This title was previously published and is being rereleased by the author. It has not been revised.

As an assassin for the Dark Fae, Xanthe always wore a mask, hiding her emotions to do her duty. But when her identity is compromised, she trades undercover work for guarding Queen Niniane—a position that often brings her in contact with Chancellor Aubrey Riordan.

A year ago Aubrey’s wife tried to assassinate their new queen in his name, a betrayal of everything he believes in. And now an attack on his life proves the dark conspiracy is not yet over. Although injured and weak, Aubrey can’t help but be drawn to the shy assassin and loyal protector to the queen. Xanthe is everything Naida wasn’t, and the passion she stirs in him is something he thought had long passed him by.


I read Hunter’s Season when it was first published and loved it. 

Even if you haven’t read an Elder Race book you could still pick this novella up, but I would recommend at least reading Books 1 & 2 first in the Elder Races series; since they give you a sense of what is going on in the world. 

Hunter’s Season features Xanthe a Dark Fae Assassin and Aubrey a Dark Fae Chancellor. These characters are secondary characters introduced in the Elder Race series. We meet Xanthe in Devil’s Gate and Aubrey in Storm’s Heart. These two come together to create a lovely and passionate romance. 

This novella was sensational with a heavenly HEA. Ms. Harrison delivers a beautiful blossoming romance; between two very different characters. Their romance builds slowly, is sweet, and adorable. I love how the author put so much attention on their romance. 

I adored Hunter’s Season. The conclusion was satisfying, the romance is charming, and we get a little danger and intrigue too. Harrison shows us just how much love can truly heal. 

The Elder Race series brings us a verity of unique supernaturals, worlds, and so much more. It’s an entertaining series to read or listen too. I highly recommend diving in. 

Rated: 4 Stars

  1. I love this series, though I haven’t read this novella. I haven’t read most of the novellas. I need them to put them into audio. 🙂

    • The Novellas are in audio. Well I’ve only found this one and Devil’s Gate in audio. You can pick up Devil’s Gate and Hunter’s Season combined in one audio called Destiny’s Tarot. I listen too it and enjoyed the audio. I haven’t found the others. If they aren’t out, I’d love them to be in audio.

  4. This series is on my TBR. It’s one of those series that has been on there awhile I really need to get it picked up. Have you tried it in audio?

    • I tried Oracle’s Moon my favorite in the series in Audio and LOVED it. I noticed when looking on Audible that if you have the Romance Package this series, Elder Races, is offered up in it. I’m going to be doing the others in Audio soon.
