want to save the realm, Tannie and the Corsyth weavers must rescue Queen Braith and unmask the Master, ending the strife once and for all. But the success of their hunt depends upon an ally no one trusts.

The Master has a new target in sight: fragile, trauma-scarred Digwyn, whose unique weaving ability could turn the tide of any war. When the desire for vengeance proves too powerful for Digwyn to resist, Tanwen must face a terrifying truth: the fate of Tir rests in the hands of a volatile, shattered girl.

My thoughts: Overall, I enjoyed this series, though it wound up being different than I excepted when I picked up the first book. The world building is well done (I especially enjoy the traveling that the group does in the second book) and there are several twists and turns in the story that keep the reader guessing. 
I enjoyed the addition of Digwyn to the story, even though her past is heartbreaking. There is a trigger warning there, though Lindsay handles it well and without a lot of details. Due to her story, I wouldn't recommend this book to younger readers (middle school). 
With all the different stories going on, I wished that the books were a little bit longer to flesh the story out just a little bit more, since I felt like the conclusion was a little bit rushed. That said, it was still a fantastic story that I enjoyed! 
I received this book from the author. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
