Book Shelf: The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow #1) by Rachel Morgan

Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day’s work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone—she’s about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until a cute human boy who can somehow see through her faerie glamor follows her into the Fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the Fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot—and it’ll take all her training to get out alive.

The Faerie Guardian is a fantastic adventure tale from Rachel Morgan that features an addicting storyline and fantastic characters and will absolutely leave you wanting more!

I have to say, I’m quite impressed with this series from author Rachel Morgan. Obviously I’ve read my fair share of faerie tales, both professionally published and self-published and this series is actually easily becoming one of my favorites. The story is fun and fresh and endlessly exciting, while Morgan’s writing is crisp, perfect and fitting.

Featuring Violet Fairdale, a trainee guardian and bonified bad ass, this edition of The Creepy Hollow series are the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th volumes together in one book. Having already read and reviewed volume 1 back in March 2012, I kinda already knew what I was getting into with this book. And yet I had no idea some of the twists and unexpected turns Rachel Morgan threw in were coming.

I love the characters in this series! Especially our heroine and leading lady, Violet. Violet is a fierce, brave, kick ass female lead. She’s strong and brave, and incredible fun to read about. She’s intelligent and quick thinking on her feet, with a quick tongue and snarky attitude. It’s slowly becoming evident that she has vulnerabilities as well, as some of the events of this book affect her, but that doesn’t make her any less brilliant to follow and read about.

I’m also a fan of Nate and Ryn, though for very different reasons. Both are more than they seem and it becomes evident as this book unfolds that Morgan has some tricks up her sleeves where these two are concerned. I’m looking forward to see what’s going to happen in the future, though I have a strange feeling I know where things are heading. Not that I’m complaining…..

I was shocked with the unexpected betrayals and revelations, Morgan put her characters through in this book. With various plot developments popping up throughout the book, there are many questions left unanswered and so many directions Rachel Morgan could take her series.

Fans of Aprilynne Pike are sure to adore this one and with the release of the next book The Faerie Prince right around the corner, one thing is for sure….this is one book you do not want to miss!
