Corrigan brings forward a brand new take on the Lord of the Underworld and the Goddess of Love. Both as individuals and in their roles in the world they intrigued and enchanted me. This novella is well written with a voice that really put me in touch with the man character. His desolation shone through. Corrigan writes sex as a natural extension of her characters, intrinsic to who they are yet still hot as hell!

Corrigan also gives fantastic historical background between the god and

I think I’ve found my next favorite series. No, I KNOW I’ve found it. Hunter Sacrificed is the prequel novella for Nancy Corrigan’s new Wild Hunt series, and I was totally absorbed in this story for every single page. The fantastical world Corrigan has created is truly amazing, and will capture your imagination and expand your horizons in this fascinating mythological world.

The two primary characters, Arawn and Minerva, are fueled by their overwhelming love and emotion for each other

Arawn, Lord of the Underworld makes a decision that could have him losing everything. He is torn between his duty and his mate, Minevra, the Goddess of Love. He knows what he has to do and makes the ultimate sacrifice, his only hope is that his secret plans will work.

This is a short story but action packed. Anxious to see what happens next. I was surprised by the twists in the story. I think readers will be thrilled with this quickie in the Wild Hunt series.

Arawn is the Lord of the Underworld. He is mated and loves Minerva but he feels his love has kept him from his duty and caused others to suffer. He has a very hard chose to make.

I question Arawn’s chose He will damn his children and betray his love. He makes a deal and the sacrifice is not worth it. In this story I have to wonder if he will ever be reunited with his true love.

Nancy Corrigan's Hunter Sacrificed is an unsatisfying short story that I downloaded free from Amazon. The 50 pages start could lead to a well-developed story, but it ends abruptly without a denouement. I loved the dialogue between Arawn, Lord of the Underworld and Minerva, the Goddess of Love. Ms. Corrigan made me feel Arawn's conflict but this empathy for the character was not enough to overcome the disappointing ending which left me feeling cheated. This is the first book in the Wild Hunt seri ...more

Anyone found this noble? I found it pathetically sad and I regretted reading this right before bed time...Just makes me feel so uneasy and really sad. If you plan to read this series, just go straight to the first book. This novella only gives you a glimpse of what you already know.

Really good!

This book sets the stage for the series! A must read because it brings everything together. I loved Arawn and felt his pain for what he had to do. A really powerful read. Words have power, guard them well. Everything has a price.

Independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock, I was gifted my copy of this book for review.

Arawn, Lord of the Underworld, needs to stop the Lord of the UnSeelie from unleashing his Chaos upon the world. It will require a sacrifice on his part. But Arawn is played byt The Triad. And the sacrifice goes far deeper, and for far longer than Arawn wanted. Now he faces the biggest decision of his eternal life.

This is a prequel to the new Wild Hunt series. When I started reading it I was immediately enthralled. I could not put the story down. I love reading stories of Gods and demigods and strings in their lives. Arawn is the Lord (God) of the Underworld. He was sacrificed long ago to keep the balance in check. His mate is the Goddess of Love Minerva and their love had consequences that the world has been dealing with for a century. The Fairy King has gone mad and is making the humans suffer with him. ...more

The endless question of duty or love...

Hunter Sacrificed is the prequel to the Wild Hunt series. While it has a romance and has an all-consuming love at its center it’s about the sacrifice of love to ensure the salvation of mankind. The story is very short and heart wrenching. Beings as it is the prequel to the series please do not expect an HEA… you will not get one here. You will, however, get a good understanding of who Arawn, Lord of the Underworld is. He is neither evil or good.

The ruler of the Underworld has a hard decision to make in order to save man kind. But his sacrifice will be great. Greater than anything he could have imagined. When the time comes he has to chose duty over love and hope his mate is willing to forgive him.

I thought the story was truly heartbreaking. It grabbed me and pulled me in right away. Knowing he ha to make a sacrifice that could hurt his mate but is needed to be done makes me love and hate the au

If you know anything about Gods and Goddesses of any pantheon, then you will know that things are never smooth and simple. Instead, confusion abounds until such time as it makes sense. This is how I would describe Hunter Sacrificed. It is a short prequel that nevertheless manages to impart a huge amount of information. You learn about Minerva and Arawn, the Triad, and how the Wild Hunt comes to be.

Although this was short, it was very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I fo

Hunter Sacrificed might be a short, fast novella but that in no way makes it an easy read. It will hit you right where it hurts the most or at least for me it did. I didn't expect that and if you asked me last night, I most likely would have said that that was a bad thing, but my days of watching Charmed and finishing the book turned it into a good thing. I won't lie, my heart still hurts but I know that everything was necessary and I am extremely excited to start the Wild Hunt series!

Again proof that love can make one do many things that would otherwise not be done.

Arawn Lord of the Underworld has never known the arms, or love of a woman and when he is finally gifted with love in the arms of Minerva, Goddess of Love, he forgets the balance between good and evil that sweeps the world. Now when he realizes his mistake, he must right his wrong before humanity as we know it is lost.

He makes a deal with the only ones that can allow him to right his wrong,

A cute short story in the Wild Hunt series. The Lord of the Underworld must pay the price for loving Minerva . If he doesn't the humans are doomed, but will he loose his bonded love by doing so ? Although this is a short story, it explains everything you want to know about why he must sacrifice so very much. Makes a gal hate the triad for being so ungiving in every aspect. Looking forward to reading more in this series.

Arawn, Lord of the underworld. Minerva, Godess of love.

In a world where gods,godesses,demi gods ,fairies and angels exist , it's easy to feel overwhelmed and confused but once you've wrapped your head around it , you're good to go ......

I must be honest when I say my heat went out to Arawn and the sacrifices he had to endure , it couldn't be easy and it must be lonely.

Hunter Sacrificed is a good start to the Wild Hunt Series.

Arawn , the Lord of the Underworld

Minerva, goddess of love

"You strengthen me, as I do you"

This was a beautiful story of love, mate ship and choosing duty over all. Arawn chooses duty over Minerva, his love and mate knowing he risks losing Minerva in order to right his wrongs. This is the hardest decision he has had to make and hopes Minerva understands and will be there waiting if and when he returns.

Have to find out the outcome!

4.5 round up
Mistakes made, consequences seen and prices must be paid. How much suffering can you watch before it's too late? The cost is high yet another reason why the decision had to be made. The price is even higher than he bargained for but too late to back out of. Can he make up lost time before it's really too late?
Great beginnings. Wow, just wow.
