Review: The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan #CREEPYHOLLOW

The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan
(Creepy Hollow #1)
Publication date: October 27th 2012
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult

Enter a hidden world of magic, mystery, danger and romance in this YA fantasy from Amazon bestselling author, Rachel Morgan...

A faerie girl.
A human boy.
A magical world.
A dangerous plot.

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.

This novel was originally published in four separate parts:
Guardian, Labyrinth, Traitor and Masquerade. It includes bonus scenes at the end that were not published in the individual parts.

"With a re-imagined world of faerie, wonderful main characters, a hint of romance, a story that sucks you right in, and the foreshadowing of all that’s to come, The Faerie Guardian is a fantastic introduction to the Creepy Hollow series." ~ REFRACTED LIGHT REVIEWS
"This is one of my new favorites going on my “epic” shelf! Sweet babies, I adored this thing." ~ ABNORMALLY PARANORMAL REVIEWS

"Right now, I just feel like going fangirl over this book. What can I say? ohmyfreakinggoodnessIloveit!!" ~ KONSTANZ SILVERBOW, AUTHOR


This book was enchanting, exciting and kicked ass!

Vi was brilliant. I love strong female protagonists and she took it to a whole new level. Her determination may have landed her in hot water on more than one occasion, but it was that determination that saw her unravel a master plot by some particularly vile creatures. Although the final end to their evil plans is still to be uncovered, Zell and his minions were definitely up to no good, and I'm excited to see where that will lead. 

This story was action-packed from start to finish, with a great sense of mystery surrounding Nate. It was also romantic, with a bit of forbidden love thrown into the mix. There were quite a few twists and turns, and some very heartbreaking surprises, which kept me enthralled. My heart went out to Vi when she was betrayed by the one person she actually felt something for, but I was also happy that she was able to gain back a bit of the friendship she had lost so many years before.

Morgan's world building and descriptive prose brought this book to life and I felt like I was actually stepping into Creepy Hollow, walking alongside the characters as this story played like a movie in my head. It was a spectacular read and I cannot wait to continue with this series.

Packed with spine-tingling intrigue and swoonworthy romance, the plot thickens in this YA fantasy sequel from Amazon bestselling author, Rachel Morgan...

Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is just weeks away from one of the most important occasions of her life: graduation. After messing up big time by bringing a human into the fae realm, Vi needs to step up her game and forget about Nate if she hopes to graduate as the top guardian of her year. Everything would be fine if she wasn't forced to partner with Ryn, her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current 'sort of friend'. They might be trying to patch up their relationship, but does she really want to spend a week undercover with him for their final assignment? On top of that, the possibly insane Unseelie Prince is still on the loose, free to 'collect' as many specially talented faeries as he can find--and Vi is still at the top of his list. Add in faerie queens, enchanted storms, complicated not-just-friends feelings, and a murder within the Guild itself, and graduation is about to become the least of Vi's problems.

Driven by action, suspense, and a strong heroine, this deliciously detailed, bestselling YA fantasy will keep you turning the pages right up until the epic conclusion...

Violet Fairdale is in big trouble. Her home is gone, her beloved forest lies in ruins, the guy she gave her heart to has deserted her—and she doesn’t remember any of it. The powerful Lord Draven is taking over, brainwashing guardians into fighting for him. No one is safe from the evil spreading throughout the fae world.

As alliances are forged between the remaining free fae, Vi struggles to reclaim her identity and figure out where she belongs in this new world. When someone from her past shows up, life gets even more complicated. He brings with him a long-forgotten weapon and an ancient prophecy that places Vi at the center of the fight against Draven. With the future of the fae world at stake, can Vi carry out the prophecy’s instructions before it’s too late?
